Flat Rock Produces The First 2015 Mustang

2015 Ford Mustang Begins Production at Flat Rock Assembly Plant

Flat Rock Produces The First 2015 Mustang.

Last Thursday August 28th 2014 was a big day in the history of the Ford Mustang, especially for the hardworking dedicated UAW local workers at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant in Michigan as production of the all-new 2015 Ford Mustang officially commenced. The all new sixth-generation Mustang as everyone probably already knows is a global release in over 120 countries. Something new for the workers to get used to on the assembly line with this new Mustang production will be the assembly of the right hand drive vehicles. Production is starting to ramp up and sales will kick off at dealer worldwide in the upcoming months.
“Mustang is and will continue to be an automotive icon,” Joe Hinrichs, Ford’s president of the Americas, said in a statement. “Expanding its availability globally affords our customers around the world the opportunity to have a true firsthand Mustang experience – one unlike any other.” “What an honor it is for the hardworking and dedicated UAW Local 3000 workers of Flat Rock Assembly Plant to build the next-generation Mustang,” Jimmy Settles, a UAW vice president, said. “I don’t think there is any place in the world where this vehicle is not known. To build it right here in Michigan is something to be proud of.”
Ford’s Flat Rock assembly facility has built the Mustang since the fifth-generation car debuted in 2005. For the 2015 model, the facility was subject to a massive $555-million investment that saw it add a new flexible body shop among other enhancements. Alongside the Mustang, Ford also builds its Fusion sedan at Flat Rock. Continue reading

Creators Of The 2015 Mustang Tell Their Story

Creators Of The 2015 Mustang Tell Their Story

We think that this is probably the best of the 2015 Mustang development videos produced so far, straight from the designers, engineers and creators of the S550 Mustang.

The new 2015 Ford Mustang is now in production at the Flat Rock assembly plant in Michigan and many of us have been lucky enough to see one of the concept prototypes that have been touring the country over the last few months, which will unfortunately (so we hear) be crushed soon once actual 2015 production Ford Mustangs come off the production line. Watch this video and see the designers and engineers bring the new S550 to life before your eyes. Meet Doyle Letson (Chief Interior Designer), Tom Barnes (Vehicle Engineer Manager), Susan Lampinen (Chief Designer, Colors and Materials), Kemal Curic (Mustang Lead Designer), Dave Pericak (Mustang Chief Engineer) and others whose hard work and passion went into the development and design of the all new 2015 Ford Mustang – A Job well done in our opinion – this is going to be the best Mustang yet.
