If you crave the thrill of knowing there’s a hefty stable of horses under your hood as you race around the greater Akron and Cleveland areas, you may appreciate what the 2018 Mustang has to offer. Our team created this 2018 Ford Mustang car review to help Fairlawn area adrenaline seekers get a better idea of what they’re in for when they take this sports car for a spin.
2018 Ford Mustang Powertrain
With the 2018 Mustang, you’ll be treated to two trim-specific engine options. If you opt for the EcoBoost® trim, you’ll get the 2.3L EcoBoost® I-4 engine that generates an impressive 310 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. If you need an even more exhilarating ride, the GT trim comes with a 5.0L V8 engine that packs in 160 horsepower and produces 420 lb-ft of torque.
Drivers can choose between a 6-speed manual transmission for an authentic racetrack experience, or a 10-speed SelectShift® transmission for smooth and efficient shifting that can operate in a limited manual mode when desired.
2018 Mustang: Aggressive Exterior
The 2018 Ford Mustang comes in two different configurations, fastback or convertible. Whichever one you choose, you’ll be treated to a lowered hood and grille that give this sports car a lean and athletic stance. The 2018 model lowers the headlamps as well, for a more intimidating gaze as you stare down your competition.
Make your Mustang your own with 12 different available wheel designs and 11 available exterior colors. Finish it off with an available black, white or silver stripe.
In addition to personalizing the exterior, you also get complete control over the view you get from the cockpit. The 2018 Mustang features an available fully customizable 12-inch LCD all-digital instrument cluster that you can change at-will using the Pony button on the steering wheel.
Choose exactly which virtual gauges, available Track Apps™ and Performance Shift Indicators you see on your display. Once you’ve set the control, use available MyColor® to set the mood with 30 different color options.
You’re also free to save your favorite drive settings, including suspension, steering and exhaust note preferences, when you use the available MyMode. This ensures your drive is fully customized every time you get behind the wheel.
Ford Mustang: Track-Ready Technology
While you’re out burning rubber, your Mustang will be hard at work tracking your performance with available Track Apps®. If you’re working on speed, you’ll like the available Lap Timer that records your lap time and average speed at three separate tracks. You can store up to 100 sessions (that’s 2,500 laps!) using available Track Mode.
If you want to track your acceleration, the Acceleration Timer measures your drag track performance while the Accelerometer measures your latitudinal and longitudinal g-forces.
