Next-Generation Ford Mustang To Arrive As Early As 2022

An internal goof-up for a job posting accidentally reveals that an all-new Ford Mustang is on the way for 2022.

  • A Ford job posting reveals a new S650 Ford Mustang will launch for the 2023 model year.
  • Said job posting, originally posted on LinkedIn, is no longer available.
  • Initially, it was thought that a new Mustang was not in the cards before 2026.

This could be called one heck of a mess-up on behalf of Ford’s Human Resources department. Ford was looking to hire a “Wind/Road Noise and Air Leakage Plant Vehicle Team (PVT) Engineer” for a future product at its Flat Rock, Michigan assembly plant. The post continues with an invitation to be part of the team working on the S550 Mustang and “be the final sign off on the Ford 2023 Mustang S650. That’s right, the all-new next-generation Ford Mustang.

The job posting was found on LinkedIn which led to Ford’s website. When mustang6g.com and Motor1 reported on the find, the job was still open. However, if you follow the link to Ford’s page, the listing says “This position is no longer open.” The posting is still available on Glassdoor, if you’re still curious.

The real newsworthy aspect of this mistake is that most reports indicated that the current Mustang was going to be around for a long while yet. We’ve just recently been introduced to the GT500, and we’ve been expecting a Mustang Hybrid and something of a mid-cycle refresh.

This job posting certainly tells a different story as one of the responsibilities of the job is “on-site launch lead for Wind/Road Noise and Air Leakage attributes when S650 launches in 2022 as a 2023 MY.”

We wish we were a fly on the wall at a Mustang meeting…
