The Ford Mustang obviously needs no introduction. It has given us five-plus decades of thrilling fun and excitement. Over the years, though, it has seen many changes, and here are some stats on why the 2018 Ford Mustang is worth getting your hands on.
So 17-inch wheels come standard, but be sure and check out the impressive wheel options offered by Ford. From a design standpoint, the Mustang has some subtle changes, but overall it remains pretty sharp. We had upgraded 19-in wheels, but coming standard is LED lighting, a rear spoiler, dual exhausts and yes there is still the convertible option.
350 lb-ft of Torque
You can’t talk about a Mustang and not mention performance. With 350 lb-ft of torque, the 310 horsepower 4-cylinder packs more of a punch than some might expect. Move up to the Mustang GT and the extremely powerful V8 produces a very capable 460 hp.
Now the 6-speed manual is still offered in the Mustang, however the automatic gets an optional all-new 10-speed transmission. It actually gives you better performance, more efficiency and is super smooth.
12-in Instrument Cluster
Inside, an option to consider is the 12-in LCD instrument cluster. It allows you to customize some gauges in the cockpit with colors and layout, which is a pretty cool feature. It’s the first ever all-digital display offered by a Mustang. Also, take a look at the MyMode feature, which will remember your favorite drive settings.
We didn’t feel the Mustang offered a whole lot when it comes to standard safety. There is precollision assist and some other safety technology, but unfortunately you will have to upgrade.
There is no doubt the iconic Mustang will always be a top contender. It continues to evolve as times change and the 2018 Ford Mustang keeps the rich history going strong.
