The 2024 Ford Mustang Revs Remotely

  • Ford will let you rev your next-gen 2024 Mustang by pressing a button combination on your key fob.
  • The Remote Rev feature is available on all automatic-equipped V8 Mustangs and those equipped with the 2.3-liter that have the active exhaust.
  • Ford notes that the Remote Rev feature won’t be available until the vehicle reaches the correct temperature after a cold start.

    Have you ever wanted to hear what your exhaust sounds like, but don’t trust your friends to hit the loud pedal? Well, Ford has a solution for the next-gen 2024 Mustang owner. Dubbed Remote Rev, you can use your key fob to remotely blip the throttle and hear what your exhaust sounds like from outside the cabin.

    As you can see in the tweet below, the system appears to work pretty well. The car can be running, and you can get out to rev the engine with the fob, or you can start the car from outside and then rev the engine, once it has warmed up. It seems like you won’t accidentally start revving your new Mustang to the moon by bumping the fob in your pocket. Instead, you’ll have to intentionally trip the unlock and lock buttons in sequence to activate the system.

    We also see in the Twitter video that this system doesn’t simply blip the throttle. The video above shows the 5.0-liter V8 hit 5000 rpm, which probably sounded pretty good in that studio. Of course, your neighbors might have different thoughts if you’re using your Remote Rev feature at odd hours of the night.

    While we’re sure this Remote Rev feature will be a fun gimmick for folks, we’re sure that Mustang fans are more excited to see how this pony performs when it goes on sale this summer. Option pricing is not yet available.
