2024 Ford Mustang Dark Horse Looks Great In White

The redesigned seventh-generation 2024 Ford Mustang was recently revealed, ushering in a new chapter in the pony car’s history. The forthcoming model introduces a host of changes over the outgoing sixth-generation Mustang, and its lineup includes the Mustang Dark Horse, a performance-oriented variant that’s ready to tackle the track. So far, photos have only depicted the muscle car in blue, but an image recently surfaced on social media of the Mustang Dark Horse with a stunning white paint job.

Contrary to what its name might suggest, the 2024 Ford Mustang Dark Horse will not be exclusively offered with shadowy paint colors. In fact, the name is a reference to an old idiom that describes a contender about which little is known, but goes out and wins anyway. With that in mind, the Mustang Dark Horse will be offered in a range of colors, including the aforementioned Blue Ember metallic and stark white, as evidenced by this image posted to Twitter by Ford spokesperson Mike Levine.

The white exterior coat really emphasizes the substantial cosmetic changes present on the 2024 Ford Mustang, especially around its front fascia. The bright color contrasts with the plastic grille molding, which give it a fierce, race car-like outlook. Now, it seems that this image is not an actual photo, but instead a digital rendering that will likely be part of the Build and Price tool when it goes online. However, it’s certainly interesting to get a look at the Mustang Dark Horse in a color other than dark, shadowy blue.

The all-new 2024 Ford Mustang is scheduled to launch in the summer of 2023, and will continue to be produced at the Flat Rock Assembly plant in Michigan.

    I still think the black around the headlights should go. It would make the smaller, slimmer lights looks just that…smaller and slimmer.

    1. jrzycobra

      Agreed. If it was a human it would go to a plastic surgeon to get the dark bags removed.

    Have to say I wasn’t sure about the new body at first, but the design grows in one, and then, suddenly, it’s clear, this is a very good looking car.

    I like the dark color boxing around the headlamps too.

    1. Brad Bates

      my thoughts exactly! I was indifferent to the new body style, but this looks amazing!

  3. Smitty

    Sign me Up PLEASE!! I have to have one!!

    I’d wish the black on the headlights was a little smaller and lined up with the headlights better.

      I can’t get over the fact that it looks like it went a little crazy with the charcoal black under-eyeliner like I did in high school, lol.

    Not overly impressed with the new Camaro/Charger look. There’s a reason those two are being discontinued. Design needs to make a fresh design not a copy approach. I’ve had and appreciated every model style over the years except for the Mustang II. I’m resently in a ’21 550, but definitely wouldn’t trade it for a 650.

  6. John

    HUGE improvement over the S550 GT/Mach 1 looks-wise. At the top of my list to replace my daily driver.

    Ford is doing a great job lately, love many of their recent announcements.

  7. Dan

    Cool Camaro

    1. GFYDan

      How provocative of you.

  8. Don

    I wish I had one.

  9. Lealand

    I’ll take it without the stripes! Then again if Ford puts Performance Blue back on that palette I’d go for a Dark Horse in that as well.

  10. Cricket

    I’ve owned numerous mustangs over the years from 68 s to 93s I’m definitely buying the dark horse as soon as available Ford almost lost me with this ev I mean come on they take the mustang name and put it on that really I mean why not use tempo or escort not mustang they take a name the represents muscle and stick it on a ev smh if they hadn’t came out with dark horse they would have lost my business for life

  11. Steve

    Most old car guys don’t get the ev thing but in coming years their not relevant anymore ev are far better than ice cars.

  12. Travis

    All I want to know is how does a man get selected for the pits hot seat in this dark horse.i know i can push it to its full potential

  13. Robert

    I have my dark horse ready and I’m happy he is great
