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 very dirty 2024 Ford Mustang GT convertible, too.
It’s difficult to tell what hue this 2024 Ford Mustang GT is finished in, given the abundance of road salt covering its flanks. However, 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 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 Assembly plant 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 non-stop Ford news coverage.
