Ford CEO hints at a 4-door Mustang; says no to a Mustang SUV

Ford is willing to explore less conventional ideas.

Speaking to a media outlet, Jim Farley, CEO of Ford, recently spoke about the future plans for the Mustang.

Farley explained that while the company is open to introducing potential new variants of the Mustang, it "will never build a Mustang that isn’t a Mustang". Having said that, the CEO did hint at a possible 4-door iteration of the sports coupe sometime in the future. This new 4-door Mustang could even be offered with a V8 engine paired with a manual gearbox.

Farley mentioned how he is open to different body forms of the Mustang but will never stick a small two-row SUV with the Mustang badge. "For instance, there will never be room for a small, two-row Ford SUV with a Mustang badge stuck on it. But could we do other Mustang body forms—a four-door or whatever? I believe we could, as long as these models have all the performance and attitude of the original," Farley said.

Neglecting the Mustang Mach-E, the Ford CEO further went on to mention, "One thing I can promise, however, is that we will never make an all-electric Mustang."

Farley added that the Mustang is the best-selling sports coupe in the world. Hence, Ford is willing to explore less conventional ideas. He stated, "At our best, we are an irreverent company. We need to keep doing derivatives that will surprise people."
