After first debuting in September 2022, the first question on the top of mind for so many 2024 Ford Mustang customers is this: when can I order one? Well, that answer is right now. Today, you can build, price and order a new S650 Mustang. You can do so by either visiting the Ford website and tinker with the configurator, or visit your local Ford dealer.
The starting price of the 2024 Ford Mustang is $32,515 USD, which includes the $1,595 destination fee, as will all the other prices for the new Mustang listed here. That MSRP is for the EcoBoost Fastback, the entry level trim. A step up from there is the EcoBoost Premium Fastback, for $38,040 USD. The 2.3L EcoBoost is paired exclusively to a 10-speed automatic transmission, starting with a 3.15 axle ratio. Opt for the $3,475 EcoBoost Performance Package, and that improves to a 3.55 axle ratio.
Then it’s V8 time, with the new 2024 Ford Mustang GT and its fourth-generation Coyote 5.0L V8 engine, with 450 hp and 410 lb-ft in this guise. That starts at $43,090 – the most expensive V8 entry of any Detroit muscle car, but it’s soon going to be the only option in town. Dodge and Chevy are about to leave the party. From there the next step up is – you guessed it – the 2024 Ford Mustang GT Premium Fastback, coming in at $47,610 USD.
The Mustang GT also offers the choice between a six-speed manual or a 10-speed automatic (the EcoBoost is automatic only). Customers can also choose between varying axle ratios. The 10-speed offers either a 3.15 axle ratio, or a 3.55 axle ratio. The six-speed manual also starts with a 3.55 ratio, or a more aggressive 3.73 axle ratio with the optional $4,995 Mustang GT Performance Package.
However, that’s not the top of the mountain just yet.
The range-topping 2024 Ford Mustang is the Dark Horse line. And this 500 hp barnstormer will start at $60,865 USD. And on top of that – the most sophisticated and capable S650 Mustang yet – is the Ford Mustang Dark Horse Premium, from $63,460 USD. Ford warns on its website that both 2024 Mustang Dark Horse trim levels will have “limited availability,” suggesting scarcity out of the gate. It’s expected that the Dark Horse will be more available later this year.
If you go all in, a top-of-the-line 2024 Ford Mustang Dark Horse will run you a Corvette-rivaling $79,515 USD, which includes the $1,595 destination fee. In other words, you can have the fanciest 2024 Mustang with 500 horsepower, or a midrange C8 Corvette Stingray 2LT Z51 with 495 horsepower. Your choice. By the way, the price for a loaded Mustang Dark Horse is also some $2,000 more than the starting price of a 2022 Mustang Shelby GT500, which had 760 hp.
$80-grand will also fetch you a 2023 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Jailbreak (807 hp!), a 2023 Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody (707 hp), and even an optioned Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE (650 hp) – one of the most extreme road course muscle cars ever, and extremely rare. But you’ll likely deal with markups on every one of these American performance machines, so keep that in mind as you shop around.
Some standout options for the 2024 Ford Mustang Dark Horse are:
- Painted racing stripes: $5,495
- Dark Horse Handling Package: $4,500
- Dark Horse Appearance Package: $1,250
- Leather Recaro seats: $1,650
At the time of this writing, the build and price configurator for 2024 Ford Mustang convertible family is not yet up. The carbon fiber wheels for the Dark Horse (pictured above) are also not immediately listed. Be sure to check back to MC&T regularly for updates as the launch of the new Mustang commences.
