Ford reveals 2018 Mustang!
Arriving in Spring 2018, Ford have revealed an updated Mustang in European spec during the Frankfurt Motor Show that takes place today. The Mustang has been tuned to suit European tastes, contrasting to the US spec version of the car. More power, more refinement and more Mustang has been promised by Ford.
Ford have made changes to the front end of the Mustang, a more aggressive bonnet line and grille have been added to improve the aerodynamics. The headlights are a similar shape to previous models but appear slimmer and with distinctive new indicators. As well as this, Ford have introduced thin, rectangular fog lamp clusters that sit nicely in the new front bumper.
Subtle changes have been made around the back where a new rear spoiler sits on top of the bootlid. C-Shaped taillights have also been added to the mix which sit in the familiar black housing that stretches across the rear. Three new bold colours have been added – Kona Blue, Orange Fury and Royal Crimson. If you’d like to style your Mustang even more, Ford are offering three finishes of 19-inch alloy wheel – Nickel, Ebony Black and Polished Aluminium.
The interior design remains fairly similar however a new optional 12-inch LCD digital instrument cluster is available with customisable layouts. Soft-touch materials have been added to the doors and heated and cooled leather seats are offered across the range. For the first in the Mustang, semi-autonomous driver assists appear which includes Pre Collision Assist with pedestrian detection, Lane Keeping Aid, Lane Keeping Alert plus a Driver Alert system.
Ford have continued to off the Mustang GT with two power units with the 5.0 litre V8 in the GT and the 2.3 litre four-cylinder Ecoboost. A standard active exhaust system on the V8 engine has been added which gives the driver a ‘Good Neighbour Mode’ to limit the noise when starting the Mustang. In addition to these changes, Ford have added a six-speed manual gearbox that has been tweaked to optimise torque on both models. A 10-speed automatic gearbox is an option which will be replacing the 6-speed automatic.
