Ford’s new Mustang sticks with pure gasoline Update

During a presentation in Detroit on Wednesday night, Ford debuted a completely new version of the two-door Mustang coupe. It features a new body style and new engine choices, but electric motors are the one thing it won’t have.

For the time being, the new Mustang will only be available with pure gasoline engine. Customers only need to decide how much gasoline they wish to burn in order to generate how much power.

Just like the current Mustang, the new Mustang will be available with a large 5.0-liter V8 engine or a 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine.

But for the 2024 Mustang model year, these engines have been enhanced to provide greater power and, in the case of the four-cylinder engine, to consume less gasoline.

The amount of additional power has not yet been disclosed, but Ford has assured customers that the V8 will be the most potent “naturally aspirated” (i.e., not turbocharged or supercharged) V8 ever produced in a basic model Mustang GT.

In 2017, Ford revealed intentions to produce a hybrid Mustang. Since then, Ford has released electric hybrids as well as fully electric cars like the Ford Mustang Mach-E SUV and Ford F-150 Lightning Pickup.

According to Ford spokesperson Mike Levine, this meant that the company could reach its emissions reduction goals without building a plug-in hybrid Mustang coupe.

According to Kumar Galhotra, who drives a Ford Blue, the division devoted to internal combustion cars, the fuel-powered Mustang will thus continue to be produced when its rivals discontinue gas-powered coupes like the Dodge Challenger.

The inside is vastly different from the outside, which closely resembles a classic Mustang. Traditional gauges are replaced with a single huge screen that also serves as the central touchscreen. Angled inward toward the driver is the portion of the screen that is not immediately in front of him or her.

The majority of the interior lighting in the automobile, as well as the intricately detailed instruments and graphics on the screen, are extremely programmable.

Ford is evidently pushing past the Baby Boomers who initially purchased the first pony car, appealing to Gen X and Millienials for those want to relive the Mustangs of their childhood. Even a Fox Body Gauge option is available, which displays dials similar to those on 1980s Mustangs.

The vehicle also includes what appears to be a conventional parking brake that is activated by a lever, but in reality, it is an electronic parking brake of the type that is typically activated by a little switch on most other cars. The parking brake lever can be employed in drifting or moving the back wheels sideways depending on the settings.

The Mustang is still the only vehicle Ford offers in the US that is neither a truck or an SUV. The seventh design generation of the Mustang, the new 2024 model, will go on sale in the summer of 2019.
