American pony cars are currently leading a fierce battle for the best one in the state. With the sixth-generation Camaro, Chevrolet challenged Ford, and we were just waiting for Blue Oval to respond. So they did.

The company presented refreshed 2018 Ford Mustang at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show, which now comes with more power, additional technology and redesigned more aggressive design. It is rather interesting to watch Ford and Chevrolet going at each other.

The first thing that is different on the 2018 Ford Mustang is the front fascia. The vehicle looks more aggressive and angrier with the sharper narrow headlights and iconic front grille. Moreover, this model is equipped with new air intakes which are located in the lower corners of the front bumpers, while under the rear bumper you can see new quad exhaust system.

The cabin of the new vehicle is what we have already seen on the 2017 version, but there are some minor changes. For example, there is a new larger gauge cluster while the large digital display allows the driver to have a great view of it without taking his eyes off the road to much. The instrument panel shows different information as you switch between the driving modes.

Engine for the new 2018 Mustang

Ford decided to reduce the number of engine options for the new 2018 Mustang. There will be no V6 units anymore, and the base trim will come with a 2.3-liter turbocharged I4. Of course, Ford will keep the 5.0-liter V8 powerplant on the Mustang GT, and it has even been improved with direct injection and a higher redline. Six-speed manual transmission and a 10-speed automatic will be available, with the latter developed together by Blue Oval and GM.

Ford offers the 2018 Mustang both in coupe and convertible version, and both of them have an RWD system. Price, power output, and fuel efficiency remains unknown, but we will not wait too long to find that out because Mustang will be launched this fall.
