The Ford Mustang has long had a reputation for being one of the most popular, exciting, and fastest muscle cars on the market, and that reputation is well-earned. But Ford automakers haven’t kept the Ford Mustang at the forefront of the muscle car market by resting on their laurels – they have worked hard to ensure that each model year has something new and exciting to offer drivers, and the 2018 Ford Mustang is no exception.
One of the biggest achievements of this newest version of the Ford muscle car is its speed: the 2018 Ford Mustang GT can go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in less than four seconds, making it the fastest Ford Mustang GT ever to hit the streets. How does the car achieve this? For starters, it uses a re-designed 5.0-liter V8 engine, which can produce 460 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque. Then it pairs this impressive engine with a ten-speed SelectShift transmission to give the driver easy, smooth shifting abilities. It also offers drivers the ability to select “Drag Strip” mode, which maximizes the acceleration and performance and makes shifting gears fast and efficient, allowing for outstanding straight-line driving abilities. We don’t know about you, but we can’t wait for all that power and performance to come home to Shelbyville! Ford Mustang fans awaiting this next model as eagerly as we are can expect it this fall in our showroom.
Speed is just one aspect of what drivers can look forward to in the 2018 Ford Mustang, and we’re excited to share more details about this exciting new model.
