The 2024 Ford Mustang charged onto the pony car scene at its reveal back in mid-September, representing a complete generational shift with new styling and revamped technology. One of the paints shown off at the event was Vapor Blue, and Ford Authority already spotted a new Mustang EcoBoost convertible sporting the new color shortly thereafter. Now, we’ve spotted a Ford Mustang GT dressed in the same exterior hue.
As a reminder, Vapor Blue is one of two all-new colors for the 2024 Ford Mustang, with the second being Yellow Splash, which we have also spotted adorning a new Mustang GT. Vapor Blue is a muted blue color that flows well with the seventh-generation Mustang’s styling lines and compliments the blue calipers situated behind the wheels. This particular 2024 Ford Mustang GT has clearly seen some adverse weather conditions, as its paint is coated in a wintry grime.
Up front, the 2024 Ford Mustang GT sports larger grille openings so it can breathe better at speed. Under the hood, this model harnesses the naturally-aspirated Ford 5.0L V8 Coyote, which produces 480 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque in regular guise or 486 horsepower and 418 pound-feet when paired with the optional active exhaust.
While the 2024 Mustang shares some mechanical underpinnings with its outgoing sixth-generation counterpart, the forthcoming pony car represents far more than a simple refresh. This includes a stiffer chassis and suspension for performance driving conditions, along with a completely redesigned jet fighter-inspired cockpit packed to the brim with premium technologies and comfort features.
The 2024 Mustang will be produced at the Flat Rock Assembly plant in Michigan, and is scheduled to launch in the U.S. in mid-2023, followed by a European launch later on.
