Ford Mustang Production Decreased In April 2024

Following the changeover from the S550 generation to the new S650 model last year, Ford Mustang production has experienced its fair share of ups and downs. This was especially true after routine quality checks turned up a few issues with the redesigned pony car, but 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 ensuring months before declining in January, increasing in February, and once again dipping in March. According to Ford’s April 2024 sales report, Ford Mustang production followed that up by decreasing yet again last month, too.

Ford Mustang production at Flat Rock decreased by around 9.6 percent to 5,926 units in January, and in February, bounced back somewhat by increasing 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. That figure dropped even further in April – by 915 units or a little over 14 percent, closing out the month at 5,422 units.

Meanwhile, 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.

    Stop making that fake EV Mustang and build more real ones. Americans have stated loud and clear that we will never buy EVs.

    Spell check…ensuing, instead of ensuring….

    All new…in many ways? Is it, or isn’t it? I don’t think that it is all new…same S550 platform, with updates.

    I am not sure there isn’t a bit of demand issue here. The S650 sure checks a lot of boxes and despite what some may think about the price, the car represents a a solid value. My personal nitpick is I don’t think the front end styling matches the rest of the car – lots going on there; busy with lots of angles, dividers and black plastic that looks a bit cheap and not all that integral with the rest of a really uniquely styled car. The ecoboost front end is actually nicer IMO.

    S650 platform is not profitable as much as it should be. Utilize the platform for a Lincoln LS v8, Continental v8 and mark 9 v8
