We expect the 2022 Ford Mustang to receive several minor changes and updates, representing the eighth model year of the current, sixth-generation Mustang. More noteworthy is the fact that the 2022 model year will likely become the last year of the S550 Mustang.

2022 Mustang Body Styles
The 2022 Ford Mustang will continue being offered in two body styles:
- Two-door hardtop fastback coupe
- Two-door soft top convertible
The mechanically-unrelated Mustang Mach-E will expand the Mustang lineup as an electric vehicle in a five-door crossover-like hatch body style.
2022 Mustang Platform
Like all sixth-generation units of the S550 Ford Mustang, the 2022 Mustang will continue riding on the Ford S550 platform. The platform is solely used by the Mustang.
The platform features a longitudinal powertrain configuration. Rear-wheel-drive is the only drivetrain configuration available.
2022 Mustang Powertrain
The 2021 Mustang will be powered by the following powertrain choices:
- Turbo-charged Ford 2.3L EcoBoost I4 for EcoBoost models
- Naturally-aspirated Ford 5.0L Coyote V8 for Mustang GT models
- Supercharged Ford 5.2L Predator V8 for Mustang Shelby GT500
A ten-speed automatic transmission and a six-speed manual transmission are offered with the EcoBoost and GT models. The Shelby GT500 is offered exclusively with a seven-speed dual clutch supplied by Tremec.
2022 Mustang Production
The 2022 Ford Mustang will continue being assembled by Ford USA at the Ford Flat Rock plant in Michigan.
2022 Mustang Availability
We expect the 2022 Ford Mustang to arrive during the third quarter of the 2021 calendar year.
The 2022 Mustang starting price is expected to remain similar to the 2020 model, which starts at $26,670.
We expect that the 2022 model year will become the last of the sixth-generation Mustang, and that an all-new, seventh-generation model will launch for the 2023 model year. See more on the 2023 Ford Mustang.
