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.

It’s a sudden corner - sharp-edged and offering no mercy to those who must follow it. You give a quick press to the brakes, knowing that your sport coupe won’t be able to accommodate the loss of a straightaway. High-performance, after all, falters when faced with a tight turn.

Ford seeks to change this. With the release of its 2018 Mustang GT, the Big Blue Oval delivers a superior suspension - allowing drivers to conquer every curve with ease.



As Digital Trends explains, the 2018 GT boasts a refined chassis. The underbody is defined by an integral-link rear suspension - which utilizes aluminum-alloy knuckles and H-arms to improve handling. These elements deliver controlled mass responses, isolating road imperfections and distributing traction throughout the car. Electronic stability technology promotes balance, with sport-tuned sensors automatically adjusting tire grippage; while selectable-effort power steering ensures precise turns. A 3.55 limited slip axle further enhances performance, seamlessly engaging to reduce friction.

Bolstered by these features, the 2018 Mustang GT can smoothly sail around every corner - with its 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels clinging to the pavement. No longer fear those sudden twists.

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.

It’s a battle for the ages - with the Ford Mustang and the Chevrolet Camaro revving to the starting line. Their engines roar; their exhaust pipes glisten; and then… they’re off, tires smacking angrily against the pavement. Across the miles they go, pushing the limits of sport-tuned performance.

There can be only one winner in this race, however, and it’s (of course) the Mustang.



According to Torque News, the 2018 Mustang secured a victory for November - generating 6,720 total units! This propelled it past the competition (including its arch-rival the Camaro, which earned only 4,737 total units); and it delivered a massive growth for Ford, allowing the brand to gain a further lead in the auto chart race. With sales numbers currently tracking at approximately 74,000, critics are anticipating a 10% year-to-year gain by December.

This will prove to be a boon for Ford - with the 2018 Mustang (along with popular sellers, the F-150 and the Escape) yielding complete market domination. Chevrolet never stood a chance.

Our team predicted this sales surge months ago, knowing that the new Mustang would impress with its 5.0L V8 engine and class-leading performance (460 HP, 420 lb.-ft of torque). It’s a six-speed manual beast that deftly responds to both the track and the highway.

Variety may be the spice of life - but it’s no longer the guiding force of the pony-market. Ford is streamlining its production process for the 2018 Mustang, offering drivers only two engine options. It’s shed all V6 variants, instead relying on V8 power and EcoBoost efficiency.

We don’t think our customers will mind.



According to Chrom, the 2018 Mustang promises exceptional performance - with its two available engines allowing drivers to tailor their miles to speed or economy:

The 2.3L EcoBoost
Horsepower: 310.
Torque: 350 lb.-ft.
MPG Ratios (Manual Transmission): 21, city; 31, highway.
MPG Ratios (Automatic Transmission): 21, city; 32, highway.

The 5.0L V8
Horsepower: 460.
Torque: 420 lb.-ft.
MPG Ratios (Manual Transmission): 15, city; 25, highway.
MPG Ratios (Automatic Transmission): 16, city; 25, highway.

By simplifying its powerpoint options, Ford allows drivers to take control of their highway experiences - with both the EcoBoost and the V8 emphasizing specific performance values. The 2.3L proves worthwhile at the pump, utilizing turbocharged technology and smooth MagneRide systems to optimize fuel intake; while the 5.0L delivers direct-injection speeds and new manifold designs to maximize the clutch. Both ponies are primed for the Seattle market and will impress with every mile.

The acceleration is easy - with the slightest touch to a pedal yielding exceptional speeds. You race down the Pacific Coast, delighting in the way an engine roars. This pony was made to run and you let the reins go with a grin, certain that it will dominate every straightaway.

Ford knows, however, that cornering may prove far more difficult - which is why it’s anchoring the 2018 Mustang with a suite of stabilizing technologies. Fast speeds now combine with steady performance.



According to USA Today, the new Mustang offers more than blistering power. Instead Ford is ensuring superior handling, fusing the body with both a front splitter and a rear spoiler. These items achieve class-leading stability, generating more than 20 pounds of downforce (the pressure created by wind) at 80 MPH. Through this, they enhance performance, using the rush of air to keep the chassis centered on the road. This couples with AdvanceTrac technology and a stiff suspension to maintain perfect balance.

No longer will drivers fear those sharp corners. The 2018 Mustang will instead offer superior grippage, with its four wheels precisely locked into position with every mile. This will maximize the efforts of the 5.0L V8 engine and allow the pony to power through every obstacle.

The rivalry proves as old as the highway - with Ford and Chevrolet battling in Seattle, eking out victories with every mile. These automotive titans constantly collide; and they pit their greatest warriors, the Mustang and the Camaro, against each other at the front lines.

These battles have forever ended in a vicious stalemate… until now.



According to Motor Authority, Ford is seeking to decimate Chevrolet’s sales - fusing its 2018 Mustang GT with a bold new Performance Package. The pony-car (which already boasts best-in-class capabilities, yielding 460 HP to the Camaro’s 450) will prove unstoppable, offering:

19-inch Wheels - to improve grippage.

Brembo Brakes - to ensure track-worthy decelerations.

An Enlarged Radiator - to increase intake flow and reduce engine strain.

A Stiff Suspension - to provide crisp responses on straightaways and sharp corners alike.

When combined, these features will propel the 2018 Mustang GT past every contender - including the Camaro. Ford is launching an aggressive attack on the market, letting its beloved pony don sport-tuned armor. Motor Authority believes that this will ensure success for the new year… and we agree.

It’s a collection of words - each drenched in speedy descriptors, promising best-in-class handling and adrenaline-fused performance. The Mustang dictionary is a tribute to all things powerful.

Soon, however, a new entry will be added - one that delivers efficiency to Seattle. Prepare for the 2018 Mustang GT and its economical drivetrain!



Motor Authority reports that the new GT is far more than a speedster’s dream. It’s also a surprisingly strong option for those frustrated by station stops - with Ford fusing it with class-leading mileage. Recent spy-shots of the fastback’s dashboard reveal enhanced performance ratios, with its 5.0L V8 engine earning 16 MPGs in the city and 25 MPGs on the highway.

This number, admittedly, doesn’t impress at first glance. The Sound Ford team knows, however, that Seattle drivers will soon appreciate the value of a 5% economy increase - with the six-speed automatic transmission and precise RWD maximizing performance. This pony-car will demand fewer visits to the pump, instead allowing consumers to simply enjoy its 0 to 60 acceleration of 4 seconds. Thrills and efficiency finally combine.
