2021 Mustang Ordering And Production Dates Revealed

Sponsored

We’re well into the second half of the calendar year, which means that we’ll be seeing 2021 model year vehicles enter production soon. That includes the 2021 Mustang, which returns for yet another year as America’s favorite pony car. And now, Ford Authority has learned exactly when the 2021 Ford Mustang order banks will open, as well as when it will enter production.

2020 Mustang Ordering & Production Dates
Last day to place an order: October 2, 2020
Last day to change an order: October 15, 2020
Last day of production: December 23, 2020

The last day to order a 2020 model year Mustang (pictured) is October 2nd, 2020, and the last day to change an order is October 15th, 2020. The 2020 Mustang’s last day of production is scheduled for December 23rd, 2020.

2021 Mustang Ordering & Production Dates
Order banks open: October 12, 2020
Production begins: January 4, 2021

Meanwhile, 2021 Mustang order banks will open on October 12th, 2020. The car will then go into production at the Ford Flat Rock Assembly Plant on January 4th, 2021.

The sixth-generation S550 Ford Mustang has been in production since the 2015 model year, and is produced at Ford’s Flat Rock Assembly Plant alongside the Lincoln Continental, which is scheduled to be discontinued after production ends on October 30th, 2020.

We’re still a couple of years away from the all-new next-gen, S650 Ford Mustang, which is due to arrive in 2022 as a 2023 model year vehicle. After the car’s last round of updates in 2018, a small 2021 Mustang facelift is expected as a way to keep Ford’s pony car fresh until the all-new, 2023 Mustang arrives.

The 2021 Mustang will also see the discontinuation of the Bullitt and Shelby GT350 variants, as well as the return of the already-announced Mach 1. Slight changes in exterior color choices and trim level features are also expected. Engine choices will consist of the Ford 2.3L EcoBoost I4 for EcoBoost models, the Ford 5.0L Coyote V8 for Mustang GT and Mach 1 models, and the supercharged Ford 5.2L Predator V8 for the Shelby GT500.

Ford’s ten-speed automatic transmission and six-speed MT82 manual transmission will continue being offered with EcoBoost and GT models. The Shelby GT500 is offered exclusively with a seven-speed dual clutch supplied by Tremec. The Mach 1 will offer a Tremec-sourced six-speed manual or Ford’s ten-speed auto, while the Mach 1 with the optional Handling Package will exclusively offer the Tremec-sourced six-speed stick.

    Hi,

    Just wondering if the order dates for Australian Mustangs are the same ? I live in Australia and so curious to know when I can order the 2021 Mustang GT model in Australia and if there will be any changes in regards to features or facelift.

    Thank you.

    Mustang is cheating out the interior of the car. I have a 14 GT premium with trackpack. And it has all leather inside with all chrome door handles And trim around speakers. After they changed to independent rear ended in 2015 they started with brushed aluminum handles that look gaudy and no mustang insignia on door panels .

    It is November now and still no way to order 2021 mustang. I’m sure Henery for would be very dissatisfied and disappointed in the lies about when you are releasing.

    Today, January 4, 2021 is when Mustangs start again being assembled.
    No configurator available on Ford’s website for MY 2021. They are still trying to sell leftover 2020s.
    Good job, FoMoCo!

    I ordered the Mach 1 end of December into January. However, I still don’t see the order associated to my account on the Ford website. Any idea when production of the Mach 1s will begin?
