The Ford Mustang is one of the most legendary and beloved sports cars in the world, with a history that spans over half a century. In 2024, Ford will launch the seventh generation of the Mustang, with a fresh design, improved performance, advanced technology, and new features that will appeal to enthusiasts and fans alike.

2024 Ford Mustang: Evolved and edgy design

The 2024 Mustang retains the classic proportions and cues of its predecessors but with a more chiselled and sculpted appearance. The front end features a large, aggressive grille opening, new bonnet vents, and a redesigned front splitter that optimises airflow and aerodynamics. The rear end has a shorter overhang, a new diffuser, and a quad-tip exhaust system.

The belt line has been dropped at the rear of the door, creating a sleeker and more muscular profile. The 2024 Mustang also offers a wide range of customisation options, including 11 colour choices, new stripe colours and designs, and different wheel sizes and styles.

2024 Ford Mustang: Powerful and fun performance

The 2024 Mustang delivers exhilarating performance with three engine options: a 2.3-litre EcoBoost, a 5.0-litre Coyote V8, and a new Dark Horse variant that is the most powerful naturally aspirated V8 Mustang ever. 

The EcoBoost engine produces 310 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque, while the Coyote V8 delivers 460 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque.

The Dark Horse, which is available as a coupe or a convertible, boasts 480 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque, and features a unique blacked-out exterior and interior. All engines are paired with either a six-speed manual transmission or a 10-speed automatic transmission and have a rear-wheel drive configuration.

The 2024 Mustang also introduces a new Remote Rev feature that allows the driver to rev the engine remotely using the key fob, and an available Electronic Drift Brake that enables easy and controlled drifting.

Technology: Smart and driver-centric

The 2024 Mustang has the most digital and driver-centric cockpit ever found in the Mustang lineup. It features a configurable dual display that consists of a 12-inch digital instrument cluster and a 13.2-inch centre screen that runs the SYNC 4A system. 

The dual display provides the driver with various information and settings, such as performance metrics, navigation, entertainment, and climate control.

The 2024 Mustang also comes with a host of safety and convenience features, such as Ford Co-Pilot360, wireless charging, Bang & Olufsen sound system, and ambient lighting.
