Now history is poised to repeat itself with the introduction of the 2018 Ford Mustang, which drops the current car’s naturally aspirated 3.7-liter V-6 and leaves Ford’s updated pony car with only two engine choices: a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder and a naturally aspirated 5.0-liter Coyote V-8.
Normal largely mimics the look of the analog cluster, Sport elongates the tachometer to put higher revs at the top, and Track mode eliminates the analog speedometer and tachometer, replacing the speedo with a digital readout and the tach with a longitudinal setup at the top of the cluster.
Finally, Ford is incorporating the latest automated safety technology into the Mustang, with a pre-collision system that can also detect pedestrians, plus lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist.
Look for the 2018 Ford Mustang to go on sale this fall.
Pricing for the base four-cylinder model is likely to stay close to today’s $27,095 Mustang EcoBoost, while the GT with V-8 should add approximately $500 to $1000 to the base price of today’s $34,095 model.
