The seventh version of Ford’s iconic Pony Car, the greatest sports coupe in the world, and possibly the most adored vehicle in America, the 2024 Ford Mustang, was presented.
This 2024 Ford Mustang, with the chassis designation S650, shares the same platform as the S550 Mustang, which made its debut in 2014. The greenhouse and hard points are therefore unchanged, but the S650 has undergone other changes that collectively give it a distinctive appearance and feel from its forerunner. Mustang chief engineer Ed Krenz tells Road&Track, “With the current generation car, we are beginning from a fairly solid point.” “The platform is very well suited to what we are trying to accomplish. Where we can, let us update everything a little bit, but do it carefully.”
2024 Ford Mustang Is Probably The Last Internal Combustion Mustang
The 2024 Ford Mustang has redesigned twin-scroll turbo with an electronically regulated wastegate and dual-fuel system which uses both ports and direct injections of the base 2.3-liter EcoBoost. The beloved Coyote engine from Ford’s fourth generation, the 5.0-liter V-8, now has a dual-throttle-body intake valve fed by slots on either side of the bigger front grille.
Ford has not yet released performance figures for either engine, but the EcoBoost will have more power than the previous model’s 330 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque, and the V-8 should have at least 480 horsepower. The available transmissions include Ford’s own 10-speed automatic, a basic six-speed manual from Getrag, and carryovers.
The Mustang comes equipped with a novel “Remote Rev” option for automatic vehicles, allowing the driver to start and rev the engine by simply pressing a button on the key fob. This could be the final internal-combustion Mustang due to the extended lifespan of the model—only the seventh version has been produced in almost sixty years—the fact that Ford and the rest of the globe are moving toward an electric future.
