Ford stock surged this morning after it announced 23 Mustang at Detroit Show. F stock price is $14.83.
After more than three years of absence, the Detroit Auto Show has returned to the city, giving automakers another opportunity to show off their newest creations. In the wake of the excitement around its new car lineup, Ford (NYSE:F) has been all but ignored. The outdoor Ford event, aptly dubbed The Stampede, kicked off the Detroit Auto Show 2022, which ran from September 17-25.
An S650 Mustang Mach-E, the seventh version of the iconic pony car, was unveiled as the events main attraction. After much anticipation, it was finally released to the public on September 14th. Anyone interested in automobiles or athletics would have enjoyed this spectacle.
The classic muscle car has been updated, yet it still has the signature low roofline of previous Mustangs. Both the interior and exterior have been redesigned. The car will offer an Ecoboost system and a 5.0-liter V8 engine. Four distinct models will be available: the base Mustang, the GT, the convertible GT, and the Dark Horse Trim.
The new model is sleeker and more modern in appearance, and it has better lighting all around. But it still has the same lattice pattern, the Pony logo, and a tall, sloping hood. A dual air intake box and dual throttle body are only two examples of the engine upgrades Ford has introduced.
Ford Stock also gained after announcing Investment in EV
Ford (NYSE:F) has promised to invest $50 million in new electric vehicles (EVs) over the next few years, so the fact that the Mustang still uses a gas engine came as a surprise. Ford may be continuing with conventional energy-powered vehicles to focus on boosting sales throughout its regular company in addition to EV investments.
Notable debuts apart from the Mustang included the F-150 Raptor R, a new range of Bronco vehicles, and the Maverick pickup truck.
Meanwhile, Ford (NYSE:F) has approached over 3,000 dealers to invest in modifications to sell all-electric vehicles as part of an effort to bolster its electrification operations. Investments of $500,000 or $1.2 million are required to get EV certification.
Manufacturing efficiencies are eating away at production schedules when the car sector is bearing the weight of a protracted semiconductor crisis and the current geopolitical uncertainty from the Ukraine conflict; a show of this size could help give the industry a shot in the arm.
Fords stock price rose 14.8% last year, above the industrys 5.2% growth.
