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

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
J7 Magnetic Metallic
N6 Lightning Blue
