In our review of the 2018 Ford Mustang, we're going to show you what to expect compared to the 2017 Mustang model. We'll take a look at the engine updates, vehicle style, and the available features. We hope that this preview of the 2018 Mustang gets you excited like us! Keep reading to learn more.


2018 Ford Mustang Updated Specs

Drivers who love the power of the Ford Mustang will appreciate the new updates to the engine options. While the 3.7L V6 was formidable enough for the 2017 model, it's going away and being replaced with the 2.3L EcoBoost® four-cylinder engine as the standard. We can expect that this engine will outperform the 310 horsepower of last year's model. Performance-based drivers will love the newly retooled 5.0L V8, which will no doubt surpass the 435 horsepower that made last year's model a force to be reckoned with.
