You don't really NEED the 2018 Ford Mustang, but why wait?

What's New for the 2018 Ford Mustang?

It's only been a few years since the Ford Mustang underwent a complete redesign that put it back in touch with its sports car past. This year the model experienced a refreshing. The 2018 Ford Mustang has an exterior that's a little more angular in its face and bumper while the hood is more aerodynamic. These aren't changes the untrained eye will consciously notice, but the Mustang feels a little leaner, a little more alert, more primed for action.

2018 Mustang Power and Performance

That being said, the biggest changes for the 2018 Ford Mustang lie under the hood. The former base V-6 engine is no more, having been replaced by the turbocharged 2.3L 4 cyl. Ecoboost engine, which produces 310 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. Meanwhile, the 5.0L V-8 engine got a power increase and now delivers 460 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque. The new transmission in both engines is now a ten-speed automatic.

In other words, the Ford Mustang is more powerful than ever. It easily delivers more power than anyone will actually use off the Autobahn.

2018 Mustang Interior and Tech

The Mustang seats four people but don't expect much from the back seats. It's a sports car, not a luxury sedan. But those up front will experience comfort. Drivers familiar with the model will also notice the new customizable 12-inch digital instrument cluster. It's sleek and futuristic and makes the whole cabin feel cutting edge.

There's also standard tech features like MyKey for teen drivers, Bluetooth, two USB ports, a six-speaker audio system, and the Sync voice-controlled connectivity system. Available features include navigation, a 12-speaker Shaker audio system, satellite radio, and intuitive Sync 3 infotainment system with 8-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto.

2018 Mustang Pricing and Trims

Luckily for you, one of the best muscle cars on the market is also one of the most affordable. But buying this car isn't exactly a necessity, so climb as high in the trims as you can afford or stomach. The thrills only get bigger the higher you go.

The 2018 Ford Mustang Coupe starts at $26,500. Right out of the gate, you get a killer engine and 6-speed manual transmission. You can get the 10-speed automatic for $1600 more. If you opt for the Mustang Convertible instead be prepared to pay at least $5,500 more. The top-of-the-line is the Shelby GT350R, which starts at $65,000. It comes with the 526-horsepower V8 engine, Recaro sport seats, Brembo brakes, and the MagneRide damping system. That's more muscle than you'll ever need, but the Mustang as a whole is more than you need and all that you want.
