Real Automotive recently showcased an AI-generated rendering of a Mustang-styled ute from the Ford Motor Company, sparking both curiosity and skepticism. However, discerning viewers quickly spotted telltale signs of AI involvement, including nonsensical details on the vehicle’s exterior. With exaggerated features like six exhaust finishers and impractically small rear passenger doors, the concept seems far-fetched.

While some may recall the Mustang’s historical connection to the Ranchero, a utility variant sharing the Falcon’s platform, Ford’s commitment to preserving the Mustang brand integrity remains steadfast. In the past, powerful Mustang variants outperformed the Ranchero, boasting engines like the 429-cube Boss Nine and the 428-cube Cobra Jet.

Looking ahead, Ford once considered a Bronco-inspired pickup, as evidenced by design sketches and promotional materials. However, this project was ultimately shelved in favor of focusing on the successful Ranger lineup, particularly the rugged Raptor variant.

Today’s market demands versatile vehicles like the Ford Maverick, which dominates the unibody truck segment alongside competitors like the Hyundai Santa Cruz and Honda Ridgeline. With plans for a 2025 refresh, including a rumored performance-oriented version, Ford remains committed to meeting evolving consumer needs.
