A new report says Ford will launch the next-generation Mustang in 2023 and a hybrid version in 2025.

"The next-generation Ford Mustang could be set to launch in the US in 2023 – and a hybrid version may arrive two years later, according to new reports.
Citing a recent, confidential multi-day Ford dealer meeting in Texas, industry publication Automotive News reports the next-generation Mustang (codenamed S650) is slated for launch for Model Year 2023 in the US, which would see it go on sale between mid-2022 and mid-2023.

A hybrid Mustang will reportedly follow in 2025 – the first electrified Mustang in the nameplate's history – and while Automotive News doesn't detail specifications (nor what engine will be used), earlier reports and patents suggest a large-displacement petrol V8 driving the rear wheels, and two electric motors powering the front axle, for 'e' all-wheel drive."

"It's also probably the Mustang Hybrid will be engineered for right-hand drive, given it will be required if Ford plans to continue selling the sports car in the UK, which falls under Ford of Europe's pledge to offer a plug-in hybrid or all-electric version of each of its passenger cars and SUVs by mid-2026.

Prior to the hybrid powertrain's arrival, it's likely the engine range will be topped by a revised version of the current Mustang's 5.0-litre naturally-aspirated V8, which develops 339kW and 556Nm in Australian-delivered Mustang GT variants, or 345kW/556Nm in the limited-run Mach 1. Six-speed manual and 10-speed automatic transmission options will likely to continue."

According to muscle cars and trucks who
Accurately predicted the demise of the camaro the s650 will not be AWD initially. It also will not be on a new platform but an evolution is its current base. Electrification is in the foreseeable future but not immediately. Perhaps the most promising news is that the Mustang will
Be a complete remodel from the ground up.
