Well, now Ford is back talking about the regular, street-legal models. But unfortunately, they are not giving us the great news of first deliveries – as they only wanted to talk about "how customers are personalizing their all-new 2024 Ford Mustang vehicle." Basically, the company wanted to attract our attention because it is finally "launching the full Build & Price website for 2024 Mustang, giving customers the chance to configure their Mustang the way they want and see it, too."
That means we all have access to the seventh-generation lineup, starting with the 2024 Mustang EcoBoost Fastback that kicks off at $30,920, followed by the EcoBoost Premium Fastback at $36,445, the EcoBoost Convertible at $39,020, EcoBoost Premium Convertible at $41,945, Mustang GT Fastback at $42,495, GT Premium Fastback at $47,015, GT Premium Convertible at $52,515, and the Dark Horse or Dark Horse Premium at $59,270 and $63,265, respectively. Yep, they're pricey – and that's what happens when inflation strikes and GM plus Stellantis abandon the Chevy Camaro and Dodge Challenger plus Charger ICE-powered cases, unfortunately.
Anyway, according to Ford, initial customers that are eagerly waiting for their 2024 Mustang delivery (still pegged for a summer release – it's probably going to be August 31) are loving the new electronic drift brake feature available with the High Performance Package (50% more EcoBoost customers compared to the previous three years), but few of them will go home with a stick shift – just 27% of GT or Dark Horse buyers opt for the six-speed manual transmission. Of the available packages, 22% of Mustang GT owners also add the Performance Package, while around 26% go for the Nite Pony pack.
Last but not least, the mix between paint choices is also interesting: EcoBoost and GT buyers want Shadow Black (17%), Oxford White (13%), and Rapid Red (11%), while Dark Horse customers love the optional Blue Ember (39%) followed by Vapor Blue (18%) and Shadow Black (16%). So, what's your favorite build if you also plan on getting an S650 Mustang?
