    New Fusion rendering?

    Not bad.............but it's just a current gen (for us Europeans) Focus Active Estate with Mach E headlamps. https://i.ytimg.com/vi/MB8ZHzj17UE/maxresdefault.jpg[/img]

    Unifor contract update

    Ah, thank you. Told you I didn't know enough about it lol

    Unifor contract update

    I don't know enough about this, but could it be related to the closure of the Romeo engine plant? I would assume that the 5.2 Predator engine could be built elsewhere but, if not, the 6.8 could be a replacement for that in a future Shelby? The previous GT500's Trinity engine (5.8 Supercharged V8) only lasted 2 model years, so is it possible that Predator will only last 3 model years ('20/'21/'22.......then S650 is launched as a '23MY)

    Unifor contract update

    I agree. This doesn't mean it's going in S650. Ford have already stretched the limits of what a Mustang can be with Mach E, so this could go in another vehicle Ford decides to call a Mustang. However, surely the options are limited? Right now the only Fords with V8s are the Mustang and the F-Series. Would they really badge an F-Series as a Mustang?

    Unifor contract update

    Well, at 22m 14s he is asked what vehicles will receive the new engine and he clearly states "it'll be derivatives of the Mustang and the F150" https://www.dropbox.com/s/w3iex143duqwyi3/Ford TA News Conference-2020.09.22.mp4?dl=0

    Unifor contract update

    https://windsorstar.com/news/local-news/breaking-unifor-and-ford-reach-tentative-agreement "Dias said Ford’s Windsor engine plants will begin producing a new 6.8-litre engine in 2022 for the F-150 pickup truck and the Ford Mustang" I can understand a new 6.8l for the F150, but for the Mustang, too? Surely not?!?

    Mustang S650 news!

    A pessimistic view from this Australian website, stating RHD S650s may not happen. https://www.whichcar.com.au/car-news/ford-mustang-to-leave-australia However, given how several good sources here have indicated S650 will be a heavily reworked S550 (D2C) with selected elements of CD6 I think RHD is still very possible. Besides, if Ford wants to keep hitting that 100k sales target it'd need all the global sales it can get, including RHD. Australia is, I believe, the second biggest market for Mustang outside of North America. Personally, I get the impression that this website just thinks they'll plonk the Mustang body on an Explorer chassis and call it good. The "problem" is Ford never openly discusses future product, so they will neither confirm nor deny this rumor. Heck, Ford UK still states "we have no current plans to sell the Mach 1".......and that's already been spotted in RHD pre-production form! (they said the same about the Bullitt.......but they've sold plenty of them here since!)

    Mustang S650 news!

    I'm getting ahead of myself, but if S650 goes into production in late 2022, I wonder if they'll reveal it for the Mustang's 58th birthday on April 17th of that year. It'd certainly be a cool day to do it (even if that is a Sunday.....yeah, I just checked lol)

    Mustang S650 news!

    ExplorerDude posted this back in April (in another S650 thread) and I think this makes sense. I've not seen "D5" mentioned in any other online articles that I can find, so that's some pretty specific information. "From what I’ve gathered and seen, yes the S650 will be launching for the 2023MY and it’s expected to use the same platform (D2C) which is now called D5. This was done for substantial cost savings. As it is the program is still pretty expensive. But it’s expected to use many CD6 components. Again, apparently using all the CD6 components would’ve made it too big and too heavy. The S650 is basically a new top hat on the same platform with more CD6 components used. I’ve seen a sketch, and it’s not that far off from this article’s illustration. I will say the roofline drops 1 inch to make it even more swept back. It will be gorgeous I can assure you"
  13. https://www.roadandtrack.com/new-cars/future-cars/a33621861/when-is-the-new-mustang-coming-out/ So.... 2022 S650 launches as a '23MY (lasts 3 years) 2025 S650 refresh as a '26MY (lasts 5 years) 2030 S750 launches as a '31MY For reference 2014 S550 launches as a '15MY (lasts 3 years model years) 2017 S550 refresh as an '18MY (lasts 5 years model years)
  14. Would you say that screen in the Bronco is the same size as in the F150? To me, they look as if they have the same width, but the Bronco one looks shorter in height. Could just be a trick of the camera, but it definitely looks a little smaller in the Bronco. Perhaps it's because the Bronco's one is slightly inset?

    Production Week Scheduling Information

    Yes, I'd love to know if there are any changes to the rest of the '21MY Mustangs.......or if its just new colors plus the Mach 1 being added. Thanks again, really appreciate your input
