Ford Mustang Continues as World’s Best-Selling Sports Coupe, Capturing Title Seventh Year in a Row

DEARBORN, Mich., April 14, 2022 – For the seventh year in a row, Ford Mustang® – which celebrates its 58th birthday this Sunday – is the world’s best-selling sports coupe, according to Ford analysis of registration data from S&P Global Mobility*.

Mustang retains its sales crown for 2021 led by the pinnacle of 5.0-liter V8 performance, Mustang Mach 1, and the track-ready Mustang Shelby®GT500®, the most powerful street-legal Ford in history and the most advanced Mustang ever for street, track or drag strip use.

“When enthusiasts around the world get into a Mustang, they unlock that feeling of freedom and experience the open road,” said Kumar Galhotra, president, Ford Blue. “That feeling, along with iconic design, awesome powertrains and a passionate global community all contribute to making Mustang a sales leader for the seventh year in a row.”

According to Ford internal data, the United States remains home to the strongest demand for Mustang representing 76% of global sales. Other markets that saw growth in Mustang sales in 2021 include New Zealand, up 54.3%, Brazil, up 37.3%, and South Korea, up 16.6%. For those who wanted a Mustang of their own, customers retail orders nearly doubled in 2021 compared to the year prior.

Ford looks to continue this momentum with five new special editions in the lineup, including Mustang Ice White (also available on Mustang Mach-E), Shelby GT500 Heritage Edition, GT California Special, Coastal Limited and Stealth. From Mustang EcoBoost® to Shelby GT500, there is a special edition at every performance level for muscle car enthusiasts.

Mustang gains eight new color options for 2022 as well, including Ford Performance-exclusive Code Orange on Shelby GT500, while Brittany Blue Metallic returns specifically for Shelby GT500 Heritage and Coastal Limited models. Additional new colors are available across the lineup – including Atlas Blue Metallic, Cyber Orange Metallic Tri-Coat, Dark Matter Gray Metallic, Eruption Green Metallic, Grabber Blue Metallic and Mischievous Purple Metallic.

Mustang Mach-E, the newest member of the Mustang family, also had a successful 2021 as one of the hottest products at Ford. In addition to a strong first full-year of sales, the Mustang Mach-E earned a trophy-case worth of press awards, including the coveted North American Utility Vehicle of the Year honor, Car and Driver’s 2021 EV of the Year, 2021 Wards 10 Best award and a 2022 Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Award. Mustang Mach-E was also recently named a finalist for the 2022 World Car of the Year.

Especially with Chevy killing the Camaro and I’m not sure how much longer the Challenger has either. All of dodge maybe out soon too.

For better or worse, the market isn't what it was in the 1960s. Being #1 still rocks!

Mustang will keep going in one form or another. Mustang is to Ford, what the Corvette is to Chevy. Iconic representations of the brand.

Camaro never had that spot IMO. My first car was a 74 Z-28. Last of the real ones of that era.

One thing is for sure. No matter the config Gas, hybrid, electric. We won't have to deal with a lack of Horsepower. They have solved that issue for good.
