Bigger is better. This proves the cornerstone of the 2018 Mustang GT - with Ford seeking to push every performance ratio to the limits. This is no meek coupe. Instead the entire chassis has been designed to fly, delivering class-shattering speeds with each mile.
Are you ready for next-gen power?
As Ladue News explains, Ford has transformed its 2018 GT into a true fastback beast. Anchored by a 5.0L Coyote V8, this platform yields 460 HP and 420 lb.-ft of torque. This ensures a 0 to 60 blitz of less than five seconds, and it propels the car to the quarter-mile mark in a mere 12 seconds.
How does Ford deliver such powerful responses? It’s upgraded the entire engine suite. Displacement values for the Mustang have soared from 4,797 cubic centimeters to 5,030. This raises the redline to a staggering 7,500 (a 10% increase from the previous model) and it takes advantage of the new dual port and direct injection systems, ensuring a more efficient distribution of torque. A 10-speed automatic transmission further improves performance, eliminating the drag of manual downshifting and allowing for smooth gear changes; and an available MagneRide suspension bolsters every rev, utilizing highly adaptive shock absorbers to reduce friction.
Ford has tailored the 2018 GT to impress - and we expect to see it roaring down the Seattle streets soon. To learn more about this fastback contact our team today.
There is only room for one coupe atop the Seattle sales peak - and the 2018 Mustang has secured a snug position there, forcing its competition to huddle in the shadows below. Ford’s signature fastback reigns among the North American market, delivering staggering four-cylinder capability; and no other platform can hope to unseat it.
The 2018 Camaro (briefly) tried… and failed.
According to Digital Trends, Chevrolet sought to steal the sales crown from Ford - introducing the Seattle market to its 2018 Camaro. Anchored by a 2.0L four-cylinder, this platform promised 275 HP (at 5,600 RPM) and 295 lb.-ft of torque (at 3,000 RPM). It combined turbocharged performance with a six-speed manual transmission, and its rear-wheel-drive ensured smooth cornering through seamless traction distribution. On paper it seemed a near identical match to the Mustang.
On the highway, however, it couldn’t measure up.
Digital Trends explains that the 2018 Mustang - despite also having a six-speed manual transmission and a rear-wheel-drive - delivers considerably more power than its Camaro cousin. Beneath its hood rests a 2.3L turbocharged four-cylinder. This generates 310 HP (at 5,500 RPM) and 350 lb.-ft of torque (at 3,000 RPM). This marks a more than 10% improvement over Chevy and ensures a continued first-place position in Seattle.

It’s the most unmistakable sound - the roar of a V8. Through the city streets it echoes, warning the idle to slide out of the way and urging the speed-demons to follow. It transforms Seattle into a pony mecca.
Soon it will do the same for all of Washington.
Ford has just announced a partnership with aftermarket specialist ROUSH to enhance its 2018 Mustang. The two brands will work tirelessly to improve the platform’s 5.0L Coyote V8 through sport-tuned handling and ECU remapping (which will calibrate every rev for the track, increasing the redline by 15%); and they’ll bring deep-throated rumbles to every mile, pairing the powertrain with an exclusive Active Exhaust system. This utilizes high-flow air intake valves and quad T-304 tips to reduce back pressure and heighten every decibel, resulting in that signature pony stomp.

ROUSH has long since served as an ally for Ford, helping the Big Blue Oval decimate the competition through pure V8 performance. Now it seeks to continue that tradition with the 2018 Mustang, fusing this platform with 460 HP! The entire chassis has been tailored for speed - from its adjustable three-way coil-over suspension to its Continental Extreme Contact tires (both of which promote a 1.07 lateral-G over the skid-pad). This is the ultimate pony.

It’s an all too familiar pattern - with the Mustang roaring to the top of the charts and its competitors sputtering behind. Every month Ford wins the sales race, delivering steady growth to Seattle; and critics now spend their time debating which platforms will claim the second and third positions. There’s never a question of which brand will rev into first.
As Torque News explains, the 2018 Mustang is (once again) king of the charts. In January this pony earned an impressive 4,732 units. This number may - at first - leave our readers less than thrilled, but we’re quick to remind them that winter always wreaks havoc on fastback sales. To achieve almost 5,000 U.S. units proves the viability of the V6.
While Ford celebrates its January win, its competitors are sulking in their respective corners - with the Dodge Challenger earning only 3,405 units and the Chevrolet Camaro yielding 2,867 units. Our team isn’t surprised. The 2018 Mustang delivers class-leading power, leaving these platforms in the proverbial dust with its 460 HP and 420 lb.-ft of torque. An optional 10-speed automatic transmission ensures seamless handling (utilizing a shift algorithm to improve gear-to-gear responses), while the 19-inch wheels glide across every terrain.
The new Mustang was designed to succeed - on both the highway and the charts.
It’s the most desperate of battles. Across Seattle three speedsters fly - their engines roaring, their transmissions rattling. Each revs toward the top of the sales chart, trying to secure an end-of-the-year victory. Only one, after all, can claim the first place position.
According to USA Today, Ford has (yet again) delivered best-in-class performance on the charts. Despite competition from its main rivals - the Chevrolet Camaro and the Dodge Challenger Hellcat - the Big Blue Oval has managed to sell an astounding 74,152 Mustangs for 2017. This number places it well above the rest of the sports market and, as critics note, it doesn’t include even December’s total units. The chance to break 80,000 is quite strong.
This would prove a boon for Ford - showcasing the enduring power of its Mustang. Despite having decades beneath the hood, this pony-car has remained relevant through its staggering V8 engine and high-speed potential (it roars from 0 to 60 in less than four seconds). It’s no wonder that its rivals fall short, with Chevrolet managing only 64,138 units and Dodge yielding 60,029.
The Mustang is revving toward a record-year in Seattle - and we anticipate that this trend will continue in 2018.
The power proves intoxicating. Down a highway you fly - a soft-top rolled back to reveal the night, the steady hum of an engine as your only companion. You press the pedal and feel the satisfying thrum of the throttle. There’s no mile you can’t conquer, no speed you can’t reach.
Ford appreciates your enthusiasm. It also knows, however, that true power is paired with safety - which is why it’s fused the 2018 Mustang with class-leading technologies.
According to The News Wheel, the 2018 Mustang isn’t merely a high-performance platform. Instead it promises a safe experience for every driver. Adaptive cruise control regulates speed, ensuring that those late night adventures don’t ignore the rules of the road; forward collision warnings pair with pedestrian detection capabilities, alerting riders to the approach of possible dangers; and a lane-keeping system maintains precise alignments. A rearview camera further enhances security, delivering both high-definition feeds and gridline support.
To improve the driving experience, the new Mustang also features tire monitoring technology. This system measures individual pressure levels, immediately detecting dangerous deflations. This promotes superior tread traction on Washington's slippery byways.

