The 2024 Ford Mustang Dark Horse harnesses a modified version of Ford’s 5.0L V8 Coyote engine with 500 horsepower and 418 pound-feet of torque ready to unleash, making it the most track-capable street-legal 5.0L V8-powered Mustang ever produced. The Dark Horse moniker does not refer to the vehicle’s color – rather, it’s a reference to an old idiom that describes an unknown, but successful, competitor.

    That’s a nice color, both good and bad that it’s a limited color.

    Most of the new colors offered are boring and dull. Thankfully my old GT500 is Torch Red.

      Dude. GMAB.

    Love the color and look of the new Mustang…. but suspect its days are very numbered.
    It will be interesting to watch how Ford’s faithful react when its discontinued.
    Ford has and is taking a mercenary tack that pretty much abandons their loyalty to anything, anybody.
    Hope it works or they will become ‘just another company’ that used to be famous.

      Mike, Mike, Mike. Where are you getting this?

      There has been ZERO talk of discontinuing the Mustang, so your comment is based on nothing. And no, Ford’s “mercenary tack” is no reason to believe an automotive icon is going away.
