  1. You actually got a good point regarding the marketing. I do like the Sprint edition with similar packaging and striping on the three cars in the ad you posted. I just thought of something. With possibility of Mustang being thoroughly updated for 2021MY, wouldn't it be nice if Ford bring back the Sprint package for the Mustang and share the new package with content and striping with other vehicles like say... the Mach-E. This would intensify the 'inspiration' of Mustang to the BEV. I know they are not doing this but interesting that the old ad you showed did have the inspiration of Mustang shared onto the Maverick and Pinto before the Mustang ironically entered the next generation based on the Pinto/Maverick platform. lol The more I hear of the Mach-E and closer it gets to the reveal, the more excited I actually am about the Mach-E. I suppose I can accept the running horse logo and the similar styling, but if it's only called and refer to as Ford Mach-E (with no name of Mustang anywhere on it) but has marketing with ties to Mustang's inspiration, and done the correct way, Ford will have a huge home run with the Mach-E. Ford knows they have to be careful with the Mach-E and how it's marketed to honor the fans. They saw the recent uproar with the original Mach 1 name. There is a video on YouTube done by a pro-Mustang YouTuber where he actually spoke with Jim Hackett and Hackett said there was a time where Ford was lost with the Mustang in terms of marketing and styling so they remember to know to do it right with Mustang. He drives a Shelby GT350 and his wife drives a Mustang GT convertible. He suggested the YouTuber to talk to Bill Ford who is the company's biggest Mustang fan. So I'm confident Ford is doing right with the Mach-E while honoring the Mustang's true purists. The reveal is pretty much a month away if not sooner since November 18th is the start of Press Days for the LA Auto Show.

    Super Duty Tremor 7.3

    The Tremor sure looks nice though especially in that shade of blue! 😎

    Super Duty Tremor 7.3

    Yes I see this article you posted and thanks for that. I figured it was an old article being re-posted since the info about Super Duty Tremor was already announced some time ago.

    2021 Chevrolet Colorado Revealed

    I didn't know GM has no plans for NG Canyorado. I wonder why since they had been doing pretty good until Ranger came around. I thought the 2021 update was just to keep it going until the next gen comes around. But they apparently plan on killing off Canyorado at some point? Didn't hear anything about that.

    TFL/ Bronco news

    Eh, I think I will rather wait until either Ford teases that the Bronco is going to be revealed or a more reliable source announces it. I'm thinking it's actually Bronco Sport crossover that may be revealed as it's the first to rollout within 6 months which would make sense to show it at LA in less than a couple months. The midsize Bronco would likely be shown at Detroit Auto Show in June of 2020 before it goes into production late 2020 and arrive to dealer lots sometime in early 2021. It's also possible that the midsize Bronco may be revealed alongside the Bronco Sport but only in Concept form so that articles would be published with info about both to clarify plans for the Bronco subbranding. Then the Production version of midsize Bronco at Detroit. These guys at TFT have made mistakes before about the Bronco including the full-size rumor based on next F-150 so I'm going to wait until a reliable source announces it whether it's from Ford directly or a user here who is insider.

    news coming....

    Nevermind. Made a mistake.
  8. I am really hoping Ford has plans for a Mustang engine soundtrack for the Mach-E considering it's 'Mustang-inspired'. Drivers having an option to turn it on or off and the soundtrack plays through the sound speakers as if the big block V8 is roaring when the Mach-E is accelerating. I do recall they played the V8 sound effect at the Detroit Auto Show in 2018 where they announced the Mach-E.
  9. Yeah I knew you were and I appreciated that since I thought I was the one having problems not seeing any photos or anything. The forum has been acting odd lately with the 'too many users logged in' error message that prevented me from logging in, to loading up so slow, and not working properly. Just today I came back to this thread and saw that there's now a link to the Facebook page when it wasn't the link at all the first few times I seen it as it was just plain text. However nothing happened when I clicked on the link. Then the forum acted up again with the same 'too many users logged in' error message. I think server issues or something. So I'm glad that jpd80 posted the photo here. Thanks for posting here. I actually think that's a good custom work honestly. Looks nice, I like it.
  10. That's all there was were words that I can see in first post. No pictures or links or anything. Not sure what was supposed to be shown unless it has been deleted. I knew it was humorous because first post shows akirby having clicked the 'laughing' Like button.
  11. I don't see anything nor is there a link. Can someone post a screenshot of the prototype?

