The Ford Authority Take

Ford Mustang sales continued their upward trajectory from the previous quarter to start out the year, now commanding half of its small, diminishing market. This is likely due in part to the arrival of the all-new seventh-generation 2024 Ford Mustang, and its two competitors being discontinued.

The Chevy Camaro is no longer in production, while GM President Mark Reuss sees the next-gen Camaro as an EV pony car.

Dodge Challenger production ended as well, with the model to be indirectly replaced by the first-ever 2024 Dodge Charger Daytona.

Of course, Ford already has an EV answer, somewhat, in the form of the Ford Mustang Mach-E. And Ford CEO Jim Farley says a Ford Mustang sedan could happen at some point, reviving previous rumors.

About Ford Mustang

The all-new, seventh-generation all-new 2024 Ford Mustang debuts as more than a simple refresh, redesigned inside and out while offering new tech. The overhauled cabin features a fighter jet-inspired cockpit with a flat-bottom steering wheel, a 12.4-inch digital instrument cluster, and a new Sync 4 powered 13.2-inch infotainment screen, replacing the analog gauges with highly configurable ones.

Performance-wise, the Ford 2.3L I-4 EcoBoost continues to serve as the base engine, with FoMoCo saying it is all-new. That goes for the same is true for the Ford 5.0L V8 Coyote, which is the engine’s fourth-generation, utilizing dual throttle bodies and a dual air intake box to help make it the most powerful naturally-aspirated Coyote-powered Mustang ever.

Also for 2024, the Ford Mustang GT California Special is back, and is joined by the first-ever Ford Mustang Dark Horse. The high-performance pony car harnesses a modified version of the updated Coyote engine, with 500 horsepower chomping at the bit to make it the most track-capable, street-legal 5.0L V8-powered Mustang ever produced. Ford says that the “Mustang Dark Horse is the first new performance name for the brand since Mustang Bullitt was introduced in 2001.”

Both the six-speed manual and 10-speed automatic transmissions will continue to be offered on the S650, which has received a host of additional tweaks. To put that manual gear box through its paces, the Mustang Dark Horse comes with a standard anodized blue titanium shift knob.

For 2024, all coupe models – EcoBoost, GT, and Dark Horse – can now be ordered with a matte clear film for the first time ever on a Mustang, and is compatible with all factory color options.

    Good for Ford, but it won’t be healthy unless the competition returns. The upcoming Charger is so big that I hope Stellantis does what they are rumored to do and come up with a short-wheelbase Challenger. I don’t have much hope about the e-Camaro, especially if they make a four-door and/or a crossover from it.

    Dodge and GM are going to electrify their sports cars straight to the bankruptcy court….again.
