New Ford Mustang Features Attractive Updates

The Ford Mustang is one of the most classic vehicles enjoyed by countless drivers in the country. It is a major player on an aesthetic- and performance-based level, and it is designed to provide drivers with the comfort and handling they need for all types of driving. Only a few years following the automaker's 50th anniversary, the Ford Mustang is being rolled into showrooms anew, and the beautiful car is planned to receive some massive updates to its style and function. Fans were excited for the unveiling, and the new features suggest a more novel approach to bringing the vehicle to a wider audience overall. 

Among the new changes are beautiful additions to the front and rear designs. These updates to the exterior are meant to improve the aerodynamics of the car and give the Mustang a much more athletic appearance. Additionally, Ford says that drivers can also expect new updates to the engine that will deliver significantly more power to the vehicle. The car is also planned to have a 10-speed gearbox that can help boost mileage and a brand new MagneRide suspension system that helps enhance the overall smoothness during the drive. These changes make the car feel sportier while providing drivers with all of the control they need to enjoy the drive itself.

Those who have had a chance to take a look at the vehicle have said that the 2018 Ford Mustang's refresh is much more extensive than what is typical in a mid-cycle makeover. This understanding reflects the increase in competition among automakers and the market's slow shift from passenger cars to more functional SUVs. Ford officials have said that many of the changes were designed in order to keep the Mustang active as one of the world's most popular sports coupes. Ford's representatives have said that the Mustang is their best ever vehicle, and they plan on making the car relevant and equally iconic over the course of the next several years.

Speaking from a performance perspective, representatives have said that the manufacturer is planning on upgrading two of the car's three engines. The design and function of the GT 5.0-liter V-8 has been reworked with driving comfort and functionality in mind. Similarly, the engine will now use a direct-injection and port-injection system. Though the specific figures are not yet available, Ford has also claimed that technicians are optimizing performance in order to bring drivers a better overall fuel economy with improved torque. Drivers can look forward to definite power when they drive, especially with the addition of further surrounding changes. 

The interior has received a similar makeover. Drivers will find a number of additional features, including the inclusion of a versatile infotainment technology. Both hardware and software options are available to provide drivers with a new way to enjoy their ride. The car features the new Sync 3 infotainment system, which is now available on display with a 12-inch touchscreen, available as an option. Individuals can also enjoy an optional Fordpass system, which allows drivers to operate door locks and track the vehicle's parking more remotely, increasing security no matter where the driver is going.

In addition to all of the design and performance changes, the new Mustang will also provide drivers with a host of safety changes that can make the drive more secure on all road conditions. The software system will feature a broad variety of driver-assistance options, which include the Pre-Collision Assist that helps detect pedestrians and prevent a collision. Individuals can also look forward to a distance alert and a lane-departure warning to help them stay on top of their driving.
