Sixth-gen Ford Mustang order books officially closed in Australia

“Due to overwhelming interest in the current Mustang, our order bank is now at capacity”


  • Dealers stopped taking sixth-gen Mustang orders
  • Production allocated to Australia exhausted
  • Speak to a dealer about the seventh-gen in late 2023

Ford Australia has ceased taking orders for the sixth-generation Mustang in Australia with the iconic sports car’s order books at capacity.

Those looking to get into a Mustang are encouraged to speak to their dealer about the forthcoming seventh-gen Pony car set to arrive in late 2023.

“Due to overwhelming interest in the current Mustang, our order bank is now at capacity,” reads the statement issued on Ford’s Australian website.

“Therefore, we regret to inform customers that we are no longer taking any new orders for the current Mustang. Speak to your dealer about the all-new Mustang, due in Australia from late 2023.”

This isn’t the first time Mustang orders have been put on ice in Australia. Back in July, orders were paused with a look to reopen them once supply has improved, but now the ‘S550’ ’Stang is off sale for good.

“There is no further allocation for Australia of the current Mustang”, a Ford Australia spokesperson told Wheels.

“We’ve got projected volume coming and we’ve allocated those cars to customers. So now if a customer goes into a Ford dealer to order a Mustang, it will be the next-gen model.”

Those keen to order an upcoming Mustang will have to do so somewhat blindly, as Ford Australia has not indicated final pricing or specification for the 2023 model.

The seventh-gen Mustang is coming

Ford hasn’t confirmed pricing or specifications for the coming seventh-gen ‘S650’ ’Stang, but we do know the 5.0-litre ‘Coyote’ V8 will make its way into the new car with the option of a manual transmission.

The 2.3-litre Ecoboost turbo-petrol four-cylinder will also remain, but it seems only when hooked up to a 10-speed automatic with revised programming.

Ford has turned its attention to handling as well, tweaking suspension, geometry and increasing rigidity in the body shell of the new Mustang.

The range will be headlined by a new Dark Horse variant with more grunt – more than 373kW apparently – thanks to twin throttle bodies and extra cooling. There’s also a tremec six-speed manual gearbox, unique exterior styling and Pirelli P Zero Trofeo tyres.
