Order banks for the 2024 Ford Mustang are now open, finally allowing customers to order the seventh-generation muscle car. Revealed back in September of last year, the forthcoming Mustang represents much more than a refresh, featuring a completely overhauled exterior and interior, along with a host of new tech and two new powerplants. These are the turbocharged Ford 2.3L EcoBoost I4 engine and the Ford 5.0L Coyote V8 engine. The former will be available in the base 2024 Mustang EcoBoost; the latter is also utilized by the high-performance 2024 Ford Mustang Dark Horse.

    That color looks fantastic on the new Mustang!

    1. Darelle Beavis

      That color looks horrific but to each thier own.

    2. Mr. Mike

      I agree with you. Hope it’s not a one year color because it’s the color to get.

  2. Buddy

    what happened to the dark matter grey metallic?

  3. Mike TowpathTraveler

    Just another new name for old, tired, worn out……gray.

  4. Shawn

    I have that color on my Mach E and it looks awesome.

  5. ViperACR

    From the comments, it’s nice to see there’s some consensus.

  6. Mrx19

    These will sell well initially, simply because they are new. Long term, not so sure. Most “carguy” friends I have talked to think the current generation front end is more attractive and have universally given a thumbs down to the new dash.

    1. Mr. Mike

      This happens every generation with every vehicle. “meeehhhhh, my current one is better, the new one is worse, they ruined it”. It’s shocking to me no one see’s this trend and continues to say stuff like this.

      I never liked the 2018 front refresh and it’s been 5 years and I still don’t. This will age far better in my opinion.

      Vapor Blue is the hotness. You can judge a dirty Michigan car in the winter. Look up the videos of it, it’s a stunner.

    2. John

      Personally, I skipped the ugly S550 gen bc it looked too European and has a catfish looking front end. The S650 looks FAR more attractive to me and a few car buddies.

    hideous photos

  8. Rob Smyth

    I have a ’16 GTCS. At 73, was thinking about trading for the 60th anniversary edition. But……. the f—king dash scares me to death. Why the tv set and all that BS…….. is it really necessary to go fast every now and then. Think I’ll just keep my 2016.

    1. Mr. Mike

      I’m 39 and probably their target market. I will probably feel the same with new vehicles when I’m 73 as I won’t be their target market either. Youth wants tech and car manufacturers want youth.

  9. Ken Larson

    Another ugly bland color. Bring back real colors.

  10. David Newell

    Not for me I’ll take one in Kona Blue

  11. Ricky

    Too bad, you can’t get a Dark Blue Cloth Top on the Convertible with Light Blue Leather and Chrome Rims (can’t we please dump the black rims, they just don’t look good anymore), time to move away from black rims.

  12. James

    Just bought an Ecoboost premium 2024 Vapour blue, performance exhaust 20X9 alum rims, get it in September. Love the colour and everthing about it.

  13. James

    By the way im 58, and love the technology it packs
