All Mustang fans are worried about what All-electric Mach-E Machine That could mean for the future of their car of choice, today Ford confirmed that the seventh generation will continue to deliver internal combustion power (for at least a few more years). The new Ford 2024 Mustang will go on sale in mid-2023 in both coupe and convertible designs, offering the choice between the long-running GT with the 5.0-liter Coyote V8 or the turbocharged 2.3-liter lower rims. The manual transmission remains on the spec sheet.
Ford declined to share specific power numbers, only hinting that the 5.0-liter Coyote would pump out the highest horsepower naturally aspirated ever for a Mustang GT, made possible thanks to the new dual-intake throttle body design. For context, the sixth-generation Mach 1 delivered 480 horsepower from the 5.0 Coyote engine for 2021 before that number dropped by 10 horsepower in 2022. Meanwhile, the 2.3-liter EcoBoost will be an all-new unit, marking the seventh unit. – The generation should easily outperform the outgoing four-turbo turbo’s 310 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque.
Ford worked on sixth-generation lines to produce more futuristic seventh-generation angular lines. The general style trends are closer to Mach-E, no doubt, although from certain angles they again hint at a BMW 8 Series Coupe or even Chevrolet Camaro Square Backdrop. The new Gradient Track also differentiates the EcoBoost and GT models with exterior styling cues that hint at performance under the skin: the GT gets a larger front grille for better airflow, plus hood vents and a revised diffuser. The plasticine aesthetic, and especially the diffuser’s massive livery, is sure to cater to modern-day needs, as do LED headlights, aluminum-alloy wheels up to 20 inches, and three different colors for the optional Brembo brakes.
To help improve the performance dynamics made possible by converting the sixth generation to an independent rear suspension system, all new trims include the ability to adjust steering weight, engine response, stability control, and transmission shift points across six preset driving modes and six customizable modes. appearance. Both the GT and EcoBoost can also be selected with the All-In-One Performance Package, which adds a Torsen automatic torque-biased rear differential, wider wheels and tires, larger Brembo brakes, and a front tower strut. Mustang’s popular MagneRide suspension system will also be carried over.
Of course, given Ford’s $50 billion promise to invest in electric vehicle development by 2026, details from the popular Mach-E will also appear on the gas-powered Mustang, including a brass-colored instrument cluster and advanced driver assistance technology suite. From speed signal recognition to active pit mitigation. Connectivity via the FordPass smartphone app, a central 13.2-inch Sync 4 infotainment package that can optionally be combined with the dashboard and Ford Power-Up software update capability.
as such electrification The auto industry continues to change at an ever-increasing rate, and Blue Oval fans will no doubt cling to this new Mustang ICE as the beloved transmission of a bygone era—especially as Dodge promises to usher in a new spirit of electronic muscle. Whether supply chain issues will combine with the nostalgia factor to raise prices accordingly by the time sales actually begin remains a serious question. In the meantime, rest assured that at least one more Mustang powered by a stick-clutch V8 engine will leave Flat Rock, Michigan, before the ICE era is over for good.
