Ride of the Week: The 2018 Mustang Gets New Tech And A Sharp Refresh

The sixth-generation Mustang has proven to be a big hit and Ford hopes to continue that success with the car’s 2018 refresh. More than the usual nip and tuck, the car gets a sharper, more menacing front end that’s fitted with a set of all-LED lights, a first for the Mustang lineup. The rear end also gets tweaked with revised LED taillamps, a new bumper, and an optional performance spoiler.

On the performance side, the car receives suspension updates and optional MagneRide damper technology as well as a reworked manual, a 10-speed automatic, and a more powerful V8.

The in-car tech gets a major upgrade with the Mustang’s first all-digital dashboard that features a 12″ screen with an array of customization options and mode-specific displays for normal driving, sport, and track use. Ford is also adding a selection of driver assist technology such as Pre-Collision Assist with pedestrian detection, distance alert, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist and a Driver Alert System.

The new 2018 Ford Mustang goes on sale this Fall.
