2018 Ford Mustang
Why Buy the 2018 Ford Mustang?
We could list a million different reasons why you could and should want to buy a 2018 Ford Mustang, but the best two are probably these: you don’t have one already or, if you do, you’re ready to upgrade. The 2018 Ford Mustang represents the best this automotive legend has ever been.
This year sees a few very impressive cosmetic tweaks, but underneath that unmistakably attractive Mustang body Ford has considerably upped the Mustang’s technology, transmission, and engine game. As ever, the Mustang is available in coupe or convertible form and with a decent range of power and performance to suit a wide and ever growing audience.
Which Ford Mustang Should I Buy?
If you’re a Mustang enthusiast, nothing less than one with the 460 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. V-8 under the hood will do, but everyone else ought to approach the current generation with a much more open mind. The standard engine is now the 2.3-liter EcoBoost, which has definitely proven itself a worthy inclusion, and now boasts 310 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque that’s going to be just fine for plenty of buyers.
The lineup now consists of the EcoBoost Fastback, EcoBoost Premium Fastback, EcoBoost Convertible, GT Fastback, EcoBoost Premium Convertible, GT Premium Fastback, GT Premium Convertible, Shelby GT350 and the Shelby GT350R. For looks and value for money, we’d go for the EcoBoost Premium Convertible with its MSRP of $36,100, stunning style, and an excellent and reasonably economical four-cylinder engine.
Can I Drive a Ford Mustang in the Winter?
Mustangs are rear-wheel drive and, let’s be honest–rear-wheel drive and snow and ice are not a good combination unless you’re a Scandinavian rally driver. Having said that, plenty of people who live somewhere where it gets cold in the winter don’t have all-wheel drive and get used to it. Fitting a good quality set of winter tires will help quite a bit, but, of course, if you live somewhere like Florida or California you’ll probably be just fine all year round.
If you love the idea of a convertible but you’re concerned about the practicality of a soft-top in harsh winter conditions, don’t be. The folding soft-top of the Mustang is well made, insulated and durable, and although it won’t hold the heat as well as a hard-top in winter, you won’t be uncomfortable either.
Are Ford Mustangs Good Cars?
If being devastatingly good-looking, fantastic to drive, very reasonably priced, and having one of the most iconic names in the entire auto industry is going to interest you, then yes, the 2018 Ford Mustang is very good.
In years gone by, this was a car that sometimes got by on its looks and iconic status alone, but the latest model stacks up in terms of practicality, functionality, capability, and advanced technology and connectivity with any of its rivals. The Mustang is available in some fantastic colors too, which now include the stunning Orange Fury. If it’s your particular style, you can also opt for those fabulous double racing stripes in various colors to adorn your Mustang. Yes, indeed, Mustangs really are very good cars.
