Mustang fans will get their first glimpse of the next-generation model on Sept. 14. And to celebrate the first six generations of Mustang, Ford is hosting the Best Stang Decade contest as part of the reveal to celebrate every decade of the car’s existence.  


Those attending The Stampede – the reveal of the all-new seventh-generation Mustang – on Sept. 14 are encouraged to wear attire inspired by their favorite period in Mustang history, from the 1960s through today.  


A panel of Hour Detroit magazine editors and experts in fashion, arts and entertainment will judge the attire and select 12 finalists (two from each decade), with the top three costumes earning the following prizes: 

  • First place: A two-year lease of an all-new Mustang GT 
  • Second place: An early drive of the all-new Mustang  
  • Third place: A hot lap in a new Mustang with a Ford Performance driver 


Mustang owners can register to participate in The Stampede, which includes a parade of Mustangs driving from Ford World Headquarters to the debut event at Detroit’s Hart Plaza. 


Ford will broadcast The Stampede live on its social channels, sharing the debut event’s excitement, plus highlighting owners roaring their engines, flexing their head-turning customization and sharing their passion for the world’s all-time best-selling sports car. The main event begins at 8 p.m. EDT. 

Best Stang Decade entrants will need to be photographed at one of the photo booths at The Stampede between 6:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. EDT on Sept. 14.  


Winners will be announced no later than Sept. 19, 2022. Terms and conditions apply.
