2018 Ford Mustang: The Classic American Sports Car

The Ford Mustang has been the classic American sports car since it first hit the road in 1964. It's been a favorite of Arlington and Fort Worth area drivers ever since, and with its distinctive look and legendary performance, it's not hard to see why. If you're looking to stand out on the streets of Grapevine, Grand Prairie and beyond, there's no better sports car. While the 2018 variant sports a new bold look with customizable features, it is still unmistakably Mustang.

What's New for 2018?

A lot has changed for the Mustang for the 2018 model year, not least of all some exterior styling changes sure to get your attention. The headlights are now depressed into the body a bit, giving them an "eyebrow ridge" of sorts and a more determined appearance, the hood has been re-sculpted, and the grille has been redesigned on the exterior.

Under that re-sculpted hood you'll find that there's no longer a V6 engine option, the MagneRide suspension is added, and there's even an available 12-inch all-digital instrument cluster that you can customize to your heart's content. There are more changes than just these - some design-based and some performance-based - so you'll have to visit us in Arlington to check one out for yourself!

Thrilling Power & Performance

Sports car drivers aren't all the same, so the Mustang allows you to choose your level of power; the 2018 offering provides three different engine options, all offering over 300 horsepower. First up, the 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine is the standard engine this time around and delivers 310 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque efficiently. Ford knows that if you have a real need for speed, you will want a V8 Mustang. That's why the Mustang has two powerful V8 engine options! Choose between a 5.0-liter V8 with 460 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque, or a 5.2-liter V8 with 526 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque in the Shelby GT350 and Shelby GT350R models.

No matter what engine you choose, you'll enjoy impressive power, sharp handling, and an unforgettable driving experience. But only part of the exciting performance of the 2018 Ford Mustang is due to powerful engine options; the other half comes from amazing driving dynamics that will make every Ford fan in the Arlington and Mansfield areas feel like a race car driver.

To further enhance performance, the Mustang is equipped with Launch Control, Electronic Line-lock, and selectable driving modes. Selectable driving modes let you choose the handling dynamics and response characteristics to match your driving conditions with the flip of a switch. Choose between Normal, Snow/Wet, Sport or Track.

The Mustang's Electronic Line-Lock, unique to this model, allows you to have the front brakes locked while releasing the rear brakes, letting you accelerate to spin and warm up the rear tires to enhance grip. Launch Control combines brakes, traction control, and powertrain control for a smooth and consistent start, as well as to provide you with excellent torque balance, grip and acceleration. Last but not least, the new MagneRide Damping System from the Ford Performance family of vehicles provides four sensors to improve responsiveness and performance from straightaways to tight turns and everything in between.

Impressive Convenience Features

You'll have all the information you need during the ride right in front of you in bright, bold digital colors; the new 12-inch LCD Digital Instrument Cluster with MyColor allows you to customzie colors, choose your gauge layouts, and tailor your Selectable Drive Modes to your liking. More than just practicality, the available SYNC 3 infotainment system can be added to give you the latest and most cutting-edge apps and connectivity on the fly, even allowing for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Add on the available 390-watt Shaker Pro Audio System with HD Radio Technology, including 12 speakers and an 8-inch subwoofer, and you'll get crystal-clear audio all ride long.

Advanced Safety Features

While it is exciting to push the pedal to the metal and see what a 2018 Ford Mustang with 526 horsepower can do, you will also need some pretty serious stopping power. The GT Performance Package adds Brembo six-piston performance front brakes and calipers with larger rotors for ultimate stopping power.

The Mustang also offers advanced safety features to watch the road around you, and can alert you of a potentially dangerous situation approaching with Blind Spot Information System with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Adaptive Cruise Control with Rain Sensing Wipers, and Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection. Every Mustang also features SOS Post Crash Alert System which will automatically send help when a collision is detected.
