2024 Ford Mustang GT In Atlas Blue: Real World Photo Gallery

Since the debut of the all-new, S650 generation 2024 Ford Mustang last September, Ford Authority has spotted a number of new pony cars out and about, in all different colors and configurations. That list includes a pair in different shades of blue – a GT finished in the classic Grabber Blue, as well as a Vapor Blue GT, too. Now, Ford Authority has spotted another 2024 Ford Mustang GT, but this particular example is painted Atlas Blue.

This particular 2024 Ford Mustang GT isn’t equipped with the Nite Pony Package, as it has regular trim and badging that isn’t blacked-out. The same goes for the wheels, which cover red brake calipers and give the pony car a more conventional look. Otherwise, this S650 is fairly similar to previously-spotted examples of the brand new model from the past few months, aside from its particular shade of blue paint.

That means that this 2024 Ford Mustang GT is powered by a revised version of the naturally-aspirated Ford 5.0L V8 Coyote engine, which produces 480 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque or 486 horsepower and 418 pound-feet  when paired with the optional active exhaust. Buyers can choose to mate that powerplant to either the six-speed manual or 10-speed automatic transmission.

In terms of pricing, the S650 is more expensive than its predecessor, with increases ranging from $2,650 for the GT Premium to $3,650 for EcoBoost Premium models. That means the cheapest new pony car – the EcoBoost Fastback – costs $30,920, while the least expensive V8-powered model is the GT Fastback at $41,495.

Order banks for the 2024 Ford Mustang opened up back in late March – along with the launch of the build and price configurator – and production began at the Flat Rock Assembly plant in Michigan in early May. However, that process has been somewhat hindered by quality issues discovered during reviews at the plant, which FoMoCo is working to iron out before shipping the new pony car to customers.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    I like it, nice and understated even for a Mustang. Too bad the car can’t be ordered with the Dark Horse performance equipment as a sort of Mustang version of a GT3 Touring. It might miss out on the down force form the package but not everybody is looking for the racer boi/mid-life crisis look all the time.

      If they would just put a TR6060 in all the 5.0 cars the problem would be solved in my eyes. Camaro and Challenger both don’t mess around with the MT-82. I agree that the Dark Horse is a bit too contrived. I could drive a GT to work, but the DH or even a Camaro is a bit too much for my taste.

    Side and 3/4 rear views look great!

    I like it. It took the best design elements of the s550 and 6th gen Camaro – and that’s in no way backhanded or an insult. It looks great. I’m disappointed that they’re using the MT82 outside the dark horse though. That and the price is bonkers. A nicely (but not overly) optioned GT should not be over 50.
