No other vehicle does horsepower quite like the original pony car: the Ford Mustang. For 2018, Ford has refined its latest Mustang powertrain to squeeze out some extra performance during every drive. The standard 2.3-liter EcoBoost® GTDI I-4 engine produces 310 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. Of course, if drivers opt for the Shelby lineup of Mustangs, they will receive a 526-horsepower experience, courtesy of the 5.2-liter Flat Plane Crank V8 engine and TREMEC® six-speed manual transmission.
A winning combination
The Ford Mustang is renowned around the world for its incredible performance, and for good reason. The latest iteration of the Mustang muscle car might just be its most powerful model yet. This is due to a winning combination of powertrain components, including the following standard setup for the 2018 Ford Mustang lineup:
Engine: 2.3-liter EcoBoost® GTDI I-4
Transmission: Six-speed manual transmission
Performance: 310 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque
Features that go the extra mile
Any true performance models needs a rather energetic powertrain if it wants to get ahead. Fortunately for Ford, the Mustang has one of the most energized engines on the market. Nevertheless, Ford still went the extra mile by including a list of features that complement the capabilities of the 2018 Ford Mustang. A leather-wrapped steering wheel helps drivers to masterfully navigate every turn. Plus, no matter what kind of extreme driving you perform with your Mustang, the cabin inside will be a peaceful environment, thanks to Ford’s Active Noise Cancellation.
Performance beyond just power
The 2018 Ford Mustang packs plenty of power under the hood. Of course, no performance vehicle can stand on raw power alone. That’s why Ford has equipped the Mustang with an extensive list of features that highlight its performance. Some of those standard features include:
Active Noise Cancellation
Body-color mirrors with integrated blind spot mirrors
Leather-wrapped steering wheel with cruise and audio controls
Tilt and telescoping steering column
LED Headlamps with LED signature lighting
Six-speaker sound system, AM/FM Stereo with single CD
Protecting you and your ride
For many automakers, their most powerful models are not always their safest vehicles. The story is different for Ford. In fact, the 2018 Ford Mustang is not just the safest Mustang model ever developed, but one of the safest vehicles in Ford’s lineup. That distinction is thanks to the Mustang’s impressive collection of safety and security functions. The SOS Post-Crash Alert System™ takes action in the unfortunate occurrence of an accident, while the SecuriLock® Passive Anti-Theft System makes sure that nobody tries to steal your precious set of wheels.
Tempering pure power with safety
Performance is nothing if it is not properly tempered with safety. This is a philosophy that Ford takes to heart, which is why drivers will discover a rather extensive suite of safety features with every 2018 Ford Mustang model. Included in that standard safety suite are the following features and technologies:
