2014 Mustang Will NOT Be An Evolution Of The Current Model

“Mustang is an icon in itself. We will also only have a Mustang design language. As we approach what is a very exciting time – 2014 – the 50th anniversary of the Mustang, you can feel the weight on the design team’s shoulders that we get this thing right. It’s going to be a very exciting car, but have very little to do with Kinetic.”

“Approaching 50 years of Mustang – how exciting is that? The ‘64 1/2, ‘65 – that was the absolute greatest Mustang, which was the original. ’66 and ’67, those were great. Everything was on track up until about 1969 with Mustang. We went through some bleak years with Mustang, but everybody hung on because it was a fantastic nameplate. We got the car back up on the tracks, I like to say, in 2005, and that was a big hit because we created a nice balance between retro cues and modern styling. 2010 drove that message home even more. But now we can’t simply do an evolution of the 2005, 2010 cars. 

With 2014 approaching we have got to take a jump forward. We can’t lose the Mustang DNA, which is really important, but we’ve got to signal that Mustang has got another 50 years of life left in it. In order to do that we are going to have take a bit more of a stretch with the car, bring all of our Mustang faithful along with us, and I would be lying to you to say that it’s not a daunting challenge, but the good news is that we’ve got a design team that’s up for the challenge and we’re on it. So stay tuned, and approaching 2013 you’ll see a very cool Mustang.”
