 2018 Ford Mustang Specs, Horsepower, & Features -  2018 Ford Mustang Specs, Horsepower, & Features

2018 brought a lot of new changes from 2017, most notably a facelift by lowering the hood to increase the Mustang's aerodynamics! The 2018 Mustang suspended the 3.7L V6 engine and welcomed the 2.3L Ecoboost I-4 engine that provided significant performance advantages. With this new engine lineup, the new 10-speed automatic transmission had arguably provided the best automatic transmission driving in the history of the Mustang at that time. This was due to the improved responsiveness and overall performance.

One of the most well-loved technology additions to the 2018 Mustang was that it was the first Ford vehicle to include a 12-inch all-digital LCD screen in its dashboard. Some additional technology features are as follows:

  • Personalized instrument cluster, suspension, and steering preferences.
  • Ford SYNC® Connect with FordPass™.
  • Pre-Collision Assist with pedestrian detection, distance alert, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist and Driver Alert System.
  • Customizable engine note.

2018 Mustang News & Updates


2018 FORD MUSTANG FIRST LOOK VIDEO

Date Created: 1/16/2017
2018 Ford Mustang Revealed - 2018 Ford Mustang Revealed

The 2018 Mustang video has been released, and it looks like Ford has been busy adding some new styling cues to the S550 body style. Not only the front end but the rear got a make-over as well. We dive in and look a little closer at the redesign and let you know our thoughts on the new 2018 Mustang.

Confirmed Updates!

Today, the 2018 Mustang was released by Ford Motor Company, and it did not disappoint. Here is a list of the major 2018 Mustang differences.

  • Ford Dropping The V6 Motor. V8 & Ecoboost Motors Available Only.
  • Upgraded 5.0 & 2.3 Motors.
  • Redesigned Fuel Delivery System. Port & Direct Injection.
  • Higher Revving V8
  • Quad Exhaust Replaces Iconic Dual Exhaust
  • Optional Variable Exhaust
  • Upgraded 6 Speed Manual Transmission & 10 Speed Automatic Transmissions Offered
  • Current GT350 Clutch & Dual Mass Flywheel Will Be Used
  • Optional Electronically Adjustable Magnetorheological Dampers (Like The Current GT350)
  • Retuned Dampers, New Anti-Roll Bars, & A Cross Axis Joint In The Rear Suspension
  • Padded Knee Bolsters
  • Soft Touch Upper Door Panels
  • Optional Heated Steering Wheel
  • Redesigned 12" Digital Cluster (Three Viewing Modes: Normal, Sport, and Track. Normal largely mimics the look of the analog cluster, Sport elongates the tachometer to put higher revs at the top, and Track mode eliminates the analog speedometer and tachometer designs, replacing the latter unit with a longitudinal setup at the top of the cluster.) (via Car & Driver)
  • Pre-Collision System

    Newly Redesigned Headlights

    The most distinguished new styling has to be the redesigned front end. Starting with the headlights, you immediately see a difference. The headlights are seemingly shorter and more square compared to the sleek, stealthy look of the 2015-2017 headlights. The headlights look to have a similar HID setup that is more pronounced with a larger chrome surround. The LED accent bars in the headlights also look to have taken a redesign going to a more angled look, and might be grouped closer together. There is also an odd opening at the bottom that we are not quite sure could be, but we look forward to hearing about why this was added. The last and most important part is the overall shape. The shape of the light has changed dramatically, going from a teardrop style to a boxier look.

    Newly Redesigned Front Bumper

    The 2015 Mustang was already a huge shock to the Mustang world with its Euro-styled front end, but the 2018 Mustang looks like it makes ruffle a few feathers as well. Ford has ditched their earlier fog light design and replaced it with what looks like maybe vents (we are hoping for something cool like brake coolers). The side markers look to have gotten a little larger and more pronounced. The biggest change we can see is the front grille. It looks Ford may have borrowed some styling cues from the Fusion and brought the grille material closer to the edge of the bumper as well.

