There are six trims for the 2024 Mustang: EcoBoost, EcoBoost Premium, GT, GT Premium, Dark Horse, and Dark Hose Premium. All trims are rear-wheel-drive and available as a fastback coupe; a convertible version is also offered for the EcoBoost Premium and GT Premium.
Power for the EcoBoost and EcoBoost Premium comes from a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine making 315 horsepower (up from 310 horsepower last year) and 350 lb.-ft. of torque. It’s paired with a ten-speed automatic transmission. The GT and GT Premium get a 5.0-liter Coyote V8 with an output of 480 horsepower (that’s a 30 horsepower increase from 2023) and 415 lb.-ft. of torque. The Dark Horse editions have the same engine, but in their case it’s engineered to produce 500 horsepower and 418 lb.-ft. of torque. The V8 engines get a standard six-speed manual gearbox (the Dark Horse trims upgrade to a six-speed TREMEC transmission). A ten-speed automatic is optional with the V8 engines.
The EcoBoost Mustang’s standard equipment is highlighted by automatic LED headlights, single-zone automatic climate control, a 12.4-inch digital instrument display, cloth upholstery, a drive-mode selector, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and 17-inch aluminum wheels. The EcoBoost Premium adds a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, remote start, a second automatic climate control zone, approach detection lighting, ambient cabin lighting (configurable), heated side mirrors (with integrated turn signals and pony-logo puddle lights), a body-color spoiler, premium interior accents, and 18-inch wheels. Its seats are heated, ventilated, and upholstered in ActiveX material; the driver’s seat is power-adjustable six ways. The GT is equipped similarly to the EcoBoost but with a rear spoiler. Similarly, the GT Premium has features like the EcoBoost Premium, with an upgrade to leather-trimmed seats and a four-way power front passenger seat.
The Dark Horse’s standard equipment mostly aligns with that of the GT Premium, except that the seats are trimmed with a combination of durable vinyl and fabric. The main attraction of the Dark Horse is its roster of performance-oriented upgrades: a MagneRide damping system, Brembo brakes, a Torsen rear differential, unique chassis tuning, modified stability control, an upsized rear sway bar, heavy-duty front springs, and a K-brace. It also gets a split-folding rear seat, an electric hand brake, exclusive exterior treatment, a performance rear wing, front tow hooks, and 19-inch aluminum wheels. The Dark Horse Premium gets heated and ventilated front seats, a driver’s memory system, fabric upholstery, and a performance exhaust system.
Ford Co-Pilot360 comes standard on all 2024 Mustangs. This technology grouping unites forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring, cross-traffic alert with braking, lane-keeping alert, lane-keeping assist, a rearview monitor, and automatic high beams. The Dark Horse and Dark Horse Premium also receive adaptive cruise control.
Infotainment for the 2024 Ford Mustang centers on a 13.2-inch touchscreen with Ford’s SYNC 4 system, voice recognition control, and USB ports. The EcoBoost and GT have a six-speaker audio system, while the EcoBoost Premium and GT Premium get a nine-speaker arrangement with SiriusXM satellite radio. Both of the Dark Horse trims are upgraded with a 12-speaker B&O sound system and navigation. All trims come with smartphone integration and Ford connected services for emergency assistance, vehicle monitoring, and access to a Wi-Fi hotspot.
