Ford Celebrates As The Mustang Is Named The World’s Best-Selling Sports Coupe For The Seventh Year In A Row
Last week, the Ford Mustang was named the world’s best-selling sports coupe for the seventh straight year.
According to research conducted by Ford and registration data from S&P Global Mobility, the Mustang has retained its sales crown for 2021. Leading the way for the Mustang line is the 5.0-liter V8 performance-based Mustang Mach 1 and the track-ready Mustang Shelby® GT500® - the most powerful street-legal Ford on the market and the most advanced Mustang ever created.
“When enthusiasts around the world get into a Mustang, they unlock that feeling of freedom and experience the open road,” said Kumar Galhotra, President of Ford Blue. “That feeling, along with iconic design, awesome powertrains, and a passionate global community, all contribute to making Mustang a sales leader for the seventh year in a row.”
According to internal data at Ford, the U.S. maintains the strongest demand for the Mustang, representing 76% of global sales of the iconic sports car. Additional markets also saw sales growth for the Mustang, including South Korea (up 16.6%), Brazil (up 37.3%), and New Zealand, which saw Mustang sales rise 54.3%.
Ford is hoping to build on this momentum, creating five new special editions in the Mustang lineup. The automaker is introducing the Shelby GT500 Heritage Edition, Mustang Ice White (also available on Mustang Mach-E), Coastal Limited, GT California Special, and Stealth. There is now a special edition version at every performance level - from the Mustang EcoBoost® to the Shelby GT500.
Aside from the new special editions added to the lineup, the Mustang is also gaining eight new color options for 2022. The Shelby GT500 will come in Code Orange, with the Brittany Blue Metallic color returning for Shelby GT500 Heritage and Coastal Limited models exclusively. For non-special edition owners, additional new colors will be available across the lineup, including Cyber Orange Metallic Tri-Coat, Atlas Blue Metallic, Eruption Green Metallic, Dark Matter Gray Metallic, Mischievous Purple Metallic, and Grabber Blue Metallic.
Stay tuned for further updates and reviews on Ford’s all-new lineup of Mustangs.