    Dual Extractor Hood

    From the video, we may see a wider, more distinctive heat extractor hood. The 2015 Mustang had already gotten sleeker heat extractors compared to the 2013-2014 body style, but these seem to be much wider and sleeker.

    Small Changes To The Rear

    The most exciting thing we have noticed is the standard issue quad-tip exhaust offered on GT models! This is a great feature as it was a popular upgrade for many Mustang owners. The 2018 Mustang taillights have gotten a small tweak as well. From what we can see, they have more of an angle. A big change that caught our eye is the new rear spoiler. In the past, Ford has always done a two-post or fully attached "duck tail" spoiler (Cobra, Saleen), but it looks like they may be venturing into a new style, possibly a 4 post?

    Wrapping It All Up

    While the 2018 Mustang video has left us with many questions to answer, we are more than excited to get our hands on one and start some testing. In the meantime, keep it right here with the real Mustang enthusiasts, LMR.com.



    2018 MUSTANG UNDERCARRIAGE PICS

    Date Created: 8/21/2017

    Mustang6G.com member "wholesale" posted these photos late Sunday of the undercarriage of the 2018 Mustang that was on display at the Woodward Dream Cruise. We are excited to see a few changes from the previous years and some features carried over from the GT350, such as the composite oil pan. The active exhaust is also visible and raises questions about owners swapping out their exhaust for aftermarket exhaust kits. All in all, it seems that 2018 will not be completely different, and we cannot wait to get our hands on one!

    2018 FORD MUSTANG GT PERFORMANCE PACK LEVEL 2

    Date Created: 10/24/2017

    With the ever-growing aftermarket support for the Ford Mustang, it's no surprise that Ford has taken note and has added the most popular modifications to their Performance Pack options. The 2018 Mustang GT is no different with the addition of the Performance Pack Level 2 option.

    The 2018 Mustang Performance Pack Level 2 is a $6,500 option added to your new S550. It includes track-tested performance upgrades and gives your Mustang a great new look with its upgraded wheels and suspension.

    The 2018 Mustang GT Performance Pack Level 2 Includes:

    • All Of The Performance Pack Level 1 Upgrades
      • Unique Chassis & Anti-Lock Brake Tuning
      • Unique Stability Control
      • Electric Power Assisted Steering
      • Unique Stability Control
      • Brembo Six Piston Front Brake Calipers w/ Larger Rotors
      • K Brace
      • Larger Radiator
      • Silver Painted Strut Tower Brace
      • Torsen Differential w/ 3.73 Axle Ratio
    • Lower Stance
    • Redesigned Front Splitter/Rear Spoiler
    • Split-Fitment Aluminum Wheels (19x10.5" Front & 19x11" Rear)
    • 305/30/19 Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 Tires
    • Custom Tuned MagneRide Dampers
    • Quicker Steering Calibration
    • 67% Stiffer Rear Stabilizer Bar
    • 12% Stiffer Front Stabilizer Bar
    • 20% Stiffer Front Springs
    • 13% Stiffer Rear Springs

    Created in secret, this Performance Pack Level 2 option was developed on and off the track for real-world testing. This achieved better aerodynamic scores with the larger and lower front splitter and redesigned rear spoiler. The engineers at Ford attached a Boss 302 splitter to the underside of the front to provide a 3" larger surface area, which helped create about 24 pounds of downforce at 80mph. This and the added rear spoiler helped give the 2018 Mustang better grip and handling on the track.

    While most of the Performance Pack Level 2 upgrades are just that, performance, there were a few minor upgrades to the exterior. The exclusive 10-spoke Dark Tarnish wheels and tire spats are the most noticeable at first glance. Looking a little closer, you will also notice some black detailing on the splitter and spoiler. When ordering, you will have the chance to select Recaro seats in leather or cloth to provide a comfortable cockpit in your new S550

    Overall, the Level 2 performance pack looks to be a pretty promising upgrade for new 2018 Mustangs. This also poses the question of what aftermarket companies will do as Ford lessens the need for upgrading your car. Only time will tell, and we are anxious to see how far the Ford engineers will push the next-level Mustang!
