The American people have been poisoned with the thought of government hate, the idea that domestic workers have no passion or mentality such as workers from other countries.
Plain and simple, from the average guy or girl in a high school Japanese class watching anime and devoting their life to Japan, to the classic non-car-caring person who understands that anything from Germany or Italy is for sophisticated people who are above domestic products. America has become this mindless persons' who believe that the rest of the world is far ahead of us in technology and engineering. Other countries have many other takes on technology, which leads to an undetermined winner in the battle for 'most evolved technology'. However, it is the engineering outside of our country that does not hold up to ours; no, it has not always been that way. But, there is no reason to believe foreign cars are better, just because of social media. This is the kind of manipulation that causes companies like GM and Chrysler to fail, having been betrayed by their own people for junk Honda's and garbage Kia's. This is why there is a bad picture painted of the American automaker, because people fight over the quality of it's own people and the misuse of unions.
So how does this come back to the Mustang? Simple. Ford has no choice but to appeal to the rest of the world, since to the typical American who rejects modern engineering and chemistry, whatever other countries like they will follow. Thus, the Mustang is all over the place right now, because to most people "the good days of muscle are gone, and America is not as smart as Europeans or Asians".
Dead on.....now I feel a bit better.
Edit: Though I should point out that I am not saying foreign cars cannot be impressive or appealing; I'm stating that there is no reason that they should be considered better than our products at current time; hopefully, it will stay that way. I'm sure it will go around a few times, but not today.
