So claims Tickford, an Australian based Ford tuner, which has produced a dyno showing 543 HP peak, an 83 HP gain over a stock Mustang GT, all with just a software tune.

This would represent the highest gains we’ve seen from a GT tune alone and would be surprising without any supporting mods and no special gas requirement. Follow along inside to see if there’s more to these numbers than meets the eye.

Ford has just announced the launch of a new Customer Vehicle Order Tracking website to track the progress of your 2018+ Mustang retail order!

This new online order tracking application will allow customers to check on the status of their Ford retail orders through 5 primary stages — In Order Processing, In Production, Awaiting Shipment, In Transit and finally, Delivered.

A few caveats to this tool are that this tool is for retail orders only and customers will need their VIN to track their vehicle.  It also excludes the Ford GT and all Lincoln vehicles.

This is long time coming and a welcome replacement to the COTUS tracking system which should cut down on the amount of calls to the dealership and customer service.

Mustang6G.com is proud to have had our 3rd Annual Members Meetup along with our first ever #S550Cruise during Mustang Week. CJ Pony Parts participated/sponsored both events and Velgen Wheels also sponsored our Meetup Event.
We gave away many prizes and had a great turnout for both events so be sure to check out the event photos and also share your photos/videos if you were in attendance!

It’s no surprise that the 2019 Mustang Bullitt has been a big hit stateside but it may surprise you how many fans of the late Steve McQueen tribute car live outside the U.S.

Ford, recognizing this, wisely decided to sell it overseas, and we’re now seeing the first examples of the right-hand drive (RHD) 2019 Bullitt arrive at dealerships — and this one from Australia was just spotted by Mustang6G ember Michael (mookstube).

There are some minor differences between the RHD and LHD versions that can be seen, namely the clear tail lights on the exported version, and the lack of strut tower brace or center gauges. The export Bullitt also seems to get the 3.55 (instead of 3.73) ratio limited slip axle.

Check out the photos of this production RHD 2019 Mustang Bullitt in Australia.

Ford has just given us a first look preview of its upcoming Mustang-inspired performance electric utility vehicle.

The teaser shows a rendering of the rear end of the new battery-electric crossover wearing the unmistakable tri-bar Mustang taillights, muscular hips and narrow cut decklid panel.  The one distinctive difference is the SUV’s higher roofline.

As previously reported, Ford originally floated the “Mach 1” name but after strong negative feedback from the Mustang6G community, and other Mustang enthusiasts, the company has wisely decided to opt for another yet-undisclosed name.

Details are scarce on the vehicle but Ford has told disclosed that it will have a range of more than 300 miles and is due for production in 2020.

August 2018 Mustang Sales Up 35%

September 4th, 2018

Ford Motor Company posted strong Mustang sales figures for the month of August 2018, after the company announced it has built more than 10 million Mustangs over the last 54 years.

The company added 7,487 Mustangs to that number last month, representing a 35.3 percent gain over last August. That brings the year-to-date sales figure to 55,849 Mustangs, as summer draws to a close.

Check out the August 2018 Mustang sales figures inside.

A new report from Automotive News sheds light on Ford’s future plans for its pony car, noting that the seventh-generation S650 Mustang has been pushed back to 2021 (presumably to be introduced as a 2022 model year).

Regular readers of Mustang6G will know that this “delay” is actually an improvement from what insiders have previously hinted — that the S650 had been pushed back as far as 2023, or even canceled altogether — so this is good news indeed.

The report also notes that the next-generation Mustang will no longer ride on an exclusive RWD platform, but instead will be built on one of the company’s five new modular architectures, presumably to share the RWD/AWD unibody underpinnings of the Ford Explorer and Lincoln Aviator platform — a move which the company claims will not hurt their design creativity.

We have what appears to be a leaked document with plausible specs (despite some misspellings) of the 2020 Shelby GT500 Mustang’s power ratings and other specifications.

The document aligns with many of the agreed-upon speculation to date, and claims the next-gen GT500 will come with a 5.2-liter supercharged V8 producing 720 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. At the moment it is unclear whether a GT500R or GT500KR version will also be offered, possibly with different power ratings.

Other details revealed suggest the vehicle will have a 190 MPH maximum speed, 3.73 axle ratio and have a curb weight of 4,225 pounds.

Ford Designer Christopher Stevens takes a walk through Woodward with Stangmode as Christopher talks about Mustang design and is asked about the upcoming 2020 Shelby GT500.

Why should you pay attention to his answers? He happens to be the designer of the new GT500 (as well as the 2018 Mustang refresh and 2019 Bullitt Mustang), so check out the video to see what he has to say. There’s also a Mustang6G reference at the 12:30 mark.
