Even after a series of teasers for an all-electric version of its pony car poster boy, the Blue Oval settled for a compact crossover instead. Say what you want about the Mach-E, but the fact remains that it was a success. It seems Ford wants to make a splash before its catalog completely switches to sustainable powertrains with the 2024 Mustang.

Most of its rivals are already preparing green reworks of their respective muscle cars, but Ford is holding off as long as it can. Hence, those who never wanted an eco-friendly take on an icon can rest easy for now. The 2024 Mustang is the seventh-generation model and will rely on a traditional power plant.

Nevertheless, the positive reception of the battery-electric venture is something the manufacturer can ignore. Automotive pundits are speculating that this might be the last production run relying on internal combustion technology.

According to sources, the 2024 Mustang will come in two options. The entry-level trim will roll off the assembly line with a 2.3-liter turbocharged EcoBoost mill. Meanwhile, buyers who crave pure power should consider the variant with a 5.0-liter Coyote V8 instead.

As of this writing, Ford is keeping the performance numbers under wraps. However, we do know the engines tout a collection of upgrades. The hallmark menacing stance it gets from the sleek bodywork is still intact. The 2024 Mustang will be available in a coupe or convertible configuration.

Despite the ICE, the upcoming pony cars are incorporating exciting new tech. The digital instrument panel and infotainment unit will offer more intuitive controls and features. To show off how it sounds with the key fob, just activate the Remote Rev function. The 2024 Mustang is slated to hit dealerships next summer.
