All automobile companies are announcing major changes and plans to ensure they are in tune with emerging technologies. Keeping in line, Ford has made a new announcement.
The 2018 Ford Mustang GT will be the fastest Ford car ever and will be able to travel 60 miles within four seconds. It will sport a 5.0 liter V8 engine capable of producing 420 pounds of torque and 460 horsepower. This vehicle featuring a redesigned engine is expected to be launched with a 10 speed automatic transmission. As a result, five driver selectable modes are expected. One such mode is “drag strip” mode capable of going from 0 to 60 within 4 seconds.
Yes, not as fast as a Tesla,we hear you.According to Ford, it will leave other sports cars like the Porsche 911 Carrera far behind in its rear-view mirror. The reason for this is revealed to be the 10 speed transmission. While shifting gears, one loses time. In the new 2018 Ford Mustang GT, the “drag strip” mode is said to overcome this hurdle. This feature is avaialbe for customers who prefer the standard 2018 Mustang. It will come equipped with a 2.3 liter 4 cylinder Ecoboost engine capable of generating 50 feet torque and 310 horsepower. Buyers can upgrade to the 10 speed automatic transmission and performance package enabling them to travel 0-60 in five seconds.
In terms of its annual sales, the Ford Mustang is a smaller brand, especially when compared to the F-Series. However, it is a recognizable iconic brand. In simpler words, these improvements matter a lot.
