Since the eternal rival, Chevrolet Camaro 1LE had its debut at the LA Auto Show this year, making the life for Ford Mustang tough, changes like MagneRide dampers, a ten-speed automatic and a new Performance Package had to be made in order for Ford Mustang to maintain in the race and keep the flagship competitive.
Price for new 2018 Mustang
Current models of this car cost around $65,00, so if you would like this special pony-car in your ownership, expect the price to be higher for 2018 model.
2018 Ford Mustang Release date
2018 Ford Mustang is expected to debut at an auto show later this year or early next year before going on sale late in 2017 as a 2018 model.
The mechanical upgrades, expected to happen on this car, will probably be joined by a handful of visual tweaks. Spotted camouflaged pre-production prototypes suggest redesigned lights and bumpers on both front and rear fascia, new-look wheels, and two additional paint colors named orange fury and royal crimson.
Ford will expand the list of extra-cost options with a 10-speed automatic transmission, a dual exhaust system with four exhaust tips, and an adaptive suspension named MagneRide borrowed from an aforementioned GT350.
2018 Ford Mustang Interior
Since the spied prototype was covered with camo-sheets, a little of the cabin interior could be seen. No major changes are expected here, nevertheless, technical upgrades and possible slight changes in the look of the instrument panel opt.
Ford Mustang Specs
Currently, the Ford Mustang’s V-6 engine is restricted to a trim level that doesn’t offer many options, and Ford may kill it off altogether for the 2018 model year according to a forum post on Mustang6G.com. The information supposedly comes from a dealership employee, who perused the 2018 Ford Mustang’s order guide and found that the V-6 engine order code was marked as “invalid.” That means, with the EcoBoost positioned as the entry-level performance counterpart to the GT, the V6 engine is a leftover from a bygone era, mostly doomed to rental fleets.
Considering the EcoBoost is more powerful than the V6 too, the latter seems quite redundant. Those who don’t like the idea of a pony car with a turbo four under the hood will need to step up to the GT model, which will continue to offer a powerful V8.
