Ford Introduces Updated 2024 Mustang at Detroit Auto Show

The iconic Mustang is carrying the torch for the pony car segment in the age of electric vehicles! On Wednesday, Ford introduced the 2024 Mustang at the Detroit auto show, and wow, it is loaded with features. From a revised look, two gas engines – including a V-8 with up to 500 hp – to a tech-laden interior and two cool new features, Remote Rev and an Electronic Drift Brake, the Mustang is sure to attract a new generation of connected buyers.

The Mustang is staying with the same platform, and power and fuel economy figures have yet to be announced, but the current 2.3-liter makes 310 hp or 330 hp and gets up to 25 mpg combined. The 5.0-liter V-8 in the 2022 Mustang makes 450 hp in the GT and 470 hp in the Mach I, and this time around, Ford is targeting up to 500 hp.

The exterior design is an evolution of the throwback look Ford adopted in 2005, and the Mustang will also compete across the spectrum with NASCAR, GT3, and GT4 classes and at the 24 Hours of Daytona and the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The interior gets a big injection of technology with a 12.4-inch screen for the digital instrument cluster and a 13.2-inch infotainment touchscreen and Ford's Sync 4 infotainment interface. Configurable with five themes, the interior also gets a thicker, flat-bottom steering wheel, soft-touch surfaces and contrast stitching, and a new Carmine Red interior color.

The Mustang will also have three upgraded brake options, with the top version featuring 6-piston front calipers, 15.4-inch rotors, and 4-piston rear calipers with 14.0-inch rear rotors, all by Brembo and available in three colors.

Owners will have access to two new cool gadgets – the Electronic Drift Brake and Remote Rev. The former lets drivers control the parking brake like a pro drifter, and the latter lets owners not only start the car remotely but also use the key fob to rev the engine and hear its fury.

So if you're looking for a car that's loaded with features and has everything you need in a car, the 2024 Mustang is definitely worth the wait!
