Indeed, we have seen the interior of the seventh generation Ford Mustang. However, all of Ford’s press photos show the higher-spec trim level, with only one digital rendering set aside to reveal the lower-trim bangs. There are some important differences to point out beyond color and material, and now we can see how that plays out in the real world.
One of our spy photographers bumped into the 2024 EcoBoost Mustang. When stopped, the camera dives for a close-up and the result is our first actual view of the streamlined cockpit. First and foremost are two separate digital displays, one for the driver and the other for the car’s central infotainment system. This look integrates into a long single screen as you move up the Mustang’s trim and options hierarchy, but it starts here with a separate tablet.
According to Ford, the individual screens measure 12.4 inches for the driver’s display and 13.2 inches for the center infotainment system. Connecting them behind a single screen is mentioned as an option, but as of now, Ford hasn’t specified where that option is offered in the lineup, or whether it’s standard at any point. Anyway, if you’re in the market for the cheapest 2024 Ford Mustang, here’s how it looks inside.
Beyond the split view, you can expect lots of gray and black throughout the cockpit. Fabric replaces the leather trim on the seats and doors, but there’s still the carbon fiber effect that runs down the center of the dash and on the center console around the shifter. The cockpit has a minimalist feel but the tactile controls on the steering wheel and center stack still offer some analog controls for the driver.
Save for the electronic handbrake cover in lieu of a proper grip, the rendering matches real-world images. That said, the actual interior doesn’t appear as dynamic in public as it does in the official press pictures.
The 2024 Ford Mustang will reach dealerships later this year.
