The king of American muscle cars -- Ford Mustang -- is back with a fresh new design for 2018. Following a reinvention for its 50th birthday in 2015, the Stang was yet to be updated until now. This time, it comes stocked with the latest technology. With a sleeker frame, it is a less brash, more elegant offering from Ford, but it still retains the classic Mustang design features. Aesthetics and driving performance aside, let’s look through the top tech features for 2018.
The GT version of the 2018 Mustang will be the most powerful ever, with 460 BHP being generated by 5.0 liter V8 engine. This is thanks to a re-engineering of the fuel-injection technology, allowing the engine to rev higher than previous versions of the car.
A vehicle appraisal guide for your old car will help you determine what it is worth and then you can consider upgrading to this new Stang. Ford has effectively designed new technology to build something truly powerful. If you combine this with electric power steering and anti-lock brakes, you’ve got a serious driver’s car for a reasonable price.
When it comes to hand-free driving entertainment, few companies are as competent as Ford. SYNC-3 is their new software, which incorporates the latest technology into the 2018 Mustang. There is far more beyond making hands-free phone calls.
The SYNC-3 system can be operated remotely using a smartphone and can act as a WiFi hotspot. While unlikely in a 460 BHP Mustang, the entertainment system means there is no possibility of bored passengers. The SYNC-3 goes beyond the original SYNC software by being more intuitive, with easy to use touch screen and voice commands. The new Mustang is a truly 21st Century vehicle, a long way from its 1960s beginnings.
Personalizable Digital Instrument Display
The great thing about the digital age is that nothing is set in stone. Since all the displays on the new Mustang are electronic, they can be customized depending on the type of driving you are doing. For example, track mode strips away the unnecessary information, so you can focus solely on your speed and revs.
The 2018 Mustang has taken a bold step into the technological world. Popular among classic car lovers, the Mustang has always been reluctant to step away from its mechanical origins. However, the technological advances take nothing away from its performance, aesthetics or charm. They simply take a great muscle car and make it even more powerful and enjoyable to drive.
