Change has been a constant driving force throughout the 50-year-plus history of the iconic Ford Mustang. Throughout the last five decades and change, the pony car has evolved through six distinct generations and undergone a host of redesigns along the way. For the 2018 model year, the famed S550 body style received a plethora of exterior alterations, along with some significant changes under the hood.
As partially detailed in our Top Five Reasons to Buy a 2018 Mustang details, the 2018 Ford Mustang features a host of changes and improvements, including:
- Gen 3 5.0 Coyote Engine
- 10 Speed Transmission
- Digital Instrument Cluster
- Aggressive Front End
- Revised Rear Bumper with Quad Exhaust Tips
The exterior and performance upgrades are typical for a mid-generation redesign, and the 2018 facelift provides enough changes to keep the muscle car community at bay for at least several more years. The major difference between the 2018 refresh and the makeovers beforehand, however, is the way that Ford fans receive and consume information.
In the age of the internet and instant news cycle, Mustang aficionados scoured the web for any content that they could find pertaining to the 2018 Mustang refresh on seemingly a daily basis. Once action star Dwayne Johnson became a pseudo pitchman for the 2018 Mustang, the buzz surrounding the redesign grew louder by the day. Shortly after New Year’s Day, 2017, the automotive community quickly drew its attention to whatever 2018 Mustang updates, no matter how small, trickled in over the days and months that followed.
Once the highly-talked-about rumors were confirmed throughout the spring and the summer, anticipation for the 2018 Mustang reached unprecedented levels leading up to the official release. As the model’s popularity grew, the cries from the masses for aftermarket 2018 Mustang parts grew louder and louder.
With so many changes throughout the body & sheet metal, as well as the engine compartment among other areas, manufacturers were not exactly sure which S550 components would classify as proper 2018 Mustang parts until they were able to check the fitment first-hand. Let’s take a look at some of the major changes that the 2018 Mustang has to offer.
While Ford fans would not get to take a look inside the engine bay until several months after the refresh made waves for the first time, and the horsepower/torque numbers wouldn’t be available until the summer, muscle car fans were able to spot differences to the car’s exterior right away!
In an effort to not only give the redesigned pony car a more aggressive image and to distinguish it from its S550 predecessors, the 2018 Mustang debuted an innovative lowered hood. Not only does the new-look front end differentiate the car’s appearance from other S550s, but the lowered hood will improve the vehicle’s aerodynamics.
Sticking with the front end of the car, astute observers will notice the aggressive front fascia, which sets the tone for the rest of the exterior, by giving the 2018 Mustang a more angular appearance. In an effort to make the car appear leaner, the grille is much narrower and the headlight clusters are thinner than previous models.
Speaking of the lighting system, the 2018 Mustang is the first pony car to have standard LED headlights across the front fascia, regardless of what you are sporting under the hood. The stock LED headlights combined with the aftermarket fog light options can help the 2018 Mustang give off an unforgettable, modern appearance. The new fog lights are just one example of aftermarket 2018 Mustang parts that can help separate your muscle car from the crowd.
In addition to the new-look front end, Ford fans were eager to discover the new paint codes available for the 2018 Mustang all the way up until the vehicle’s official release. Orange Fury is the unofficial standard-bearer for the 2018 Mustang, and a number of paint codes trickled out after January 2017. The brand new Royal Crimson and the much-anticipated return of Kona Blue headline the wide-range of color choices, which also include popular S550 options Race Red, Tipple Yellow, and Ingot Silver among others.
Along with the aesthetic alterations to the exterior, the changes inside the engine compartment had Mustang fans chomping at the bit as soon as they were released. When it comes to mid-generation Mustang redesigns, ‘more speed’ is always the name of the game, and muscle car fans were ecstatic about the gains in both horsepower and torque that the 2018 Mustang offered. The Ford Motor Company quickly confirmed the direct-injection technology for the 5.0L Coyote engine, which opened the door to even more horsepower capabilities.
Building off of the 435 horses of its predecessors, the 2018 Mustang GT will be able to put down 460 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque. The dual-fuel injection 5.0 L engine provides the 2018 Mustang with enough power to go 0-60 MPH in less than four seconds, which beats out the Porsche 911 within the same criteria. Similarly, the 2018 Mustang EcoBoost and its 2.3L engine can max out at 310 horses and 350 lb.-ft. of torque. The increased power to the 2.3L motor will allow the 2018 Mustang EcoBoost to travel 0-60 MPH in less than five seconds time.
In addition to what’s new, Ford owners quickly discovered that something was missing from the 2018 Mustang line: the V6 engine. The Ford Motor Company retired the V6 option for the 2018 Mustang. With the rise of the EcoBoost in recent years, the demise of the V6 motor was not surprising to those within the Mustang community.
