NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

The next generation Ford Mustang is almost ready to run out of the stable.

The 2024 Mustang will reportedly be making its public debut in September at the Detroit Auto Show.

The show was canceled the past two years due to the coronavirus pandemic and has been moved from its traditional January dates in an effort to grow its audience.

Ford in June announced that an all-new Mustang is on the way and will be built at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant in Michigan that manufactures the current model, but did not say exactly when it would first be shown or go on sale.

Sources now tell Automotive News that the reveal will happen at the show ahead of the start of production early next year.

The insiders also said that the new Mustang would continue to be powered by V8 and turbocharged four-cylinder engines like the current model, while Ford dealers were recently told that a hybrid will also be offered.

Ford’s June announcement included an audio clip of a V8 engine revving, along with a 7th Generation logo with the grip of a six-speed manual transmission taking the place of the O in generation.

Disguised prototypes have recently been spotted on public roads equipped with exhaust pipes, and there’s no word that an all-electric version will be part of the lineup.

The Ford F-150 PowerBoost hybrid powertrain mixes a turbocharged V6 with electric drive to produce 430 hp and 570 lb-ft of torque, which would be appropriate for the Mustang.
