As Ford Authority reported, 2022 Ford Mustang production began at the Ford Flat Rock Assembly Plant in January 2022. However, production of the ponycar was temporarily paused numerous times including in late January – just a few weeks after beginning – and then again roughly one month later for a total of three weeks.
The Blue Oval has updated the 2022 Mustang with the introduction of the new Ice White Appearance Package, Stealth Edition Appearance Package, and Coastal Limited Package. The 2022 Mustang also received a slightly revised California Special package, while Mustang GT and Mach 1 modes saw a 10 horsepower and 10 pound-feet of torque reduction to their respective outputs.
It is also worth noting that FoMoCo is actively developing the next-generation, 2024 Ford Mustang. As Ford Authority was the first to report, the upcoming, seventh generation Mustang, code-named S650, won’t be available with all-wheel drive and will launch with carry-over engine options. However, two hybrid powertrain options could be added in the future, including electrified versions of Ford’s 2.3L EcoBoost I-4 and 5.0L Coyote V8. In addition, Ford’s iconic pony car won’t be losing its legendary and raucous V8 any time soon.
