The 2024 Ford Mustang Dark Horse is set to be a standout addition to Ford’s lineup, with a range of unique features that set it apart from the standard Mustang model. The Dark Horse will be offered with an exclusive color-shifting Blue Ember exterior paint that combines warm and blue tones to create a pearlescent hue. This paint color was chosen to be “shadowy and sinister” with the added complexity to turn heads on the street. In addition, buyers can choose from two special stripe options for the exterior, either a vinyl stripe that accentuates the raised center of the hood or a hand-painted stripe inspired by airflow over the body of the Dark Horse.
The black and blue theme continues in the interior, with an anodized blue titanium shift knob for the six-speed manual transmission and anodized silver paddle shifters behind the steering wheel. The interior also features Bright Indigo Blue contrast stitching and a flat-bottomed steering wheel covered in suede. The Mustang Dark Horse Appearance Package adds Recaro performance seats with Deep Indigo Blue bolsters and blue seat belts. The car’s vents and bezels are finished in “Black Alley,” and the interior features laser-etched carbon fiber grain and a badge with the vehicle’s chassis number.
The 2024 Ford Mustang Dark Horse will be powered by a 5.0-liter Coyote V8 engine that produces 500 hp and 418 lb-ft of torque. For those looking for a performance edge, the car will also be available with optional carbon-fiber wheels made in collaboration with Carbon Revolution. These wheels were rigorously tested for strength and rigidity, and are 37% lighter than the standard aluminum wheels, saving an average of 20.1 lbs. The wheels feature a five-spoke design with the lug nuts located between the spokes, and are protected from brake heat with a combination of ceramic and metal materials.
Customers will be able to start customizing their own 2024 Ford Mustang Dark Horse in the summer of 2023, when it goes on sale. With its unique color-shifting paint, premium interior details, and performance-oriented features, the Dark Horse is sure to turn heads and offer an unforgettable driving experience.
