- Ford Motor Company celebrated a major milestone Wednesday. And now, the Ford Mustang, an automotive icon, is about to reach a milestone no other muscle vehicle, or no other performance auto for that matter has ever reached - 10 million units!
The iconic vehicle has been around for 54 years now.
FOX 2's Josh Landon was there as the ten millionth auto drove out, a 2019 Wimbledon White GT V8 six-speed manual convertible.
The Mustang has been in production since March 1964, and in that time, has transitioned through six different generations and remains one of the best-selling muscle cars of all time. While an official announcement from Ford has not been made yet and is due tomorrow, the 10 millionth vehicle has already been produced and is of course, a V8.
The Oscars Will Be Adding A New Category To Honor ‘Popular’ Movies
Future broadcasts will be three hours long and will include a new category that is designed around achievement in popular film. We have heard from many of you about improvements needed to keep the Oscars and our Academy relevant in a changing world.
Mustang is the best-selling sports vehicle of the last 50 years in the USA and the world's top-selling sports auto for three years in a row. Now you may wonder why a simple white Mustang without any giant racing stripes would be so special - apart from the 10 millionth vehicle. Ford will be putting it on promotional duty for a while, but its future is uncertain after that.
As far as the 11 millionth is concerned, it could end up being a very different auto. In just a couple of years you'll be able to buy a hybrid Mustang that will be built at Flat Rock alongside an autonomous commercial vehicle and an all-electric SUV inspired by the Mustang, so anything is possible in the future.
