Taken from Mustang6g home page." In a welcomed surprise, Ford also appears to be offering the option for MagneRide dampers on both the EcoBoost and Mustang GT which will bring it closer to the handling characteristics of the Shelby GT350.

Interestingly, the options list includes a “Performance Package 2” in addition to the usual GT Performance Package. This package suggests that Ford will offer a more track-focused package for the Mustang GT to more directly compete with the Chevrolet Camaro 1LE package."

Cool Re: 2018............Model year options & colors.

Ford Authority is claiming that the 2018 will get a new 4.8l dual fuel injected engine.According to Ford Authority, "the new Ford 4.8L V8 will provide a higher compression ratio, which in turn would help in generating a better horsepower. The current Ford GT with the coyote engine produces 435 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque. Rumors also suggest the new 4.8L V8 unit will be seen in the latest 2018 Ford Mustang GT and the 2018 Ford F-150. Both the vehicles will render a better and improved performance compared to the existing models and will be equipped with advanced technologies along with an updated exterior design." An unknown Road & Track source/ insider at Ford claims that this may not be the case at all. The 2010 S197 refresh held on to the 4.6l untill the 5.0 was brought back in 2011. They could do this to the refresh 2018 S550 , with the all new engine going into the Mustang GT in 2019. I hope this is not the case. Ford should match the new 10 speed automatic to the new 4.8l with the new suspension and exhaust upgrades for the 2018 model year. Many may dislike seeing the 5.0 leave if this is the case ,but this new engine will out perform the current engine used in the GT. The GM SS Camaro is rated at 455 HP currently. The new Ford engine will probably have a higher HP number than the current 6.2l engine used by GM. The upcoming Detroit auto show should answer all the questions about the refreshed 2018 Mustang line up ...............

Cool Re: 2018............Model year options & colors.

Just revealed today . Notice the changes to the front & rear. Hood bulge is gone & the vents are recessed now as well. New front lights & the rear tail lights are curved with a new spoiler on the GT. The 5.0 badges are shown on the fenders . If the same 5.0 is used from the 2018 F150 it will have, a new **High Pressure Direct Fuel Injection****, coupled with port injection. 12.1 compression ratio, thats more than the Corvette.......

Cool Re: 2018............Model year options & colors.

Seen at the Detroit Auto show today.: ****Confirmed now. Both the 4 & 8 get HP increases & the V6 is gone.*****



The new Mustang is our best ever, based on more than 50 years as one of the iconic sports car in America and now, the world.—Joe Hinrichs, Ford

Today the latest version of Ford’s iconic pony car officially galloped out of the stable with a refreshed look. However, the 2018 Mustang’s beauty is far more than sheetmetal deep as the new look signals a host of performance and technological upgrades sure to have many owners considering an upgrade.
“The new Mustang is our best ever, based on more than 50 years as one of the iconic sports car in America and now, the world,” Joe Hinrichs, president of The Americas, said. “Tapping Mustang’s enormous fan base, we’re bringing the new Mustang straight to the people—and introducing the new car across multiple social media channels, reaching millions.” As predicted, the six-cylinder Mustang is officially dead for 2018. ****Both the 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder and 5.0-liter V8 get increases in horsepower and torque, though Ford hasn't yet specified power output for the updated 'Stang.For 2018, the Mustang GT's 5.0-liter V8 gets both both port and direct fuel injection, similar to the fuel system found in the 3.5-liter V6 in the new F-150 Raptor. This dual-injection system allows Ford to increase the V8's compression ratio from 11.0:1 to 12.0:1, which should aid power and fuel efficiency.*****
Along with the new look there are 12 available wheel options and some new exterior colors, including the signature color, Orange Fury. (Photo Credit: Ford Motor Company)From the pillars forward the Mustang exterior features a lower, sleeker hood and revised front grilles, and new LED front lights—including low beams, turn signals, projector high beams, signature lighting and available fog lamps—across all models. Likewise the rear taillights are revised LED units, which, along with a new bumper, fascia and optional wing, set the 2018 apart from its predecessor.

Fresh styling is great, but those reading this page want to know about the changes that will give the latest pony a faster pace. As expected, Ford is being coy about the upgrades and the updated specs. You can expect those to trickle out leading up to the 2018 Mustang hitting dealer lots this fall.
"2018" 53 YEARS OF MUSTANG.............

Cool Re: 2018............Model year options & colors.

A 10 speed automatic 2018 Mustang with paddle shifters can now receive the PP option with the bigger brakes & 373 gears that was sold in Europe only. Add the actuated exhaust & a toned down GT350 version suspension to it as well. The new digital dash & heated steering wheel are options as well, if you want it. 12 different wheel options in the MY.Plus many more options to customize this new refreshed model..................

At first glance I wasn't a fan of the styling update, but it's slowly growing on me. I wonder what the new power numbers are. The magnetic suspension is a nice update.

I really like he new dash, but I wonder what the longevity of an all digital screen will be like. I have the same concerns of all the screens in my wife's 2013 Fusion.

