2024 Ford Mustang To Be Unveiled At Detroit Auto Show17
While GM is expected to abandon the pony car segment once production of the current sixth-generation Chevy Camaro concludes in 2023, its crosstown rivals over at Ford Motor Company are powering forward with the next-generation Mustang. The 2024 Ford Mustang is set to make its official debut later this year, as our sister site Ford Authority reported this week, ushering in the seventh generation of the iconic nameplate.
The next-generation S650 Ford Mustang will celebrate its official debut at the 2022 Detroit Auto Show, which will kick off at the Huntington Place Convention Center in the city’s downtown core on September 14th. Rumors indicate the seventh-gen ‘Stang will move to an all-new platform derived from Ford’s CD6 rear-wheel-drive architecture and will have a very similar design language to the current model. It will also stick with the same engine options for entry-level and GT variants, which include Ford’s 2.3L I-4 EcoBoost and 5.0L V8 Coyote motors, although Ford Authority notes that hybrid versions of both power plants remain a possibility for future model years.
Spy shots from Ford Authority show the 2024 Ford Mustang will adopt a heavily overhauled cabin with a flat-bottom steering wheel, a new digital instrument cluster design, and a larger infotainment screen. The S650 Mustang will continue to be built at the Ford Flat Rock Assembly Plant and is expected to have an eight-year life cycle, with production concluding sometime around 2032.
Over at GM, meanwhile, the automaker is rumored to have a farewell special edition Chevy Camaro in the works, which will bow sometime in 2023 as a 2024 model-year product. The automaker could potentially one day offer an electrified sports sedan that would indirectly replace the Camaro, however this is only speculation and has not yet been confirmed by the company.
GM Authority will have complete details on the 2024 Ford Mustang following its rumored debut at this year’s Detroit Auto Show. In the meantime, be sure to subscribe to GM Authority for more GM-related Ford news, Chevy Camaro news, Chevy news, and around-the-clock GM news coverage.

I’m excited about this new Mustang. I hope it looks good and a V8 with elec assist combining for awd would be amazing.
Yup I’m excited too. 6th gen Mustangs were known to be numb in the steering and boaty in handling, compared to the 6th gen Camaros. I wonder if Ford has upgraded the 7th gen Mustang’s handling/steering/weight.
Sad times when the only 2024 Pony car we can discuss on GMA is a FORD…
If the New E-Camaro is a 4 door I will possibly shop Ford for the first time in 30 years. That should be the new Malibu or Impala IMO.
The 2014 Camaro SS in the Garage was supposed to become the 2024 Camaro Graduation gift for my son. It may just become the first Ford he has ever been in…
OR, now hear me out here…your son can buy his own first car in the brand of his choosing?
Just me thinking out loud, more power to you either way. Just trying to guide you through such a dire dilemma.
He drives a nice car already. This is a GIFT.
You obviously don’t understand the concept.
Lighten up dude, I obviously do understand the concept.
It’s called highlighting the classic “first world problems” scenario, I know what a gift is.
Levity is sorely lacking in society today. This is why.
I have never been in a Ford either, not one that I wanted to own myself anyway. GM just makes better products and you get what you pay for. The ford fanboys are always over on GMA trying to save face, you’re on the wrong website guys/gals.
wow… you’re giving your son a 2014 Camaro SS as a graduation gift??? Lucky boy.
My parents had the resources, but they didn’t give me squat. My first car, I had to BUY my parents old beat up Toyota Camry for $5000. Then years later after graduating and working full time I had to buy my first “new” car as a 2.0T Camaro.
Sad times indeed. It’s mind blowing what we have lost as far as choices in the automotive world. Looks like my future pony car will be a Ford in a convertible.
Sad to see the Camaro leave again. I guess I will need to work 2 jobs and get the Corvette!
yea, I’m sad to see the Camaro gone. Because it’s the best handling pony car on the market.
The problem with Corvette vs Camaro is the Corvette is a summer/weekend car. The Camaro can be used as a daily driver. I cannot imagine anyone daily driving a mid engine Corvette as their only car, but you certainly can use a Camaro as your only car.
The Corvette can be used as a daily driver as well. Why couldn’t you imagine someone daily driving a mid-engine Corvette as their daily driver? The Corvette even has a better ride quality than the Camaro which makes it more comfortable as a daily driver.
Ford needs the Mustang because they have nothing else to offer. Chevrolet has the new Corvette C8 so the need for a ICE pony car isn’t as dire.
How many people do you know owns a mid engine sports car as their only car, that daily drives it in snow/rain? I don’t know any. But how many people you know owns a Camaro or Mustang as their only car? A lot of people.
I never see Corvettes in the winter with snow/ice. But I see Camaros and Mustangs in the winter everywhere.
Damn…. GM is not making a 7th gen Camaro???
I guess I’ll just be riding my ’19 Camaro into the ground until the wheels fall off. Then I’ll be forced to buy a Mustang, as I have no other option.
I’m okay with 4 cylinder turbo, I’m okay with hybrid, but I do not want a BEV. BEV’s are only convenient for people who own their own house that have their own garage charger. The thought of them turning the Camaro into a BEV 4door sedan scares me. Keep it 2 door coupe, keep it RWD, please….. GM is literally forcing me to buy a Mustang, but I don’t want a Mustang, I want a Camaro.
Hopefully Marry Barra change her mind and decide to go with development for the 7th Gen Camaro.
I genuinely had no clue people were actually excited about this project. I’m so bored with Ford’s Raptor and now Raptor R that they’re trying to sell and a new Mustang isn’t really inspiring any excitement either. It’s a given they’re going to try to at least match the quality and level of technology found in vehicles like the new Corvette but everyone knows it won’t be better in any way. I suppose I’m just completely uninterested in any Ford, I’d love to hear more about the new flagship sedan of Cadillac, the Celestiq.
I’ll spoil it for everyone.
It will,be a 2 door with a rather high center of gravity for a coupe with a forward leaning front fascia with a horse emblem in the grill .The horse is facing backwards which is itonic since so are the designers.
