Ford Mustang sedan: Falcon XR8 successor rendered


“We’re going to keep investing, keep our ICE products really exciting”

  • Mustang sedan render based on official sketches
  • Ford says ICE not dead yet
  • Could a four-door Mustang succeed?

The 2023 Ford Mustang was unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit last week. Following the coupe’s debut, Ford showed some official ‘Stang sedan and SUV sketches.

You can check out the SUV render here, but pictured is digital artist Theottle’s impression of a four-door Mustang.

It’s unlikely Ford will ever build a Mustang sedan, but were it to become a reality we’d finally have a replacement for the Falcon XR8 that tragically bit the dust in 2016.

Ford of America CEO Jim Farley confirmed that Mustang will live on beyond the seventh-generation, even with the onslaught of electrification. So a Mustang sedan isn’t entirely out of the question.

“We’re going to keep investing, keep our ICE products really exciting, but make them more opinionated. We want to be opinionated about our products,” said Farley.

Is a Mustang sedan viable?

A practical but performance-oriented four-door Mustang packing the coupe’s 5.0-litre Coyote V8 – perhaps even a manual transmission – sounds pretty appealing to us.

Of course, a sporty Mustang SUV to rival the Porsche Cayenne and BMW X5 M at an affordable price has more sales potential in this day and age, though even that sounds like a pipe dream.

This hasn’t stopped traditional fast-sedan manufacturers yet. BMW’s twin-turbo V8 M5 CS was built in very limited numbers, but they sold almost immediately. There’s also a new Mercedes-AMG C63 on the horizon, though that’s a plug-in hybrid.

The sixth-gen Mustang sells strongly in Australia, though. Ford sold 2827 two-door Mustangs in 2021, almost identical to the number of C-Class sedans/wagons Mercedes-Benz sold in the same time (2832).

A four-door Mustang could also take a leaf out of the Kia Stinger’s book and use a practical liftback rather than more traditional booted rear end.

Is a whole family of V8-powered, Mustang-badged vehicles on the way?

There is the possibility that, were a Mustang sedan to exist, it would employ a V8. But with emission mandates closing in it’s more likely a hybrid or even the Mustang Mach-E’s electric powertrain would power a four-door ’Stang. But never say never.

Would you consider a practical eight-cylinder Mustang sedan? Let us know in the comments below.
