Is Ford discontinuing the Mustang?
Don’t worry, Mustang fans; this iconic American classic isn’t going anywhere. In fact, the 2021 Mustang is going to bring back the Mach 1 after a 17 year hiatus with some upgrades from the Shelby GT350 and GT500, and there will even be a new electric addition to the Mustang family: the Mustang Mach-E.
Ford, the #2 U.S. automaker, will be discontinuing a segment of its vehicles, including the Fusion and Taurus, in favor of a new focus on SUVs and trucks. This is part of a cost-saving initiative that is estimated to save them $25.5 billion by 2022. They plan to take these savings and invest them in even more safety features, as well as telematics technology.
It is estimated that in the next few years, every Ford release will be equipped with internal 4G and a host of autonomous-driving safety features, such as the current Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane-Keeping System. In the future, every new model will have at least one hybrid powertrain option, in accordance with Ford’s commitment to furthering their research and sales of electric and hybrid vehicles.
Those vehicles that are discontinued aren’t necessarily gone forever; Ford has a history of taking models in and out of their lineup, which has recently been demonstrated by the re-release of the Bronco and the return of Ford’s popular small Ranger truck.
