Ford Performance claims its 2018 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet will rocket down a quarter-mile faster than the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon by more than a second, but it won’t be able to taunt anyone past the exit sign to the drag strip. Its monstrous supercharged 5.2-liter Coyote V8 won’t be street legal.
The 2018 Ford Mustang GT let out a glorious, guttural belch as I rolled into the gas through a long sweeping turn. There was nothing else on the road but tire marks and tumbleweeds until I caught a twinkle in the rear-view mirror: another Ford Mustang GT, this car’s direct predecessor.
We got to spend a few hours with the 2018 Ford Mustang in November. Now we’ve got one all to ourselves for a whole week in an awesome spec: 5.0 V8, six-speed manual, and every performance option you can tick from the factory.
Nearly 20 years ago, an 11-second car was fast. It’s still fast now, but back in the early 2000s, if you had a 11-second car, your shit was fast. Now it’s 2018 and a stock Mustang GT that you could walk off the lot with today can lay down an 11-second quarter mile like it’s nothing. What a time to be alive.
The new 2018 Ford Mustang is the first big update for the model that launched three years ago, and it brings with it a big jump in power, a new automatic transmission, and some minor changes to the exterior like the headlights, which people that post in car forums have said remind them of a turtle. (Or did I say that…
I’m going to Malibu, California, on Monday to drive the updated 2018 Ford Mustang. And while I’m plenty curious about it myself, I really want to know what you, our dear readers, want to know about it. Send me some questions! I’ll do my best to answer them while I’m there!
Ford said in July that the 2018 Ford Mustang GT would come with an optional Performance Pack that would include things like a bigger radiator, summer tires, and upgraded brakes. Today, the company unveiled the Performance Pack Level 2, an upgrade on the upgrade which they said would “bridge the gap” between the first…
A lot of us think Ford teased a 2018 Mustang Bullitt in a video earlier this year, and we’ve been sniffing for confirmation of the car since. Mustang fans got riled up again today as a window sticker of a 2018 Mustang Bullitt appeared online, but unfortunately, Ford has confirmed it is not legitimate.
A scream of a V8 (or a V6) echoes down a street lined with spectators. A Mustang fishtails into view, smoke billowing from its rear tires, its driver fighting madly for control. The car flicks and people dive out the way.
I’m not going to make a dumb Cars and Coffee joke; instead, I’m going to just marvel at the fact that starting this fall, every new base V8 2018 Ford Mustang GT will make 460 horsepower (!!!), and accelerate to 60 in a time that—not too long ago—was exclusively reserved for supercars. Yes, let’s all just enjoy this…
Since summer is hot, just like your brakes while trying to stop a Mustang from fast approaching the nearest curb, there’s now an ice cream to match the color of the car. But it isn’t just cool looking. It has a very practical function: allowing you to tell everyone that, yes, you did eat something other than a wall…
Have you ever felt the need to add some pizzazz to your car on its way to wreck out of Cars and Coffee, even if that style will get all bent up sooner or later? Do you ever wish your Mustang had that little extra style element to denote that it is, in fact, the crash missile in the group? Then the updated Pony Package…
Scanned images from an alleged catalog for the upcoming 2018 Ford Mustang refresh have been leaked, and among the updated factory-installed options are many new looks which mostly just include graphic stripes.
Up until now, if you’ve wanted to smoke your Ford Mustang’s rear tires without roasting your rear brakes, your best bet has been the V8 GT. But now for 2018, Ford is making the Line Lock (“Burnout Mode”) feature standard across the Mustang range. Which is kind of absurd, if you think about it. But in a good way.
The updated 2018 Ford Mustang: is it good or is it bad? I can’t say. I haven’t seen it in person. But it’s on display at the Chicago Auto Show, and from that we got our closest look at the car yet. You decide whether it’s an improvement over the old car or not.
