Iíd rather they show it a few months before itís availableógrowing tired of them showing a vehicle and then it not hitting the lots for a year+ in some cases.

A year is tolerable, unlike Tesla, with over 3 years.

Clearly only some products get the year long delay.

But you and I both know, people would then complain if they had to wait another year to hear anything.


Damned if they do, and you know the rest.

Re: 2019 Ford Mustang GT500

Ford typically like to show their all-new designs and nameplates really early. I suspect it's part of their long awareness building campaigns since they've always done it this way. EcoSport and Ranger are the latest examples of this, they announced the Ranger a year ago, so collectivley it will be over 2 years before it will actually be available for purchase. EcoSport debuted a year before sale and was even featured in a movie that premiered WAY before it was even available. It also helps Ford stem some customer churn if their competitors offer something they can't currently compete with but plan to soon. Alternatively, you don't want to give too much advance notice for MCEs or you choke existing sales.

Ford continues that tradition, by announcing vehicles earlier and earlier, Bronco was announced over 3 years before it's availability and of course we've already heard about their EV plans going into next decade. The 2nd Gen Raptor was revealed at the Autoshow a full 2.5 years before they actually went on sale (Jan 2015 - June 2017). The Model 3 was revealed too close to production by Ford standards, under 2 years from debut to sale. Only difference is that Ford usually meets its targets, but Ford and Tesla are generally the most guilty when it comes to ridiculous lead times. That's why a Ford watcher has far more sympathy (or should!) with Tesla wait times than the average person who expects cars to be available as soon as they are announced.

Re: 2019 Ford Mustang GT500

Yup, if you give them news too soon you are damned, and if you give them nothing until just before, they crave something and complain nothing is coming

They announced a performance BEV, and some complained nothing is in the works and others will complain why do we have to wait.
