2018 Ford Mustang vs 2017 Ford Mustang
Over the span of many decades, the Ford Mustang has enabled legions of sports cars enthusiasts to enjoy its beautiful design and engaging driving experience. Ford gave the iconic muscle car a thorough makeover for the 2018 model-year, with a sleeker design, improved performance and many new state-of-the-art technologies. In this 2018 Ford Mustang vs 2017 Ford Mustang comparison, we highlight these upgrades.
The most dramatic change for the new Mustang is its exterior design, which is sleeker and more athletic. It features a lower, remodeled hood and grille that result a leaner look and refined aerodynamics, as well as new upper and lower front grilles, and a new position for hood vents. Also, the 2018 Mustang now comes with all-LED front lights, including the signature lighting, low-beams, turn signals, efficient projector high-beams and available fog lamps. The rear of the car features revised LED taillamps that have a more technical look, as well as a new bumper, fascia and available performance spoiler.

What's new for the 2018 Ford Mustang?
The 2018 Mustang sees a number of performance upgrades as well. New shock absorbers make for better ride control, a new cross-axis joint in the rear suspension leads to increased lateral stiffness, and innovative stabilizer bars bring sharper response and handling. The new Mustang also offers the available new MagneRide damper technology, which optimizes ride and handling in all situations. Also, the new 10-speed automatic transmission — available with both EcoBoost and V8 engines — is the best automatic transmission that the Mustang has ever offered. Compared to the previous six-speed, the new 10-speed transmission has quicker shift times, better low-speed tip-in response and significantly reduced friction losses.
The new Mustang offers new advanced technologies that result a higher level of personalization. This includes the 12-inch all-digital LCD screen in the dashboard, which has a customizable instrument cluster that offers three separate views — Normal, Sport and Track mode. Also, the new Mustang MyMode with memory function enables drivers to save their favorite drive settings, including suspension and steering preferences. Additionally — on the Mustang GT — the Active Valve Exhaust System features a customizable engine note soundtrack to match the entire acceleration range.
