1 minute, 33 seconds Read

The new Ford Mustang has been hit with its third delay in nine months, and is now not due until the second half of this year.


The 2024 Ford Mustang sports car is due to launch in Australia more than 12 months behind schedule – and two years after it was unveiled – following the third delay in nine months.

The new Mustang – from $64,990 plus on-road costs when prices were announced last year – has been pushed from the second quarter of 2024 (April to June) to the second half of this year.

Drive understands the start of right-hand-drive production has been delayed.

When it was unveiled in September 2022, the Mustang was scheduled to launch in the third quarter of 2023 (July to September), before it was delayed in mid-2023 to the first quarter of 2024 (January to March), and then in October 2023 to the second quarter of 2024.

It will now not arrive in showrooms until about two years after its global reveal.

Six variants are offered in the new Ford Mustang line-up – the EcoBoost four-cylinder automatic coupe, GT V8 manual and auto coupe, GT V8 auto convertible, and Dark Horse V8 manual and auto coupe

Just two Ford Mustangs were reported as sold last month – and 16 in the past three months – as the final examples of the current-generation model are sold from dealer stock.