    Ford Mustang Mach E and Baby Bronco

    Thanks for the info. I'm a bit of a Mustang purist but even excited about the Mach-E. The idea of Mustang's inspiration for an electric-powered 4-door crossover is a good one. I was not happy at first with the idea of running pony logo but starting to slowly accept it as part of the 'inspiration'. As for the 'Mustang' name on the sill plate, I will hold off thoughts until the actual reveal in November and hear what they say. If they can succeed with marketing and selling the Mach-E as part of Mustang's inspiration as part of the family while still calling it the Ford Mach-E and use the pony logo as in the image you posted, then I can see that working out okay. I'm now actually very excited about this and can say as of now with the info you just provided as well as what I already known for awhile now (aside from the 'Mustang' name on sillplate), I can say Ford may have a huge hit here! :) It actually makes sense to use the 'Bronco' lettering instead of 'Ford' as part of Bronco family of vehicles. I'm excited about this also! Oh, I wasn't even aware that the Baby Bronco was going to be revealed sooner than the Mach-E. I figured at Chicago Auto Show in February as the soonest meaning the Mach-E being the first new Ford to be revealed in November. I'm guessing Baby Bronco will have its own standalone reveal which makes sense and surely the execs will discuss at length in details regarding the Bronco family as well. What did you mean by 'launching'? As in reveal or go into production? Oh, now you got me excited about the new F-150 too! :) If you don't mind me asking, do you know when the next generation F-150 will be revealed and when it will go on sale? Just knowing there's more all-new and refreshed Fords and Lincolns coming with what I already known as from this forum and official Ford announcements as well as what you provided, makes me even more excited and giddy. hehe :)

    August Sales?

    Thanks. Couldn't remember what were the concerns fans had regarding the 2005 Mustang but yes I liked it too. The round headlights along with many other features. So I'm now confident that the new Bronco will be done right and be a hit. Counting down the months until the reveal (I'm guessing Detroit Auto Show in June of 2020).

    August Sales?

    I also agree about that I would rather it be done right than rushed and messed up or ruined. I forget, are you insider/work for Ford or know some sources. Sorry for asking again. I figured it would have the Gen 1 styling and I'm glad it looks different than the Bronco II renderings (you mean Baby Bronco?) that I'm guessing you meant shown by Ford at dealers conference some time ago. I was concerned that the Bronco would have Gen 1 styling but a bit feminine while the Baby Bronco would be even more feminine in styling. But I'll see how the reveal goes sometime next year (I'm guessing Detroit Auto Show in June 2020). As I said above, I'm also glad that the delay is worth it if done right. What you just said though about what you had heard in the past few weeks actually gives me hope considering you work at MAP with the Ranger production where the Bronco will also be built. So I trust that you know some real good inside stuff so I'm giddy with anticipation of the news and reveal of the Bronco. I'm not sure I understand what you mean as in what was wrong about the 2005 Mustang? What were the fears and concerns fans had about the 2005 Mustang or did you mean 2015?
  15. Interesting about your description. I do have a question about the running horse logo: is it exactly the same style of the Mustang or a different variation of the running horse? I ask because you said it will have a different pattern than the aluminum look. Not sure what you mean by aluminum look... the way the Mustang's horse logo is shiny like it's aluminum-made, you mean? As with @Twin Turbo below, I don't like the idea of the exact same Mustang horse being re-used. At least make a variation of it like the Bronco has a galloping horse kicking dirt. I think something like a horse leaping with front feet slightly up in the air as if it's about to leap over something. As if the vehicle is leaping into the future of electrification while still having the soul of an ICE Mustang intact. But with different horse logo and different name of course. That way the Mustang uses the same fast-running Derby horse/wild open-field horse and the electric vehicle (Mach-E) has the leaping forward logo as I mentioned/envisioned. I have no problem with headlight/grille and taillights being very similar to the Mustang to give the resemblance. Like how Porsche did the Panamera as a 4-door front engine/rear drive without actually making a 4-door 911 coupe but yet retaining the soul and look of the 911. But I understand you don't want to reveal too much prior to November's reveal though. Yeah I'm not happy with the same Mustang logo being used if that's the case. Also hoping the Mustang name isn't being used as part of the vehicle's name as well. I am also curious about the next generation (S650 for 2021??) actual Mustang myself if @averagengineer knows and can say.
