Although the American carmaker didn’t give any official confirmation for the delay, rumors predicted that the new Ford Mustang may be upgraded to a new modular platform which will be also used in a Ford all-electric crossover and the all-new Explorer which are planned to come in 2020.

With this new platform, Ford may bring an all-wheel-drive variant of the favorite Pony Car, along with the already-reported hybrid powertrain option.

Additionally, the Ford Mustang team also revealed that the new modular platform will not “bastardize the Mustang” and “will not hurt their design creativity.”
