The Stampede, a celebration of the global debut of the all-new seventh-generation Mustang

At the 2022 Woodward Dream Cruise, Ford announced that next Wednesday, September 14, at 8 p.m. EDT at the Detroit Auto show, Ford will welcome vehicle enthusiasts, the media, and its employees to The Stampede– A celebration of the global debut of the all-new seventh-generation Mustang. After more than 58 years of Mustang heritage, Ford wants to mark this next chapter by inviting Mustang owners to participate in The Stampede countdown at Hart Plaza for an evening of surprises and theatrics as part of the Detroit Auto Show activities. 

Commemorating the 7th generation of the Mustang feels right in the Motor City, the historic heart of the American automotive industry, where Henry Ford pioneered the assembly line for vehicles. Taking the nostalgia one step further, the event will take place at the starting point of Woodward Avenue, America’s first paved road. 

“Mustang is the world’s best-selling sports car because there’s one for everyone – from an EcoBoost convertible to a 5-liter V8 GT fastback coupe. Now it’s time for a new stampede of owners, fans, and employees to welcome the next chapter in Mustang’s legacy – the seventh generation, which will be our best yet,” stated Jim Farley.

Drive Home to The Stampede With the Pony Express

Each year, America’s Automotive Trust organizes a cross-country tour for vintage vehicles traveling to Detroit for the North American International Auto Show. This year they collaborated with Ford, taking six generations of Mustangs on a cross-country adventure called The Drive Home to celebrate the announcement of the 7th generation. Ford invites all Mustang owners and enthusiasts to join on The Drive Home to The Stampede on September 14. The nine-day drive started on the 6th of this month, kicking things off at the American Car Museum in Tacoma, WA. The entire Drive Home to The Stampede route will cross nine states and over a dozen stops. Check out the map and be a part of the Mustang legacy. Rumor has it there will be a camouflaged seventh-generation Mustang hidden along the journey. 

Due to the overwhelming response from Mustang owners, registration for The Stampede is now full. However, individuals who missed the chance to register can still get a behind-the-scenes look at the show from their TVS, computers, and smartphones as The Stampede will be broadcast live on Ford’s YouTube and the Ford Mustang Facebook page.
