Ford has announced that it is investing $3.7 billion in manufacturing in the United States and part of that investment will go to the seventh-generation Ford Mustang and the new Ranger.

Ford Investment Announcement

Ford plans to build the new Mustang at its Flat Rock Assembly plant and the Ranger at the┬áMichigan Assembly Plant in Wayne. That’s part of a $2 billion investment in Michigan that will create 3,200 new jobs.

If you’re wondering if the 2024 Mustang will be available with a manual transmission, the good news is yes. Ford dropped an Easter egg in the announcement about the new Mustang with the “O” in “generation” showing a six-speed manual shift pattern. Ford hasn’t announced when the 2024 Mustang will debut, but there have been rumors that we’ll get to see it in April 2023.
