2024 Ford Mustang Has an Attitude and a Dash Full of Modern Tech
- The 2024 Ford Mustang rings in the seventh generation with more muscular styli
ng and a tech-centric interior. (The 2023 model year will be carryover.)
- The Mustang still has a 2.3-liter turbo-four and a 5.0-liter V-8 and both engines are ready for the new generation.
- Ford also introduces interesting features that include an electronic drift brake and a way to rev the engine remotely.
The new Stang still offers a V-8 with a manual, but now it also has a digitized dashboard and a drift stick.
Sure, the seventh-gen Mustang’s design is more evolutionary than revolutionary, but its bodywork is entirely new and noticeably edgier than before. The previous creations were designed for a global audience, and the new one definitely preserves its predecessor’s attractive shares, but now it gives off more muscular vibes. Its front end is squarer and said to be inspired by the original Mustang. Yet its new headlights, with their tri-bar LED elements, are a modern touch. Its three-bar taillights remain a signature detail, but they’re more pronounced than ever. The car’s hips are also wider, and the rear overhang is shorter.
Without a doubt, the most dramatic difference between the new Mustang and prior versions is its interior. Gone is the classic “double bubble” dashboard design. Instead, the cockpit now contains a more driver-focused layout. One that’s dominated by digital displays. Most 2024 Mustangs have a massive glass panel that combines a 12.4-inch gauge cluster and a 13.2-inch touchscreen. The standard model has the same size displays, but they’re separated. The new-look interior is a big break from tradition. Even so Ford said it’s intended to appeal to a younger demographic of people who grew up playing video games.
