The new generation Mustang will debut in the fourth quarter of 2022 and will go on sale next year. The model is expected to have an eight-year production cycle.

According to rumors, the Mustang will receive an all-wheel drive layout for the first time. Ford’s plan for the Mustang is 2028, when an electric model supposedly arrives. The available information suggests it will have a completely different platform. The timeline assumes that the next generation of models and electric vehicles will be available at the same time for at least a couple of years.
