Ford Tells Us To 'Join the Stampede' Ahead Of Mustang Reveal

Ford has provided more details on the unveiling of the new, seventh-generation Mustang. We already knew that the muscle car would debut at the Detroit Auto Show on September 14, but there's much more to this event than just the date.

The automaker calls this upcoming event 'The Stampede,' and it will start at 8pm EDT. Ford took full advantage of the Debut Auto Show's new indoor and outdoor setup, as the next Mustang will be making its debut at the very beginning of Woodward Avenue. For those who aren't able to make their way to America's first paved road, the event will be live-streamed on the Blue Oval's YouTube channel and Facebook page.

“When we conceived the idea of an indoor-outdoor Detroit Auto Show, The Stampede was the kind of event we hoped and believed was possible. We are proud to support Ford with what will be an absolutely iconic milestone, celebrating the heritage and future of the Mustang, as well as the global mobility industry, right here in Detroit,” said Detroit Auto Show executive director Rod Alberts.

Mustang owners will also be able to attend The Drive Home, which is a cross-country road trip including all six current Mustang generations. This is the result of a collaboration between Ford and the American Automotive Trust, as well as the Detroit Auto Show. The Drive Home will begin on September 6 at America's Car Museum in tacoma, Washington. The convoy of Mustangs will then cross nine states, with twelve stops in between, until they reach Ford's global headquarters on September 14 before the big reveal.

“Mustang is the world’s best-selling sports car because there’s one for everyone – from an EcoBoost convertible to 5-liter V8 GT fastback coupe. Now it’s time for a new stampede of owners, fans and employees to welcome the next chapter in Mustang’s legacy – the seventh-generation, which will be our best yet," commented Ford boss Jim Farley.
