New look, more performance for 2018 Ford Mustang
The world's best-selling sports coupe has been given a facelift. The most advanced Ford Mustang ever is set to hit Australian shores in 2018 with a host of technological improvements and a sleeker look.
The vehicle is also more powerful. Just how fast the car will go and how quickly it'll get there have not been revealed, however, the 2.3-litre EcoBoost four-cylinder engine is said to offer performance advantages versus the outgoing 3.7-litre V6.

Fans of the 5.0-litre V8 engine will also be impressed - the engine has been thoroughly reworked so it's more powerful and revs higher than any Mustang GT before.
Its exterior is a definite talking point. The look is more athletic, although lovers of the previous look may take a while to catch on. The remodelled hood is lower with repositioned vents and it features a new grille for refined aerodynamics.
Inside, the Mustang makes available Ford's first 12-inch all-digital LCD screen in the dashboard. This all-new customisable instrument cluster can be personalized, offering three separate views. Mustang MyMode with memory function allows customers to save their favourite drive settings, including suspension and steering preferences.

With a dozen available alloy wheel designs and fresh exterior color choices, keen buyers can order a Mustang with the look they're after.
It's this theme of customisation where the Mustang really separates itself from the competition, and previous models.

"We're bringing the new Mustang straight to the people." said Joe Hinrichs, president of The Americas. "The new Mustang is our best ever, based on more than 50 years as one of the iconic sports car in America and now, the world,"
The new mustang will be available in America at the end of this year, but Australians will need to wait until sometime in 2018.
