Look Out World, the Ford Mustang is Coming Through!

Look Out World, the Ford Mustang is Coming Through!
BRIGHTON, Mich. - Look out world, the Ford Mustang is coming through! For the first time in its 50-year history, the iconic pony car will be making its way overseas for a whole new market of consumers to enjoy. Ford Motor Company will even be exporting models with right-hand-drive configurations to serve more than 25 markets around the world, including the United Kingdom, Australia, and South Africa. 

In order for the Ford Mustang to make its journey overseas, it first needs to go through some thorough preparation to ensure that the pony car is in compliance with the vehicle standards in the other countries. First, all Mustangs undergo specific engineering work at the plant, then receive the finishing touches at their port's homologation center. During this time the Mustang will also receive all of the necessary customs documentation and tracking so that Ford will be able to track its progress and time of delivery. Certain Ford vehicles are also given an underbody coating and documents in the exported country's language. 


With the export of the Ford Mustang comes a handful of new jobs for workers in the United States! Ford Motor Company was able to hire 3,000 employees at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant in Michigan. Ford was also able to add an additional 100 jobs at the Port of Portland to help with all of the exports that are heading to the Asia Pacific as we speak!
