Here’s what they are saying about the brand new 2018 Ford Mustang
The current generation of the Ford Mustang was unveiled about three years ago, and it still remains to this day the best-selling model in its segment. Featuring a design that is both retro and modern, and plenty of versions that can meet the needs of any type of buyer, the Mustang is still the legend it always was.
That said, for 2018, Ford’s pony car gets some new features and improvements that make it even more appealing to buyers who want a vehicle with personality. Media members recently had the chance to drive the brand new 2018 Ford Mustang, and this is what they had to say.
2018 Ford Mustang reviews
The 2018 Ford Mustang is an updated version of the current-generation car. Along with some style tweaks to update the exterior, the traditional instrument panel goes fully digital, which will compliment new menu options. Solid upgrades can be found throughout the drivetrain, and an optional active suspension helps drivers keep control.
A 5.0-liter V8 and a 2.3-liter ecoboost power plant are still on offer, but the naturally aspirated V6 has been put out to pasture. The V8 has been reworked to produce 460 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. Its engine speed has been increased as well, and can reach 7,500 rpms. It’s an output that goes to bat against the Chevrolet Camaro’s 6.2-liter V8 that cranks out 455 hp, and the Dodge Challenger’s 6.4-liter V8, which belches out 485 hp. Both the Mustang’s mills can be paired with a six-speed manual transmission, or an all-new 10-speed automatic.
Brand loyalty plays a huge part for fans choosing between muscle cars. Still, we think if you were given the keys to a Mustang for the weekend and directed to some thoroughly twisty roads, you wouldn’t be able to contain your excitement. The 2018 model is fast, reasonably balanced, and has a futuristic cockpit that edges out its peers. - Digital Trends
