Introducing the Faster-Than-Ever 2018 Ford Mustang GT—And How to Make It Even Faster


A post shared by Ford Motor Company (@ford) on

A lot of Ford models have been making headlines in 2017, from the new F-150 to the returning Bronco and Ranger. All of these models have their place in the pantheon of automotive history, but for our customers—particularly those who might come to us from outside our locale—a time-tested reputation is only one part of what makes a car like the 2018 Mustang GT so special.

This year also marks the half-way point of the pony car’s sixth generation, which meant a refresh was in order. But Ford didn’t cut any corners in keeping this already-modern Mustang current. They updated the exterior design for style and aerodynamics, while updating the engine lineup and adding new features.

On the 2018 Mustang GT, packing a 5.0-liter Coyote V8 with new parts, the sum of these updates are easy to glean. Now putting out 460 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque, the GT is faster than ever. But thanks to a few key additions to the optional equipment list, it can be made even nimbler.

When once replaces the standard six-speed manual transmission with the new ten-speed automatic, add on the GT Performance Package, and the new MagneRide Damping suspension borrowed from the GT350, the 2018 Mustang GT can hit sixty in under four seconds. Part of that is due to the automatic gear box’s quicker shifts, but also owed to the more aggressive chassis tuning and cornering bite of the added equipment. Even without these options, every GT gets Drag Strip Mode, which puts peak torque under your foot from the moment you step on the gas up to the red line.

Other options are on tap to make your Mustang GT more you. Those in residential areas will love the Active Valve Performance Exhaust, which lets you modulate the Coyote’s roar into a more in-door appropriate voice with “Quiet Mode.” This lowers the engine noise to the decibel of your average dishwasher. The Shaker Pro Audio group is another add-on performance enthusiasts will love—not only does it front a great audio system, but gets a full-color digital LCD display with options to view and store track stats on the fly.

But iconic muscle with no shortage of modern flair and zest is just a sampling of what you’ll find at our Ford dealership in Ravenel, SC. Even beyond our transparent, customer-focused dealership experience, those looking for a good deal on the demanded 2018 Mustang may be surprised to find models listed at just $98 above invoice, with none of the expected closing costs at time of sale. Some call it sorcery. Others look for a catch. But for those coming from Walterboro and further for their vehicular needs, it’s part of what makes acquiring your car from Ravenel Ford worth it.
