    Default 2018 Ford Mustang

    The 2018 Mustang has been revealed!
    The facelift has a significant impact on the car.

    I'm not sure what to think of it... some photos I really like it, in others I'm disgusted.

    Dropping the v6 option is probably a good idea.

    I dislike the "real life" photos:

    Pretty excited for this.

    PI/DI 12:1 CR ripping 5.0. 7400rpm.

    I think it was a shot at Lexus' 5.0. I estimate 475-485hp.

    It is sad when a 2018 Honda minivan gets more posts/views in the first day than a 2018 Ford Mustang... And on an enthusiast website no less!!


    I am with you on the styling changes, some pics I like it, others I am not sure. Love that blue though and look forward to seeing the updated hp and tq numbers. Oh, and the dash is

    I wonder if there would be room for the 2.7L Ecoboost positioned between the 2.3 EB and 5.0?

    The community here is getting old.

    I like the mild refresh Ford has done. Will have to take one out for a drive when they arrive.

    I liked the 2015 redesign. And I think it looks better than the 2018 version. The new headlights look... droopy.

    These seem to get uglier every year. I think the Mustang is boring in the sense that everyone knows what to expect every time, which is probably why it gets less discussion.

    I do have to agree with this for the most part. Mustangs are boring, I actually have no idea why I own two
    The 2015 was a huge change. The Gt350 is far from boring and expected.

    I thought there would be more discussion on the 2018. Its a relatively minor facelift, but seems to made a big difference on the car. Lots of discussion in the mustang community... mostly negatively. Though the sn95 community seems okay with it, maybe because we like ugly mustangs?

    Looks good, specs are great, probably amazing to drive...

    ...still can't ever seem to picture myself in one though, they just don't stand out. I'd rather have the OP's unique mustang than a new one.

    Make it your own by customizing. FRPP will have a catalog of parts available for this refreshed Mustang within a year.

    I thought I recalled that many companies had early access to the s550 for part development? Either way the Mustang aftermarket is extremely strong and quick to develope parts. That's the whole point of own a Mustang is to make it your own.

    Not only that Ford offers plenty of different colors and options so you can customize your Mustang more than you can most cars. This update makes me want to get back into a Mustang. Such a fun car.
