2014 Ford Mustang design will be more ‘modern’ rather than retro

Ford Mustang Giugiaro Concept

In a short report earlier this week, we learned that the Ford Mustang will be undergoing a full revamp and redesign for the 2014 model year. We now have more details courtesy of Ford design chief, Jay Mays.

Mays says that the styling for the next-generation is ‘being locked down.’ When asked if we will see an evolution of today’s retro look – Mays said ‘No way.’ Talking about the Mustang redesigns introduced in 2005 and 2010 Mays said that “Both of those cars everybody would say, ‘they are retro vehicles.'”

The 2014 Mustang will be tied into the model’s 50th anniversary.

“The challenge or the opportunity for 2014 with a 50th anniversary car is to not just look back over your shoulder, but to try to win all of the Mustang faithful yet bring the brand forward as well,” he told Automotive News. “It has to look like a Mustang. But you go down a list of things that might or might not be necessary to make the car look like a Mustang.”
