There is no such thing as perfection. This is the Mustang credo - with Ford seeking always to push this pony to the limits. Complacency doesn't belong in the sport market. Instead a need to go further, faster, forward must drive every decision.
It’s this desire that now defines the 2018 Mustang GT - with Ford partnering with aftermarket specialist, ROUSH, to deliver a new kind of fastback experience to Seattle.
According to Motor One, the 2018 Mustang GT will decimate every mile. Anchoring its lean frame (which measures 188-inches long, 75-inches wide, and 54-inches high) is a 5.8L V8. This engine - now flanked by a 2.5L ROUSH supercharger - yields up to 700 HP and 610 lb.-ft of torque: specs which thrust it ahead of its leading competitors, the Dodge Hellcat and the Chevrolet Camaro. A 12-PSI boost ensures segment-leading speed, pushing this fastback from 0 to 60 in less than four seconds; while the direct-injection fuel system has been specifically calibrated to provide optimum fuel distribution and air intake.
This pony doesn’t run. It flies.
To further improve performance, the 2018 Mustang GT also features a new 10-speed automatic transmission - which utilizes a tight 7.394 gear spread to promote crisp handling and quick responses. Ford has tailored this system to perfectly complement the Coyote V8… and drivers will reap the rewards.

The words prove expected - powerful, peerless, perfect. Critics across Seattle toss their praises onto the Internet, rhapsodizing about the 2018 Mustang GT Premium and its V8 design. This pony, they say, can run.
It can also spare drivers frequent visits to the pump.
As the Herald Net explains, the new Mustang delivers more than performance. Instead Ford has bolstered this fastback with efficiency - yielding segment-leading MPG ratios with every mile. No longer compromise economy for speed. Embrace both on the Seattle streets.
According to the Herald Net team, the 2018 Mustang GT Premium is carefully engineered - emphasizing value with every rev of its 5.0L V8. A new front splitter helps to counter drag, while a lowered grille creates a stable center of gravity (improving overall balance and lessening friction). Port injection technology optimizes every drop of gasoline, while a selectable Eco drive-mode promises smoother accelerations and meticulous resource consumption. A re-tuned suspension further enhances economy, with its electronic traction control and 3.55 limited rear slip working in tandem to provide refined handling.
All of these technologies improve the GT’s performance - offering aerodynamic responses and nimble cornering. Together they achieve 15 MPGs in the city and 25 MPGs on the highway, connecting Seattle drivers to best-in-class fastback economy. This platform (with its six-speed manual transmission and seamless RWD) will delight at the pump.

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.
Envy is a nasty emotion - and yet we can’t help but turn green. The Sound Ford team looks toward Europe with longing, knowing that its drivers have what we don’t; and we feel the pettiness rising. It’s simply not fair. Why should England have all of the pony fun?
According to New Atlas, the cobbled streets of London will soon rattle with V8 power. Steeda - an aftermarket performance tuner and frequent partner of Ford - has just unveiled its 2018 Mustang Enforcer; and it seems poised to redefine the entire market. Peek beneath the hood and discover a robust 5.0L engine, capable of yielding 480 HP and 485 lb.-ft of torque. A new cold air intake system promotes superior performance, while a sport exhaust system frames the rear. The inclusion of a strut tower brace improves stability, allowing the car to corner with precision; and progressive rate springs deliver a fluid ride.
The 2018 Enforcer is designed to impress - with its sculpted chassis flanked by a front splitter and a ducktail rear spoiler. These provide a sharp style, marking this pony as a true track competitor. Check it out!
Ford has yet to confirm whether the 2018 Mustang Enforcer will make its way across the pond - but our team is keeping a close watch on the horizon. We’re hoping to see a flash of Steeda steel-gray soon.

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.

There’s a glint of chrome on the horizon - revving ever-closer, shaking the streets with its promise of power. It casts a monstrous shadow, with its sharp teeth gleaming in the sun; and, throughout Seattle, drivers stand with tip-toed anticipation, trying to catch a peek of this strange (wonderful) beast. What is it? Where does it come from?
Allow the Sound Ford team to provide some much-needed clarity on this pony-car mystery.
According to The Drive, Ford is gearing up for a grand reveal - with a 2018 Mustang Bullitt planned! While no official confirmation has been given, critics are quick to reference a recent Chicago promotion that featured an unnamed fastback. This car (which greatly resembles the original ‘68 GT, delivering both a spoiler delete profile and dark-cast aluminum wheels) shares no badging with the current pony line-up and many have speculated that it will be a limited-edition variant for the new year.
To further bolster this theory, The Drive notes that 2018 will be serve as the 50th anniversary of the original Bullitt - and Ford has a history of celebrating special occasions. The release of a hunter-green pony would, therefore, continue the tradition of memorializing Mustang milestones.

History has no straight lines. Instead it moves in a circle - forever repeating itself, always returning to the same moments. It comes as no surprise, therefore, that the iconic Mustang Bullitt is making its way back to Seattle.
In 1968 Ford - and Steve McQueen - introduced drivers to the Mustang Bullitt. This pony powerhouse (which was a modified GT 390 Fastback) made its debut on the silver screen, revving through the streets of San Francisco in a film that shared its name; and it quickly became one of the most infamous platforms ever created, delivering staggering performance thanks to its sport-tuned suspension and roaring V8.
Now it seems as though the Bullitt will return to North America.
According to Fox News, a new Mustang was recently spotted in Chicago. Though it bore no badging, critics believe it to be the successor to the 1968 Bullitt - with its unique color palette (dark green paneling and silver-rimmed wheels) proving reminiscent of the original. This particular combination isn’t offered on any current pony platform and instead seems tailored for the specialty market.
This would adhere to Ford’s previous Bullitt pattern - with the company releasing limited-edition versions in both 2008 and 2009. Fox critics are certain that the Big Blue Oval is planning a major relaunch of its most iconic V8.
