Everyone is always clamoring to know more about the next Ford Mustang. 2018 Mustang information has been scarce from the official source, but enthusiasts and insiders alike have caught spy shots of the legendary sports car, and lately rumors have been swirling regarding some changes and upgrades to the Mustang’s powertrain. It seems like, among other things, the Mustang will be dropping an engine option, but gaining a brand-new suspension.
According to the rumor mill, the 2018 Mustang will no longer offer its 300-hp V6. Instead, this will be replaced by the turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine, which delivers slightly more power with a horsepower rating of 310. However, the Shelby GT350 isn’t going anywhere for at least another model year, and there are whisperings of an 800-hp GT500 model, though there’s nothing to back that claim yet.
Other performance upgrades include a mysterious Performance Package 2, an available 10-speed automatic, a dual exhaust system, and the adaptive MagneRide suspension formerly available only on the GT350.
Official 2018 Mustang information will confirm the truthfulness of these rumors as they’re released by Ford representatives and press releases. Until then, this information will have to tide enthusiasts by as they wait for the 2018 model year’s unveiling.
