2018 Mustang Engine
Before we discuss any changes pertaining to the 2018 Mustang Ford engine, we would be remiss if we did not discuss what was missing from the refresh. Beginning in 2018, the Ford Motor Company retired the V6 engine as an option for Mustangs. With the rise of the ultra-efficient EcoBoost engine in recent years, the need for a V6 became obsolete. For 2018, muscle car aficionados were able to choose between either a Mustang GT or an EcoBoost, and both proved to be excellent options.
Much to the delight of the muscle car community, the GT featured a direct-injection 5.0L 2018 Ford Mustang engine that delivered a noticeable punch in low-end torque, which was a stark contrast from its Gen 2 Coyote predecessor. Raising the bar even higher than previous S550 models, the 2018 Mustang engine inside the GT sported horsepower and torque numbers that turned immediate heads on the roadway and the track. The 2018 Mustang GT put down 460 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque, and allowed the vehicle to travel from 0-60 MPH in less than four seconds!
The 2018 Mustang engine inside the EcoBoost became a hot topic as well. The 2.3L motor maxed out at an impressive 310 horses and 350 lb.-ft. of torque. The enhanced 2.3L motor paved the way for the 2018 Mustang EcoBoost to travel 0-60 MPH in less than five seconds time. Though the new model boasted a new 10-speed transmission and a host of suspension upgrades, it was the high-powered 2018 Mustang engine that truly separated the vehicle from other S550s.
As powerful as the 2018 Mustang engine is straight from the factory, however, there is always room for improvement. Similarly, because the model will undoubtedly spike in popularity in the coming months, it is important to do everything that you can to separate your 2018 Ford Mustang from the pack.
While you can always make aesthetic changes to the body & sheet metal and redesign the interior, adding new 2018 Mustang engine upgrades will help you leave your pony car comrades in the dust. Whether you are active on the race circuit, are a part of a robust Mustang club, or if you are simply looking for the latest bells and whistles, you cannot go wrong with a new set of 2018 Mustang engine parts!
