2024 Mustang GT Interior and Exterior Design

In the 2024 Mustang GT, both the interior and exterior designs have undergone significant updates, breathing new life into this iconic vehicle.

Starting with the interior, the classic dual-brow dash has been replaced with a modern and sleek look. The centerpiece is a long rectangular display that cleverly combines two screens under one seamless glass surface. The first is a 12.4-inch screen responsible for the instrument cluster, providing essential vehicle information. The second is a larger 13.2-inch touchscreen that serves as the control hub for most cockpit functions and features, including climate control, stereo settings, and even launch control. The touchscreen interface is mostly intuitive, although it may accumulate fingerprints quickly.

As for the exterior, the 2024 Mustang GT retains its distinctive Mustang identity while sporting fresh and updated styling. Ford has intentionally created a design that pays homage to its heritage without being confined to a rigid copy of the past. Among the Mustang variants—the four-cylinder EcoBoost, the GT, and the upcoming track-focused Dark Horse—external similarities are kept to a minimum, with only the headlamps being shared among them.

The exterior panels have undergone refinements, featuring smoother lines and clarified S550 components. Notable design elements include the newly emphasized hips, which add to the car's aggressive stance. The hood extractor vents and more pronounced grille openings on the GT and Dark Horse versions give these models an extra touch of boldness and performance-oriented aesthetics. Additionally, a distinctive "bent" panel sits between the taillights, further contributing to the overall captivating look of the 2024 Mustang GT. Finally, when in the shadows, the car appears longer and lower. The new grille and underbody panels help the car move more smoothly by reducing drag. Overall, the car looks great in pictures, and even better in person.

How's the Drive of 2024 Mustang GT

We had the chance to test the Mustang GT in a Performance-pack version, equipped with a manual gearbox and sporting a Vapor Blue Metallic color. The total price came to an impressive $60,755 with some critical options added. These options included Pirelli P Zero PZ4s, MagneRide active dampers, and a 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system.

The exterior design is updated and reminiscent of the classic Mustang look. The car appears longer and lower when in shadows, thanks to some neat design touches. The new grille opening and underbody panels not only add to the aesthetics but also help reduce drag.

Driving the Mustang GT is an absolute blast. The steering feels slightly improved compared to the previous model, offering better feedback. The MagneRide dampers work wonders regardless of the chassis mode, providing excellent grip and agility while smoothing out bumps on the road.

Under the hood, the engine delivers strong torque in the midrange, making it enjoyable to drive on back roads. The manual transmission offers a satisfying shifting experience, though there have been concerns about its durability. However, Ford is addressing this with the Tremec TR-3160 manual transmission on the upcoming Dark Horse model.

Overall, the Mustang GT remains a V-8-powered, rear-wheel-drive, and attractive car with classic styling. It's a pleasure to drive, from daily commutes to spirited rides. For enthusiasts who appreciate a manual transmission, the GT is a great option and a true bargain for the driving experience it provides.
