Ford CEO Jim Farley took to Twitter on Wednesday to confirm the debut redesigned Ford Mustang September 14.

The debut will take place on a updated car dealership in detroit which will be more like a festival than a traditional car show. Sales should begin in 2023, meaning we’ll likely see the car as a 2024 model.

Called the S650 domestically (the current car is the S550), the new Mustang is the seventh generation of the nameplate, and prototypes have been spotted for over a year, in Ecoboost and GT face, as well as Art convertible body style.

The prototypes hint at an evolutionary design, indicating that the new Mustang rides on an updated version of the current car’s dedicated D2C platform. At one point, it was rumored that Ford planned to use a version of the modular CD6 platform that debuted in the last Explorer, which would likely have resulted in an increased size of the Mustang. However, it seems that this is no longer the case.

However, Mustang fans can expect some electrification with the upcoming redesign. The long-awaited hybrid option, which was originally promised to be released around 2020, is expected to be introduced on the new Mustang.

Expect the hybrid powertrain to be found in the performance Halo model. Rumor has it that it will have a traditional V-8 up front that sends drive to the rear wheels, paired with an electric motor (or two) on the front axle. Battery capacity is also expected to be sufficient for a small electric range.

Other powertrain options should include the 2.3-liter inline-4 and 5.0-liter turbocharged V-8 from the current car, possibly with tweaks to improve performance or fuel efficiency, or both. The 6-speed manual transmission is expected to continue along with the 10-speed automatic.

The Mustang redesign may not happen as quickly as US sales decreased to 52,414 units in 2021, down 14.2% from the previous year and the lowest level in the brand’s history. However, this was also partly due to disruptions and the fact that some buyers likely switched to the Mustang Mach-E.
