  2018 Ford Mustang EcoBoost Quick Spin Review | Happy Mustang Day! Happy Mustang Day! 

The Ford Mustang Defeated The Whole World .

The configurator for the 2019 Ford Mustang is now live. With it, you can spec out the EcoBoost Mustang , the convertible Mustangs , the EcoBoost premium Mustang , the GT, the GT premium and the Bullitt Mustang . Here are the ones that matter (to me).

I know it’s “cool” and “rad” to complain about modern cars and their computers and safety systems and fake engine noises, but the fact is that the performance-minded buyer has more and better options than ever before. But who leads the pack these days? If you’re talking about sales—which may be the only metric that really matters—it’s the Ford Mustang, for the third year in a row.

Ford released data today announcing that it sold 125,809 Mustangs in 146 countries in 2017, making it the top-selling sports coupe worldwide in 2017. That’s based on new vehicle registration data tracked by IHS Markit from government and private sources, Ford said, and it represents perhaps the greatest threat to Cars and Coffee crowds the world has ever seen. (Sorry, I had to.)

Ford to bring new Mustang to 2019 Cup series

  Ford to bring new Mustang to 2019 Cup series Ford has confirmed that it will introduce the Mustang for the 2019 NASCAR Cup Series. It currently runs the Fusion in the top-tier Cup series and it is the oldest make on the grid after Chevrolet introduced its new Camaro for 2018, a year after Toyota brought an updated Camry.There had been speculation throughout the 2018 season that Ford would introduce a new car and its leading teams such as Penske and Wood Brothers had asked for improvements to the current car over the off-season.The Mustang has already competed in the Xfinity series, but will now replace the Fusion in Cup next year.

When I asked which cars Ford looked at as sales competitors for the Mustang, a Ford rep said: “All sports cars. Porsche, Audi TT, Camaro, Challenger, Nissan, etc.”

Two-thirds of all Mustang sales still happen in the U.S., Ford said, but it’s also the strongest-selling sport coupe in China as well—though only with a paltry 7,125 registrations. (They love their SUVs and huge sedans over there.)

Some good news for enthusiasts: the most popular configuration worldwide is the GT with a 5.0-liter V8, though no word on which gearbox buyers opted for. Also, there’s a 10 percent gain in Mustang sales over the past five years by women buyers when that market has been relatively flat. That’s good. Speed is for everyone, and the only way enthusiast cars will survive the possible electric-autonopocalypse is if they appeal to a wider base of people than we’ve seen traditionally.

Ford Mustang coming to NASCAR Cup Series for first time in 2019

  Ford Mustang coming to NASCAR Cup Series for first time in 2019 Two years ago, it was the new Toyota Camry. Then it was the new Chevy Camaro this season. Now it's Ford's turn to debut a new model for the NASCAR Cup Series. Now it's Ford's turn to debut a new model for the NASCAR Cup Series.

Ford Mustang . Changing the World . That's when you truly understand what is like to drive the most amazing car in the world , even the simplest things like transitioning on to the freeway and accelerating to 70 MPH the sound and the feel of the engine is indescribable unless you drive it for yourself.

Why is the current Mustang selling so well? Well, it’s an icon, it’s more widely available and globally sold than ever, the V8's performance is excellent (and that 310 horsepower turbo four is no slouch these days either), and the current one looks pretty sharp as well.

Your move, Camaro! One wonders what Chevrolet will do, especially from a design perspective, to strike back against the Mustang as it enters the 2019 model year...

Ford Will Focus On Trucks And SUVs, Only Offer Two Cars In U.S. .
It's all about those sweet, sweet profits. Ford’s future product lineup will look sparse if you’re searching for a hatchback or a sedan. The Dearborn automaker plans to eliminate a slew of products – C-Max, Fiesta, Focus, Fusion, and Taurus – while focusing on the higher profits that come with crossovers, SUVs, and trucks. That means eliminating a majority of the brand’s sedans while leaving the Ford Mustang and all-new Ford Focus Active. Currently, Ford loses money on the Fiesta, Focus, and Fusion, according to The New York Times.
