Yesterday was leaking on video and a few hours later as we see the official Ford Mustang 2018. One of the muscle car par excellence is subject to a face wash to stay the day before the arrival of the next generation. As we see, this update introduces some changes in the outside, but we will also have a greater endowment and technological novelties in the engine range.
If we start on the outside, the new Mustang shows a aspect something more aggressive and dynamic. The main changes are in the front, which presents a hood that is two inches lower and that has new air intakes. The headlights are now more narrow and stylized, while the bumper has been redesigned and the air intakes have a different distribution. At the back there are fewer changes but include the pilots with three vertical bars, now curved, and a new rear spoiler.
If you go on the inside we will see more technology of which we found in its predecessor. The primary example is the digital instrumentation is formed by a screen of 12 inches behind the wheel. This optional element is fully customizable depending on the driving mode you use (Normal, Sport or Track). The multimedia system will be the SYNC 3 and will include driving aids such as the Pre-Collision Assist with pedestrian detection, warning of involuntary change lanes or adaptive cruise control.
Although without a doubt, one of its main novelties is located under the hood. There already we will not go back to see the V6 engine’s maximum torque 3.7-liter and will be two options. Is the engine 2.3 EcoBoost, four-cylinder turbo that promises better performance. Also the powerful V8 engine of 5.0 liters which updates its injection and compression ratio to deliver better performance. Although by the time we do not know the specifications of these mechanics.
Accompanying these engines we will have the classic gearbox six-speed manual, which introduces double clutch and steering wheel bimasa. But one of the big novelties is the incorporation of the automatic transmission 10-speed, which will be available with both mechanical and promises to quickly and accurately. To improve the behavior of the Ford Mustang 2018 will also be available suspension, Magnetic Ride, that is with the optional Performance Package and changes its hardness depending on the ground.
