The upcoming 2024 Ford Mustang Mach1 is getting further upgrades. This version has been spied recently, although some elements are still a mystery. The Mach1 is a performance-oriented model, or package. It firstly appeared in late 60s and it lasted for almost two decades. Blue Oval returned the Mach1 package at the beginning of 2000s and most recently in 2021.
Unlike the regular of the GT models, the Mach1 adds more ponies and it also provides a couple of upgrades under the skin. The result is an impressive sports car with so much to offer. The seventh-gen Mustang is on the way, so we expect drastic upgrades in terms of styling and interior design. Moreover, new model will most likely ride on the updated platform that is currently available.
Ford Mustang Mach1 Spy Photos
For a start, we don’t know if the spied prototype is the GT500 or Mach1 variant. However, it seems like it is the 2024 Ford Mustang Mach1, as it comes with the same wheels and tires. Furthermore, we spotted unique hood design, larger air intakes and larger spoiler. The high-performance tires are also present, so everything indicated that we are dealing with the Mach1 model.
On the other hand, there are new multi-spoke wheels with a brand-new design. Generally, the styling is more aggressive, especially the rear section with new taillights. The prototype wears dual exhaust system with quad tips, which comes as no surprise.
The interior of the 2024 Ford Mustang Mach1 will gain lots of upgrades. However, spy shots didn’t provide any of the interior details. The Mach1 model has a couple of distinctive features. Unlike the base model, it comes with the cue-ball shifter, unique sill plates and instrument cluster. Generally, the cabin is made of high-quality materials with standard Ebony cloth upholstery.
Most of the features are available as standard. On the other hand, Mustang Mach1 comes with numerous optional features and packages. You can also remove the rear seats if you need to. The Handling Package is a must in our opinion. We are waiting to see new interior, but 2024MY will surely include more features, and more upscale materials.
No More Manual Transmission
The Mustang model comes with a standard 2.3-liter turbo-four engine with 310 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. On the other hand, the 2024 Ford Mustang Mach1 comes with a larger 5.0-liter V8 Coyote engine. This unit is capable of producing 470 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque. Right now, a 10-speed automatic transmission comes as an option.
However, the most recent rumors are saying the manual transmission will not be in use anymore. Of course, meeting emission standards is hard, especially for sports cars such as Mustang. Therefore, hybrid or even all-electric models are what we should expect in the future. Unlike the regular Mustang, the Mach1 model offers power steering, stability control and unique suspension tuning.
2024 Ford Mustang Mach1 Price, Release Date
The forthcoming 2024 Ford Mustang Mach1 will cost between $55,000 and $60,000. This model will be shown early next year, with the sales beginning in the summer. This means the Blue Oval carmaker will reveal more details in the coming months.
