    Ford will not offer the Hybrid Mustang by 2020CY nor 2021CY. The most recent news (last 2 months) are that the S650 project it’s on an indefinite delay (temporarily cancelled) in order to increase the S550 lifespan due to its success. Apparently Ghostrealm knows more about this information, we should ask him.

    This is something new, so you might be just getting outdated news. Everything moves so fast in this business.

    Hi I actually got told from my friend not to reveal too much about what he said. But he mentioned that there is a major refresh coming for 2025. Thats all he will tell me. I am trying to get more from him in the details.

    Any snippets of information would be appreciated :thumbsup:

    2025 seems a looooooooooooong way away. If that really is the case, then I sincerely hope there's a second refresh on the cards before then, even if its "only" lights/fascias and interior trim.....just to keep things as fresh as possible.

    2015-2017
    2018-2021
    2022-2024

    That would follow a similar(ish) pattern to S197

    2005-2009
    2010-2012 (with all new engines/gearbox for '11)
    2013-2014

    I suspect this is reaching back to the time when the future of CD6 was still fuzzy among the public with rumors of cancellations, etc. During that time, there were some rumors that Explorer might basically be a rebadged Everest placing it on the T6 platform, but they were never more than rumors. (obviously)

    It’s beginning to look more and more like it.

    Good! A true Mustang guy wouldn’t want one any more than a front wheel drive Mustang either.

    I am a true Mustang guy and I’d love to see one. V8 + electricity sounds really cool; we don’t need to have very “old-school” ideas in order to be “real Mustang guy”, however with the FWD I agree with you, that would be just stupid.

    Makes sense. Was wondering why the GT500 would only have a one year run...

    I wouldn't mind that. All they have to do is fix the front bumper and make it look more like the GT350. Basically like what they did with MY 2013. The rest of the car is spot on imho and still will be in two years.

    And like [MENTION=21725]c-rizzle[/MENTION] stated they already have the lower hood in place so it should be an easy redesign. I'm sure the development costs will be worth it considering the extra sales this would generate for the last few model years.

    Nothing is free.

    You want, say, an electric motor that powers the front wheels, creating an AWD Mustang that keeps up with modern, fast cars like Teslas in acceleration?
    The say hello to 400 extra pounds, $10K more in cost, and the destruction of much of the Mustangs dynamic traits.

    Checkout page 14 of this PDF (which was has been presented by Hau Thai Tang over the last couple of days at the JP Morgan Auto conference)

    It shows how future product will be grouped in 5 flexible architectures....and Mustang and Explorer (whilst not spelled out specifically, the silhouettes are pretty obvious) are grouped together in the ICE RWD/AWD unibody. Just a pity it doesn't say when.......

    I don't know if this means anything at all, but this article states the following:

    And according to a Detroit Bureau interview with Ford Group Marketing Manager Corey Holter, there's even a hybrid version of the Mustang coming in 2020.

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/ford-mustang-continues-evolve-keeps-competition-120921963.html

    But they put the first year in wrong - 1965.5 instead of 1964.5 - so who knows how accurate that is, or when the interview they referenced took place.

    One source is suggesting 2022 we'll see a hybrid V8 Mustang.



    Will that refresh be the S650?

    If so then to me a refresh in 2025 means that the S650 will be based on the S550 underpinnings and will therefore go on for another 5-6 years. At this rate we won't see a new clean-sheet Mustang until 2030.
