2018 Ford Mustang Review

Athletic performance, impressive technology, and an upscale interior elevate the 2018 Ford Mustang far beyond its iconic muscle car status to a versatile vehicle suitable for many different driving personalities.

Drivers in Geneva, Canandaigua, and Rochester can find out what's new for the 2018 Ford Mustang with our in-depth model review.

Performance

The base engine for the Mustang is a 2.3L turbo 4-cylinder engine, which produces 310 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. This is a pleasant engine for everyday performance, but the star of the lineup is a 5.0L V8 engine with 460 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. This engine is lively and quick, giving the Mustang a 0-60 runtime under four seconds.

Both engines pair to a 10-speed automatic transmission that offers quick, predictable shifts and extracts every bit of power from these engines. Regardless of engine, the Mustang offers sharp handling and incredible agility, making it an exciting ride.

The GT350 gets a special engine, a flat-plane 5.2L V8 engine with magnetically damped ride. This is a track-focused sports car that's not designed for daily driving, but it will go down as one of the most remarkable Mustang models in history.

Interior

The new Mustang boasts a more upscale interior than ever before, thanks to optional RECARO® seating, premium leather upholstery, and plenty of soft-touch materials. The seats are supportive and heavily bolstered, providing excellent long-distance comfort, and the rear seats have more space than previous years.

The trunk space is abundant for this class, with the Mustang outperforming rivals with 13.5 cubic feet of space in the coupe and 11.4 cubic feet in the convertible. This is hardly a vehicle designed to haul all your gear, but that's enough space for a weekend trip or a long shopping day.

Technology

The Mustang can be equipped with the SYNC® 3 infotainment system with an 8-inch touch screen, which is one of the top systems on the market. The large clear touchscreen with responsive inputs makes it easy to learn and use on the road, and the simple, straightforward menus provide quick access to the features you need most. The system pairs to Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ smartphones as well, giving you access to all your phone's media and app capability.

Several advanced safety features are available for the Mustang as well, including Adaptive Cruise Control, Forward Collision Warning, Blind-Spot Monitoring, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, and Rain-Sensing Wipers. These features are helpful for monitoring the area around your vehicle and passing and merging safely, as well as alerting you to potential collisions.
