The Ford Mustang just got an update for its 2018 model around four years when its sixth generation unit was unveiled in 2013. For a starting price of $25,585, what does the car bring to the table?

Exterior

The Ford Mustang is defined by its muscular frame and wide body. Compared to the fifth generation model, the sixth generation series we have now is wider by 1.5 inches, lower by 1.4 inches and its grille has been revised to a trapezoidal shape.

Looking at the exterior of the 2017 and 2018 models of the car, there were no significant changes in their aesthetics. However, those who wish for their Mustang to stand out more can get the higher trims matched with the optional Performance package of Ford.

Interior

The new Mustang replaced its analog gauges with digital gauges and it got a 12-inch screen. The instrument panel allows the driver to choose from the different drive modes of the auto and other functions. The other interior elements of the 2018 model are the same with the ones found in the 2017 year model.

Engine

The updated Ford Mustang kept its predecessor’s 5.0-liter V8 and 2.3-liter EcoBoost units. The 5.0-liter mill has been reconfigured to produce 460 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque. The rotational speed of the engine was improved to 7,500 rpm. The EcoBoost model is still at 310 hp but the torque has been increased to 350 lb-ft.

The power of the car is distributed via a six-speed manual transmission. The car can be combined with Ford’s new 10-speed automatic too.

Performance

The problem that we usually encountered when test driving an automatic transmission car with so much gears was that it sometimes switched to and fro at the higher gears like it was unsure where to stick. However, the 10-speed unit of the 2018 Mustang felt so smooth. It stuck to where it was supposed to be during the power increments.

The new suspension of the car performed decently. Combined with the Magneride active suspension, the handling of the auto is improved.
