2023 S650 Mustang Details

January 14, 2021

Today, we got our first look at the new S650 generation Mustang in a very long time. Caught testing in Michigan by Mustang7G member Jarstang, this is the first time we’ve seen the new Mustang without body cladding from the S550 generation Mustang. The pictures, while still showing a heavily disguised car with full-body camouflaging is the first look at the new sheet metal bodywork of the car. With the possibility of new engine options underneath the hood, the new Mustang will most likely start the path towards a new era of the Mustang nameplate.


At first glance, the S650 test mule looks generally the same as the current S550 generation of the American icon. However, upon closer inspection, there are slightly noticeable differences throughout the images of the car. The roofline still looks aggressively raked backward but not sloping fully down for the fastback effect currently found on the Mustang. The return of this roofline sounds appealing with regards to styling and the car’s heritage. Additionally, the car keeps a similarly shaped profile and rear end in terms of the decklid and diffuser making it seem like it will carry some of the panels or general design from the S550.


With all of these similarities, there are some major differences as well. The most obvious is found in the headlights of the car. Gone are the three boomerang-shaped running lights and in return come two LED lights similar to what is found in the GT supercar. The grille looks slightly larger than the current model but retains the same general shaping as well as the lower grille shape. The taillights look reworked as well, running LEDs as well but still continuing the look of the current-generation Mustang. The car seems to be sitting very high for a sports car, so it leads us to believe there is either a new suspension change or possibly additional gearing on the wheels themselves to increase power.

We are excited to see what is to come with the new S650 generation of the Mustang in 2023 or 2024 as well as what we can do to it to make it perform even better than ever. With the new challenges of these cars as they debut, we get excited and anticipate the aftermarket will grow quickly especially for us.

In recent years, the Mustang has become the best selling sports car ever throughout America and the entire world. This achievement is due to the over six decades of innovation from Ford and the Mustang engineering team. Each generation has ensured to push the boundaries of innovation, technology, and lineage from the last. Culminating up to the sixth generation stallion, Ford knew they had to create a landmark just as they did on April 17, 1964, when they shocked the world with the original pony car. So in 2015, they did just that, releasing the S550 Mustang to the world at the same location as in the first generation Mustang in New York City. The six-generation Mustang culminated in the fifty-years of historical performance, style, sophistication, and racing of the original pony car, all others to follow.

Ford created the most successful and legendary muscle car in the history of American automotive history. The S550 Mustang, in its sixth year of production, means it is heading towards the end of its generation cycle. It means the Mustang team has some big shoes to fulfill because of the most successful modern Mustang to date. In the last few years, there has been speculation on what the next generation Mustang would be in the form of the S650 chassis platform. We are very excited to see what the Mustang and Ford Performace team come up with in terms of power, styling, and performance. Throughout the rest of this article below, we’ll explain our thoughts and speculation on what the S650 Mustang could become.

Thanks to our friends over at Ford Authority, we were able to get a close-up shot of a new test mule of the S650 Mustang coming for the 2023 model year!

The biggest takeaway here is the rear brakes pictured below. This is a different brake combo than what we've seen on the new GT500, so we're eager to see what comes of this new development. It certainly could be just a packaging change, or it truly could be hints of AWD coming for the Mustang sooner than we think! Either way, we're excited for what's to come, so be sure to stay tuned here at Steeda for the latest info on the S650 Mustang!

Design Speculation

For some time, there has been constant speculation and rumors about what the next-generation Mustang will become. After six successful generations of America’s favorite pony car Ford will have to pull out all the stops to create the most magnificent pony ever to leave the stable. Rumors have been floating around that this seventh generation will have the most impactful technology such as all-wheel drive, a hybrid powertrain to boost horsepower and torque, and a completely revised chassis to bring the Mustang into a new era.

The picture above is a rendering that has been floating around the Mustang community on the S650 could be. From our take, we think that this new pony to the stable will continue the long lineage from all six previous generations but pushing into the future with more technology, engineering, and all-new drivetrains to offer to a wider variety of people. Due to the incredible success of the S550 Mustang, as well as the success of the Coyote 5.0L V8, Voodoo 5.2L Flat Plane Crank, and Supercharged 5.2L Predator V8 we, alike every Mustang enthusiast, is interested to see how after nearly sixty years Ford will continue the heritage of the breed.

Arrival In 2022

The entire Mustang community is anxious to see what Ford will do to the seventh generation stallion. Unlike the past six generations, the all-new pony will most likely be the most revolutionary in design, technology, drivetrain choices, and sophistication. For instance, the image above from our friends over at Autocar is a concept design that is the next adaptation of what could be America’s favorite pony ever built. We here at Steeda think that the S650 is going to be an evolution to what the current Mustang is right now. Due to the lack of knowing what drivetrains, components, and information, we can’t give cold hard facts on what it performs.

We know from recently recorded sources that it will arrive in 2022 as a 2023 model. We certainly hope Ford will continue with the Coyote 5.0L V8 but reforming it to a more powerful evolution of the first three generations of all-out Mustang performance. It will be tough for the Mustang team to one-up the S550 Mustang because of the immense success Ford has created within the most potent and best-performing pony to ever come out of the stable. Everyone at Steeda is looking forward to the next evolution of the American legend and its competition amongst its competitors.
