2024 Ford Mustang Dark Horse
Got an e-mail this morning about Ford Frontline, and I immediately knew i had to report new Mustang info and pictures to you all.

I don't know how much of this is already known, so forgive me if I state something that is known.


S650 Mustang News and S650 Mustang pictures from Ford Frontline (Dealership Training Brochure) chromeponycolor_sm.93a718af8473


---------------------------------
Engines
they describe the new 2.3L EcoBoost I4 as "Developed for the turbo-focused owner, who appreciates the Pony-inspired horsepower and torque available from EcoBoost", and the 5.0 Coyote as "Introducing an innovative dual air intake box and dual-throttle body design, this engine is all about appealing to those who appreciate the impressive output generated from a naturally aspirated, performance V8" and "Also produces a new level of signature rumble"

---------------------------------
Design Customization
in terms of design customization, it seems Ford has abandoned the silver caliper option, as they only list black, red, and grabber blue
the carbon fiber wheels on the Dark Horse have been confirmed to be 19" diameter, but the rest of the wording about them seems like it's wrong, including implying that it comes with the handing package, and that they are 19X9.5" + 19X10" wheels, so that's probably a misprint

---------------------------------
Bronze Appearance Package
the official name for the bronze color used is "Sinister Bronze" and it will only be available on 201A, 400A, and 401A, and there's a note that says "See the latest Order Guide for model details regarding wheel and tire sizes, requirements and restrictions." so maybe we're getting that soon!

---------------------------------
2.3L High Performance Package
despite how little people actually got this package for the S550, it's still gonna be around, and it will increase the horsepower
here's the highlights they list

FUNCTIONAL
3.55 TORSEN® limited-slip rear axle
19-inch x 9-inch Carbonized Gray-painted aluminum wheels
19-inch Brembo™ brake system with performance linings
– Black-painted with white logo calipers

EXTERIOR

Front tow hook access
Raised wedge decklid spoiler (body-color/fastback only)

INTERIOR
Leather-wrapped steering wheel
– 4-piece with chrome bezel (200A)
Paddle shifters

---------------------------------
GT Performance Package
obviously, this one is sticking around too, and here's the highlights they list

FUNCTIONAL
TORSEN differential (3.73:1 axle ratio [manual]/3.55:1 axle ratio [automatic])
19-inch x 9-inch front/19-inch x 9.5-inch rear Carbonized Gray-painted aluminum wheels
19-inch Brembo brake system with performance linings

Heavy-duty front springs
Package-specific tuning

Upsized rear sway bar
Available MagneRide Damping System, now with Pothole Detection (requires GT Premium, 400A or 401A)

EXTERIOR
Ebony Black-painted grille

Performance rear wing (body-color/fastback only)

---------------------------------
Driver Assistance
all the new mustangs, including the Dark Horse, will also get all these new driver assistance items

Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go, Lane Centering and Speed Sign Recognition
Evasive Steering Assist
Reverse Brake Assist
Rear Cross Traffic Braking

sadly, no mention of BlueCruise

---------------------------------
Dark Horse
unfortunately, there's not much new Dark Horse news, the only mildly interesting thing is that it will have a lightweight radiator and interior trim in Black Alley instead of chrome, the rest of the wording is a bit confusing and is stuff we already know

---------------------------------
Pictures
that's it for the new info, here are all the new pictures i could find, the rest were re-used ones from the ford media site

Took me a minute to find (used to random paper copies) - seems like the gates are lifting slowly. I'd guess an order guide might be available in January after all, hopefully before my '23 gets delivered (my main concern is price for the S650...and no Eruption Green). Some other random dumb tid bits:
-Dark Horse gets an exclusive titanium shift ball (lol) and Black Alley interior finish
-Carbon fiber wheels by Carbon Revolution are confirmed-confirmed (19x9.5 FT 19x10 RR)
-Dark Horse also gets lightweight radiator and high flow cooling fans, uses GT500 rods
-S650's dash support structure screen frame on premiums/DH is magnesium...
-S650 design appears to be focused on a Cougar (or what I think is a Cougar - can't grab the image) with it's mouth open - in attack mode?

Not a fan of reverse brake assist, so many dumb issues with it on current cars.

Happy to hear that “all” versions are getting Lane Centering. Going to assume even manuals then? So nice on commutes

Ford’s LCA was pretty good on the Mach-E I rented. Now Lane Keeping? Meh, don’t care for LKA

i seriously doubt the CF wheels are going to be 19X9.5 + 19X10, i'm sure whoever typed it out made a mistake, as it makes no sense for the even more track focused wheel to be thinner than the handling package wheel

i imagine that the manuals will have it, yes, as it only requires moving the wheels and nothing with shifting
i know what you mean, before i got my M1, i got in an accident with my Legacy and had an Explorer Hybrid loaner, and when you're feeling really lazy, adaptive cruise + lane centering is the best

You should be able to turn off the brake assist function in the settings. This capability exists in Ford/Lincolns that have brake assist currently.

Yeah I'm aware it can be toggled, I have no issue with it's operation actually. Pretty helpful assist, scares the 🤬 out of you the first time though.

The issue I have is after programming for some recalls or TSB's, it throws a warning message for it - so then you need to drive it to learn steering center again. If that doesn't work...then reprogram more modules! *face palm* Seems like that has been resolved lately though. That's just my pet peeve with it.

I can't get over the twisted toggle rack and center vents - looks so lame.
Looks crooked and doesn't help function much. I think that bugs me the most here.

I think that once you sit in the driver's seat it won't seem crooked to the eye. It will be more 'level'. Then again, I don't care for the entire dash as it is. The whole thing screams 'thrown together'.

Yeah, I guess the "photo from teh center back seat" doesn't help.

It's goofy though.

FWIW, I like this "new" car - biggest letdown is how little it changed. The 480hp helped a bit.

So there is a larger radiator in the Ecoboost. Very interesting. I wonder if the inter cooler is also bigger.

Why do they mention that seat belts are in black? They are black anway.....

Why wasn't the blind spot detection system mentioned as part of technical assistant including the cross traffic alert and pedestrian detection?

well that is a new bad word I was hoping not to see...speed sign recognition. That has all the markings of an OTA update that will restrict speed or send you unwanted mail thanks to Big Brother. That had better be something you can disable easily.

You don't suppose that if Ford *really* wanted to do that, they would have already?
