2024 Ford Mustang Prototype Showed Up At Woodward Dream Cruise

The 2024 Ford Mustang will represent the very first model year for the all-new, S650 generation of the iconic pony car. Following years of anticipation, a report surfaced recently that suggested the 2024 Ford Mustang would make its debut at this year’s Detroit Auto Show in September, a fact that was later confirmed by CEO Jim Farley himself. That reveal will happen at a special event dubbed “The Stampede,” which will take place on the iconic Woodward Avenue, which just hosted the the annual Dream Cruise this past weekend. Coincidentally, a 2024 Ford Mustang prototype was also in attendance.

Ford North America Product Communications director Mike Levine posted a couple of pictures of the 2024 Ford Mustang prototype on Twitter as it posed next to a representation of every Mustang generation dating back to the original model. This particular prototype also looks exactly like the possible high-performance model Ford Authority spies spotted back in February, as it’s wearing the exact same sort of camo and wheel design.

While the 2024 Ford Mustang is an all-new model, it won’t be radically different from the S550, and will instead take more of an evolutionary approach. This much is clear from a pair of recent leaks giving us a good look at the S650 in both base and GT form. As Ford Authority exclusively reported in April, the next-gen Mustang will also launch with carryover engines – the Ford 2.3L I-4 EcoBoost and Ford 5.0L V8 Coyote – though hybrid versions of both power plants remain a possibility for future model years. The V8-powered model will approach the 500 horsepower mark, as Ford Authority exclusively reported last month, though it will also likely be the last gas-powered model in the pony car’s illustrious history.

As recent spy photos of the interior previously revealed, the next-gen Mustang will be equipped with a new flat-bottom steering wheel, a new digital instrument cluster design, and a larger infotainment screen. The S650 won’t be available in all-wheel drive configuration, as Ford Authority exclusively reported in early April, and will continue to be built at the Flat Rock Assembly plant with an eight-year life cycle, as Ford Authority reported last August.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.
