Ford is looking for a new engineer. Weheey! Sound the trumpets because yes, Ford is looking to employ someone. Yep, not exactly news, but what was in the job description was a bit more interesting. It explains that the new Mustang will be launching in 2022 for the 2023MY, and this got us hot under the collar.
Thanks to the Mustang6G forums, who found the news on LinkedIn, we know that Ford is looking for a “wind/road noise and air leakage plant vehicle team (PVT) engineer” for its plant in Flat Rock, Michigan. They will be asked to carry out the “final sign off on the Ford 2023 Mustang S650 vehicle program before it goes to the customers.” You can find the application here.
According to Automotive News, the Mustang was supposed to have a refresh later this year, but Ford CEO Jim Hackett was reported to have pushed this back. Now, we can see that it’s expected far later than expected in 2022. With the GT500 making its reveal, it’s no wonder that Ford is squeezing all it can out of the muscled sports car. An electric/hybrid version could also be on its way, although it’s likely that the Mach-E was the answer to that rumour.
With 72,489 units of Mustang sold last year, Ford beat the Challenger and Camaro competition, making it Amerca’s best-selling sports car for the fifth year running.
