2018 Ford Mustang – Exterior
EXTERIOR DESIGN OVERVIEW
Unmistakably Mustang. There’s nothing like a Mustang. Its fastback silhouette conjures up a deep history of show-stopping design. And yet, the new 2018 Mustang feels incredibly modern. The lowered front hood and new fascia frame new LED lighting. And those design cues flow into the body lines to the back, where its muscular haunch lets everyone else on the road know what just passed.
The cloth convertible top is electrically driven for quick, quiet operation. You can easily open or close it from the driver’s seat, thanks to a center latch. And the trunk is large enough to accommodate your golf bag – even with the optional Shaker™ Pro subwoofer.
LEGENDARY PERFORMANCE. FUTURISTIC TECH.
The Shelby GT350® features the MagneRide® Damping System. It monitors and adjusts itself one thousand times per second, creating a dynamic, adrenaline-fueled driving experience while also producing that signature growl that will leave you breathless. The dual exhaust with electronic valves and quad tips helps maximize the awesome power of the 5.2L V8.
LED FRONT LIGHTING
The entire Mustang lineup now features all-LED front lighting that includes signature lighting, low beams, turn signals, projector high beams and available fog lamps. Better yet, the LED headlamps offer a 30 percent reduction in power consumption over the HIDs from the prior model year.
GT DUAL EXHAUST WITH QUAD TIPS
There’s nothing quite like the throaty growl of a Mustang. That is, unless it’s coming from the beautiful dual exhausts with quad tips at the back of a Mustang GT. Thanks to the new optional active performance exhaust, that signature rumble can be a fully variable soundtrack syncing up with your entire acceleration range. Music to our ears.
2018 Ford Mustang – Interior
INTERIOR INNOVATION OVERVIEW
Talk about an upgrade. The Premium Plus Package, available on EcoBoost® Premium and GT Premium, adds another level of finish to your Mustang. And you’ll feel it the moment you slide in – from the heated steering wheel with unique leather, to the color-accented leather-trimmed seats, to the unique color-accented door trim and Linked Graphite aluminum appliqué on the dash. The package also includes the all-new 12-inch LCD digital cluster, as well as hand stitching on the center console, a wrapped knee bolster with accent stitching and shifter boot with stitching.
THE MOST ADVANCED MUSTANG EVER
Performance may already run in its veins, but it’s advanced technology that’s taking it to a whole new level. Whether it’s customizing gauges inside the cockpit, effortlessly spinning those wheels on the track or using your smartphone to seamlessly access your Mustang’s vitals, you now have control to tailor your driving experience like never before.
When you get the 12-Inch LCD instrument cluster, you can set your favorite drive settings and the MyMode system will remember them next time you get behind the wheel. That even includes suspension and steering preferences.
ENGINE SPUN ALUMINUM INSTRUMENT PANEL APPLIQUE
Four unique aluminum appliqué panels let you customize even the smallest details in your Mustang. Choose from Silver Arrow, Engine Spun, Angled Brush and Linked Graphite.
12-INCH LCD DIGITAL INSTRUMENT CLUSTER WITH MYCOLOR®
The 12-inch LCD instrument cluster is the first all-digital display ever offered on a Mustang. Which means you’re in absolute control of everything you see. Customize colors. Choose your gauge layout. Tailor each Selectable Drive Mode to get the most out of your driving experience. It’s easy to view, fast and responsive. And, like everything else in this Mustang, absolutely beautiful. Optional on the EcoBoost® Premium and GT Premium.
SHAKER™ PRO AUDIO WITH HD RADIO™ TECHNOLOGY
The 390-watt Shaker™ Pro Audio System with HD Radio™ Technology is optional on EcoBoost® Premium and GT Premium models. The audio system includes an AM/FM stereo, single-CD/MP3 player and 12 speakers – one of which is an eight-inch subwoofer smartly mounted in the trunk without sacrificing storage space. Thanks to HD Radio™ Technology, reception is crystal clear, with no audio distortion, buzz, popping or static.
10-SPEED SELECTSHIFT® AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
The new 10-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission is the best automatic in any Mustang, ever. With a wide-ratio span and optimized gear spacing, this all-new gearbox helps improve responsiveness and performance during acceleration.
2018 Ford Mustang – Performance
Get your daily dose of adrenaline. Performance is at the heart of every Mustang ever built. The unique thrill of opening up on that straight line. The quick and responsive downshift. Tight cornering through a curve on a winding road. Not to mention the legendary power under the hood and that throaty growl that comes with it. You’ll get it all and more with the 2018.
The new 2.3L EcoBoost® engine continues to show up and perform. This iteration of the proven engine boasts even more torque at 350 lb.-ft. The extra bump in the EcoBoost® is all thanks to the transient overboost function, which lifts outputs on every gear change. So you can focus on the rush you get as you step on the gas.
The 5.0L Mustang V8: a legendary engine revamped to get you maximum power. How did we make that happen? By adding a new dual-fuel, high-pressure direct injection and low-pressure port fuel injection. Which not only translates into 460 horsepower, but also higher-rpm power at 420 lb.-ft. of torque. Sounds like a win-win to us.
LAUNCH CONTROL AND ELECTRONIC LINE-LOCK
Launch control integrates the brakes and both traction and powertrain control to help ensure smooth, consistent starts across a broad range of driving conditions. Real-time performance info is displayed through Track Apps® on the in-dash LCD screen. Electronic line-lock, now standard on all models, lets you take your track skills even further. No need to balance one foot on the brake and the other on the gas, or install a mechanical line-lock. This integrated system does the work for you by locking the front brakes and releasing the rear brakes. Those back tires will be spinning and warmed up in no time.
MAGNERIDE® DAMPING SYSTEM
Performance runs in our family. So it’s no wonder we borrowed the MagneRide® Damping System you’ll find in the Shelby GT350® , improved upon it and tuned it specifically for the 2018 Mustang. This system provides lightning-quick responsiveness to changing road conditions. How quick? We’re talking 1,000 times per second. That’s how fast each damper adjusts automatically, and it’s the reason you can count on optimum handling performance.
INDEPENDENT REAR SUSPENSION
The integral link independent rear suspension helps minimize body roll and isolate road imperfections for a responsive ride and precise handling. Aluminum-alloy rear knuckles and H-arms help reduce unsprung mass.
DUAL EXHAUST WITH QUAD TIPS
The 2018 Mustang GT with dual exhaust with quad tips can be equipped with the available Active Valve Performance Exhaust System.
SELECTABLE DRIVE MODES
This is the ultimate in control when it comes to customizing your Mustang driving experience. Five drive modes – Normal, Snow/Wet, Sport, Track or Drag Strip mode (which is new this year) – let you dial in the dynamics you want. Handling and response times are adjusted based on your selection. All you have to do is flip the toggle switch on the center stack to get what you want.
2018 Ford Mustang – Safety
The straight and narrow is fun for that open-throttle acceleration, but there’s nothing like the thrill of powering through a corner with awe-inspiring control. And, of course, the new 2018 Mustang delivers. Through a combo of new shock absorbers, fine-tuned suspensions and innovative technology, it offers up the ultimate fun-to-drive experience with every model.
THE GT PERFORMANCE PACKAGE
Up your street cred with this package, available on GT and GT Premium. You’ll get the Brembo™ six-piston front brake calipers with larger rotors and TORSEN limited-slip differential. And that’s just for starters.
