Foaling Around: Ford Prices 2024 Mustang

Blue Oval bean counters have saddled the new-for-’24 Mustang with pricing details. Good news for pony car fans – the numbers are actually realistic.

Whether or not one thinks the 2024 Mustang has been sufficiently restyled compared to the existing coupe and convertible – Ford didn’t ask our opinion and we’ll reserve judgment until seeing one with our own two eyes – there’s little reason to think there will be a lack of demand for the thing. Chevy is letting its Camaro wither on the vine ahead of eventual cancellation, and Dodge will be scuppering the USS Challenger at the end of this year. Those seeking a traditional(ish) ‘Murican pony car will need to hit up a Ford dealer.

How much cheddar will they need? The sum of $32,515 (incl. $1,595 destination) is going to grant access to a base trim EcoBoost Fastback, equipped with a 2.3L turbo mill good for 315 horses and 350 lb-ft of torque. That’s fine, but keep in mind the entry-level ‘Stang will make do with a weirdo twin-iPad dash design and be bereft of a manual transmission at that price. Hey, rental counters in southern Florida won’t be able to keep them in stock. Elsewhere with a four-banger, a Premium Fastback and Premium Convertible will be $38,040 and $43,540 respectively. These trims bring a better interior and other gear like better illumination.

Of more interest to us are the V8-equipped trims. They will set an opening bid of $43,090 for a GT Fastback with three pedals, an amount that is not out of touch with reality. Upgrading to the Premium Fastback will ding yer bank account for $47,610 (add $5,500 to chop its top off). These are the models which will be equipped with a 480 horsepower octopot. Yet to be determined is the inevitable list of optional equipment; here’s hoping there will be goodies like snarlier exhaust systems and beefy brakes. We do know there will be a ‘Performance Pack’ which will include the electronic drift brake. Crowds at car meets better be on their toes.

The much-touted Dark Horse, which gets a power bump to 500 ponies, will bear an MSRP of $59,565. This is slightly more than the Mach 1 on sale today. With that trim vanishing, at least for the time being, perhaps we can call it the Mach None. This is a non-trivial amount for a Mustang which doesn’t bear a Shelby badge, but it’s worth saying the Dark Horse gets a stouter Tremec, different suspenders, and a raft of engine changes to make those 20 extra horses.

Ford expects to unbridle the 2024 Mustang this summer. It’ll be assembled at the plant in Flat Rock.

    "They will set an opening bid of $43,090 for a GT Fastback with three pedals, an amount that is not out of touch with reality. "

    So base trim GT (GT itself being an up trim from base) is $43 + dest, but somehow this isn't out of touch with reality?

      No, it is not. Cars are expensive nowadays.

  • Akila Hello Everyone, I found your blog very informative. If you want to know more about [url=
  • Michael Gallagher I agree to a certain extent but I go back to the car SUV transition. People began to buy SUVs because they were supposedly safer because of their larger size when pitted against a regular car. As more SUVs crowded the road that safety advantage began to dwindle as it became more likely to hit an equally sized SUV. Now there is no safety advantage at all.
  • Probert The new EV9 is even bigger - a true monument of a personal transportation device. Not my thing, but credit where credit is due - impressive. The interior is bigger than my house and much nicer with 2 rows of lounge seats and 3rd for the plebes. 0-60 in 4.5 seconds, around 300miles of range, and an e-mpg of 80 (90 for the 2wd). What a world.
  • Ajla "Like showroom" is a lame description but he seems negotiable on the price and at least from what the two pictures show I've dealt with worse. But, I'm not interested in something with the Devil's configuration.
  • Tassos Jong-iL I really like the C-Class, it reminds me of some trips to Russia to visit Dear Friend VladdyPoo.
