At least the new Bronco is anything BUT an insult! Ford went to even greater pains to recreate the authenticity of the Bronco than I thought they would. The 2-door edition, with a manual transmission, it's a sweet ride!Exactly! This is NOT a Mustang - Ford erred in not calling it the Edison or some other Tesla-killer name. This is an insult to an American icon!!!
Just beat me to it. Mustang is now a "brand" all it's own. Slap the current Mustang headlights and taillights on anything and call it a Mustang.Ford announced that Mustang is now the name of a line of vehicles and not just the car.
This is probably a nice vehicle, but if you tell someone you have a Mustang and they see this you will only see looks of disappointment. I wouldn’t buy it for that reason alone. Imagine dropping a bunch of cash on this crossover only to hear it’s not a real Mustang all the time.
Yes, but at least the Porsche team named their experiment with a new name. They did not call it a 911 - that would have been a disaster for the real 911. This may be a good vehicle (I don't mind Ford) but it's NOT a Mustang. That name belongs to an iconic car - a pony car. This is a Tesla with Ford branding, call it something else, don't drag down the Mustang name with a 4-door SUV that doesn't make noise.Porsche Cayenne owners probably heard that too but that car saved the company.
But maybe they should have called it the Ford Fusion and built that name.
Give it time; it hasn't been that long.While we're here, it seems to me that vehicle manufacturers still haven't figured out what to do at the front of an electric car in place of a radiator grille. That big oval piece of plastic with the mustang symbol is defintely not the answer though.
