This past July Ford sold 9,565 Mustangs, up 12 percent from the 8,482 Mustangs sold in July of 2015. No doubt, sales of the company’s iconic pony car continue to remain strong, likely in part due to the newest generation’s versatile range of offerings, including a more economical V6 powered model, an all-American V8, as well as the 2.3 L 4-cylinder powered EcoBoost option.
