Ford Mustang Production Decreased In March 2024

The changeover from the S550 generation to the new S650 model has had quite an impact on Ford Mustang production over the past several months, as if often the case. After routine quality checks turned up a few issues with the redesigned pony car, FoMoCo ironed things out and deliveries began shortly afterward. Production of the 2024 Ford Mustang subsequently began to ramp up at the Flat Rock Assembly plant in the month of July, reaching 4,349 units, though things did taper off toward the end of the year before increasing in December and declining in January. According to Ford’s Q1 2024 report, that up and down trend in March 2024, too.

Ford Mustang production at Flat Rock declined to 5,926 units in January, a decrease of around 9.6 percent, or 627 units versus December, though in February, things bounced back somewhat as Mustang production increased to 6,775 units, which was 14.3 percent or 849 units more than the first month of the year. However, that upward trend didn’t last long, as Ford Mustang production dipped ever so slightly in March – by a mere 438 units – or around 6.5 percent – to 6,337 units.

Regardless, the 2024 Ford Mustang is all-new in many ways, ranging from its sheetmetal to updated suspension and powertrains, coupled with a high-tech interior with a flat-bottom steering wheel, a 12.4-inch digital instrument cluster, and a new Sync 4 powered 13.2-inch infotainment screen.

Customers can choose from the base 2.3L I-4 EcoBoost or the 5.0L V8 Coyote engines, the latter of which represents the fourth-generation version of that particular powerplant. Additionally, the 2024 Ford Mustang lineup added a brand new, range-topping variant dubbed the Dark Horse, which has since served as the basis for a massive motorsports push across multiple series.

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.
