Re: New 2023 Lincoln Crossover
The next Mustang is all-new, this is the one and only chance for it to move to CD6, it won't come later because they don't want CD6 for Mustang.
I'm told the main reasons the CD6 Mustang was cancelled was because it was too costly to adapt and didn't achieve meaningful improvements to the existing platform both in cost and performance. Turns out they can do the same or better for less money with a revised version of the current platform. They really are doing what's best for their product, believe it or not.
Ford may very well consider the Mustang and CD6 platforms to be the same in terms of systems since they will share many things (Suspension, drivetrains, modules, etc.). Mustang has long resisted the move to shared platforms because it's expensive and often jeopardizes the Mustang team's ability to develop the platform characteristics they need to make the best Mustang possible.
