The 2024 Ford Mustang is starting to reveal its secrets as spy photographers have snapped the first interior pictures of the next generation model codenamed S650 .
Looking like a vast improvement over the outgoing pony car, the 2024 Mustang features a digital instrument cluster with a circular speedometer and tachometer. They’re separated by a wide vehicle information area, which is showing a “steering assist fault” on this prototype.
Speaking of displays, the Mustang has been equipped with an all-new infotainment system that flows into the digital instrument cluster and is mounted higher on the dashboard. It resides above rectangular air vents, which feature metallic surrounds.
Further below, there’s a push-button ignition and a dedicated volume knob. The two are separated by a row of switches that provide easy access to the engine start/stop system and traction control system. We can also see a ‘pony’ switch and one with a star above it.
Elsewhere, there are easy to access USB ports and an evolutionary shifter. They’re joined by a classy leather-wrapped handbrake and metallic-rimmed cup holders. The prototype also sports a new flat-bottomed steering wheel that appears more ergonomic, less clustered, and far more modern. Other notable highlights include metallic door handles and a redesigned dashboard.
Ford has been tight-lipped about the upcoming model, but it could be offered with hybridized versions of the familiar 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder and 5.0-liter V8. The automaker has been coy on specifics, but previously said the “Mustang Hybrid will be all about delivering V8-like performance with more low-end torque.”
Little else is known about the pony car at this point, but it’s slated to debut next year as a 2024 model being available in both coupe and soft-top convertible body styles.
