Ford plans next-generation GT4 Mustang

Ford has extended its commitment to the GT4 category by confirming that a new-generation Mustang GT4 is in the works and set to hit the track next season.

Ahead of this weekend’s Daytona 24 Hours, Ford Performance laid out plans for its future in GT racing and, alongside launching a new GT3 challenger in the future, the Blue Oval also confirmed that its technical partner Multimatic Motorsports was already working on a successor to its current Mustang GT4.

While images of the new car have yet to be released, Ford promised the new machine would feature during the 2023 season.

Ford Performance Motorsport’s global director Mark Rushbrook said: “It’s important to us to continue to support the Mustang GT4 effort. We’ve had a lot of success both here [in America] and in Europe with the current Mustang GT4, and we look forward to being able to provide our customers with a brand-new car for competition in the GT4 category starting next season. We’ll have more to say on that in the near future.”

The new Mustang GT3 project will feature an engine made by Ford specialist M-Sport, but there has been no update as to whether the British firm will also supply power to the new GT4 version.

The current Ford Mustang GT4 has enjoyed success in both America and Europe and has recorded several race victories in SRO competitions.
