    7th Generation Mustang (S650) Info:

    "Program code for the next‐generation Mustang (S550(ng)) has been changed to S650 and the SOP has been shifted back from January 2022 to May 2020. Subsequently, the EOP for the S550 has been moved to April 2020.

    (See page 15 of PDF report attached)


    Some other great Ford items...

    FORD GROUP

    - Production for the Ford Edge (CD539) has been moved ahead to September 2021 from December 2021. The program code for Ford Edge (CD539(ng)) has been updated to CDX706. In addition,
    production has been moved ahead to October 2021 from January 2022.

    - Current‐generation Ford Escape (C520)’s facelift timing has been moved to March 2016 from June 2015; production will end November 2018. Subsequently, timings for the Ford Escape (C482) have been adjusted at both Cuautitlán and Louisville Truck with SOP December 2018, a refresh for January 2022, and EOP for August 2024.

    - EOP for Ford Explorer (U502) has been moved back to December 2018 from September 2018. This results in a timing shift for the Ford Explorer (U625 having an SOP in January 2019, a facelift for January 2022, and an EOP for December 2025).

    - Rather than the next‐generation Fiesta, the C484 program will be a Small Car to replace the Fiesta at Cuautitlán. The Ford Flex (D471) and Lincoln MKT (D472) EOPs have been moved out three years from December 2015 to December 2018.

    - Program code for the next‐generation Mustang (S550(ng)) has been changed to S650 and the SOP has been shifted back from January 2022 to May 2020. Subsequently, the EOP for the S550 has been moved to April 2020.

    - The lifecycle for the Ford Taurus (D258) has been extended out beyond our forecast horizon to June 2023 from June 2017.

    - EOP for the Lincoln Continental (D544) has been moved from March 2022 to May 2023 and therefore shifting the next‐generation out of the forecast horizon.

    - Added a Large Sedan to the forecast for Lincoln with a program code of CD714, SOP of July 2020, facelift of Jul‐2023, and EOP of June 2026.

    - Lincoln Midsize SUV (U611) SOP shifted from February 2019 to January 2019.

    - The next‐generation Lincoln MKX SOP was moved out from January 2021 to March 2022. The program code was also changed from U540(ng) to CDX707. The facelift for the CDX707 was changed as well from December 2023 to March 2025 and the EOP from December 2026 to February 2028. The U540 EOP was shifted as a result from December 2020 to February 2022 and the facelift from November 2017 to May 2018.

    - The Lincoln MKZ (CD533) EOP was extended from July 2018 to June 2019. The next‐generation MKZ (CD622) was moved from the Hermosillo plant to Flat Rock Assembly with an SOP of July 2019 (was August 2018), facelift of July 2022 (was July 2021), and EOP of June 2026 (was July 2024).

    I don't know where you find this stuff, Top Notch, but I'm sure glad you do :thumbsup:

    Now, excuse my ignorance, but is:

    EOP - End of Programme
    SOP - Start of Programme

    Also......if that May 2020 is the start of the programme, is that a launch date? I assume it isn't when development starts, as I guess that's already underway, or will be soon! :)

    I would love to read some of the older versions of those announcements. Could probably tell when the facelift will be and maybe even what special editions are coming and when.

    Go back far enough and you'd be able to see where they screwed up the release date of the 2015's.

    Interesting find. Thanks Top Notch! Feels like 2011 again when everyone was anxious to hear news of the 2015.

    Now the question I have. Is 2020 the death of the V8 engine? My biggest worry overall which is why I'm aiming to get a Mustang GT sooner rather than later.

    Now, Team Mustang, don't bother too much with the styling proposals for '21MY.....just use this as a starting point (not too sure why this didn't get beyond a sketch for S550!)

    (apologies, I know I've posted this serveral times before, but just want to ensure Ford gets the message :p )

    As mentioned above, P=Production. I am 99% certain because these acronyms are used by the Product Supply people I interact with at work.

    Maybe because that design is atrocious. It looks more like a GM design. Perhaps a Camaro mixed with a Corvette. I'm not getting a Mustang vibe from it.

    Maybe you should stop.

    Wow, you're a happy little camper, aren't you? Welcome to Mustang6g :thumbsup:


    Actually, it's very similar to S550, so I think it has a strong Mustang vide, but each to their own, eh? :)

    I've got to agree with Twin Turbo. To me this looks just like the S550 combined with the New Edge styling. However, I would like to see more modern styling cues in the S650 as opposed to the (IMO) more dated look of the 90's - 00's era Mustang.

    Sorry to come off so harsh. We will have to agree to disagree. :eek:

    Back on topic, things are surely going to get exciting. It's certainly fun to speculate what is coming (including all the off the wall concept art).

    Now, can we all send positive V8 vibes to the '21MY team? Whilst I'd welcome some form of Ecoboost 6, I still want to see a V8 in the next-gen Mustang :ford:

    I guess the one downside of this is the new car won't be around for the 55th birthday celebrations.....which I assume would be in April 2019, unless Ford decide to release a concept, which they didn't for S550.
