Ford Authority is reporting that the S650 Mustang GT will produce 450 horsepower, the same figure as the current Mustang GT.

The all-new, next-generation S650 2024 Ford Mustang was revealed back in September following years of anticipation, and while it looks a lot like the outgoing, S550 model, the newest pony car is a totally new machine in many ways. That includes its engine lineup, which consists of the carryover turbocharged Ford 2.3L I-4 EcoBoost and naturally-aspirated Ford 5.0L V8 Coyote powerplants, though each has received a host of revisions. However, sources familiar with the matter have told Ford Authority that the 2024 Ford Mustang GT will produce 450 horsepower – the same exact figure as the current-gen V8-powered model.

This rating applies only to the 2024 Ford Mustang GT – not the new Dark Horse variant, which is targeting an output of 500 horsepower and sounds pretty amazing. Regardless, it’s still a letdown for fans of the pony car, who were undoubtedly hoping to see at least a modest boost in power for the next-generation model. Regardless, even though it may not offer any more in terms of horsepower than the outgoing model, it is worth appreciating the fact that the 2024 Ford Mustang still exists in its current form – which wouldn’t be possible without the presence of the Ford Mustang Mach-E, according to Blue Oval CEO Jim Farley.