The new technology aspect in this Mustang is sweet. As they say on CNET, "Let's check the tech".

Taken from Mustang 6g.com.
2018 Mustang offers an EcoBoost and GT model only. V6 is gone.
All models get revised shocks, increased lateral stiffness, and revised stabilizer bars (base suspension improvements said to be on par with the previous optional performance suspension)
MagneRide adaptive dampers available on both EcoBoost and GT Performance Packs (will be matched with and tuned for, less spring compared to GT350's MagneRide suspension)
5.0-liter V8 and 2.3-liter EcoBoost will both get power increases (exact HP/TQ increases not yet released). Expect the EcoBoost to receive more torque and the GT to get an increase in both horsepower and torque.
Performance Package available on automatic and/or convertible Mustangs (no need to choose anymore)
The 2018 Mustang GT gets an updated 5.0-liter Coyote V8 with both port and direct fuel injection which allows Ford to increase the V8's compression ratio from 11.0:1 to 12.0:1.
Available six-speed manual transmission for both GT and EcoBoost (with twin-disc clutch and new dual mass flywheel on the Mustang GT)
10-speed optional automatic transmission available for both models - shorter first gear and wider overall gear spread compared to the outgoing auto. Will stay in first gear for extra hard launches. Selecting Sport and Track mode will lock out 10th gear and hold gears for longer
GT Performance Package receives Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires
EcoBoost Performance Package retains Pirelli P-Zeros
Mustang GT gets optional active exhaust
10 new wheel designs, 12 in total, including several wheels that are stand-alone options.
On sale in North America in Fall 2017
Pricing for the base four-cylinder model likely to remain close to the 2017 Mustang EcoBoost $27,095 MSRP while the GT should add approximately $500-$1000 on top of the current $34,095 MSRP.

Cosmetic changes:
Refined aerodynamics to reduce coefficient drag and better balance lift at high speeds
New headlights with revised boomerang LED shark gills
Redesigned front bumper
20mm lowered vented hood
Wider front grille
New lower rear diffuser with black finish
New C-Shaped rear light clusters
New decklid wing on Performance Package models

Interior/Technology
New 12-inch all-digital instrument cluster with 3 modes (Normal, Sport, Track) replaces analog speedo and tachometer
Mustang MyMode with memory function saves favorite drive settings including suspension, steering preferences, active exhaust valve behavior, and other preferences. Selectable with the steering wheel controls and the main gauge display.
Track Apps improved to deliver virtual time slips after acceleration runs
Pre-Collision Assist with pedestrian detect, distance alert, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, driver alert system and forward-facing camera
Ford SYNC Connect with FordPass to start, lock, unlock and locate your car
Center console adds new hand-stitched wrap with contrast stitching and padded knee bolsters
Door handles, rings and bezels are finished in aluminum.
Restyled seating surfaces feature new patterns and color choices (premium-trim seats get blue or red accent trimming)
Instrument panel with updated Mustang badge
Optional heated steering wheel
New key fob design

Mustang EcoBoost New Features
Limited-duration overboost function adds more torque
Revised shocks, increased lateral stiffness, and revised stabilizer bars
MagneRide damper technology optional on Performance Package
6-speed manual transmission upgraded for optimal torque
New 10-speed automatic transmission for quicker shift times, better low-speed tip-in response and reduced friction losses
Standard dual-tip exhaust
All-LED front lights including signature lighting, low-beams, turn signals, efficient projector high-beams and available fog lamps.
Available performance spoiler

Mustang GT New Features
More powerful and revs higher (full details yet to be released)
New and revised Coyote 5.0-liter V8 with dual-fuel, high-pressure direct injection and low-pressure port fuel injection delivers robust low-end torque, high-rpm power, and improved fuel efficiency. Mustang chief engineer Carl Widmann states that the only truly carryover piece from the current 5.0-liter is the crankshaft.
Optional active valve exhaust system with fully variable soundtrack to match entire acceleration range
Comparing pre-recorded exhaust sound tracks (at the private event), the valves produce a louder and more metallic snarl across the rpm range
Revised shocks, increased lateral stiffness, and revised stabilizer bars
MagneRide damper technology optional on Performance Package
6-speed manual transmission upgraded for optimal torque. Totally redesigned to include twin-disc clutch and dual-mass flywheel to increase torque capability and more efficient clutch modulation (increases compression ratio from 11.0:1 to 12.0:1)
New 10-speed automatic transmission for quicker shift times, better low-speed tip-in response and reduced friction losses
Standard quad-tip exhaust
All-LED front lights including signature lighting, low-beams, turn signals, efficient projector high-beams and available fog lamps.
Available performance spoiler
GT Performance Package receives Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires

Performance Notes:
The GT Performance Pack with MagneRide should be faster than the 2012-2013 Mustang Boss 302.

Available Colors:
NL Orange Fury (New)
R3 Royal Crimson (New)
L6 Kona Blue (New)
G1 Shadow Black
H3 Triple Yellow
