As the new 2018 Ford Mustang is upon us there are all new information being released about this model every day. In fact people have been gearing up for the release for quite some time and as the release date has already been confirmed and we are certainly going to see the model appear on the market next year, there are many other things that we are interested in and want to find out about.
First of all, it appears that the latest 2018 Mustang is going to make it available to combine packages this time. What was frustrating with the current model is that you cannot use the Track and the Technology package at the same time and use them both for your vehicle, eventually you would have to give up on one of those things. But the latest information state that the Track package is going to a standard option, meaning that the 2018 model is going to have all the goodies from the package as your standard parts of equipment now. The tech package is still an optional one and you can add whenever you see it fit and use it for your new Mustang.
So this means that the goodies which were previous solely restricted to the Track package, like the aluminum strut tower brace, MagneRide suspension, transmission and differential coolers are being offered with your standard car now. Well some people are not going to care about some parts of the equipment that is for sure but it still makes it a good effort to have them as you will be missing out on the conventional dampers as they now come with some exclusive ones.
Besides these there are many new additions made that are going to update the new 2018 Ford Mustang and if you want to find out what they are you can read the review.
The previous model was a good choice for the Mustang but the new 2018 Ford Mustang is going to continue the tradition of making good options and adding great different design cues for the car and make it still desirable for the future. What this model aims to do is to provide an desirable vehicle for anyone and give us a Mustang that can do whatever you want. Thus the chagnes and updates are appropriate as well. The previous car had a decklid spoiler which was a hit, but was used as an optional point, the 2018 model is going to use it as well but is going to make it a standard piece of equipment which is the case with many other parts of the car here.
Other updates made to the car is the addition of completely new color choices, thus you can now chose from Lightning Blue, Grabber Blue, and Ruby Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat while the previous Competition Orange and Deep Impact Blue were excluded. These models might and color choices may become collectible items some day if they get to be removed for other future models.
The inside of the car features a lot of new changes as well which may prove to be very exciting for the car. A lot of it is actually transferred and we are going to see a lot of the same things as before, but the added new ones are enough to satisfy the urges of even the most hard-core Ford Mustang fans. First of all, he technology package is this time going to be substituted with a Convencience package which actually adds a lot of the same things but some new ones as well. What you get with tithe addition of this package is leather-trimmed seats, power-adjustable options for the seats and heated and cooled additions inside them. There are also a couple of more speakers added now to make it even more fun on the interior and some suspension parts which make the ride much more comfortable.
You also get the entirely new Electronics package which comes with a whole range of additions by itself. You mainly get at Sync 3 with voice-activated navigation and SiriusXM. But this option does not allow you to have the added speakers that you would with the previous package and no leather trim seats, but you get to experience all the added entertainment and usefulness that you would not get to have with the previous package. But the standard version does have a pretty decent setup when it comes to the materials used so you can freely do without the added comfort in this case.
As for the engines, the 2018 Ford Mustang is going to have three different engine options available. The first and the base one is the 3.7 L, V6 engine which is capable of making 300 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. The second one is a 2.3 L, 4-cylinder EcoBoost engine that produces a bit more and can ride 310 hp and 320 lb-ft of torque. The final engine option is the one which is going to be available only for Mustang GT versions and is thus the stronger one as it utilizes the 5.0 L, V8 engine which makes 435 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque. All of the mentioned engine options are combined with a 6-speed manual transmission system or a 6-speed automatic system.

It is still going to be available in 2018 but in is going to come out in the first third of the year that is for sure. The price may change due to the mixes with the packages and now some new features being available as standard so it is going to affect the price for sure. It may go higher than $ 40,000.
