1. World’s First “Global” Mustang
There’s a simple answer if you were wondering why the brand chose to unveil its car in multiple locations outside the U.S. It’s going to be sold all over the world.
That’s why Ford dumped untold sums into a new chassis. It’s the reason behind the boosted four-cylinder engine, the integrated and independent rear suspension and the smoother body style.
Ford knows the same thing McDonalds does: you don’t need to please everyone as long as sales volumes make up for miffed buyers in some markets. There isn’t long to wait, either. Mustangs will start showing up in showrooms next year and with a host of engines offered with either transmission, it’s hard to imagine this thing being a sales flop.
