Contrary to what has been reported in recent times the new Mustang isn’t based on the latest ‘CD6’ rear-wheel-drive platform that is used in the American-made Ford Explorer large SUV – instead, it’ll be based on a “re-engineered” version of the existing platform for the car, which includes the possibility of an all-wheel-drive powered by combustion as reported by the publication. It is believed that the Automotive News report aligns with previous rumors from in the UK and US in the past two years. These rumors suggest an international unveiling of the new generation Mustang in 2022 and a launch to markets outside of the US in 2023. This would make the current “S550” Mustang nearly eight years old when it’s replaced.
