2024 Ford Mustang Early Review | Consumer Reports

2024 Ford Mustang Early Review | Consumer Reports 1

The 2024 Ford Mustang may be the last of the V8-powered muscle cars out of Detroit. It's redesigned with bold new styling, dramatic bodywork, advanced safety tech and increased power. We drove the top trim Dark Horse model and found its 500hp and track friendly features a blast, so long as you're driving on a closed track.

    Super video.

  2. Well done.

  3. Slow, noisy, inefficient.

  4. CR – this is a true car guy talking! You must have him on Talking Cars!

    For track days, I recommend a used formula ford for about 15,000 dollars, which will annihilate any street car.

  7. 4:29. Don’t capitulate to our declining culture. We don’t need OR WANT the cursing!!

    Drifting on asphalt, like all the other automotive journalists in recent years ! I expected more maturity from CR !

  9. My biggest issue with recent Mustangs is that back seat. As big as this car is for a “sports car”, it would be nice to at least fit a child back there. This thing is just a place to expand the trunk for carrying tires.

    Great review! Can’t wait to hear more about the GT you buy!

    Good quick review of the Dark Horse. However since I ordered one, I know that the Recaro seats are an option at $1600 dollars. Not a standard seat. I would never buy this Dark Horse without the Handling Package which cost $4500 dollars. The HP is what really sets off the difference from the GT car. The enhanced engine upgrades is also significantly improved upon the GT!!!!!
    Overall decent video.

  12. Nice looking car. Too expensive

  13. Do I need both kidneys?

  14. Hell yeah sending it

  15. It’s great to see CR having fun in their videos.

    Super informative video. I guess they’ve come a long way since I drove a rented 6-cylinder Mustang like 10 years ago. Well done, Mike and CR!

    Great review from Mike Crossen, a real-life car enthusiast with tons of time behind the tiller AND turning wrenches.
