The Ford Mustang has been one of the world’s most popular muscle cars ever since its introduction all the way back in 1965. Now, more than 50 years later, the 2018 Ford Mustang is poised to launch with some very important changes that will ensure this legendary muscle car remains on top!
Active Exhaust Notes
The 2018 Mustang will now feature an “Active Exhaust System” which will allow you tailor the aural violence of your ride! A “Quiet” mode is perfect for early-morning start-ups to avoid angering the neighbours, while the system uncorks itself in “Sport” and ‘Track” mode so you can hear your Mustang’s unfiltered roar!
The “standard” Mustang GT is already a powerful and smart-handling vehicle. However, Ford aims to up its game with an optional performance package that includes the super-sticky tire setup from the GT350, as well as a front splitter and rear spoiler for greater downforce at speed. Track junkies will love this one!
No one could ever accuse the Mustang of being underpowered, and yet Ford added even more oomph for 2018! The 2.3L EcoBoost engine now pumps out an extra 30 lb-ft of torque for ratings of 310hp and 350 lb-ft. The 5.0L V8 also sees an increase of 25hp and 20 lb-ft for a total of 460hp and 420 lb-ft. Yowza!
Despite being a performance car, efficiency is still important. After all, nobody likes standing around at the pumps! That’s why, in spite of the power increases, the Mustang also sees slight increases to fuel efficiency. EcoBoost models are now rated at 11.0 city, 8.2 highway, while the more powerful GT models are rated at 15.1 city and 9.3 highway.
2018 Mustangs will be arriving soon in Team Ford’s New Vehicle Inventory, where you can also find 2017 Mustangs at reduced prices! Our Used Vehicle Inventory also offers lightly-used examples from 2016 and earlier at knock-down prices. Either way, if you want a Mustang, Team Ford is where you need to be!
