Does it make a difference?
Driving the reincarnation of Shelby's GT40-powered Mustang.
One of the biggest changes to the 2018 Ford Mustang was the addition of a 10-speed automatic transmission that we've seen in different forms in both Fords and Chevys. And because of its newness, and the fact that nearly half of you readers wanted to know more about it, we ordered up our long-term Mustang with the 10-speed to see what it's like on a daily basis. We also, as luck would have it, got a six-speed manual Mustang at the same time, so we decided to take a close look at them back-to-back
We get it. Superfans only want to hear about the yin versus yang. iPhone versus Android. Batman versus Superman. The Ford Mustang versus its Bizarro World twinsie/frenemy, the Chevy Camaro.
Our new long-term 2018 Ford Mustang GT has been in our hands for just a few days, but we've already tacked a few thousand miles on to the odometer. Unlike most of our test vehicles, Ford allowed us to option the car ourselves. We then let you, our faithful audience, choose most of the features for us. You can read all about it in our introductory post. At $51,470, our car isn't cheap, but it does come with a hell of a lot of equipment for the price.
One hundred miles per hour, 6,000 rpm. I shift up to fourth gear at the start/finish line and return the throttle to the floor. The 289 cubic inch V8 revs quickly, feels great over four grand, and sings a sweet howl from the Mustang's side-exiting exhaust. We're at Willow Springs Raceway driving a 1965 Shelby GT350 Competition model, a brand-new build constructed by the Original Venice Crew, with license from both Carroll Shelby Licensing and the Ford Motor Company. And I'm four-wheel-drifting i
When Ford offered Autoblog the chance to spec out our own 2018 Ford Mustang, we jumped at the opportunity. Who wouldn't want some extended seat time in the latest version of the original pony car? After waiting out the long, cold winter (and a pre-delivery mishap that required the repainting of a bumper), our new Mustang is finally here.
Happy Mustang Day! On April 17, 1964, the original pony car was introduced to the world and phenomena was born. So, in honor of one of the greatest American cars that ever was and continues to be, let's take a quick spin in the latest version, the 2018 Ford Mustang that received a number of key updates this year.
It's more than just style.
A perfect blend of V8 engines, manual transmissions, and winding California roads.
More power, more torque and a louder exhaust.
At 50 years old, the object of fantasies, a tuner's dream, a movie star and more than nine million strong, it couldn't be truer to say that the Ford Mustang needs no introduction. This newest Mustang, however – making the biggest changes we've seen to the pony car since perhaps 1964.5 – is something Ford has been introducing all year.
