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.

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.

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.

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:
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.
