2024 Ford Mustang Interestingly, in the 2024 generation Ford Mustang is still a mystery among Mustang users and diehard fans. The Ford Mustang was previously set to launch in the United States in 2023 – and a hybrid version may arrive two years later, according to the latest reports.
Future Ford Mustang Production The 2024 Ford Mustang onwards is expected to be built at Flat Rock Assembly, in Michigan, made possible with a $250 million renovation. An Automotive News report suggests that the S650 Ford Mustang will have a life cycle of up to eight years, with a refresh sometime in 2025.
Citing a recent secret multi-day Ford dealer meeting in Texas, industry publication Automotive News reports the next-generation Mustang (codenamed S650) is slated to launch for Model Year 2023 in the US, which will go on sale between mid-2022 and mid-2023.
A hybrid Mustang is rumored to be following in 2025 the first electric Mustang in the nameplate’s history and while Automotive News doesn’t detail the specifications (or what engine it will use), previous reports and patents suggest a large displacement petrol V8 driving behind the wheels and two motors. the electricity that drives the front axle, for ‘e’ all-wheel drive.
Contrary to reports in recent years, the new Mustang will not use Ford’s latest ‘CD6’ rear-wheel-drive platform used in the large Ford Explorer SUV in the US market instead, it will use a “re-engineered” version of the car’s current platform, with possible combustion-driven all-wheel drive, the publication reports.
2024 Ford Mustang Report
The new Ford Mustang is reportedly coming soon and will get a hybrid powertrain option. Automotive News reports the new Mustang, codenamed S650, will arrive for the 2023 model year. That suggests it will debut in 2022. But will the 2024 debut in 2023? And will come with some significant changes?
The news came from a meeting in Dallas, Texas between Ford executives and a large group of dealers, where executives shared Ford’s product plans. The hybrid model is reportedly slated for 2025, though it’s unclear if this will be a series of plug-in hybrids and what engines will be mated.
The S650 will reportedly have an eight-year life cycle, roughly the same as the previous two generations. The platform won’t change much compared to the current S550, which went into production in 2014.
The US outlet reports the Mustang could, however, get an all-wheel-drive option. It will be a first for the Mustang. Of the two arch-rivals in America, the Chevrolet Camaro, and Dodge Challenger, only the latter offers all-wheel drive and is based solely on V6.
Neither the Camaro nor the Challenger has a hybrid option, and the Camaro could end production in 2024. It could be indirectly replaced by an all-electric sports sedan. Ford’s embrace of hybrids is different from that of GM, which has moved away from the technology it sees as a temporary replacement.
Dodge has a plug-in hybrid coming in 2022, but it’s rumored to be a crossover. The main action for the brand’s electrification efforts is a teased electric muscle car, set for a 2024 launch. Automotive News reports that the Mustang isn’t the only Ford iconic signboard to adopt electrification.
The Bronco hybrid will reportedly launch in 2024 to rival the Jeep Wrangler 4xe, while Ford CEO Jim Farley has confirmed that an all-electric Explorer is coming. The latter is expected to arrive in 2023.
The Bronco Sport crossover, which is linked to the Escape, is also expected to get a hybrid variant in 2024. Like the all-electric Mustang Mach-E, the Bronco, Bronco Sport, and Explorer are all unconfirmed vehicles for Australia.
It’s unclear if the Mustang Hybrid will be a different story. The Ford pony car has proven to be Australia’s best-selling vehicle in the VFACTS sports car category.
This year, Ford has sold 1934 Mustangs, more than the cheaper Focus (611) and Escape (1224). Incidentally, it’s also ahead of the Kia Stinger (1025) plus another handy raft of passenger cars.
No sports car came close. The two-door Mercedes-Benz C-Class range returns with 770 sales, the two-door BMW 4 Series with 690 sales, and the Mazda MX-5 sit at 507.
2024 Ford Mustang Redesign
Ford is in the process of developing a redesign for the Mustang, but the 2024 Ford Mustang is still waiting in line for the redesign but looks at the work on the seventh generation of the nameplate, and a recent job listing has revealed that the car will come in 2022 as the 2023 model year.
Found by a 6G Mustang forum member, the job listing was posted on Linkedin by Ford in January and searches for “Wind/Road Noise and Air Leakage Factory Vehicle (PVT) Engineer Team Engineer” to work on the current Mustang as well as the redesigned model, referred to in list as S650. The current Mustang is the S550.
