For the past 59 years Ford Mustang has been used and the standard bearer for the Automotive performance world. The new "S650" doesn't change the pedigree of the Mustang whatsoever, this time Ford is taking the Pony Car to new limits for all others to follow.
The base 2.3L turbocharged four-cylinder engine is entirely new, while the 5.0L V8 gets a couple of major upgrades, including dual throttle bodies coupled with twin air intakes so you know what that potentially means... dual MAF. Both engines can be expected to generate more power than the current models.
A six-speed manual and 10-speed automatic transmission will be available. Thankfully for the manual lovers, the feel of a straight drive Mustang has not gone, Ford listened, and we've applauded!
The Mustang will offer Multiple options of wheels to include 17-, 18- and 19-inch wheels. Brembo performance brakes will be available be available to help stop the 500 brake horsepower, an increase from the Gen6.
The 2024 Mustang's new steering system has a faster ratio, new rack and stiffer connections, including the cross-car beam to improve feel.
The active exhaust system matches driving modes and can be used for quiet “stealth” starts in the morning so you're not waking up the neighbors or remote-revving when you’re not in the car, depending on how you feel about your neighbors that day.
A flat-bottomed steering wheel is standard. It will have a number of satellite controls, including the ability to select among five drive modes.
The drifting-style hand-pull emergency brake’s design was overseen by race driver Vaughn Gittin. While it looks like an old-fashioned mechanical actuator, the brake is electronic, applying full power as soon as its pulled to provide extra control in turns and while drifting. There are two drifting modes, available only in track mode.
The interior also will feature a couple of intriguing new materials. Plastics made with laser-etched tools make the optional B&O sound system’s speakers almost invisible and create appealing new patterns. There’s also a new fabric for the standard cloth seats. A good-looking ungrained vinyl and natural leather also will be available.
Electronic Drift Brake
One of the coolest announcements during the event was the addition of an electronic drift brake. Co-developed with Vaughn Gittin Jr., Ford claims the new "EDB" can turn any novice into a drifting pro shredding tires.
It differs from a traditional handbrake in that it doesn't stay up once you engage it. Instead, it bounces back down as soon as you let go, similar to a hydraulic handbrake in a drift car. Ford also said there will be two settings for the EDB: one for novices and another for pros.
