This 2024 Ford Mustang will likely be the last Ford pony car. Rear-wheel drive, a 5.0-liter V8 engine, a six-speed manual transmission, and the iconic attitude of the Mustang are all still available. The 2024 Ford Mustang is equipped with cutting-edge technologies and features that are specifically targeted at enthusiasts. It is the first new Mustang in nine years, and it was unveiled today at the 2022 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
Identical to its predecessors constructed between 1964 and 1970, the style is quite similar, and the 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder and 5.0-liter naturally-aspirated Coyote V8 engines continue to be offered. Ford was rumored to be working on hybrid drivetrains and all-wheel drive gearbox alternatives.
The 5.0-liter engine and the entry-level turbocharged 2.3-liter engine are still available as part of what, at first glance, seems to be the same powertrain lineup. Nevertheless, there's more going on underneath the hood than meets the eye, despite Ford's refusal to disclose the power, torque, or fuel efficiency of either engine. Ford claims that the 2.3-liter EcoBoost is "all-new," while the 5.0-liter is the latest iteration of the well-known Coyote V8, which now features twin airboxes and dual throttle bodies.
In order to avoid losing 10 horsepower to pollution restrictions for the 2022 model year, the new GT must perform better than the 460 horsepower and 569 Nm offered by the outgoing model. Additionally, we'd like to see the EcBoost's 310 horsepower and 476 Nm increase.
Solely 10% of consumers raised their hands for the EcoBoost/six-speed combination in the latter years of the sixth-generation Mustang, thus the four-cylinder Mustang is currently available only with an automatic transmission. But even though the 10-speed is already the norm there, the Mustang with a V8 engine will still come standard with a manual transmission. And as was previously mentioned, only the back axle receives power from either of those gears.
There are updated powertrains as well as new technology geared toward enthusiasts. Remote engine revving, which enables users to start their cars and rev the engines using a key fob, is probably one of the most entertaining. There is barely any more practicality with the new electronic drift brake.
MagneRide adaptive dampers, Recaro seats, and active exhaust systems are additional options available for Performance Pack vehicles.
The 2024 automobile, code-named S650, has a new style with Tri-Bar LED headlamps and bigger rear arches to give it a more muscular look. The car is still readily recognizable as a Mustang.
Ford will offer the usual wide range of exterior paint options for the Mustang, 12 alternative wheel designs, and various caliper colors for the Brembo brakes included in the Performance Pack.
The leather and plastic in the cabin have finer texturing and finishes, and there is a bigger emphasis on material quality overall. A welcome dose of elegance is added by the availability of accent stitching, colored seat belts, and belts with asymmetrical stripes.
The new vehicle has an optional 13.2-inch SYNC 4 touchscreen with Amazon Alexa that can be added to the high-resolution adjustable 12.4-inch digital instrument pack to increase the display.
A flat-bottom steering wheel, an available wireless phone charging pad, and a complete complement of safety features including adaptive cruise control, traffic sign recognition, and reverse brake assist are further contemporary features.
In the summer of 2023, the 2024 Ford Mustang will be available for purchase. The costs will be revealed later.
