Rumors spread

The “scramble” at the North American International Auto Show wouldn’t be the first time this had happened.

There have been a lot of rumors flying in recent weeks, among other things, some “experts” speculating that we could see the first all-electric version of the classic Mustang coupe. That’s it but for sure Not In the cards, our own sources on TheDetroitBureau.com tell us… We’ll have to wait until sometime after mid-decade to see the coupe run all-electric, and Ford prefers to stick with its classic powerhouse, including updated V-8 configurations now.

However, the automaker has already confirmed that the traditional hybrid will be part of the mix for the next generation of Mustang.

Sticking with internal combustion technology is a winning formula, or so many Ford insiders assert. After all, Dodge will abandon the familiar Challenger and Charger models at the end of 2023, and switch to An all-electric alternative in 2024 based on the Charger Daytona SRT concept It was revealed earlier this week.

The new Mustang — known inside Ford by the codename S650 — isn’t just a rework of the outgoing pony car. there The new hybrid for one thing. And you can expect the gas-electric drivetrain to be tuned to deliver a hefty dose of power, rather than just focusing on fuel economy.

How many other variants will be available is one of the questions we hope Ford will answer, whether on Friday or during next month’s auto show event. At the bottom end, expect to see a 2.3-liter Inline-4 cruising around, making around 320 horsepower for 2023. What’s less certain is whether the 760-horsepower GT500 will remain in the mix, and if so, what kind of package that comes in. We’ll find it under the hood.

Ford has almost certainly taken steps to stiffen the S650 platform to improve handling of the seventh-generation Mustang. This is one of the real weaknesses of the outgoing car.

In keeping with current trends, expect to see the coupe loaded with new digital technology, including the latest version of Ford’s Sync5 infotainment system.
