Following its reveal last September, production of the all-new 2024 Ford Mustang began at the Flat Rock Assembly plant earlier this year, with deliveries commencing in mid-August. With the ongoing UAW strike not impacting the next-generation pony car – at least for now – production has steadily ramped up, going from 893 in April to 563 in May, 2,682 in June, 4,349 in July, and 7,933 in August. Now, according to FoMoCo’s most recent sales report, 2024 Ford Mustang production mostly held the proverbial line in September, too.
Last month, The Blue Oval produced 7,759 units of the 2024 Ford Mustang at Flat Rock, which is a slight decrease of 174 units, or a little over two percent, month-over-month. It also brings the pony car’s year-to-date totals to 43,114 units, which is a pretty solid number considering the major slowdown that occurred as FoMoCo changed over to the S650-gen model this past spring and summer. As of mid-August, the majority of 2024 Mustang customers have opted for the the 5.0L V8 Coyote engine, too.
As Ford Authority previously reported, 2024 Ford Mustang production was initially cut back at the Flat Rock Assembly plant the week of April 24th, and it was down completely the week of May 1st. That pause was later extended an additional week as well as The Blue Oval worked to rectify the issues that it discovered early in the pre-production process.
The build-out of the all-new pony car was reportedly finished in early April, but final quality reviews were soon implemented to focus on a trio of aforementioned areas related to fit and finish, as well as the pony car’s electrical and mechanical gremlins. After identifying these issues, Ford opted to stop production and delay the rollout of the new Mustang by correcting the problems before delivering vehicles to customers, much the same way it handled both 2023 Ford Super Duty and 2023 Ford Escape production.
