Next Generation Ford Mustang to Get a Hybrid Option

Might a hybrid V8 Ford Mustang set the stage for a future AWD GT500?

  • Both the EcoBoost 2.3-litre and Coyote V8 are expected to get a hybrid boost.

  • The new 2024 Mustang will be an updated current-generation car.

Ford is one of the many automakers who are committed to electrifying its entire lineup over the coming years. That means the Mustang sports car will be part of these plans. Now, according to a report, a Ford hybrid Pony is only a few years away.

The next-generation Ford Mustang is expected to land sometime in 2023 for the 2024 model year. According to Motor Trend, the new S650 ‘Stang will borrow heavily from the current S550 Mustang, meaning that both the Ecoboost 2.3-litre 4-cylinder and Coyote V8 engines will return.

The new Mustang however will evolve visually with a new front fascia, updated rear-end treatment, as well as a number of other touches indoors with a new digital cluster, and so on.

Now, while the 2.3L and V8 will return in 2024, with the available 6-speed manual and 10-speed automatic transmissions, things will go electric from 2025 as either hybrid or plug-in hybrid technologies will be grafted upon the two mills. Depending on some sources, the PHEVs Mustangs could offer between 10 and 20 miles (16 and 32 km) of EV range.

One way or another, it is expected that both powertrains will produce more power and most importantly, a PHEV or hybrid 5.0-litre V8 could pave the way for a pair of electric motors to be mounted on the front axle for even more power and serious torque vectoring.