On October 31st the neon lights of Las Vegas will dim - overwhelmed by the burst of HID brilliance from Ford’s pony cars. Mustangs will race down the streets, cracking the pavement with their 18-inch hoofs; and they’ll rev into the SEMA Show, where thousands of guests will hurry to catch a glimpse of the chrome stampede.
Among the stallions Ford will wrangle into the Convention Center will be the 2018 Mustang Tucci - a custom platform that should thrill every Seattle speedster.
According to Automobile Magazine, the 2018 Tucci is boldly designed. A pro-mod wing anchors the rear, emphasizing the wide lines and LED taillights; while a carbon fiber roll bar frames the front, complemented by the sculpted sweep of a hood and the large tri-bar grille. Metallic gray coloring is punctuated by chrome-alloy accents and sleek black trims.
This brings dynamic style to the highway. Don’t worry, though, Seattle: the 2018 Mustang Tucci doesn’t sacrifice performance. Boasting a 5.0L V8 engine, this pony can blaze to a top-speed of 200 MPH. Its Mishimoto radiator delivers superior cooling capabilities, while a Borla exhaust system precisely controls intake ratios. This all combines with a rear diffuser that ensures peerless handling, reducing both drag and wind resistance.
Are you excited yet?
The 2018 Mustang Tucci will make its official debut at this year’s SEMA Show. To learn more about its impending Seattle arrival contact us today.
It’s a V6 tradition - with Ford anchoring its Mustang with inline-performance and steady power. While every year has yielded chassis tweaks and suspension upgrades, the chrome core of this pony has remained the same… until now.
According to Automotive World, Ford is breaking its V6 cycle. No longer will this be the engine of choice for the Mustang, with the 2018 variant instead receiving an upgrade across its entire line-up (including the Premium, GT, and Fastback) . Prepare for the arrival of the V8.
High-performance now defines the pony-car. Beneath the hood sits a 5.0L V8, capable of generating more than 450 HP. A class-exclusive dual intake system - which pairs low-pressure port technology and direct-injection capability - delivers premium power, while an available turbocharger promises maximum thrust (the estimated 0 to 60 time is five seconds). All of this combines with a new 10-speed automatic transmission, which allows drivers to seamlessly adapt to every track turn.
The introduction of a standard V8 engine was (at first) met with disbelief. After all, the Mustang has served as the premier fastback for more than 50 years - and such a radical change seemed unwarranted. The promise of class-shattering capability, however, has left the critics impressed; and we know that Seattle drivers will soon embrace this change as well.

Is it possible to improve perfection? Ford seems willing to try - bolstering its latest pony-car with a series of fascia enhancements. The 2018 Mustang is primed for both the track and the runway, connecting Seattle drivers to a chic new style.
According to The Journal, Ford is bringing bold design to North America. The 2018 Mustang has been thoroughly transformed, with its fastback profile impressing with every mile. A trapezoidal grille now frames the front, flanked by LED headlamps and tri-bar indicators. 19-inch alloy wheels are tucked beneath sculpted fenders, while the newly lowered hood features classic scalloping details. Follow the lean lines of the side panels to discover a body-molded rear bumper and a diffuser - both of which promote nimbler handling, helping to reduce overall drag resistance and repel wind. An optional quad-tailpipe and spoiler complete the look.
The 2018 Mustang is undeniably sleek. To showcase this, The Journal notes that Ford has added three new colors to its collection - Kona Blue, Orange Fury, and Royal Crimson. Each delivers rich metallic tones that will impress every pony-fan.

Something wickedly sweet this way comes. To celebrate the impending release of its 2018 Mustang, Ford is launching a marketing campaign like no other - delivering ice cream fun to the United States!
According to CNET, the Big Blue Oval is shifting gears, transitioning from the assembly line to the ice cream parlor. In honor of its new Mustang, it’s introducing drivers in California and New York to a delicious dessert - Orange Fury. Named after the latest pony-car color option, this sherbet concoction will prove ideal for the summer. A massive single scoop is nestled between two vanilla cookies, while an edible potato wrapper keeps everything perfectly pressed. A drizzle of icing adds a final layer of goodness.
Want to sample that goodness for yourself? The Sound Ford Renton team is sad to report that no plans have been announced to send Orange Fury on a nationwide tour - but we have our fingers crossed that this Mustang-inspired flavor will find its way to Seattle.
Until then we’ll content ourselves with images of ice cream... and spec sheets of the upcoming pony-car. This 5.0L V8 powerhouse will soon roar downtown, promising more than 435 HP and 400 lb.-ft of torque!
