Don't have time to put on your sleuthing cap and investigate what's on tap for the 2018 Ford Mustang? The job's already been done, although the details aren't all confirmed for Ford enthusiasts this early in the game.
According to spy photos released across the web, the 2018 Mustang will likely sport brand new head- and taillights; a facelift for the bumper is a potential change as well. But if anything, the notable updates will be to the vehicle's options overall. As Mustang6G.com reports, "The most significant change is the potential removal of the V6 model from the Mustang lineup, as the body type codes for the V6 come up as invalid in the dealer system." Some drivers may consider this a surprising reveal; others may perceive it as a long time coming - after all, Ford has slowly set things in motion to replace the 3.7-liter V6 model with the 2.3-liter EcoBoost, and the V6 model has lacked in the upgrade, option and package in the past few years.

Additionally, the 2018 Mustang's options list now include a dual exhaust option as well as a 10-speed automatic. Mustang6G's team predicts that the former "almost assuredly refers to the quad tip active exhaust system" noted on 2018 Mustang prototypes as of late. Extra pizzazz comes in the form of MagneRide damper options, an unexpected perk that is anticipated to make an appearance on the Mustang GT and the EcoBoost. Auto enthusiasts are already relating the 2018 Mustang to the Shelby GT350 for that reason.
Moving on to the expected packages, the EcoBoost Performance Pack comes with a modified suspension, brakes that pack more of a punch, and different wheels. Even more intriguing is what the folks at Ford coined the "Performance Package 2," a track-focused which will be offered in addition to the standard GT Performance Package.
