The 2018 Ford Mustang promises more power and torque with a V8 engine and 460 horses worth of ability to match the 420 lb-ft torque. This year's Mustang is said to offer the best automatic transmission with the optional 10-speed SelectShift that is deemed by many as a complete game-changer.

Ford gives the 2018 Mustang an electronic control system that features real-time shifting algorithms designed to ensure that the right gear is reached every time. The result of such precision is a smoother ride that more efficiently goes from one power stroke to the next.

Trims & Features

The 2018 Ford Mustang is available with the following trims:

  • EcoBoost Fastback
  • EcoBoost Premium Fastback
  • EcoBoost Convertible
  • GT Fastback
  • EcoBoost Premium Convertible
  • GT Premium Fastback
  • GT Premium Convertible
  • Shelby GT350
  • Shelby GT350R

Whereas the EcoBoost Fastback is the beginning trim for those just getting into the Mustang spirit, the Shelby series is the best choice for veteran owners who may be searching for something faster than the ordinary sports car. Mustang is known for its convertible options, which is why the EcoBoost Convertible brand is so revolutionary. Those looking to save money on fuel may be thrilled to learn that it is possible to purchase an eco-friendly vehicle that maintains its power and style.

The 2018 Mustang also has notable amenities that twenty-first-century drivers may enjoy. The damping system that changed the scope of Ford vehicles is available on the Mustang. Perhaps the best thing about this feature is that the sensors attached adjust all four corners of the system independently, which leads to better responsiveness and overall lateral performance. The 2018 Ford Mustang also offers FordPass, which serves as the one-stop app that helps you find better parking and fuel prices throughout the day. You can even lock and unlock your car remotely using the FordPass app.

One of the most celebrated features of Ford is its SYNC 3 system that delivers voice-activated technology at your driving convenience. You can make phone calls and change the radio station with SYNC all while remaining focus on what matters: the road. The feature also lets you find good nearby restaurants and connect your iPhone using Apple Play. Android users can also take advantage of the connecting power as SYNC is compatible with Android Auto as well.
