It’s an unofficial interpretation based on current spy photos.
The Ford Mustang of the next generation is on its way. We’ve seen spy images and watched up-close spy video that confirms V8 power. Ford has stated that a GT3 Mustang would be raced in 2024, so we already have a few pieces of the next pony puzzle. Now we have an idea of what the next Mustang might look like.
It’s vital to keep in mind that this is an unofficial translation. The Sketch Monkey created the film, and while it is based on spy pictures, we’ve only seen cars that are heavily camouflaged. Details are still scarce, but spy images have given us a glimpse of what’s going on beneath the surface, particularly in the Mustang’s face. As a result, that is the main focus of this project. If the report is correct, Ford’s pony car won’t deviate too much from the current formula.
If I had to describe this rendering in one word, it would be clean. The grille is envisaged somewhat smaller and with evident inspirations from the Mustang Mach-E, using body lines visible through extensive camouflage. In essence, it flips the current Mustang’s scowl upside down, resulting in a more cheerful grille. It blends in perfectly with the narrow headlights seen in spy images, implying that the lenses will progressively grow larger as they reach into the fenders. The new Mustang’s aggressive corner vents have been replaced by conservative rectangular apertures united by a lower grille that spans the width of the car.
We’ve yet to have a clear look at the next-gen car without substantial coverings. However, we’ve seen enough to know the overall shape will be very similar to the current car. Dimensions look nearly the same, from the overall height to the slope of the roof and even the angle of the rear fascia. It’s safe to say the new Mustang will adopt an evolutionary approach, keeping it universal enough to win the hearts of a global audience.

Will it be enough, however, to entice wayward buyers in the United States? Ford’s pony car had its worst sales year ever in 2021, marking a years-long slide that actually saw the Dodge Challenger take the Mustang’s best-selling crown for North America. We have to think executives in Dearborn are at least a little bit concerned about that.
