The Next Ford Mustang Will Be Without Hybrid Drives

There is less than a day left until the debut of the new, now seventh generation Ford Mustang model. We will officially see it next Wednesday, that is, on September 14, and AutoRepublika will, as usual, prepare its detailed analysis. Over the past few years, there has been a lot of speculation about what the future holds, especially after Ford gave us an electric crossover called the Mustang Mach E.

Then we had to look at the situation with the competition, so the Dodge Challenger will disappear from the market after next year, while the successor of the main rival Chevrolet Camaro should be an electric sedan.
That alone is something we can be happy about regardless of what Ford brings us next week, because if nothing else, the combustion engine-powered Mustang will at least be around for another generation.

One of the stories that was current in previous years is the one that talks about the fact that the American vehicle manufacturer will also offer us hybrid editions. Not at the very beginning, but a little later, and the theory is very simple, since the combination of a gasoline and electric engine can only provide better performance.
This idea originated back in 2017 when Ford was led by Mark Fields, and as his position was taken by Jim Farley two years later, it lost its popularity. Colleagues from the website Automotive News told us last year that the hybrid edition will arrive in showrooms by 2025, but that idea will no longer bear fruit. The reason lies in the aforementioned crossover called the Mach E, and the company believes that another Mustang with an electric motor is not necessary. Earlier we wrote that we could also see a model with four-wheel drive, but Farli was not interested in this idea either.

So what does the new Mustang bring us? Well, actually, a little at the expense of mechanics and we will see identical engines again. The offer will start with a 2.3-liter turbo gasoline engine with 330 horsepower and an optional 5.0-liter with 460 horsepower. The choice of transmission will again be six-speed manual and ten-speed automatic. Those high-performance versions like the Mach 1 and the Shelby GT500 will no longer be part of the lineup.
