What's New for the 2018 Ford Mustang?

The 2018 Ford Mustang received its first major makeover since the carmaker brought out an all new version in 2015.

When you take a peek at the back, you'll see updated LED tail lights and a spiffy new rear end. To increase the styling of the 2018 Mustang, Ford added quad exhaust tips to the GT. There's also new paint colors, new stripe options and more wheel choices.

Trims & Features

For the 2018 Mustang, Ford is offering seven different trim levels that range from the base trim to the GT Premium Convertible. The vehicle model's base level features EcoBoost technology to give you 25 miles per gallon in the category of fuel economy. This model comes with rear-wheel drive, and it has a six-speed manual transmission. It also includes entertainment features like audio controls that are mounted to the steering wheel and a main touchscreen monitor.

If you go for one of the Mustang's premium models, then you'll enjoy a more powerful engine, one that will deliver around 19 to 20 miles per gallon when it comes to fuel economy. The vehicle's premium models are also rear-wheel drive, but you can get one that has a 10-speed automatic transmission and overdrive.

Ford is offering packages with its Mustangs. Options include the enhanced security package, which comes with an anti-theft system and a wheel locking kit. To upgrade your ride even more, you can request the black accent package. This equips your sports car with ebony black-painted aluminum wheels as well as 19-inch tires. You'll also get a black Decklid spoiler and black pony badges.

Horsepower

Ford got rid of the V-6 engine for its 2018 Mustang, but the car company did upgrade this year's model to deliver more power and better fuel economy. Ford updated the Mustang's six-speed manual in both of the vehicle's engines while the V-8 models received a dual-mass flywheel and a twin-disc clutch to give the car better torque capability. Ford also replaced the six-speed automatic with the 10-speed automatic.

Safety

Both also received a "good" rating for head restraints and seats.
