Ford Mustang, an iconic symbol of automotive freedom and excitement, marks its 60th anniversary by reinforcing its presence on a global scale. With a history rich in performance and cross-continental admiration, the Mustang continues to roar across streets worldwide, from Sydney to Madrid to Rio de Janeiro.

The Mustang's Worldwide Presence

The Mustang is now available in 85 markets on six continents, showcasing its universal appeal and adaptability. This year, the arrival of the all-new seventh-generation Mustang signifies a fresh chapter in this storied model’s history. Alongside it, the electric Mustang Mach-E caters to a modern audience, blending classic Mustang power with zero-emission technology.

The 2024 Ford Mustang Global Gallop

To commemorate this milestone, Ford has launched the Ford Mustang Global Gallop. This unique initiative places the 2024 Mustang and Mustang Mach-E in the hands of 60 journalists, content creators, and Mustang ambassadors from various corners of the globe. The task is simple yet thrilling: embark on an epic drive in a Mustang, exploring new terrains and experiences.
