Ford has unveiled the US specifications of the facelifted 2018 Mustang. The new car gets an updated front fascia with a lower bonnet, slimmer head lamps, a revised angular front bumper and reshaped air intakes. At the rear, there’s a redesigned spoiler on the boot, new C-shaped tail lights and a lower diffuser beside the exhausts.
The 5.0-litre V8 powertrain under the hood of the new Mustang now makes 454bhp with 569Nm of torque, while power for the 2.3-litre four-cylinder EcoBoost version increases to 306bhp. Likewise, the six-speed manual transmission on both versions has been reworked for better torque delivery, and the V8 now comes with a new dual-plate clutch. Plus, an optional new 10-speed automatic transmission replaces the earlier six-speed auto. Also finding its way into the 2018 Mustang are the MagneRide dampers which will be a part of the Performance Package.
While the new car’s interiors are largely the same, a new 12-inch LCD digital instrument cluster has now been incorporated and it replaces the traditional analogue units. A new feature called MyMode lets users save their favourite driving setups too. For the first time, the 2018 Mustang will also get a few semi-autonomous driver aides such as lane keeping aid with alert, a driver alert system, and pre-collision assist with pedestrian detection.
