The next Ford Mustang design will likely have some global input from Europe, Australia and other regions. Previously, Ford’s U.S. studio in Dearborn, Michigan, had complete responsibility over the Mustang design.

“It is a common process we [now] use on every vehicle,” Derrick Kuzak, Ford’s group vice president for global product development, said today at the Geneva auto show.

“When we embark on a new product, particularly one that is all new, it involves all of the studios. Then J Mays and the design team pick the best of those themes,” Kuzak told Automotive News. Mays is Ford’s global design chief.

Although there is no design timeline announced just yet for the newly designed model to go into production but it will likely be 2014 or 2015.

The design may be a global process, but our dear folks in Michigan will be responsible for turning the new design into an actual production vehicle.

“The Ranger was done by the Australian studio with input from the European studio,” Kuzak said during an interview at the show. The new Ranger that was introduced last year was the first vehicle designed by the Australian studio. It will be sold outside of North America later on this year.

Kuzak said the Mustang “is not just an icon in North America, it is an icon globally.”

They conducted Mustang clinics overseas in Asia and Europe asking what celebrity best represents the Mustang. Steve McQueen, known for his crazy chase scenes through the hills of San Francisco was picked as number one. We could have told you that!
