As you can see from the available 2018 Mustang engine options above, Ford dropped the old V6 engine from the mix. With a retooled 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine, the 2018 Mustang is expected to provide more horsepower and torque, along with better fuel economy. On the outside, the 2018 Mustang features a redesigned bumper, lower hood, smaller headlights, and horizontal turn signals. A slightly reshaped bumper and redesigned LED taillights can be seen in the side-by-side image above.

The entry level 2018 Mustang model is now available with the turbo, 2.3L EcoBoost four-cylinder engine. Of course, you’ll still be able to shift with the standard 6-speed manual transmission. Ford will offer a 10-speed automatic transmission that provides more responsiveness and a better feel behind the wheel.

More high-tech features, like the first available all-digital instrument panel, will be available from the 2018 Mustang. Other available electronic driving aids that have been expanded will include pre-collision assist with pedestrian detection, distance alert, lane-keeping assist, and a lane-departure warning system.
