Bigger isn’t always better. Ford urges drivers to remember this - fusing its 2018 Mustang with a compact four-cylinder. This engine proves smaller than its V8 brother, but it’s no less impressive on the highway. Prepare for a premium pairing of power and economy.
As the Chicago Sun Times explains, the 2018 Mustang boasts a 2.3L four-cylinder engine. This powerpoint anchors its EcoBoost Fastback trim, allowing the platform to deliver 310 HP (at 5,550 RPMs) and 350 lb.-ft of torque (at 3,000 RPMs). A 9.5:1 compression ratio promises fluid acceleration, while mechanical bucket valves ensure maximum air intake levels. Fuel is delivered via a direct injection system, which intuitively assess the demands of the performance-band to provide precise distribution; and a 10-speed automatic transmission bolsters the system through SelectShift technology and optional paddle activation.
This, critics note, ensures superior capability - with the 2018 Mustang delivering both fast speeds (it charges from 0 to 60 in a mere 5.3 seconds) and class-leading economy (21 MPGs in the city and 32 MPGs on the highway). Drivers experience no compromises, just rewards.
