  • The next-generation Ford Mustang is set to appear next year, and here’s what to expect.
  • This new generation called the S650 will likely have portable engines, but could add a hybrid option.
  • The appearance will most likely not be too different, as seen in our illustration, but the interior is planned to get a significant reduction.

    The glory days of the brightly colored Plum Crazy Challengers, Burnt Orange Camaros and Grabber Green Mustangs that burned on Woodward Avenue are unfortunately numbered. But they are not over yet. While the Chevrolet and Dodge camps are showing signs of slowing down, Dirborn has a buzz in the form of redesigned Mustang 2024. The 60th anniversary of the “Stang” will debut next year, possibly on April 17, the day the original Mustang was worshiped at the 1964 World’s Fair in New York.

    Judging by camouflage mules we’ve seen wandering the streets of southeastern Michigan, we don’t expect the exterior design to stray far from its current look. However, the interior will undergo a major overhaul with a digital dashboard that wraps around a touchscreen driver-oriented infotainment system with added buttons for basic functions.

    It’s no secret that Camaro The Alpha platform is superior to the Mustang platform current S550 chassis. Ford hopes to fix this with a seventh-generation car called the S650. Under the hood expect the 2.3-liter in-line four to produce about 320 horsepower, and we won’t be surprised to see a hybrid option. If the hybrid retains the V-8 with 450 hp, we are more than happy. When a 760-horsepower supercharger with a 5.2-liter V-8 from GT500 survive, we will be delighted. Most likely, a six-speed manual and a 10-speed automatic will return.

    Like the current-generation Mustang, the new S650 should have an eight-year life cycle and expect the package to add performance options year after year. However, these faster ponies may come quickly as 2026 brings tougher corporate requirements to average miles per gallon.

    Although there are a few more months to go, we know one thing: Ford and Multimatic Motorsports will release a Mustang GT3 race car, which is set to debut on the Rolex 24 in Dayton in 2024. Could this generate a Mustang GT3 for the street? Keep an eye on this space.
