Ford will unveil the next Mustang to the world almost simultaneously next week through live broadcast in six cities across the globe. The global debut of the Mustang will be shown on "Good Morning America" on Dec. 5, 7 a.m. Eastern Time. The debut will be seen online at GoFurtherLive.com. That would be 7 a.m. in Dearborn, Michigan; 4 a.m. in Los Angeles, California; 11 p.m. in Sydney, Australia; 8 p.m.in Shanghai; 1 p.m. in Barcelona, Spain.
These details of the Mustang debut were announced during the Tuesday edition of "Good Morning America," according to the Web site Mustang6G.com. Ford has already employed synchronized, multi-city events to launch several vehicles in the past years. The launch of the new Mustang celebrates the 50th year that the original Mustang was first rolled out in 1964.
It was Ford's first international press introduction. That year, Lee Iacocca and Henry Ford II showcased the first Mustang on the opening weekend of the New York World's Fair, simultaneous with unveils in 11 European capitals. Ford remarked that executives, dealers and "local influencers" will be involved in each of the city launches.
Ford spokesman Alan Hall said the reveals would happen "nearly simultaneously" -- leaving some working space for the logistics of coordinating across five time zones. Invitations to the Los Angeles reveal showed that the event will be held at the TCL Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard at 10 a.m. local time.
