    A mysterious Ford Mustang GT mule has been noticed near the company’s Dearborn improvement services, sparking a fresh spherical of speculation as to what the Blue Oval has in retailer for its pony car. For those who thought we’d get out of 2020 with out yet another automotive mystery, well, guess once more.

    If the first thing that springs to thoughts from viewing these pictures is "Mach 1, half deux," you’re not alone. After we first saw that variant on the street a 12 months ago, it seemed loads like the prototype in these images. Upon closer inspection, nevertheless, we can see that there are some key differences that deepen the thriller surrounding this mule.

    For starters, the Mach 1 was clearly based mostly on a efficiency-spec Mustang GT. Whereas Bronco Sport Badlands is a minimum of based mostly on a V8 model, the sq. wheel and tire setup together with all-season tires point to a fairly basic spec. The lug-mounted sensors seen in among the pictures counsel that Ford is testing either powertrain or brake tweaks.

    Rumors of an all-wheel drive Mustang have been swirling for years. As we’ve identified earlier than, seeing an all-wheel-drive variant of the current-era Mustang (pictured) is extraordinarily unlikely. If it receives the green gentle, the layout would virtually definitely be offered on the subsequent-generation mannequin, which is due out for the 2023 model 12 months.

    There are multiple other possibilities on the powertrain front, after all. Anything from the lengthy-rumored hybrid (rumors of which trailed off after the Mustang Mach-E introduction) to the introduction of engines utilized in Ford’s different rear-wheel-drive fashions might be on the desk. Then again, it might be something so simple as a braking system improve, which might clarify each an altered fascia and the corner-mounted sensors simply as well as any powertrain modification may.

    At this point, we nonetheless expect 2022 to be the last 12 months for the present-gen Mustang, so this could possibly be a mule for just about anything. We’d prefer to see some full-blown prototypes of its eventual successor, however we’ll need to settle for the sort of factor for now, it appears.
