- The 2024 Ford Mustang will launch at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday, September 14.
- Ford will broadcast the reveal, which will be held as part of the Detroit auto show, live on YouTube.
- Ford CEO Jim Farley earlier this year confirmed that the seventh-generation Mustang would offer a manual transmission.
Fans have been patiently—or perhaps not so patiently—for the debut of the seventh-generation Ford Mustang. Well, the wait will end at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday, September 14, when Ford will reveal its newest pony car as part of the Detroit auto show. The debut of the new ‘Stang’ can be watched from afar via a live stream on YouTube.
The new Mustang (called the S650) will be a 2024 model. Ford CEO Jim Farley in July confirmed on Twitter the continuation of the manual transmission for the pony car, even posting the hashtag #SaveTheManuals.
We expect the new version to continue to offer the turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder and the Coyote 5.0-liter V-8. Currently, the EcoBoost’ Handlebar makes 310 horsepower, while the V-8 in the Mustang GT makes 460 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. We expect both engine variants to be slightly tuned for the new generation, likely to slightly increase the amount of power.
Based on a camouflaged test mule we saw driving near our southeast Michigan office, the exterior styling of the car won’t be much different from the current Mustang S550. We expect to see more significant changes to the interior. All of that and more to be answered tomorrow night.
