Australian 2024 Ford Mustang Launch Pushed Back Again

As Ford Authority reported a little over a year ago, the all-new 2024 Ford Mustang was originally set to join FoMoCo’s Aussie lineup in 2023, and in fact, was expected to arrive there a bit earlier than expected – in Q3 of that year, rather than Q4. However, in May, the Australian 2024 Ford Mustang launch was pushed back to Q1 of 2024, which the automaker blamed on the “significant shipping time between the plant in Flat Rock, Michigan and Australia.” Now, the 2024 Ford Mustang launch in Australia has been delayed yet again, according to CarExpert.

Now, the S650 Mustang is slated to launch in Australia in the second half of 2024, which will come roughly two years after its debut and 15 months after the new pony car began competing in the Supercars Championship there as well. Order banks also opened up back in October 2023, though Aussie customers reportedly won’t be able to purchase the factory matte film that just debuted for the American market earlier this week.

Pricing for the 2024 Ford Mustang in Australia starts out at $64,990 AUS ($41,034 USD) minus on-road costs for the base EcoBoost model, which is a whopping $12,400 ($7,829 USD) more than the S550 equivalent. From there, the GT Fastback costs $77,002 ($48,619 USD) with the six-speed manual transmission or $80,902 ($51,081 USD) for the 10-speed automatic, the GT convertible starts at $86,752 ($54,775 USD), and the range-topping the Dark Horse starts out at $99,102 ($62,573 USD) for the manual or $103,002 ($65,035 USD) for the automatic – making the latter model the very first Mustang sold in Australia with a six-figure price tag.

However, Ford only plans to ship 1,000 2024 Mustang Dark Horse models to Australia in total, which will make it a rather rare sight in that country – albeit, also a rather expensive one, to boot.
