Ford Lays Off 900 Due To Ugly 2010 Mustang Rear End
Ford announced today that they will lay off 900 workers from the Mustang plant and send them to other locations. This was an effect of drastically lower Mustang sales in 2009, probably due to the redesigned rear end.
After perfecting the rear tri-bar lights for the 2005 model, Ford decided to get creative with the 2010 slight redesign, and go space-age. The front end is meaner, there are pronounced muscular “hips” over the rear wheel wells, but the back end… failed.
Some say it was due to the economy and the new Camaro, but the Camaro hasn’t outsold the Mustang since 1985, and c’mon, the new Camaro has a far worse back-end!
