2024 Ford Mustang GT In Grabber Blue: First Real World Pics

In the months that have passed since its official debut back in September, Ford Authority has spotted a number of 2024 Ford Mustang GT and EcoBoost models out driving around. That list includes a Vapor Blue GT coupe and EcoBoost convertible, as well as a Carbonized Gray GT drop top, to name just a few. Now, Ford Authority has spotted this 2024 Ford Mustang GT finished in the classic color dubbed Grabber Blue, giving us our first real-world look at this particular combination.

Along with the Grabber Blue hue present on this 2024 Ford Mustang GT, customers can choose from 11 different exterior colors, including two news one – the aforementioned Vapor Blue, as well as Yellow Splash. Additionally, the redesigned pony car is available with a variety of new stripe colors and designs, as well as wheel options ranging from 17 inches to 20 inches in diameter and three different brake caliper color choices – black, red, and Grabber Blue.

On the outside, the S650 Mustang retains the same basic profile as the current, S550-gen pony car, but the 2024 Ford Mustang GT and EcoBoost represent more than a simple refresh, with both sporting distinctive styling that makes each easy to distinguish from the other. For example, the 2024 Ford Mustang GT is equipped with larger, more aggressive grille openings that are engineered to increase airflow, as well as new hood vents and a redesigned front splitter.

Numerous changes have also taken place inside the cabin, where the next-generation Mustang has received a comprehensive makeover that gives it 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, base 2024 Ford Mustang models are equipped with a brand new version of the twin-turbocharged Ford 2.3L I-4 EcoBoost engine, which is rated to produce 315 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. However, unlike the S550-gen Mustang, the EcoBoost can only be paired with the 10-speed automatic transmission – not the six-speed manual, which is still available in the V8-powered GT. As for that model, it cranks out 480 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque or 486 horsepower and 418 pound-feet with the optional active exhaust, while the range-topping Dark Horse makes 500 horsepower and 418 pound-feet of torque.

The all-new, redesigned 2024 Ford Mustang will continue to be produced at the Flat Rock Assemblyplant in Michigan. The next-gen pony car is currently scheduled to launch in the U.S. in the summer of 2023, followed by Europe later next year. However, with residual values that are close to the outgoing S550, it may prove to be more attractive to finance than lease.

We’ll have more on the 2024 Mustang soon, so be sure and subscribe to Ford Authority for more Ford Mustang news and comprehensive Ford news coverage.

    1. RWFA

      Agree looks nice.

  2. Metz

    I love this car and color, I’m still warming up to the back but overall the car is very nice.

  3. Jim Dowmon

    I hope to order Grabber Blue with blue stiching. Does anyone have any info on what is included in GT and DH 700A option pkg $2595 ? Also can you order blue interior without 700A ?

  4. buddy

    when will ordering open up for the new mustang?

    The color is spectacular, although probably to flashy for some of the blog participants here. The new Mustang styling is a modern take on the tradition look and feel we all love. Edgy, but subtle with a real lean into the future. Traditionalists and enthusiasts only clash comes with the new dash and tablet layout. The ‘fighter jet’ cockpit departs too much from the essence of what a muscle car is…. if it was offered as an ‘option’, I am willing to bet you would see the tablets on the most expensive models only.

      Yes all car company’s are moving into the big dash.. German cars have already done this for years and folk were glorifying those cars. But as soon as an American company does so. It’s moving from tradition? Look at the BMW’s, Hondas, Lexus, And Genesis.

  6. Mike says...

    Love the color, new body style. Still trying to like the new play station dashboard. I wish they made the new tablet version an option or incorporated it into an option package. AS it is, I am not convinced this interior is a step in the right direction for a traditional muscle car.

    1. Mike B

      Mustang has moved from muscle to a more sporty for years.

  7. Jim Elsasser

    Love the Grabber Blue color on the 2023….dont like the “redesign”……
    What redesign? Tweeked the front end that was it. I keep saying it, get a design head that has gasoline in their veins, not some tea drinking female Brit.
    Bring back the real Mustang, works for Challenger.

      The driving experience, suspension, quality has changed In this new model. The older model had cheap plastic and hard leather inside and not to mention the same interior for 9 straight years.It’s becoming more luxurious while keeping a powerful V8. If you don’t like it, don’t buy it.

    unlike most repliers, I think the grabber blue on this car with these wheels, looks cheap, unappealing , it has no class as shown. Maybe with some racing stripes better looking wheels it becomes ok, but as shown nope.

  9. \'RatedRCars\'onYoutube

    Needs a hefty dose of rear spoiler.

  10. Leslie funk

    Too similar to the Charger. What are you thinking Ford 😒

    1. Mike B

      Not similar at all. It’s safer, better quality and a more powerful engine!

  11. philip tilley

    Nice car , but I don’t like that trim at the bottom of the grille and I definitely don’t like that two bar grille at the bottom of the bonnet, why not press them out like the cosworth’s.

  12. Mark-Anthony Hodges

    Overall I like the new car but I love the interior. My only concern and disappointment is no fog lights. They are highly functional and add a unique look when they are on at night. I do a lot of night driving, comparing the S550 head lights to other cars I’ve rented, the head lights come up short. Fog lights are appreciated when you’re flying down the highway at 70 mph plus, more plus and something is laying in the road. I live in TN, and if it’s not a deer carcass, its a fox or maybe just a wall of fog. If I upgrade to an S650, I will definitely be looking to the aftermarket for some fog lights.
