2018 Ford Mustang will get new transmission


The new generation Mustang was released in 2015, and it is now available with restyled body and turbocharged engine, all as standard. The design is still fresh, but the 2018 Ford Mustang will be much better.

Upgrades and restyling will be throughout the whole of the car; internal, external and engines, and there are also rumors of special editions like the Mach 1, which should hopefully debut in 2017.

One way or another, Ford will likely follow the update pace adopted while producing the previous generation of Mustangs; every 10 years is a generation change, and every 5 years is a restyling.

2018 Mustang GT release date

We aren’t expecting to see the new Mustang before mid-2017, its debut will, of course, be at one of the more prestigious American auto shows.

Release date: mid 2017

UPDATED: 2018 Ford Mustang Revealed

2018 Ford Mustang price

Rumors suggest that prices will remain fairly constant, perhaps a slight increase to keep in-line with rising manufacturing costs. This means that the basic EcoBoost engined model should start around $26,000 and the V8 is more than likely to start around $36,000.

2018 Mustang redesign

In terms of exterior design, the new Mustang is expected to get new front & rear fenders, side skirts, LED headlights, exhaust and rims, although that list isn’t exhaustive – there could be plenty of other minor changes that would distinguish the 2018 model from the previous one.

We don’t expect the interior to change much, although perhaps Ford will change the classic dash for something digital.

According to the latest rumors or news, the new Mustang will get a 10-speed auto transmission, first used in the 2017 Ford F-150 with the 3.5 liter V6.

It is said that this transmission will help with gas mileage, making it more efficient and of course, has the added benefit of making the car quicker in a sprint. The current generation Mustang has a 6-speed manual or auto transmission.

Sources also say that the new Mustang will benefit from an increased range of safety tech fitted as standard.

The engine range is likely to stay the same; 3.7 liter 300 BHP, 2.3 liter EcoBoost I4 and the 5.0 liter V8 producing 435 BHP.
However, there is also the option to include the new EcoBoost engines; the 3.5 liter V6 from the Ford SUV’s range for example.

Update: Mustang lost its V6 engine; now engine range consist of EcoBoost I4 and 5-liter V8 which has new fuel injection system. The exact power figures are not yet disclosed.

    The 5.2 litre at 435hp? That’s the voodoo motor that comes in the shelby gt350. I believe they were referring to the 5.0@435hp for the GT.

      YEEEP!.. I caught that too.
