2018 Ford Mustang revealed

Ford has revealed the updated Mustang in European spec at Frankfurt, which it says has been tuned to suit European tastes compared to the US spec version of the car. 

Mehshekan: according to Auto Express, The 2018 car gets tweaked looks, suspension upgrades and engine revisions, with the 5.0-litre boosted from 412bhp to 443bhp, and the 2.3-litre dropping from 313bhp to 286bhp. 


But it’s expected to be faster and more frugal; Ford offers both motors with its new 10-speed auto, and despite the drop in power the firm says that the 2.3-litre Mustang is now more responsive under acceleration. A six-speed manual gearbox is still standard fit, but has also been updated.

The fresh cabin has digital dials, plus there are new driver assist features and an active exhaust. Under the skin, new MagneRide suspension and selectable driving modes are set up specifically for European roads, while LED lights have also been introduced. 


 New 2018 Ford Mustang: design

With its 2018 model year update, Ford has introduced a new look for its pony car alongside a power boost and new cabin technology.

The tweaks are minor but certainly noticeable. The 2018 model year Ford Mustang GT gets revised face, sporting a new angular front bumper with a new chin spoiler and a slimmer lower air intake, flanked by two new triangular air intakes. The bonnet sits a little lower, creating a sleeker front fascia.

The car’s headlights have also been tweaked. The new units are a similar shape, but slimmer and with distinctive new indicators. New thin, rectangular fog lamp clusters sit in the new front bumper. 

Around the back a new rear spoiler sits atop the boot lid, it’s part of the Performance Pack. New C-shaped taillights sit in the familiar black housing stretching across the rear of the car. A new, lower black diffuser lies beneath the rear bumper, home to a duet or quartet of exhaust tips.

In terms of engines Ford will continue to offer the Mustang GT with two power units in the UK – the 5.0-litre V8 in the GT and the 2.3-litre four-cylinder Eco boost in the entry level model.

It’ll be joined by a standard active exhaust system on the V8 engined car, which boasts a Good Neighbor Mode to limit the amount of noise made on start up. 

The gearbox line-up has been changed too. The six-speed manual has been tweaked for optimal torque for both models, and on the V8 it gets a new dual-plate clutch. As rumored, a new 10-speed automatic gearbox is now an option, replacing the six-speed auto complete with steering wheel mounted paddles.

The 2018 model year Mustang also gets new shock absorbers, and MagneRide dampers now make the options list as part of the Performance Package.

In the cabin the car’s interior remains the same, with the exception of a new optional extra in the infotainment department. A new 12-inch LCD digital instrument cluster is available with customizable layouts, replacing the traditional analogue dials.

A new My Mode function allows drivers to save their favorite driving setups, and semi-autonomous driver assists appear on the Mustang for the first time, including Pre Collision Assist with pedestrian detection, Lane Keeping Aid, Lane Keeping Alert plus a Driver Alert system. Adaptive cruise control is offered too.
