The 2018 Ford Mustang has debuted already, but Ford was light on the details at the time. 

A fleet brochure for the new Mustang has made an appearance on the internet, however, providing details that haven’t been officially unveiled by the American automaker.

The new Mustang is heading to dealerships in the U.S. this fall, but you won’t have to wait until then to see what standard features and packages will be available. According to the brochure, the 2018 Ford Mustang will come standard with a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine, a limited-slip differential, six-speed manual transmission, air conditioning, power windows and door locks, remote keyless entry system, electronic power-assisted steering, 4.2-inch LCD screen with SYNC, LED headlights, signature lighting and rear turn signal lamps, front and rear stabilizer bars and Intelligent Access with push-button start.

Standard safety features include AdvanceTrac electronic stability control, four-wheel anti-lock brake system (ABS), power-assisted four-wheel disc brakes, illuminated entry system, individual tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS), LATCH, MyKey, perimeter alarm, Personal Safety System for driver and front passenger with dual-stage front airbags, rear view camera, SecuriLock Passive Anti-Theft System and SOS Post-Crash Alert System. Additional standard airbags include driver’s knee, glove-box-door-integrated knee and front-seat side, while the Fastback model also gets side-curtain airbags.

    Looked at a ’17 GT at Jim Hudson Ford in Lexington, SC recently with every color/option I want except for the axle ratio and FRPP #2 Performance Package. Dreaming of making it happen and pay for the mods. Leery of 10 speed automatics and dual fuel injectors until they’ve been on the market a few years – should I be?

  • robert radler

    Based on Ford’s recent reliability stats, yes, you should be. I’d also look into crash tests, as the new Mustang flunked the Australian tests very badly, as in two stars. And, I’ve made Mustang commercials for Ford, so this is kinda sad, although I do like the styling and it’s not as claustrophobic as the new Camaro.

    Without the standard lane alert, collision avoidance, blind spot alert systems etc. It will still get the poor crash ratings in Europe and other foreign countries that the Aussie below crows about.

    The dual FIs serve to help prevent carbon buildup that are prone to DI engines. If you are going to chip your system with a Cobb or something similar, manual transmissions typically hold power better than automatic counterparts. However, if it is the exact 10 speed going into the F150 and Raptor, then it has plenty of buffer as those engines put out a ton more hp and torque.

    I read where many 3.5L eco-boost motors had carbon problems due to DI – is dual fueling supposed to correct this? I’ve had a preference for automatic transmissions for decades, especially when properly modified when necessary. Thanks for the response.

  • ‘Murika

    ALL DI’s from ANY auto OEM has carbon problems. It is inherent in the design of DI engines.

    Even PFI engines have some carbon buildup but it isn’t has bad. Knowing this, if you switch between the two depending on load and engine conditions, this should, hopefully, prevent massive carbon buildup entirely. Only time will tell though.

    The big reason nobody has done this previously is simply due to cost. The engine would need 2x as many fuel injectors and would require a more complex fueling strategy + additional high pressure fuel rails = more difficult engine packaging = more cost all around.

    About half these are government-mandated; most of the others are available on everything larger than a subcompact.
