There's always new Mustang stuff to talk about.
Ford aims to take some news coverage back starting Monday, after GM owned this week with the Hummer EV SUV and an all-electric Silverado. The company will be celebrating the birthday (week) of its most famous nameplate, the Mustang.
The Mustang came out on April 17, 1964 at the New York World's Fair, so every year the brand throws the model a little birthday party around the same time. This year, for the first time, the coupes and convertibles will be joined by a little electric vehicle you may have heard of called the Mustang Mach-E.
So, you can plan on getting some news on both the heritage and modern end of the spectrum. The Mustang Mach 1s are just hitting the streets so we'll probably see something new there. Previous years have seen new trims or options packages, so that's a possibility. New performance parts and accessories are usually part of the party as well.
The Mach-E will be a fun one. We're not sure what Ford is going to do with it, besides allow it at the Mustang cruise on "Mustang Day," April 17. That Saturday the company is partnering with a local Michigan club to tour around the southeastern part of the state. But we're thinking there will be something bigger on that front too.
The coolest part for the history geeks will be some "recently uncovered" documents and transcripts. We can't talk about them yet, but they will shed some light on important relationships within the Ford world.
Sure, we get that Mustang Week is a holiday invented by the Blue Oval to sell cars. But we think that a bunch of enthusiasts getting together to celebrate the vehicles that they love is always a good use of time. And if we get a few new performance details on Mustangs and Mach-Es, all the better.
