Ford has all there "C" platform cars on the same platform. Focus, Escape, C-Max, and a few other models on the horizon. As far as I am aware this is not a RWD bias platform.

The mustang as it has been for the past 20 years has been on a stand alone platform.

Though this is wishful thinking that we would be able to simply transfer components but I don't think it will be that easy.

I'd still be surprise if they even release such a vehicle when Ford is closing plants left and right in Europe. This is approximately 6300 jobs lost.
