How Affordable Are New Mustangs?

One way to think about the affordability of a car is to compare its price to the median family income. Here's a look at how much the most affordable Mustang models cost the average American family at the launch of each generation.

New Mustang MSRPs Vs Median Family Income
Mustang Base MSRP Median Family Income Percentage of Income
1964.5 Mustang Hardtop $2,427 $6,600 36%
1974 Mustang II Hardtop Coupe $3,363 $11,100 30%
1979 Fox Body Sedan $4,494 $16,530 27%
1994 Mustang Coupe $13,355 $33,178 40%
2005 Mustang Coupe Deluxe $19,215 $46,242 42%
2015 Mustang V6 Fastback $23,800 $56,516 42%
2024 Mustang EcoBoost $30,000 (EST.) $70,784 (for 2021) 42%

The price of the Mustang has been steadily increasing over time and will continue to do so in 2023. However, even if median family incomes don't rise beyond 2021 numbers (the most recent data available), a $30K S650 model would still cost around 42% of an average household's yearly income. That puts it on par with most of the Mustang's past generations, particularly from the Fox Body and up.

While you can debate whether any vehicle should cost close to half of a family's yearly earnings, the new S650 does seem to offer a lot for the price. Be sure to stay tuned for more updates on the new Mustang's price as we get closer to the launch date in the summer of 2023!
