Unmistakably Mustang. There's nothing like a Mustang. Its fastback silhouette conjures up a deep history of show-stopping design. And yet, the new 2018 Mustang feels incredibly modern. The lowered front hood and new fascia frame new LED lighting. And those design cues flow into the body lines to the back, where its muscular haunch lets everyone else on the road know what just passed.
The cloth convertible top is electrically driven for quick, quiet operation. You can easily open or close it from the driver's seat, thanks to a center latch. And the trunk is large enough to accommodate your golf bag - even with the optional Shaker™ Pro subwoofer.
The Shelby GT350® features the MagneRide® Damping System. It monitors and adjusts itself one thousand times per second, creating a dynamic, adrenaline-fueled driving experience while also producing that signature growl that will leave you breathless. The dual exhaust with electronic valves and quad tips helps maximize the awesome power of the 5.2L V8.
The entire Mustang lineup now features all-LED front lighting that includes signature lighting, low beams, turn signals, projector high beams and available fog lamps. Better yet, the LED headlamps offer a 30 percent reduction in power consumption over the HIDs from the prior model year.
Mustang has 11 beautiful colors to choose from - three new shades and eight classics. The three new hues are Orange Fury Tri-coat, Kona Blue and Royal Crimson Tinted Clearcoat.
There's nothing quite like the throaty growl of a Mustang. That is, unless it's coming from the beautiful dual exhausts with quad tips at the back of a Mustang GT. Thanks to the new optional active performance exhaust, that signature rumble can be a fully variable soundtrack syncing up with your entire acceleration range. Music to our ears.
Talk about an upgrade. The Premium Plus Package, available on EcoBoost® Premium and GT Premium, adds another level of finish to your Mustang. And you'll feel it the moment you slide in - from the heated steering wheel with unique leather, to the color-accented leather-trimmed seats, to the unique color-accented door trim and Linked Graphite aluminum appliqué on the dash. The package also includes the all-new 12-inch LCD digital cluster, as well as hand stitching on the center console, a wrapped knee bolster with accent stitching and shifter boot with stitching.
Performance may already run in its veins, but it's advanced technology that's taking it to a whole new level. Whether it's customizing gauges inside the cockpit, effortlessly spinning those wheels on the track or using your smartphone to seamlessly access your Mustang's vitals, you now have control to tailor your driving experience like never before.
When you get the 12-Inch LCD instrument cluster, you can set your favorite drive settings and the MyMode system will remember them next time you get behind the wheel. That even includes suspension and steering preferences.
Four unique aluminum appliqué panels let you customize even the smallest details in your Mustang. Choose from Silver Arrow, Engine Spun, Angled Brush and Linked Graphite.
The 12-inch LCD instrument cluster is the first all-digital display ever offered on a Mustang. Which means you're in absolute control of everything you see. Customize colors. Choose your gauge layout. Tailor each Selectable Drive Mode to get the most out of your driving experience. It's easy to view, fast and responsive. And, like everything else in this Mustang, absolutely beautiful. Optional on the EcoBoost® Premium and GT Premium.
The 390-watt Shaker Pro Audio System with HD Radio Technology is optional on EcoBoost® Premium and GT Premium models. The audio system includes an AM/FM stereo, single-CD/MP3 player and 12 speakers - one of which is an eight-inch subwoofer smartly mounted in the trunk without sacrificing storage space. Thanks to HD Radio Technology, reception is crystal clear, with no audio distortion, buzz, popping or static.
The new 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission is the best automatic in any Mustang, ever. With a wide-ratio span and optimized gear spacing, this all-new gearbox helps improve responsiveness and performance during acceleration.
Get your daily dose of adrenaline. Performance is at the heart of every Mustang ever built. The unique thrill of opening up on that straight line. The quick and responsive downshift. Tight cornering through a curve on a winding road. Not to mention the legendary power under the hood and that throaty growl that comes with it. You'll get it all and more with the 2018.
The new 2.3L EcoBoost engine continues to show up and perform. This iteration of the proven engine boasts even more torque at 350 lb.-ft. The extra bump in the EcoBoost is all thanks to the transient overboost function, which lifts outputs on every gear change. So you can focus on the rush you get as you step on the gas.
The 5.0L Mustang V8: a legendary engine revamped to get you maximum power. How did we make that happen? By adding a new dual-fuel, high-pressure direct injection and low-pressure port fuel injection. Which not only translates into 460 horsepower, but also higher-rpm power at 420 lb.-ft. of torque. Sounds like a win-win to us.
Launch control integrates the brakes and both traction and powertrain control to help ensure smooth, consistent starts across a broad range of driving conditions. Real-time performance info is displayed through Track Apps® on the in-dash LCD screen. Electronic line-lock, now standard on all models, lets you take your track skills even further. No need to balance one foot on the brake and the other on the gas, or install a mechanical line-lock. This integrated system does the work for you by locking the front brakes and releasing the rear brakes. Those back tires will be spinning and warmed up in no time.
Performance runs in our family. So it's no wonder we borrowed the MagneRide Damping System you'll find in the Shelby GT350® , improved upon it and tuned it specifically for the 2018 Mustang. This system provides lightning-quick responsiveness to changing road conditions. How quick? We're talking 1,000 times per second. That's how fast each damper adjusts automatically, and it's the reason you can count on optimum handling performance.
The integral link independent rear suspension helps minimize body roll and isolate road imperfections for a responsive ride and precise handling. Aluminum-alloy rear knuckles and H-arms help reduce unsprung mass.
Put those beautiful dual exhausts with quad tips to work with the brand-new (and class-exclusive) active valve performance exhaust. This is a fully variable exhaust system, which means you can control the volume of your Mustang's rumble.
This is the ultimate in control when it comes to customizing your Mustang driving experience. Five drive modes - Normal, Snow/Wet, Sport, Track or Drag Strip mode (which is new this year) - let you dial in the dynamics you want. Handling and response times are adjusted based on your selection. All you have to do is flip the toggle switch on the center stack to get what you want.
The straight and narrow is fun for that open-throttle acceleration, but there's nothing like the thrill of powering through a corner with awe-inspiring control. And, of course, the new 2018 Mustang delivers. Through a combo of new shock absorbers, fine-tuned suspensions and innovative technology, it offers up the ultimate fun-to-drive experience with every model.
Includes automatic emergency braking (AEB) and forward collision warning with brake support to alert you if it senses a potential collision with the car in front of you.
Lane-Keeping System detects lane markings and alerts you with gentle vibration pulses on the steering wheel if your vehicle drifts out of its lane.
Alerts you when a vehicle is in your blind spot. When you're slowly backing up, the cross-traffic alert feature is activated - detecting any vehicles passing behind.
Up your street cred with this package, available on GT and GT Premium. You'll get the Brembo™ six-piston front brake calipers with larger rotors and TORSEN limited-slip differential. And that's just for starters.
The glove-box-door-integrated knee airbag is an industry-first safety innovation from Ford. It features an injection-molded airbag integrated into the glove box which weighs less than a typical knee airbag. The dash is moved forward - increasing interior spaciousness while maintaining safety protection.
We teamed front and rear Brembo™ calipers with cross-drilled, two-piece brake rotors - huge 394mm (15.5") rotors up front and 380mm (14.9") rotors in the back.
Every Shelby GT350® comes with its own unique chassis number, which is displayed on the passenger-side instrument panel. The IDC System offers customizable driving preferences that let you dial in the handling dynamics to your liking.
