Ford Mustang Top Dog in October Sales

By November 6, 2012

Follow me on:

2013 Ford Mustang

It looks as though Ford reported a gain in Mustang sales this past October. Last month the company sold 5,328 Mustangs. A year ago, in October of 2011, the company sold 4,898. That's a year-over-year increase of 8.8 percent. Go Mustang. In all, Ford has sold approximately 72,149 Mustangs this year, a 17.3 percent increase over last year's sales.

As for the Camaro, the company reports it sold 5,122 Camaros in October. And the Challenger, well Dodge sold 2,686 of the cars this October. No doubt, it's good to see Mustang back on top in the pony car sales game!

Ford should remerge the Mustang with the Falcon and make them global vehicles.

Here is a copy about how Ford could possibly re-merge the Falcon and Mustang again,save a lot of money,and make other vehicles off the same platforms including resurrecting other vehicles:

2 In 1 Ford-Rear Drive Version

Ford needs a global rear drive platform for full size rear drive vehicles and actually seems to already have one which would also be great for the Lincoln division too.Would eliminate developement costs.Would be great for the Australian built Falcon and Territory and update safety standards etc.

The Transit Van is to my understanding built on a a stretched Transit Connect(front drive) platform that was combined with the F-150 drivetrain (rear drive) to make a new full size van on a rear drive with optional 4WD car based platform.Combining a front drive platform with a rear drive drivetrain is what I describe as 2 drivetrains on 1 platform(because of Allan Mulally’s One Ford plan of 1 platform)= 2 IN ONE FORD.
That means that the platform is size adjustable which would allow Ford to make compact (Mustang,possibly resurrected T Bird,F-100 as unibody base model version of the F-150 Pickup truck etc)to full size rear drive vehicles. Because Ford is also putting an optional diesel engine in the Transit Van,that would probably also help increase sales along with a new platform and 4wd option while still using the 2.0 litre I4 as fuel miser base engine in Falcon,new ecoboost v6, and 5.0 litre v8 engine options.The ecoboost v6 version of those vehicles get 6600 lb towing capacity.
