2024 Mustang EcoBoost Convertible With Top Down: First Pics

The all-new, S650 2024 Ford Mustang was revealed back in September following years of speculation, rumors, and spied prototypes, wearing new bodywork, with a completely redesigned cabin and revised powertrains. Since then, Ford Authority has spotted quite a few new Mustangs driving around, including a handful of EcoBoost models – a red base coupe, a Vapor Blue convertible, and an Oxford White convertible, to name just a few. However, while we’ve seen the new pony car in GT form with the top down, we had yet to see what the base model looks like with its roof peeled back – until now, at least, because Ford Authority just spotted this Shadow Black 2024 Ford EcoBoost convertible with its soft top in the retracted position.

With frigid temps settling in across the country, this isn’t the type of thing one might expect to see while cruising around, but it does give us a nice look at what the 2024 Ford Mustang EcoBoost convertible looks like with its top down – something that wasn’t presented by the press photos released at the S650’s debut. This particular model appears to be an EcoBoost Premium with the optional Brembo brakes, which in this case are painted red. Consumers can also opt for Grabber Blue and black, if they please.

More than a simple refresh, the 2024 Ford Mustang retains its familiar profile while introducing edgier styling for the new model year, along with 11 different exterior colors, new stripe colors and designs, and wheel options ranging in diameter from 17 inches to 20 inches. Inside the cabin, the S650 features a fighter jet-inspired cockpit sporting a flat-bottom steering wheel, a 12.4-inch digital instrument cluster, and a new 13.2-inch infotainment screen running Sync 4.

Under the hood, the 2024 Mustang EcoBoost comes equipped with a brand new version of the turbocharged Ford 2.3L I-4 EcoBoost engine, though it isn’t available with a six-speed manual transmission, as that gearbox has been reserved for V8-powered models only. As Ford Authority recently reported, 2024 EcoBoost models are rated to produce 315 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque.

The all-new, redesigned 2024 Ford Mustang just wrapped up its validation testing, as Ford Authority recently reported, will continue to be produced at the Flat Rock Assembly plant in Michigan, and is currently scheduled to launch in the U.S. in the summer of 2023, followed by Europe later next year.

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 think I like the looks of the current model slightly more than the 2024, especially on the convertible. There’s something about that front end I just don’t like. Too bulky looking.

  2. C-Bo

    Front headlights and rear quarters are Camaro-esque.

    Love that front 3/4 shot, it looks like 1000 feet of hood. I like look of the taillights tucked into the kammback pocket.

  4. Gabe

    Looks like a slightly toned down version of my 2019 with aftermarket headlights and taillights.

    Mid-life refresh so I guess I shouldn’t be too critical.

    Are you sure that’s not dark matter grey? Been dying to see that color, should be close to black but more metallic and a bit lighter…
