    tzach got a reaction from SoonerLS in Bronco and Bronco Sport World Premier-Who knows when!   
    I would assume that is for when the roof is a different color.  The dealer picture of the orange BrS had what looked like a white roof (maybe light grey).  The order guide said it was available with a black or grey roof.  Maybe the pillars are black either way and they needed a cut line for when it has a grey roof.  I would like to see it available with a rood matching the rest of the car.  i am thinking the pilars will be blacked out always but I guess they could be offered in the car color as well.

    They have got to figure a way to get this here.  Just about every other manufacturer has something like this.  With no focus either the only thing Ford offers at the bottom of the market is Ecosport.  Had one as a loaner and it (an SES) was not that bad but certainly has 0% coollness to it.

    First I said : Will it stop me from buying a Mustang as my next car of course not     Maybe you should read what I wrote before  responding.  
    Second - no one said the Mustang is going away or being replaced that is not the issue.  The issue is that using the Mustang name on the car is unnecessary.  It would get the same boost just from saying it was Mustang inspired and the Mustang design cues.  
    Also this nothing to do with not wanting change, that is silly.  The Mustang has changed a lot over the years and will continue to do so.  This is about putting the name on a CUV. where it does not belong.  
     
    It is done it is a Mustang because Ford says so and that is there decision but that does not mean I have to like it.  The people that like it are entitled to and I don't know why they need to attack those of us that do not like it and just accept that our opinions differ on this.

    Well actually it does and that is the point as far as I am concerned.  The performance is great but it is not the main thing that makes a Mustang a Mustang in my mind.  It is the fact that it is a personal sporty "coupe", it does not have to have high performance to accomplish that.  There are plenty of performance vehicles in all configurations, sedans, trucks, suv's and so on.   The Mach E would of probably sold the same if it was just Mach E.  Keep the Mustang inspired part that is fine, even the horse emblem although I would have changed it a little.  I get why they did it to capitalize o the name recognition to separate it  but the looks and connection to Mustang alone could've accomplished that.  Look in the end it is done I just would not have done it.  Will it stop me from buying a Mustang as my next car of course not, would it stop me from buying a Mach E as my wife's next car, no way I want one.   I just think there would be less opposition from die hard Mustang people although maybe that was part of the point.

    Totally agree, stupid decision with no benefit to either vehicle.  Mustang inspired is fine but calling it a Mustang has no benefit, again to "either" vehicle.

    Point is that this being called Mustang does absolutely nothing for the "Real Mustang" or for the Mach E if it is good on it's own merit.  On the other hand I don't think angry mustang fans are going to hurt it either.  There just is no good reason it could not have just been "Mach E".  To survive the Mustang will have to go electric eventually and there will be no manual, sad but true.  So  I guess eventually mustang could share a platform and more with Mach E but that still doesn't mean it needs to share its name.   So count me among those not happy with this name but if I can swing it this would probably be my wife's next car, she is between this Baby Bronco and Corsair.  Mine of course will be a "Real Mustang".

    Stupid article.  All of the vehicle types he lists as being given up still exist.  Yes sales are less for the Mustang but the Mach E is using it to gain a foothold not replacing it

    Cool they put a stick in it, but we all know an actual production Mustang electric will not have one since there is no need for it with electric motors.  It will be the end of an era.  So sad, but I guess the insanely fast acceleration and max torque from 0 rpm will have to do.

    My opinion is that the original plan was to name Probe "Mustang" no III, but a ton of angry mail changed their minds.  I am not sure if you lived through the era but I did (and wrote a letter) but that was the direction at the time with all of the Asian coups (celica, 200SX, prelude,) being hot and Ford wanting to take them head on.  The final solution was best as they had a direct competitor but kept the Mustang as it was intended and have improved it over the years.  Also all of those other cars including Probe are gone now.
     
    As far as the Mustang logo on the Mach-E, how would those of you that are against it feel about a different horse logo like how Bronco has a horse logo but it is  different.  Mach-E could have a third iteration.

    Styling is obviously subjective and you are certainly entitled to you opinion but to my eye that is an ugly mess.

    That's funny i missed the part where the article said they were selling none.  There is still a V8 or nothing crowd, it is just getting smaller and will continue to shrink.  It's sad but inevitable as not only the technology erases the performance gap but fuel gets more expensive and less people care about the V8's  biggest and best advantage the "SOUND".

    I think the Escape styling  is to grab as many sedan buyers as much as to be different from Maverick.

    Exactly, there is no benefit to creating a Mustang sub-brand that can't be achieved by incorporating Mustang styling cues into other vehicles and a lot to be lost for Mustang if it was created.  Ford can make more new and exciting vehicles without having to dilute the Mustang name.  There is just no reason or benefit to it.

    I love the sound of the V8 engine so much and as a getting to be old guy would buy a V8 Mustang 10 years from now.  But I am sure the intoxicating feel of the instant torque and fast acceleration from the Electric motor would make up for some of that and I would of course buy the electric.  Maybe it will be available with fake V8 sound for us old guys.

    I like it and my wife loves it  we are in our 50's. Also the flex missed yes but I think because it was too wagonish utilities are getting longer and lower now so I think it was just ahead of where the market was going.  Plus millennials are the target market nowadays. I think this will do great. I think when they changed the escape they lost buyers but gained more different ones and this could bring back some of the old one again.
