2024 Ford Mustang V-8 tax-guzzler at a high price


The Mustang GT now starts at $44,090 and the Dark Horse starts at $60,895 – an increase of $1000 and $1300, respectively.

The 2024 Ford Mustang with V-8 option will cost more than previously reported, according to Motor Authority. The price increase for the V-8 model is primarily due to a gas tax that adds $1,000 to $1,300.

The Mustang GT coupe now starts at $44,090 (up $1,000) and the 500-hp Dark Horse starts at $60,895 (up $1,300). People planning to buy a 2024 Ford Mustang with a revised 5.0-liter Coyote V-8 will have to pay at least $1,000 more than expected. The price increase comes

from the new seventh generation pony car fuel tax, which applies to cars that do not meet fuel economy standards. This pre-owned Mustang GT coupe originally had a low MSRP of $43,090, but now it drops to $44,090 after adding the $1,000 gas tax. This also applies to the GT

Premium coupe and convertible models, which see their starting prices jump to $48,610 and $54,110, respectively. The Mustang Dark

Horse, which has an upgraded version of the Coyote V-8 and produces 500 horsepower compared to the GT’s 480 to 486 ponies, also has a $1,300 higher fuel consumption tax. This increases the base MSRP of the newly launched performance model to $60,895. A Ford

]spokesperson also told Car and Driver that the base price of the Dark Horse Premium has increased by $1,400 “due to high demand”.

It now starts at $64,860.

Many Dark Horse options are available and will cost more than expected. The list includes the Appearance Package (ranging from $250 to $1500), the Handling Package (ranging from $495 to $4995) and carbon fiber wheels (ranging from $500 to $8995). The 2024 Ford

Mustang is expected to go on sale this summer.
