Earlier this week, Ford Authority exclusively reported that the 2024 Ford Mustang GT – which was just revealed in September – will generate 450 horsepower from its naturally-aspirated Ford 5.0L V8 Coyote powerplant. That’s precisely the same output as the current, S550-gen GT. Now, Ford Authority has gotten its hands on a Monroney label – or window sticker – for the 2024 Ford Mustang GT, which sheds more light on the matter.
This 2024 Ford Mustang GT Monroney label appears to be the very first instance of the sticker for this vehicle, and as we can see clearly at the top, it shows the 450 horsepower figure – the same as we reported a few days ago. This particular sticker belongs to a GT Premium Coupe model finished in Vapor Blue Metallic equipped with the six-speed manual transmission as well as the optional Performance Package.
As Ford Authority was the first to report in October 2021, the 2022 Mustang GT and Mach 1 models took a 10 horsepower and 10 pound-feet of torque hit to their respective outputs, which brought those numbers down from 460 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque to 450 horsepower and 410 pound-feet.
It is worth noting that this 450 horsepower figure applies to the GT only – not the new Dark Horse variant, which is targeting an output of 500 horsepower and sounds pretty amazing, to boot. As a reminder, the 2024 Mustang GT features the fourth-generation version of the Coyote powerplant, which utilizes dual throttle bodies and a dual air intake box. It can be mated to a six-speed manual transmission – which the EcoBoost Mustang is no longer available with – or FoMoCo’s 10-speed automatic gearbox.
Before we go, we will leave you with this bit: it’s possible that the power rating mentioned on the sticker seen above ends being slightly different once the seventh-gen pony begins production. We’re digging… stay tuned.
As a reminder, 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.
