2018 Ford Mustang
New Mustang was released in 2015 and all lovers of this legendary pony car gone crazy about it. Nevertheless, it doesn’t mean that company is stopping with development of the vehicle, since there are rumors about new car. For mid-cycle refreshment, new transmission should be major change. A 10-speed gearbox could take place at many Ford vehicles as soon as it is developed, and one of these should be 2018 Ford Mustang. Other modifications are cosmetic and minor comparing to latest additions. We still don’t know about other Mustang versions, will they be released in 2018 or later, but probably we are going to see Shelby and GT models.
2018 Ford Mustang engine
Under the hood of the 2018 Ford Mustang should be the same unit used for current vehicle. That means car is getting 3.7-l V6 with output probably close to 300 hp. Nevertheless, 2.3-l turbo-charged four-cylinder unit and 5.0-l V8 drivetrain for top level models are also in the mix. As we already said, company announced switch from 6-speed transmission to brand new system with 10 gears. Maximum horsepower comes from V8 unit, so now we can expect Mustang to reach 450 hp. New transmission could bring slight improvement in performance, especially in mileage. Fuel economy never was a worry for company, since highlight of the muscle car was huge power output, which means more fuel to be drought. Now, 20 mpg combined could be slightly improved, but nothing radical which could lead to waste of horsepower and torque.
2018 Ford Mustang models
Now only 2018 Ford Mustang is going to be released during next year. We could see some other models using innovations already in 2017. Experts are predicting that Bose 302 could be the first car coming after base Mustang. Also 302R model is being part of the rumors, but Shelby GT500 is likely to arrive somewhere at same time. Nevertheless, their premiere could be left for 2018, with other versions, including standard GT and Ford Mustang Mach. It will be very exciting to see all these models performing with new gearbox, which is only significant upgrade for this mid-cycle refreshment. New generation of Mustang should come in 2020 or even later.
