If you’re thinking about buying a Mustang in the near future, you just might want to wait

It’s not often that we give a damn about who or what Ford is hiring, but this time around, a new job posting for an engineer at the Wind/Road Noise and Air Leakage Plant has exposed when the next-generation Mustang will actually arrive. So, if you’re itching to see what the next-gen Mustang will look like, the wait isn’t going to be long at all.

The Next-Gen Mustang Debuts in 2022

It seems hard to believe that Ford would put this kind of information out there for everyone to find, but perhaps the incentive of signing off on the S650 Mustang is more than enough to inspire people to actually apply. The new job listing is for an engineer at Ford’s Wind/Road Noise Air Leakage Plant in Flat Rock, Mi. But what is more interesting is the opening line of the job posting:

“Be part of the proud team to deliver Ford and Lincoln quality on the current model Mustang (S550) and be the final sign off on the Ford 2023 Mustang S650 vehicle program before it goes to the customers.”

The original listing was found on LinkedIn by the folks over at Mustang6G forums nad, if you click on the link, you’ll be directed to one of Ford’s websites with an extended version of the job ad. This comes after a previous report by Automotive News claimed that the next-gen Mustang would come sometime in 2020 and after Ford’s CEO, Jim Hackett, pushed the release back by a year. Now, without any official announcement, it looks like the seventh-gen Mustang is being pushed back even further. It will debut in 2022 as a 2023 model.

Of course, this isn’t as big a deal as it sounds. The current Mustang has only been on the market for five years (it launched back in 2015) and was mildly revised in 2018 while the 2019 Shleby GT350 saw some fairly significant updates in 2019. So, it’s not like the current generation is that old. Plus, there’s also the rumor that a new Ford Mustang Mach 1 is set to arrive sometime in 2020 for the 2021 model year and should actually be revealed sometime in the coming months – possibly at the 2020 Detroit Auto Show. If the Mach 1 Mustang slated for debut this year isn’t a hybrid model, you can also expect a hybrid V-8 mustang to arrive sometime this year as well.

For now, we know absolutely nothing about the next-gen Mustang outside of the fact that it’s, obviously, already in development. As we learn more, we’ll be sure to bring it to you, so stay tuned!
