2023 Ford Mustang confirmed by Ford’s Ali Jammoul (vehicle program director of Icons and Ford Performance) to Wheels in Australia. Also, a V8 engine would be offered, despite the plans for Blue Oval’s electrification future.
New Plans for 2023 Ford Mustang
Jammoul told Wheels, “The next generation that we’re working on now will be launching next year, in 2023, and it’s going to be great”. He didn’t mention when we might see the new Mustang, but according to rumours, the car will go on sale in The U.S. for the 2024 model year. Jammoul also said, “What we need to do, though, is make the V8 more environmentally friendly and you need to make sure it’s regulatory compliant. And that’s absolutely something we have worked on and will certainly have in the next-generation Mustang.“.
This indicates Ford is cleaning up the V8 for engine’s emission. This statement might relate to the reports of, a V8 for the rear wheels and an electric motor for the front, resulting in the first AWD Mustang. Jammoul also said with less clarity, “So I can’t tell you the manual gearbox is here to stay, but there will be more electrification, and manual gearboxes will not be around in the future“.
An Electric Mustang is possible with Jammoul saying, “Clearly, the market is moving toward electrification and we’re committed to doing more performance vehicles that are EVs. Would that carry the name Mustang? Maybe”. Here are spy shots of the new Mustang under heavy camouflage. The silhouette of the Mustang shows the classic design of having a long hood and short rear deck.
