2020 Mustang Availability
We expect the 2020 Ford Mustang to follow the regular Ford Motor Company model year rollover sequence, and launch in the second or third quarter of the 2019 calendar year.
We expect that the sixth-generation Mustang will live on for at least the 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023 model years, and that an all-new, future Ford Mustang will launch thereafter.
