60s-style horizontal grille and streamlined roofline

The Ford Mustang has remained relatively bland in styling since 2014, but 2024 is the year they’ll really kick it up a notch. For the 2024 Mustang, Ford sharpened the edges with a ’60s-style horizontal grille and an optimized roofline for racing helmets.

The new design has an atmosphere very similar to the GT3 and GT4 racing livery normally seen on street racing cars. The most obvious difference in appearance is between the EcoBoost and GT trims, as the EcoBoost retains its rounded look, while the GT boasts a sharper look with a less rounded hood.

Most of the controls in the cabin are located in the 13.2-inch infotainment system

Gray 2024 Ford Mustang GT

The 2024 Mustang has taken it upon itself to take the fun element of muscle cars and make some fat donuts around it. The 2024 Ford Mustang is powered by an all-new, yet still familiar 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine and Coyote V8 engine. The base trim generates 315 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque, mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission exclusive to this trim.

The Ford Mustang GT, on the other hand, is powered by a Coyote V8 that generates 480 horsepower and 415 lb-ft of torque, with the added control of a six-speed manual transmission that comes standard.

The 2024 Ford Mustang features remote rev control, which means owners can start their Coyote V8 engine from a key fob and hear their muscle car’s engine roar.

An addition to the performance package is the “Drift Brake”. The Ford Hoon Assisted function can be considered an electronic brake optimized for drifting.
