But to keep you excited for this prolific muscle car, we’re going to let you in on what we know about the 2018 Mustang. 

We’ll give you a glimpse of the 2018 Ford Mustang and some of its new features. We’ll be focusing our undivided attention on the engine options and performance updates, and even the newly designed body. This article will help keep you in suspense until the 2018 Ford Mustang release date.

Engine Options & Performance Updates

The Ford Mustang has always been regarded as a performance-based vehicle. Over the years, it has featured many different options for drivers who are looking for a little more boost in their overall performance. The 2018 Ford Mustang provides plenty of options for drivers to choose from to maximize their power.

  • The 2.3L EcoBoost® engine got an update, and is expected to surpass the 310 horsepower abilities of last year’s version.
  • The powerful 5.0L V8 was also updated from the 435 horsepower-capable engine from the 2017 model.
  • Ford upgraded the manual transmissions for optimal performance, but there’s also an optional 10-speed automatic that drivers can choose for their Ford Mustang.

2018 Ford Mustang Design & Body Updates

The Ford Mustang has been a household name since the 1968 film Bullitt, starring Steve McQueen. Since then, muscle car enthusiasts have widely regarded the Ford Mustang as a great mix of power and style. However, the 2018 Ford Mustang and its design received a few tweaks for aesthetics and even performance purposes.

  • The front hood and grille of the 2018 Ford Mustang received an updated design to not only add to the sporty aesthetics, but also to improve aerodynamics to help boost performance.
  • The 2.3L EcoBoost® engine comes with a dual-tip exhaust, and the 5.0L V8 features the quad-tip exhaust that increases the athletic appearance, but also adds a guttural growl when the vehicle is being pushed to its peak.
  • The sleek new design adds a few new twists, but its overall body is a pleasant homage to the vehicle’s humble beginnings.