Originally slated for 2021, the delay likely has to do with Ford’s efforts to base the redesigned Mustang on the CD6 platform that debuted in the 2020 Ford Explorer and Lincoln Aviator twins. Remember, Ford in 2018 announced its future lineup would migrate to five very different platforms modular.
While the move to a modular platform will bring economies of scale, there are concerns that the redesigned Mustang may be larger than the current model which measures 188.3 inches in length and 107.1 inches in wheelbase.
While we don’t like the Mustang’s bigger sound, the key is weight. The current Mustang GT with manual transmission already weighs 3,743 pounds and we don’t want it to be heavier.
The result of the move to a modular platform, and specifically the CD6, is that Ford will be able to integrate hybrid and all-wheel-drive systems, which will help the automaker expand the Mustang’s appeal.
What’s not clear is whether Ford’s promised Mustang Hybrid has also been delayed. The gas-electric pony car will be out in 2020, Ford said at the car’s 2017 announcement.
The delayed timeline for the redesigned Mustang isn’t much of a surprise given current Mustang sales are still going strong (Ford sold nearly 72,500 in the US in 2019) and there are still new variants to come.
There are also rumors that Chevrolet is planning to phase out the Camaro, meaning less competition for the Mustang in the future.
2024 Ford Mustang Preview
The current range-topper Shelby GT500 Ford Mustang has been with us for two years, but anyone still sticking around for the convertible may have to give up.
In an interview with Muscle Cars & Trucks published on Monday, Hau Thai-Tang, Ford’s head of product platforms and operations officer, said the S550 Mustang platform has now reached its limit with the Shelby GT500 coupe and that’s why a convertible never existed. launched.
Ford last offered the Shelby GT500 Convertible for the 2014 model year, and there’s still a chance someone could return in the next generation of Mustangs.
The redesigned seventh-generation Mustang, the S650, is expected to arrive for the 2023 model year based on an updated version of the S550 Mustang platform, and this updated platform has the potential to support the new Shelby GT500 Convertible.
Ford at one point considered planning the S650 Mustang on the new CD6 rear-wheel-drive platform that debuted in the 2020 Ford Explorer and related Lincoln Aviator.
However, Ford’s push to make the most of its electric lineup by the end of the decade has likely changed the automaker’s thinking.
Now it looks like the Mustang S650 will be a stop-gap measure before a fully electric Mustang arrives towards the end of the decade. Ford is currently spending a lot of money on the development of a new electric platform.
2024 Ford Mustang Rumors
Reporting from the Torque News site, rumors circulated about the next-generation Mustang. Will it have an electric motor? Will it be released in 2023, 2024 or maybe 2028? Will Ford really stop the internal combustion of their pony car? We answer or at least try to explain everything that makes sense and help decipher fact from fiction.
With all the talk and attention about the 2021 Mustang MachE lately, it looks like the original Ford Mustang has been forgotten.
But I’m not here to talk about that or MachE, but rather let’s try to break down some of the news that has surfaced about the next-generation Mustang, known as the S650.
Automotive News, one of the industry’s most respected authorities, reports that the seventh-generation pony car known as the S650, which will replace the current Mustang known as the S550, will launch in 2022 as the 2023 model year. Of course.
From a product design perspective, the S650 was engineered, homologated, and prototyped, even spy photos captured the new Mustang camouflaged on the road.
Ford Mustang no longer has an internal combustion engine
The Motor1 story mentions a YouTube channel that claims Ford will remove all internal combustion engines (ICE) from the Mustang lineup by 2028.
This is sure to anger and upset Mustang fans and it seems like an ambitious goal for the Ford Motor Company. Without a doubt, gasoline engines will eventually be a thing of the past, but I’m told the V8 is still the future at Ford.
Many states have passed laws banning ICE in early 2030 which has a number of hurdles that I will not face. Let’s just say 2030 and no ICE technology is a dream for most of the United States.
With the new administration in Washington, EPA regulations are expected to tighten. One Ford insider told me that auto executives were briefed beforehand on what a Democratic government would mean for the industry.
If these Ford executives see the writing on the wall, it makes sense that they should call Audible and decide to speed up the timeline for the Mustang EV. They already have the blueprints with the Mustang Mach-E.
A report by YouTuber Autoline Daily says the new electric Mustang will be built at Flat Rock. It will take significant time to prepare for EV development as the Mach-E is being built at a plant in Mexico. This is where the report doesn’t make sense to me.
Why did Ford develop an entirely new EV motor for the Mustang when they already had one for the Mach-E? There’s actually a GT version too, so there’s actually two.
