Variety may be the spice of life - but it’s no longer the guiding force of the pony-market. Ford is streamlining its production process for the 2018 Mustang, offering drivers only two engine options. It’s shed all V6 variants, instead relying on V8 power and EcoBoost efficiency.

We don’t think our customers will mind.



According to Chrom, the 2018 Mustang promises exceptional performance - with its two available engines allowing drivers to tailor their miles to speed or economy:

The 2.3L EcoBoost
Horsepower: 310.
Torque: 350 lb.-ft.
MPG Ratios (Manual Transmission): 21, city; 31, highway.
MPG Ratios (Automatic Transmission): 21, city; 32, highway.

The 5.0L V8
Horsepower: 460.
Torque: 420 lb.-ft.
MPG Ratios (Manual Transmission): 15, city; 25, highway.
MPG Ratios (Automatic Transmission): 16, city; 25, highway.

By simplifying its powerpoint options, Ford allows drivers to take control of their highway experiences - with both the EcoBoost and the V8 emphasizing specific performance values. The 2.3L proves worthwhile at the pump, utilizing turbocharged technology and smooth MagneRide systems to optimize fuel intake; while the 5.0L delivers direct-injection speeds and new manifold designs to maximize the clutch. Both ponies are primed for the Seattle market and will impress with every mile.
