They ruined it.

It looks like an SUV except it doesn't even look sporty.

To me, it makes no sense to call it "Mustang", but I'm sure they did a lot of focus groups and marketing studies. That's how we end up with things like Beta O'rourke.

Nowadays, SUV translates to station wagon.

It IS an SUV and was always intended to be. They just used the Mustang name and logo to generate attention.

Make an electric Mustang, not call the new Edge E the millennial version of deflection. This takes sheep to the next level. Plastic Media BS.

I love Mustangs. Always have, always will.

Remember this? This was supposed to be the new Mustang.

I can remember when the Mustang was first introduced. It was the coolest thing on rubber even though it was really just a dressed up Falcon.
Ford also used the Falcon name on a van. Everything new is old again.

I'm sure those who just dropped 90K plus on a GT500 are as pleased as they can be to be sharing the name with that ugly piece of poop.

....especially when it outruns them.

Remember the only car Ford is making now is the Mustang, so I can see them using the name. It does resemble the Mustang cars front and rear to a point.

Edsels were cool cars. Not everyone liked the grill, but it was as reliable as any Ford was. The only real problem was the touch button steering wheel trans controls...but you could get it without that. It was just a regular Ford Ford-a-Matic/ Cruise-a-Matic auto trans. I had a 59 convertible and a 59 Villager wagon. both ran fast and trouble free. Wagon was exactly like this one, same colors. 360 ci Lincoln engine w/ 2 4bbls. The look you loved or hated is what killed it.

I saw a video of of it, stationary, at the Los Angeles Car Show. There was again, like in the pic in my first link of the fastback, which looked similar to the current versions. I guess that is the Mach E, the rest being Mustangs. Four door Mustangs . The Charher, though popular, to me died a slow death being a four door.

The muscle car revival was good to a point. I liked the Mustang rebirth, not so much the Camaro or Challenger. At least GM made the GTO remake a 2 door, so I agree, Charger should at least offer a 2 door version. My understanding was Chrysler did research when Charger was reborn, that mostly 30s families would be the market...and that 4 doors were the choice for that segment at the time. The same period also thought the station wagon would make a comeback to those same family demographic, hence the Magnum. Funny that as soon as they killed the Magnum, everyone else popped up with a wagon verson. Quite a few even had the Magnum roofline shape. If I remember even Cadillac CTSV offered a wagon version recently.

Some will say that, but fact is nothing but the drivetrain is shared with Charger. Im not 100% sure, but I dont think even the wheels interchange. Charger is shared with Chrysler 300 and Dodge Magnum. You can for example interchange hoods, doors, front facias among those three. Ive done a lot of swaps for people putting say a 300 front end on a Magnum. In fact in Europe the Magnum was sold from the dealer with the 300 front. Also swapped on Charger front ends to Magnums and 300s. Theyre all simply bolt on swaps.

Mercury did make a four-door Cougar and a Station Wagon.

Thunderbird was also made in a four-door.

Mercury even made a pickup truck in Canada. lol


Ford has a history of experimentation...

Let alone the Lincoln Blackwood, a PICKUP TRUCK. lol

Muscle cars have 2 doors.. Except nothing else. Sports cars don't have back seats.. Quit making exceptions.
This is an electric sedan and while it does look nice and there will be a market there were so many other names they could have used.

If was on the board I would have been doing everything I could to license the name Barracuda lol

Soon all cars will look like horrible boxes. Most wont care, but they are killing the soul of the automobile.
