Is Ford hinting at the future of Mustang here?

Ford embedded an intelligent teaser for what appears to be the future of the American muscle car Mustang, within a promotional video released recently.

The automaker released a video about how ‘talk doesn’t get things done, building does’, like how the American automaker has doing for the past 115 years.

It segued into shots giving a shadowy teaser which is reminiscent of the current sixth-generation Mustang’s design, but the creases appear smoother and the look of the car is less jagged. The grille opening is filled with a plastic piece similar to what is seen on many electric cars.

A shot of the engine bay, which very clearly is a V8, as it has four pistons on each side of the engine, is lit up like in neon blue, Ford’s signature color in its promotions for electrification recently.

The futuristic Mustang is believed to be named Mach 1 as it was supposed to be resurrected for the upcoming performance-oriented Mustang-inspired all-electric SUV. That idea was killed after the public reacted poorly to the idea.

In the video an original Mach 1 is seen at the 0:34 seconds, just before a current Mustang is shown at 0:35 seconds. This leads to the speculations of the Mustang hybrid being named as Mach 1.

“It’s a glimpse of the future. We are excited to show you more at the right time.”, a spokesperson stated in its comments to Motor Authority.
