VIDEO: Ford Announces Horsepower Ratings for 2024 Mustang — Just in Time for Christmas!

Official Release:


DEARBORN, Mich. – Ford is spreading the holiday cheer this season by giving  Mustang fans exactly what they had on their wish list: more horses across every engine offering  for the all-new, seventh-generation 2024 Mustang, including 500 horsepower with the Mustang  Dark Horse

“Mustang has always pushed the envelope. From Mustang GT to Dark Horse, this is our best  5.0-liter V8 yet. It’s naturally aspirated awesomeness,” said Ed Krenz, Mustang chief engineer.  “And Mustang EcoBoost fans are also getting a boost in power to make every Mustang more  fun and visceral to drive.”

First-ever Mustang Dark Horse delivers 500 horsepower 

For the pinnacle of 5.0-liter V8 performance and track capability, the Mustang Dark Horse  features a uniquely engineered fourth-generation Coyote V8 engine with 500 horsepower and  418 ft.-lb. of torque* to set a new benchmark for Mustang street and track performance, and the  most powerful non-Shelby edition ever.

Powered by Ford Performance know-how, the Coyote engine was upgraded even further to  produce 500 horsepower, delivering its most powerful naturally aspirated V8 yet. These  upgrades include a uniquely balanced crankshaft and forged piston connecting rods – the latter first introduced in the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 – to handle higher cylinder pressures and  piston speeds. Mustang Dark Horse also sports strengthened camshafts for track-durability  needs, including extended operation closer to its 7,500-rpm redline.

“Every time someone gets behind the wheel of a Mustang, we know they want to feel that strong  connection to their vehicle – and we’re just as invested in creating that bond,” said Suzanne  Robinson, Coyote engine program supervisor. “With the increased responsiveness you get from  the new dual throttle bodies, we’re wringing every ounce of performance we can out of our  engine so Mustang enthusiasts can have that experience.”

Most Powerful Mustang GT 5.0-liter V8

At the core of making the all-new Mustang the most exhilarating and visceral Mustang yet is a  new fourth-generation Coyote V8 engine. The available active-valve performance exhaust  system enables the Mustang GT coupe and convertible to deliver 486 horsepower and 418 ft.- lb. of torque**. Beyond the boost in power, the system’s free-flowing design delivers a custom V8 sound with the ability to close the valves to restrict the amount of noise made by the car.

Those opting for the standard Mustang GT still enjoy 480 horsepower* — the most standard  power in a naturally aspirated V8-powered Mustang ever. In addition, the engine delivers 415  ft.-lb. of torque for the most standard torque ever.

The fourth-generation Coyote V8 features a segment-first, dual intake and dual throttle body  induction system that’s matched with structural improvements and upgraded oil pan. This helps  minimize induction loss by enabling higher air flow rates.

Turbocharged Mustang EcoBoost delivers up to 315 horsepower

Continuing a tradition of affordable performance, the all-new 2024 Mustang EcoBoost delivers  on the nameplate’s legacy with its all-new 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine that produces 315  horsepower*, the most standard power in a four- or six-cylinder Mustang ever. In addition, the  engine delivers 350 ft.-lb. of torque.

Mustang EcoBoost also offers the optional active-valve performance exhaust system designed  for even more excitement from its turbocharged-soundtrack.

The Mustang EcoBoost coupe and convertible feature a new engine from the ground up that incorporates Ford’s new Modular Power Cylinder (MPC) engine architecture, driving prowess in  design and function – and is targeted to have improved EPA-estimated fuel economy over the  outgoing model year***. It uses a new Bore to Stroke ratio, Port Fuel injection coupled with  direct injection, variable cam timing, integrated Exhaust Gas Recirculation and Twin Scroll  turbocharging technologies to deliver the performance Mustang drivers expect.

The all-new 2024 Mustang coupe and convertible models go on sale in the U.S. starting in the  summer of 2023 and are assembled at Flat Rock Assembly Plant in Flat Rock, Mich. †

*Horsepower and torque ratings based on premium fuel per SAE J1349® standard. Your results may vary.  Horsepower and torque are independent attributes and may not be achieved simultaneously.