The next-generation Mustang won’t be out until 2028
Part of Motor1’s story via the Autoline YouTube channel is that the S650 is now delayed until 2028. This means removing all the work done so far to get the S650 to Job One.
I spoke to a Ford engineer who said this was not true. He said a lot had been done on the S650 and it was going according to plan.
There are spy photos of the S650 so that tells us how far this has come. Ford invested hundreds of millions of dollars in the development of a new program. So it would be financially stupid to undo what was done.
Most likely the rumored Mustang EV won’t be part of the S650’s initial launch. Without firm confirmation, it’s only speculative at this point when the S650 Mustang will come out.
But since the current generation of the S550 has been around since the 2015 model year, waiting until 2028 would put this generation’s tail end at 13 years and that’s quite a long time in the teeth.
We know Mustang sales have been declining, so driving the older generation would be a bad decision. Even waiting until 2023 would put the current generation at 8 years old and that’s almost right. We’ll see.
A Mustang EV is coming
This is hardly a rumor as we know at some point, there will be an all-electric version of the original Ford Mustang. I can’t believe this will disappoint even diehard fans.
EVs have an insane amount of torque and performance and the only thing an electric pony car lacks is the sound of a V8.
While you can’t ignore its importance to some, it won’t be a deal-breaker either. Just check out this article about the electric Mustang Cobra Jet 1400 that ran the quarter-mile in 8.7 seconds.
We also know that an all-wheel-drive hybrid version of the Mustang will come as part of the 7th generation S650 design.
I think we will eventually see an electric Ford Mustang (not a crossover). And it will be interesting to see how well it will be received. And of course how well the Mach-E is likely to drive the direction and future of the Mustang.
In fact, I wrote that those who supported the Mach-E flop didn’t really care about the Mustang name or legacy. I believe the two are now tied together.
If the Mach-E succeeds, it will benefit the Mustang pony car. Likewise, if it fails, it will most likely accelerate the release of the legendary car.
The final verdict on this rumor, you can take this one to the bank. It will happen. It’s only a matter of time.
So, hopefully, this helps clear things up. My internal sources are pretty clear that some of these latest rumors are nothing more than what is said here or a reaction to the new political circumstances in Washington.
I hate politics and the discussion about them, but you also can’t ignore that if/when a new EPA standard is introduced, or the push towards a Green New Deal compromise that the Ford Mustang as we know it, with its snarling V8 engine it will eventually go away. But don’t write it just yet. A lot can change and a lot can happen.
Let me hear your thoughts on this. There are a lot of rumors out there. And a lot of speculation. I don’t have an answer but would like to hear what you think might happen to the Mustang.

2024 Ford Mustang Debut
With an anticipated debut in the fall of 2022, the fan community is already filled with rumors and guesses about what the next generation Mustang will bring. The new model is expected to have a term of 8 years, which runs from 2023-2030.
The code name of the 7th generation Mustang, S650, is confirmed by an engineer job listing posted by Ford on LinkedIn. Although the page was quickly deleted, fans are already referring to the next-generation pony by its code designation. There isn’t much concrete information yet, but here are some of the top rumors and expectations.
2024 Ford Mustang Design
Customers are already looking forward to what the next-generation Mustang will look like. We haven’t even seen the prototype yet, and the spy shots won’t leak until mid-2021. Regardless of the looks, there are bound to be fans and detractors.
The Mustang S650 is expected to use the CD6 platform version. This is the RWD architecture that launched with the redesigned Ford Explorer and Lincoln Aviator in 2020.
This worries fans for two reasons. The first is that they don’t want the Mustang to share the platform with the crossover. Second, customers noticed that the launch of these two models had a lot of production and build issues.
But overall, the CD6 is a good RWD platform that leaves plenty of room for the big engine upfront. And just because the crossover’s size is big doesn’t mean the Mustang can’t stay small.
In the past, the Fox platform was also used for large old 4-door sedans and station wagons. Plus, as seen in the Aviator, there is the potential for a very strong hybrid system.
The Lincoln SUV hybrid puts out 494 hp and 634 lb-ft of torque, more power than any Mustang except the S550 GT500.
Hybrid and electric models won’t take over either. There must be a V8 variant with RWD and manual transmission. And the idea of an AWD, ultra-powerful hybrid is cool too. The awesome MagneRide suspension will probably remain an option, too.
2024 Ford Mustang Hybrid
On the hybrid segment the report from Automotive News is in line with previous rumors from the UK and US over the past two years, suggesting a global launch for the next-generation Mustang in 2022, and a sales launch in overseas markets in 2023 making the ‘S550’ the one to come out. . The Mustang was eight years old at the time it was replaced.
