The next-generation Mustang will continue to deliver V-8 engines, according to a report from Australia.
The 2024 Ford Mustang will be unveiled next year, according to a report by Australian website Wheels/which Car.
The publication, citing Ford’s Ali Jammoul, said the next-generation Mustang will still be powered by the V-8 engine.
The spy photos seen here show a soft convertible with some high-performance parts.
The spy photos of this well-disguised Ford Mustang prototype not only introduce the next generation, but there are also rumors that the popular carriage will launch next year. It will also continue to be offered with the V-8. Those two details were recently confirmed by U.S.-based Ali Jammoul, ford’s vehicle program manager, Icons and Ford Performance, in an article in Aussie’s Wheels magazine.
While reportedly visiting the continent as part of the “final subscriber” on the new Ranger Raptor, Jammoul answered some questions about the next-generation Mustang. His comments include confirmation that the car will launch in 2023 and that it will have a V-8 engine. Jammoul is also said to have said that Ford is “definitely considering” an electrified version of the Mustang.
The Australian store also hinted that the next-generation Mustang would not be offered a manual gearbox, which would surely excite carriageists. However, based on our interpretation of Jammoul’s comments, it seems that the stick-shift option will eventually disappear rather than be removed immediately. “You know, eventually it’s going to get rid of it, isn’t it?” Jammoul told Wheels. “But as long as there’s a market for it and the customer still wants a higher sense of performance, it’s going to stay…”
Aside from this recent report, we’ve heard little about the upcoming seventh-generation Stang. Images of the heavily camouflaged prototypes have been circulating on the internet since mid-January. All of them are no different from our spy scenes; however, our photographer said these latest images appear to be a convertible with a soft hood. Judging by the design of the wheels and the brake setup, this test mule is probably a high-performance model. It also has the sound of Ford’s four-cylinder EcoBoost instead of the distinctive growl of the brand’s 5.0-liter V-8 engine.
