Turns out that Ford has told us just when that first official look might come, too, although it has chosen somewhat of a backdoor fashion for dropping the news.
The video below popped up on the Ford Mustang YouTube channel this morning, promoting a social media effort called #MustangInspires on. The video and hashtag ask fans of the pony car to share pictures of the car – or "photographic stories of inspiration" – on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc. But the truly interesting part of the video description is that which mentions taking "the cover off the all-new Mustang" on December 5. Consider our calendars marked.
UPDATE: Ford has officially confirmed December 5, further adding that the reveal will be staged at 12:01am (Eastern, presumably) in six cities on four continents – those cities include Dearborn, New York City, Los Angeles, Barcelona, Shanghai and Sydney. Read more in the statement below.
After weeks (and months... maybe even years) of speculation about the 2015 Mustang, we finally have some information to share with you!
The all-new 2015 Mustang will be revealed at 12:01am on December 5, 2013. The debut of the Mustang will take place simultaneously in six cities on four continents: Dearborn, MI; New York, NY; Los Angeles, CA; Barcelona, Spain, Shanghai, China; and Sydney, Australia.
Leading up to the reveal of the Mustang, Ford has teamed up with Facebook and Instagram for a 15-day countdown to the launch of the new car. During this countdown, fans will be encouraged to share their Mustang stories on social media. There will also be a series of fifteen Instagram videos released leading up to the reveal, one per day. Please see the attached release for more information.
