People need to be more skeptical of advertising and potentially deceptive approaches to marketing.

By the logic the Blazer could be called the Camaro CUV and it would be closer to the truth. At least the Blazer was directly styled after the Camaro inside and out and it apparently doesn’t matter that it’s a completely different vehicle. Ford barely even tried in comparison. Headlights, taillights, a couple of body lines and voila it’s a Mustang. It will be interesting to see if they can keep marketing the top halo Mustangs on exclusivity while simultaneously diluting the brand by slapping the badge on whatever vehicle type is in vogue at the moment.

If the enthusiasts let Ford get away with this they’ll eventually find the current Mustang GT replaced with a Mach-something that is closer to a next gen Focus ST while the cars they actually think of as Mustangs will be limited to the unaffordable halo editions.
