Ford has brought in a refreshed version of the Mustang.The major revision in the 2018 Ford Mustang is that the naturally aspirated 3.7-litre V6 motor has been dropped. The pony express will only be available with two engine options. First is the 2.3-litre 4-cylinder EcoBoost motor whose power and torque numbers haven’t been revealed yet. Ford mentions that the 2.3-litre motor will offer outstanding performance advantages versus the now discontinued 3.7-litre V6. This unit will make use of an overboost function that makes it more torquey than before.
Ford also claims to have worked on the 5.0-litre V8 to make it more powerful and rev higher than the previous Mustangs. The higher power delivery has been achieved with the use of new high-pressure direct injection and low-pressure port fuel injection in the V8 to make it deliver a strong low-end torque, higher peak power output and also improved fuel efficiency. The V8 Mustang will also have an optional feature to crank up the volume of the iconic exhaust note of the motor, ideal to wake up the neighbours at the middle of the night.
The 2.3-litre and the 5.0-litre engines will be mated to the new 10-speed automatic transmission that is also offered in the F-150 pick-up truck. The company states that the new unit has quicker shift times, better low-speed response and significantly lower friction losses. The shift pattern can be altered in different drive modes. If automatics are not your thing, Ford will offer the 6-speed manual transmission as standard.
