We have some potentially bad news for people waiting on their 2021 Ford Mustang orders. Orders of the 2021 Ford Mustang have been canceled. This means you might have to wait a bit longer, but on the bright side, you could get a 2022 model instead.

We know you want your 2021 Ford Mustang model already. But if you ordered the Mustang Mach 1 or GT500, then you might have to wait. To make matters worse, you may have to take it upon yourself to order a 2022 model instead. 

Representatives from Granger Ford in Granger, Iowa, shared that their store has been notified that some customers will have to go without their 2021 Mustang due to component shortages. Other shops have confirmed this information as well. 

Why are Mustang models being nixed? 

The team at Granger Ford shared that they received official word that some 2021 Ford Mustang models will be canceled due to commodity shortages. Ford will be rescheduling these orders for 2022. 

Whew, that could mean you may not have to restart the ordering process. They continued to explain that Ford is exploring options to protect retail customers, and hopefully, more information will be available soon. 

This is the first time that their team has experienced something like this. They understand the magnitude of frustration that buyers are facing. They’re going to lock in their discount and can help get 2022 orders placed immediately. 

That means that you may have to reorder. We apologize for the confusion. It seems like there isn’t a clear solution yet. Granger only faced cancelations of the Mach 1 and GT500 models, but other dealers canceled Shelby models as well. 

There is a lack of widespread knowledge about cancellations for dealerships, which doesn’t help customers understand what’s happening. Ford hasn’t mentioned which component in the 2021 Ford Mustang models is short. 

We can speculate that it may be related to the ongoing semi-conductor chip shortage. But that’s not exactly a secret. Also, the Ford Maverick and Bronco Sport have recently been placed on a week-long production shortage, so there are production delays across the board. 

What’s new for the 2022 Mustang?

Perhaps missing out on the 2021 Ford Mustang for a 2022 model won’t be such a bad thing, especially if pricing remains the same. The 2022 model has a broader selection of appearance packages to provide unique looks. 

The Ice White Edition that’s available on gas-powered models, and the Mustang MAch-E includes white badges, wheels, paint, and interior accents. The Stealth Edition adds 19-inch wheels, black elements in the interior and exterior, and clear taillight lenses. 

But the optional V8 engine is losing 10 hp and 10 lb-ft of torque. The Coyote engine will produce 450 hp in the Mustang GT and 470 in the Mach 1. More updates may emerge later as Ford works to improve the Mach-E. 

We will keep an eye out for more cancelation notices. We hope you get your dream ride soon without having to pay more.
