No matter if someone is a fan of the Ford Mustang or not, everyone knows the model to be an iconic muscle car. The Ford Mustang has been in constant production ever since it first hit the market in 1964. Every single model since then has been a muscle car, so fans will be wondering what makes the 2024 Ford Mustang any different.
In TheSketchMonkey's YouTube video, Ford fans can understand everything they need to know about the new Mustang's loss of identity.
The 2024 Ford Mustang Details
Fans already know that the 2024 Ford Mustang is going to be the model's seventh-generation. But, what fans do not yet know is exactly what features or performance it will offer. From the video and sketch work from TheSketchMonkey, his design proposal shows what the 2024 Ford Mustang might look like. It takes inspiration from spy photos and current Ford trends that will have a major impact on the next Ford Mustang generation.
The Mustang's design trend seems to be heading away from the traditional muscle car philosophy when comparing the 1964 Ford Mustang to the 2022 model. This is due to the latest production Mustang offering a design that aligns with the performance sports car market. It isn't a bad idea for Ford. Yet, it means that the future of the Ford Mustang might never see another muscle car, which will eliminate its traditional essence.
Why Is The 2024 Model Not A Muscle Car?
From the spy photos and sketch work in the video, it is obvious to see that the new body for the 2024 model will be very similar to the 2022 model. The intake, headlights, and grille all sit in the same position, which doesn't quite align with the original Mustang muscle car design.
The final sketch shows that the end design of the 2024 Ford Mustang could be even more shy in terms of muscle car fierceness, which just proves that Ford might truly be leaning towards the performance sports car market for its seventh-generation Mustang.
In summary, it is a real shame to think about Ford getting rid of the Mustang's iconic muscle car identity. It has held the muscle car badge for decades, so it will be disappointing for fans if, the 2024 Ford Mustang does lose its muscle car status.
