Ford CEO Jim Farley Wants Your Ford Mustang Questions

Back in May, Ford CEO Jim Farley began hosting a new podcast on Spotify dubbed Drive, in which he interviews a host of celebrities, fellow executives, royals, professional athletes, and race car drivers as he seeks to find out what “drives” each of these folks to be successful in life. Now, with the next-generation S650 Ford Mustang set to debut next month at a special Detroit Auto Show event called “The Stampede,” Jim Farley is also asking fans to submit their questions regarding the new pony car, which he will answer on a special upcoming episode of Drive.

The bonus episode will also feature Ford archivist Ted Ryan, who will join Farley for the special Q&A session. Those interested in submitting their question with the chance to have it answered by that duo can do so by heading over here and filling out a special form with a bit of personal information required as well.

Just a few months ago, a pair of leaks gave us our first look at the S650 2024 Ford Mustang and its new front end in both base and GT form. Those leaks revealed that the 2024 Mustang won’t look radically different from the current model on the outside, save for some updates to the front and rear fascias, at least. The interior is a different story, as it’s equipped with a new flat-bottom steering wheel, a new digital instrument cluster design, and a larger infotainment screen. The S650 Mustang will continue to be built at the Flat Rock Assembly plant, and is expected to have an eight-year life cycle, as Ford Authority reported last August.

In terms of powertrains, the S650 Mustang will launch with carryover versions of both the Ford 2.3L I-4 EcoBoost and Ford 5.0L V8 Coyote powerplants, though at least one V8-powered variant will approach the 500 horsepower mark. A hybrid variant has reportedly been canceled, though the S650 will likely be the last generation to feature an ICE-powered V8 Mustang, as Ford Authority reported earlier this month.

We’ll have more on the S650 Ford Mustang very soon, so be sure and subscribe to Ford Authority for more Ford Mustang news and 24/7 Ford news coverage.

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.

    I question, will the next generation mustang be technologically advanced, such as new and innovative technology as well as offered with better interior quality and design?

    The auto trunk Release should open the trunk all the way up you shouldn’t have to wedge your finger’s under to pick it up😊

  3. Zack Tutt

    Will the next gen mustang still have a V8? and will it still have the sharp intimidating look?

  4. SamT

    I need my Mustang to have AWD otherwise I’m getting a Challenger AWD. Case Closed!
    Isn’t the current Mustang like a “night of the living dead”? Past glory but still trying to dream big. S650 isn’t going to have earth shattering styling either. I would have invested in more revolutionary styling instead of same old, same old “Oh it has a bigger grille to make it new.”

  5. Richard Jones

    If this going to be the final gas powered mustang, let it go out in a big bang, let it have its own separate look, not like the other Generations of Mustangs, update everything in the car, the powertrain the interior the technology, don’t let it look like the previous Mustang with a new suit on, let the last and final gas powered Mustang have its own design! otherwise it is just the same Mustang that new and younger buyers are getting sick of looking at, and older buyers are not buying them as much as they did previously!

  6. Richard Jones

    Jim Farley, obviously you saw what GM did with the corvette, why won’t you do the same with the Mustang, stop giving us the same version of the Mustangs with a little design difference, give us a Mustang that looks different from all the rest before you pull the plug on gas operated Mustangs! The Corvette is a hot seller, the Mustang can be too if the engineers can relate to younger buyers! Buyers are trading in their Mustangs for Dodge’s chargers and Challengers and and now Dodge last charger and Challenger will get a fresh new aggressive mean stylish look that set them apart from their previous generation, why can’t the engineers at Ford stop trying to hold on to the ’60s and build something new and fresh for younger buyers?

    Anyone have any idea when this Q and A will air???

  8. Carson

    People are saying it does not appear to be a muscle car from under the camo? With all the cameras you guys have on your cars you should invest in a built in dash cam for your customers to feel safe from reckless drivers damaging their car and having to pay for it themselves.

  9. Jeff

    It’s fairly easy to find motor mounts for a 1971 or 1972 Mach 1, but the mounts changed in 1973. Do you know where I can find them for my 1973 Mach 1?
