Will the crossover market receive a pony upgrade? Rumors swirl that Ford is planning to fuse its all-terrain fleet with a Mustang sensibility… and critics are thrilled.
According to Fox News, Ford is debating a radical new production strategy - with its focus shifting from traditional sedans and hatchbacks to crossovers. This will soon translate to an influx of all-wheel powerhouses... and the Mustang may be among them. Speculations have flooded the automotive market, with critics and pony-fans each considering the merits of a big-wheeled platform; and, while no official confirmation has been given, many believe that the odds are favorable.
As Fox News explains, critics agree that a Mustang SUV would fit seamlessly into the brand’s fleet - particularly because it could share the same body-on-frame construction as Ford’s leading platform: the Explorer. Rumors of a shared unibody chassis are gaining momentum, and many anticipate that this model will deliver similar performance capabilities (including an all-wheel-drive, a 10-speed automatic transmission, and a robust V6). HP ratios should exceed 350.
We’ll admit: we’re excited.
Should Ford choose to fuse the Mustang with off-road capabilities, the Seattle market will be forever changed - and so will our dealership. To learn more about this model contact our team today!
