The all-new 2018 Mustang GT has the looks, sound, and performance to help attract nearly anyone’s attention. While building the new and improved Mustang, Ford made subtle changes throughout the car in all areas including the most obvious, the front fascia. The updated headlights give the front-end an entirely new look, while still maintaining that Mustang vibe. As you begin to walk around the Kona Blue Metallic car, you start to notice that the same shape has been used and the rear end nearly looks identical to the untrained eye.
Pop the hood, and you’ll notice the same engine that can be found in the last few models but has been “re-tuned” with more horsepower and torque. The five liter V8 puts out 460 horsepower and 420lb-ft of torque. When paired with the 10-speed automatic transmission, you are able to put down all that power while still maintaining decent gas mileage. The new Mustang gets up to 16 mpg city and 25 mpg highway.
The interior has a similar feel but features a few noticeable differences. The example we test drove happened to be a Premium, so the interior had a few updates. The seats were very nicely trimmed in leather to match the leather-wrapped steering wheel. The steering wheel tilted and adjusted to my liking, and the infotainment system was very intuitive.
Overall I am a fan of the updates that Ford went with on the 2018 Mustang GT, it has everything you need and more unless you need a ton of room in the back seat.
