2018 Ford Mustang Changes
Although this model is almost completely camouflaged, we can see some details from the outside. Also, there are latest rumors about the features and we think that will be enough for now. First of all, we can start from the front side of the newest Mustang model. The first notable change from the front side is headlights, it will be slightly modified compared to the previous model. Considering the fact that all lights on the vehicle will be powered by the LED technology, the headlights will also use it and that will remain the same as before.

The headlights and the grille will be probably connected. Seems like the changes will be minor, like a slightly revised grille and also a bit redesigned front bumper. The new Ford Mustang 2018 bumper will be certainly equipped with the big air intakes and most likely with the LED foggy lights. According to spy photos, the side panels will most likely be the same but with different wheels design. At the rear side, the taillights will be probably slightly modified. We can also expect new exhaust pipes, a bit sportier rear spoiler and probably a diffuser-like element.

2018 Ford Mustang Interior design
Unfortunately, the 2018 Mustang pictures about the interior design are unavailable, but we heard some reliable rumors from our sources. First of all, we can expect some minor changes in the cabin. Changes will be most likely related to the technology and some new materials. There will be some new upholstery materials inside as well as updated systems. Furthermore, the available standard interior features will include 8-inch infotainment display fitted with an updated system. Also, there are new ambient interior lights, dual zone climate control, wooden and aluminum parts on the dash, leather upholstery, adaptive cruise control and many others as well.
Engine and Performance
Underneath the hood, the most recent model will be powered by the same engine as before, and the word is the 3.7-liter V-6 engine. However, we can expect more power than before. This engine will be capable of delivering 320 horses and 300 pound-feet which are 20 horses and 20-pound feet better than in the current model. The 2018 Mustang acceleration from 0-60 mph will be around 5.9 seconds. Another engine will be turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder EcoBoost that will be capable of generating up to 310 horses and 320 pound-feet. With this engine, the acceleration from 0-60 mph will be 5.4 seconds.
The 2018 Ford Mustang GT engine is 5.0-liter Coyote V-8 engine that is capable of delivering close to 450 horsepower. The second one we heard could be a flat-plane crankshaft V8 Voodoo with the size of 5.2 liters. All engines will be mated to a modernized version of the previous Getrag six-speed manual gearbox. The automatic system will be brand new, and the word is about the 10-speed automatic for GT and GT500. Smaller engines should have 6-speed automatic(plus old 6-speed manual), but not officially confirmed yet.
