    Why would you destroy the name Mustang with a dumb SUV. Horrible!

    Well, If they want to keep the MUSTANG name alive, they must comply with the NEW WORLD ORDER.
    This project is to keep all government off their back.
    The suv will be 65,000 to 80,000+
    Ford is so far behind the 8 ball it wont matter much anyway...….
    When VW buys them it wont matter much other than the name plate to use for future projects.
    Anyone love a GT2...…...They would never be able to build it unless 75% of ALL future Porsche are electric in some form over the next 4 years.
    Its the new world order...….
    Back to the Mustang, If they made a Hybrid like EVERYONE else they would be spared but,the company is LOST , to say the least.
    Wait till you kids see the interior...….ITS MILLENIAL video screen heaven.

    IMO, if the car is "so good" you don't need to make it look like a Mustang or put the pony on it.

    Ford has turned the Mustang into a marketing gimmick. This was all dreamed up by Ford's marketing department and bean counters.

    Sad

    The only electric vehicle I'll ever buy is a wheel chair....but if they make this they are going to sell very well.

    I hasn't curbed my desire to buy a new Mustang at all.

    May be a bestseller. But it degrades the mustang even worse than the third generation could. Why not just a non-SUV hybrid or electric mustang?

    Maybe if Ford had a Shelby GT350 or GT500 variant of this, it MIGHT make for a worthy ride. I hate the Stelvio, but love the Stelvio Quadrifolio. Grand Cherokee is just OK, but the SRT and Trackmaster, are very nice.

    They should have just called this the Taurus. That's basically the segment they are aiming it at, and then they could make the performance version the SHO.

    Calling a jacked up station wagon a Mustang is just nonsense.

    Why not call it the new ford focus.
    Its the most cynical marketing BS I have yet to see.
    All theyre doing is eroding real mustang sales by debasing the meaning/

    Why wouldn't you run an ELECTRIC MUSTANG IN A CAR FORM?
    On the same line side by side, the past and the future THAT WOULD SELL.....
    Sadly Ford is clueless and really in a sad state.
    P.S. THE ELECTRIC CORVETTE IS COMING SOON...…

    Its not for me, but I bet branding it Mustang makes it a much bigger success than if branded otherwise...and will not reduce real Mustang sales at all. A win/win for Ford.

    I know, I know...Ford is raping your childhood....

    Not a fan, but the positive brand association will contribute to early buzz and sales.

    The taillights are mustang, the rear haunches are vaguely mustang and better than generic sub, the front end is vaguely current mustang. Is that what makes a mustang.

    not saying every mustang has to be a 2 door coupe or even ice. But this ain’t no mustang.
