Around the World with Ford: Celebrating the Mustang’s 60th Anniversary

The Ford Mustang, an icon of automotive freedom and performance, is marking its 60th anniversary. A staple on roads and racetracks worldwide, the Mustang has evolved from a symbol of American muscle to a global phenomenon. Today, the Mustang family includes the classic muscle car and the electric Mustang Mach-E, symbolizing the blend of tradition with innovation. 

Mustang's Worldwide Presence

Spanning six continents and 85 markets, the Mustang’s roar is as familiar on Sydney’s George Street and Madrid’s Gran Via as it is on the streets of Rio de Janeiro. This global footprint underscores its universal appeal and adaptability to various cultures and terrains. 

Celebrating with the 2024 Mustang and Mach-E

The 60th anniversary is highlighted by the introduction of the seventh-generation Mustang, which continues to embody the spirit of freedom and excitement. In a grand gesture, Ford has launched the Ford Mustang Global Gallop, handing over the latest 2024 Mustang and Mustang Mach-E models to 60 journalists, content creators, and Mustang ambassadors across the globe.

The Ford Mustang Global Gallop

Participants in the Global Gallop are encouraged to take these vehicles on epic road trips, exploring scenic routes and famous roadways. From retracing Route 66 in a Mustang Convertible in North America to tackling the challenging turns of Romania’s Transfăgărășan highway in a Mustang Dark Horse, these adventures are as varied as the drivers behind the wheel. 

Featured Participants and Upcoming Adventures

Among the notable participants are Andy To, Lauren Stoney, and Uma Leoni, with additional ambassadors joining as the year progresses. The first of these exciting journeys is set to begin in May, with Mustang enthusiasts encouraged to follow along or share their own experiences using hashtags #FordMustangGG and #Mustang60.
