It’s official: The 2024 Ford Mustang is coming. The iconic muscle car surges into the future with modern lines, innovative tech, and fresh metals. But what about horsepower? Enthusiasts are hungry for a potent V8. And others want an electrified alternative. The solution to both could’ve been a Mustang hybrid. But Ford killed those plans, citing a new roadmap for satisfying consumer demand through the legendary Mustang.

Introducing the new 2024 Ford Mustang

To reimagine the classic pony car and attract the next generation of buyers, the 2024 Ford Mustang has evolved into a new beast. The Mustang’s basic physique is still recognizable. But there’s also fresh metal, including a more chiseled look, a more aggressive front fascia, and a blunter-looking grille.

Ford shares new features, too, including Remote Rev, allowing drivers to rev the car’s engine remotely using the fob. There’s also an available electric drift brake for — you guessed it — effortless drifting techniques.

The redesigned 2024 Ford Mustang still has pony DNA but boasts more modern amenities. Expect new screens and a fresh dashboard layout, including a 12.4-inch customizable instrument cluster display next to a 13.2-inch touchscreen. Climate controls are now integrated into the screen features — all part of Ford’s Sync 4 infotainment platform.

Ford killed the hybrid Mustang

In 2017, Ford announced its plans to introduce hybrid variants, including a hybrid Mustang. However, it never came to pass. And now, the Blue Oval has officially nixed a Mustang hybrid. Considering how long the Mustang hybrid has been reportedly in the works, it’s a bit of a surprise to hear that Ford has abandoned the idea. But skipping the hybrid and moving straight to full electrification also makes sense.

For now, enthusiasts can enjoy incredibly athletic powertrains in the 2024 Ford Mustang. We expect more details to emerge in the coming weeks. But we know the turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder EcoBoost and 5.0-liter Coyote V8 engines are back. The Coyote adds a dual air intake and a dual-throttle body design, making it arguably the most powerful naturally aspirated V8 engine in a Mustang GT.

In addition, the 2024 Ford Mustang will offer two transmission options. Buyers get a choice between a 10-speed automatic and a consumer-favorite six-speed manual with standard rev-matching. All EcoBoost models will be automatic, while the beefy GT models will offer both transmissions.

Ford’s plan for an all-electric lineup

There’s no question the Ford Mustang Mach-E — the fully electric nod to the quintessential pony car — has been a hit. And it might be one of the reasons why Ford opted to kill the hybrid and run with all-electric platforms for the Mustang.

The auto giant will transition from hybrid designs to an all-electric lineup soon. According to Green Car Reports, the Mach-E platform will serve as a blueprint. Fans can expect these replacement designs in a 2028 or 2029 model, phasing out any remaining internal combustion engine Mustang models.

For now, Ford intends to re-engineer the Mach-E and triple its output. The process will be incremental, meaning gas-powered enthusiasts can still enjoy roaring engines for a few years. But several years from now, expect all-electric Mustangs.

The recent 2024 Ford Mustang reveal marks an exciting time for fans hungry for a new rendition of their favorite pony car. And in the next few years, it might be the last of its kind as the Blue Oval rolls toward full electrification.
