The all-new S650 generation 2024 Ford Mustang officially debuted back in September 2022 and has since launched in the U.S., though the distinctly American pony car will also be sold in a handful of other global markets, including China, Australia, and Europe. However, while the 2024 Ford Mustang was originally slated to launch in Europe in late 2023, that time came and went, though now, customers in that specific region can now officially order their new pony car, the automaker has announced.
In Europe, the 2024 Ford Mustang is essentially identical to its American counterpart, save for a few limitations. Customers there can opt for a fastback coupe or convertible, but only in GT or Dark Horse form – no EcoBoost. That means one powertrain choice – the naturally-aspirated Ford 5.0L V8 Coyote engine – mated to either the six-speed manual transmission or 10-speed automatic – though FoMoCo didn’t reveal what sort of power it will make in either guise in Europe. Previously, the automaker did note that the Dark Horse was targeted to deliver 500 horsepower, however.
Meanwhile, the European Mustang GT comes standard with the Performance Package, meaning that buyers will get a pretty loaded example, regardless of what they opt for. Otherwise, the European version of the new 2024 Ford Mustang is essentially identical to its American counterpart, sporting revised exterior styling and a new interior with an abundance of tech, such as the fully digital instrument panel and central screen running Unreal Engine gaming software.
“New Mustang is everything that our customers expect from an undisputed automotive icon – and then some,” said Jon Williams, general manager, Ford Blue, Europe. “Surprising, connected technology really complements and elevates performance enhancements that will win the hearts of a whole new generation of drivers.”