It’s also possible that the Mustang Hybrid will be engineered for right-hand drive, given that it will be necessary if Ford plans to continue selling sports cars in the UK, which is part of Ford Europe’s promise to offer plug-in hybrids or all-electric versions of passenger cars and SUVs respectively. in the middle of 2026.
Prior to the arrival of the hybrid powertrain, it is likely that the engine range will be eclipsed by a revised version of the current Mustang’s naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8, which develops 339kW and 556Nm in the Australian-delivered Mustang GT variant, or 345kW/556Nm in the Limited-run Mach 1 variant. Transmission options the six-speed manual and 10-speed automatic are likely to continue.
A 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder ‘Ecoboost’ option will likely continue as an entry-level model, with the car currently digging 236kW and 448Nm in the tuned-up ‘High Performance’ variant.
There’s no word yet on an electric Mustang in development, with rumors in 2020 of a Mustang EV on track for a late 2028 launch dubbed “blatant speculation” by Ford representatives.
The 2023 generation Ford Mustang ‘S650’ will be just one of many Ford models to adopt hybrid power in the years to come, according to Automotive News, with electric versions of the Bronco off-road SUV, the Bronco Sport mid-size SUV, the full-size Expedition SUV. and Ranger Australia ready to launch in 2024 or 2025.
The hybrid Ford Mustang will see it adopt a different philosophy to its American cross-city muscle car rivals, with Dodge confirming an electric muscle car to launch in 2024 although a concept will be shown next year and rumors suggesting Chevrolet will discontinue the two-door Camaro in 2024, replacing it. with an electric sports sedan by 2025.
2024 Ford Mustang Engine
Ford currently offers the Mustang with a choice of a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder and a naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 engine, with a naturally aspirated 3.7-liter V6 being sold elsewhere in 2017.
In Australia, the High-Performance four-cylinder produces 236kW of power and 448Nm of torque, while the V8 produces 339kW and 556Nm in the GT and 345kW and 556Nm at Mach 1.

2024 Ford Mustang Powertrain
The S650 Mustang will likely feature several new engines. People think that the 3.5 V6 EcoBoost can be used in either traditional or hybrid platforms.
A Mustang hybrid seemed possible in 2020, but now it seems possible for the S650.
The 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6, seen in the new Bronco, is another possibility but seems less likely for the Mustang. Here are some potential engine options for the new S650 powertrain.
2024 Ford Mustang Expectation
Mustang fans can’t wait to learn every inch of this new model. While we wait with bated breath, here are the top five things we hope the S650 has to offer.
- Less Weight
Mustangs have added weight over the years. With some models pushing nearly 4,000 lbs, a lighter Mustang would be great to look at. Lower mass means better handling. However, this seems unlikely given the possibility of using the CD6 platform. Hybrid Mustangs will weigh more.
- Return of Boss 302
Boss 302 was a fan favorite from 2012-2013. We want to see it again as a mainstream performance model. There should be trim placed above the GT and below the Shelby model. The classic styling and performance enhancements of the Boss 302 make it a natural fit.
- DCT Instead of 10 Speed Auto
Modern performance cars like the Mustang deserve a dual-clutch transmission. The torque-converted 10-speed auto is good and offers excellent acceleration. But even with economy cars and crossovers making the switch, it’s time for the Mustang to get a fast-moving DCT, too.
- New GT500KR New
The potential of the GT500KR version of the S650 excites us. With the new platform, there is the possibility of an enhanced version of the GT500 with AWD. With room for over 800 hp, this means an insane launch on the drag strip, plus world-class track performance.
- Electric Mustang
The Mustang Mach-E has been making waves, often controversially. Overall, this is a very good car. But we’d love to see more of a true electric Mustang coupe. Similar to the electric concept at SEMA 2019. This two-door sports car can offer instant acceleration and outstanding performance while saving trips to the pump.
2024 Ford Mustang Release Date
An Australian launch has yet to be confirmed for the new Ford S650 series pony car, although given its evolutionary underpinnings, the development of a new right-hand drive model will be relatively cost-effective, compared to the all-new platform.
As well as the release schedule for the 2024 Ford Mustang has also not been confirmed, it is still a mystery until now. But stay on this website, we will continue to monitor and provide information on the latest developments.
2024 Ford Mustang Price
Our expectations for the price of the new 2024 Ford Mustang will start at an estimated price of around $29,899.
