Just seen an update on ford media site. Better details for the interior and 2 options for hood stripes.

Press Release:

TITANIUM AND TEXTURES: UNIQUE COLORS, ADVANCED INTERIOR MATERIALS ADD TO MUSTANG DARK HORSE’S MENACING STYLE

FEB 8, 2023 | DEARBORN

  • All-new seventh-generation Mustang Dark Horse™, the pinnacle of 5.0-liter V8 performance, fuses premium materials, colors, patterns and finishes to reinforce its aggressive track-focused look and style
  • Signature appointments make the Mustang Dark Horse driver-centric cockpit exude even more craftsmanship, quality, plus an exclusive athletic precision appearance
  • Exclusive to Dark Horse’s sinister style, cooler shades of blue are appointed throughout, featuring Indigo Blue interior accents, a signature anodized blue titanium shift ball with the manual transmission and available Blue Ember metallic paint
DEARBORN, Mich., Feb. 8, 2023 – Amplifying the track handling precision of the all-new 2024 Mustang Dark Horse™, the Mustang team has created a distinctive collection of colors and materials that amplifies its dark aura and digital-age style.

“The sinister and track-hungry attitude of Mustang Dark Horse inspired us to curate colors and materials in a way that underscores the vehicle’s athleticism,” said Carrie Kennerly, Ford senior color and materials designer. “We spent extra time on the cockpit, ensuring the look, feel and function of everything a performance driver could want conveys the performance Mustang Dark Horse is capable of.”

Interior designed with athleticism

The heart of the Mustang Dark Horse interior is its all-new anodized blue, lightweight titanium manual shift knob. The lightweight six-speed knob is hollow and does not get as hot to the touch as similar aluminum knobs in warmer weather. For customers who chose the 10-speed SelectShift ® automatic transmission, anodized silver paddle shifters provide almost-instantaneous gear shifts with the tactile feeling of metal.

Mustang Dark Horse features a flat-bottomed steering wheel uniquely wrapped in performance suede for added grip, while contrasting Bright Indigo Blue stitching adds detail across the instrument and door panels, seats, gear shift boot and center console trim and lid. The sport-contoured steering wheel enhances the digital experience with buttons that control vehicle functions like drive mode selection, the instrument cluster and 13.2-inch SYNC® 4 center stack, which is elegantly angled toward the driver behind a single piece of integrated glass.

The available and class-first electronic drift brake* is leather-wrapped and features an anodized lever with precise action to help the driver easily modulate the rear wheels to a full lock while in track mode for sideways movement.

For customers who want an even more sporty look, the Mustang Dark Horse Appearance Package includes specially bolstered RECARO® performance seats featuring exclusive Deep Indigo Blue bolsters trimmed with Bright Indigo Blue accent stitching, plus black Dinamica suede in the seat’s center for improved lateral grip. Deep Indigo Blue seatbelts and distinctive seat perforations with blue accents beneath the seating surface round out the blue theme.

The design team also developed all-new color and trim surface selections, with the bezels and vents finished in Black Alley – a dark metallic gloss replacing the familiar bright silver shades found in other Mustang trim levels.

Enhancing Mustang Dark Horse’s contemporary aesthetic, interior textures have evolved from aggressive animal skin patterns to tech-inspired “white noise” and carbon fiber-inspired grains. To convey a more technical feel and reduce the amount of gloss, lasers are used to create the grain on top of the instrument panel. A carbon fiber grain wraps the front of the instrument and door panel trims and is tied to the look of the three-spoke steering wheel. All leather and vinyl-wrapped parts feature a luxury grain texture that highlights their form and amplifies the vehicle’s performance feel.

As a final touch, each Mustang Dark Horse features an instrument panel badge that includes the vehicle’s chassis number.

All-new color-shifting Blue Ember

From the outset, the Mustang design team knew Dark Horse needed a signature paint color to reinforce its name – something shadowy and sinister, but complex enough to force a double take on the street. The result was Blue Ember metallic paint, a shade that features special effect pigments of deep blues infused with a warm amber hue to give this exterior paint a highly dramatic color shift in different lights and angles.

“If color is a reflection of a vehicle’s personality, Blue Ember transforms the Mustang Dark Horse and highlights a natural saddle-color horse hidden inside the strong chiseled fastback’s exterior form,” said Kennerly. “Multiple elements are combined to give Blue Ember its intriguing and stealthy appearance that really drives home how unique Mustang Dark Horse is.”

To develop Blue Ember, the Ford Color Mastering team intermixed complementary colors, or harmonious colors, that are opposite to each other on the color wheel. Special effect pigments are used in a higher volume than other paints to enhance the color by reflecting light to create a striking amber highlight that looks different throughout the day.

Two exclusive stripe options add to the sinister look

Underscoring the shadowy, muscular physique of the Mustang Dark Horse, available vinyl and hand-painted graphics create a cohesive visual language throughout the vehicle and artfully accentuate its performance.

The vinyl graphics accentuate the raised center of the hood and the low gloss Tarnished Dark and gloss black finish matches Dark Horse-specific parts on the vehicle. The Appearance Package gets a specialized hood vinyl graphic that builds on the base Dark Horse graphic but visually ties into the black-painted roof. In addition, a third vinyl accent color of low gloss black gives the Dark Horse an even more threatening look.

Premium-painted stripe graphics are the Mustang team’s expression of the ultimate Dark Horse. Inspired by airflow over the vehicle, the painted stripes carry the gloss black finish from the center of the grille through the hood extractor, over the roof and to the rear spoiler. Tarnished Dark elements frame the center black stripe, adding to the visual aggression of the Dark Horse. The graphics are painted by hand, in a specialized process, different from any other Mustang trim level.

The all-new 2024 Mustang Dark Horse goes on sale in the U.S. starting in the summer of 2023 and is assembled at Flat Rock Assembly Plant in Flat Rock, Mich.**

Although not a fan of the new body style (mostly front end), I do like all the other new goodies. I like the new paint schemes, but did they improve chipping that is common on leading edge of hood. The new interior has finally caught up and not dated.

Not sure why the write says appearance package has Recaros while it's a separate charge for them. Maybe you can get them without appearance package.

What I want to know is if I can only get the striples on Blue Ember....because I think they would look amazing on Carbonized Grey or Race Red.

I have never seen stripes limited to a certain ext. color. I would guess yes.

Same. I won't lie, I like how they both look. But I love how the Vinyl has that extra space to see the color. It makes it "pop" for the hood to me.

Funny the only thing that they mention as lightweight is the shift knob, the only thing where a weighted(heavier) one is actually preferred in most cases 😜🤣

The DH is badass!