With such a powerful engine at their disposal, many pony car owners are eager to load up on aftermarket 2018 Mustang parts that can help set their vehicles apart even further. Between replacement air filters, aftermarket superchargers, and more, there are plenty of new 2018 Mustang parts that can help your engine perform better than its already-lofty standards!
All of those exciting gains in both horsepower and torque would not be possible in automatic GTs and EcoBoosts without the addition of acclaimed 10R80 10-speed transmission. This innovative technology gives automatic 2018 Mustang GT owners the ability to shift gears without losing any torque. The 10-speed transmission provides maximum power, traction, and shift points, and allows the all-new Michelin Pilot Sport 45 tires to not miss a beat.
Additionally, in a nice change from the former six-speed, the new automatic transmission will provide the 2018 Mustang with better responses at low speeds. Manual transmission 2018 Mustang GT owners can enjoy a MT-82 6-Speed and a twin-disc clutch. The transmission alterations allow for more precise shifts and handling the additional power of the Gen 3 Coyote engine! With so many performance opportunities at your disposal, why not purchase new 2018 Ford Mustang parts to enhance the transmission as well as the wheels & tires?
A New-Look Exhaust
The active valve performance exhaust is one of the most notable changes to the 2018 edition of the Ford Mustang and will allow its owners to make changes with just the push of a button. This state-of-the-art technology, which had been used by Roush for the early stretches of the S550 Generation, allows 2018 Mustang owners to tune their exhaust systems like never before. The active valve performance exhausts allow muscle car drivers to adjust not only their sound note but provide the ability to adjust the exhaust flow.
Speaking of sound, while everyone loves a loud exhaust system, 2018 Mustang owners have the power to quiet the noise if they so desire. The all-new Quiet Start feature turns the down the roar of the engine as soon as the keys are turned or the start button is pushed and allows Ford drivers to quiet the exhaust when needed. The quiet start drops the sound level of the new Mustang GT by 10 decibels to a much more tolerable 72 decibels.
In recent years, the addition of aftermarket carbon fiber parts has become one of the hottest trends in the automotive industry, and the excitement is not going anywhere anytime soon. What was once a popular aftermarket add-on became standard inside the 2018 Mustang’s cabin. In an effort to capitalize off of the carbon fiber wave, the 2018 Mustang will feature an all-new Carbon Sport Interior Package. The package features a nifty carbon fiber instrument Panel and Shift Knob along with Ebony Black Seats with Alcantara inserts and Alcantara door inserts.
In addition to the carbon fiber 2018 Mustang parts straight from the factory and the full digital LCD instrument cluster, Ford owners have a great deal of flexibility as to how to customize their inner cabins. For those 2018 Mustang drivers that wish to revitalize where they sit even further, a heated steering wheel, as well as a host of interior color combinations, will make for wonderful aftermarket add-ons!
In addition to all of the aesthetic changes to the interior, the 2018 Ford Mustang will feature a host of safety features that will help secure your vehicle with just the push of a button. The 2018 Mustang features an interior motion sensor, which will help prevent “smash-and-grab” break-ins, while also thwarting potential tow-away thefts. Additionally, locking the car has never been easier. Along with keeping your belongings safe, the 2018 Mustang boasts a number of onboard sensors that track the tire pressure of all four tires, as well as crash-resistant technologies that help keep you safe in the event of a collision.
The sensors bring something new, but the existing safety measures, such as the airbags, have been programmed to be in the correct deployment position, regardless of where the seat in question is positioned. The cutting-edge technology straight from the factory, along with the many aftermarket 2018 Mustang parts available, can help make your inner cabin truly unique, while taking your already-exciting driving experience to the next level!
What would a mid-generation refresh be without a more technologically-advanced suspension system? In an effort to provide the most optimal driving conditions possible, the 2018 Mustang features a number of unique suspension upgrades that will enhance vehicle handling without sacrificing ride comfort. The 2018 Ford Mustang integrates driver control software with several sensors located throughout the car in order to produce suspension results that are not found in any previous model pony car.
Additionally, the 2018 Mustang is equipped with an Independent integral-link rear suspension that is based on a lower H-arm, as well as a vertical link, an upper camber link, and a toe link. The IRS components are designed speciﬁcally to reduce rear-end squat and front-end lift, in an effort to improve your handling, while eﬀectively isolating those annoying noises from the road. The freshly-designed IRS integral-link rear suspension will especially demonstrate its importance during hard acceleration and braking.
As great as your stock system is, like all muscle cars, the 2018 Mustang leaves the factory with a suspension that is practically begging to be altered. Lowering your 2018 Mustang will help with corning and those difficult driving maneuvers while giving your pony car a more aggressive stance at the same time. If you are looking to enhance your suspension system, be sure to check out CJ’s collection of new 2018 Mustang parts!
