A prototype for the seventh-generation Ford Mustang, the S650, has been spotted yet again, and this time we have a clear appear at the interior.

Previously considered to be arriving in late 2022 as a 2023 model, the automobile is now anticipated to arrive midway by means of 2023, which signifies we’ll most likely see it arrive as a 2024 model. Blame provide shortages and other pandemic-relevant disruptions for the delay.

Even though the prototype is heavily camouflaged, we can see that the standard styling will be an evolution of the existing S550 generation’s themes. The profile, the form of the grille, and vertical taillight aspects are all typical to the existing automobile. 1 noticeable big difference is the squinty appear of the headlight aspects, which factors to a sleeker, much more contemporary style up front.

The similarities among the two Mustang generations back up rumors that the redesigned Mustang will be based mostly on the existing car’s bespoke D2C platform, as opposed to a edition of the modular CD6 platform that debuted in the 2020 Ford Explorer and Lincoln Aviator SUVs.

Ford in 2018 announced its long term lineup would migrate to 5 extremely modular platforms, which means there’d be no space for bespoke platforms like the D2C, although now it would seem that Ford will wait till the eighth-generation Mustang, the S650’s successor, to ultimately drop the D2C platform and potentially adopt electrical energy for the muscle automobile. That transition will most likely occur later on this decade.

Mustang followers can appear forward to some electrification with the approaching redesign, nevertheless. The extended-awaited hybrid selection that was initially promised to be launched all around 2020 is anticipated to be launched on the redesigned Mustang. It truly is anticipated to make use of the existing five.-liter V-eight, in mixture with 1 or potentially much more electrical motors.

There are rumors that there could be an electrical motor at every axle to type an all-wheel-drive technique. There is also anticipated to be ample battery capability for a tiny electrical variety. Hopefully excess weight is not an concern since the existing Mustang GT with a guide transmission previously weighs a hefty three,743 lbs.

The existing two.three-liter turbocharged inline-four must stay as the entry-degree powertrain selection.

Seeking within, it seems that the redesigned Mustang will ditch the existing model’s retro dash style in favor of a much more streamlined, much more contemporary style. There is a huge digital instrument cluster and this is linked through a single panel with a 2nd display serving as the infotainment hub. Thankfully it seems to be like there will be a lot of bodily controls existing.

The Mustang’s redesign cannot come quickly ample as U.S. product sales dropped to 52,414 units in 2021, which was down 14.two% on the earlier yr and the lowest degree in the nameplate’s historical past. Nevertheless, that was also partially due to disruptions and some consumers most likely switching to the Mustang Mach-E.
