Across the sea they go - Ford’s not-quite-tamed Mustangs, their hoofs spitting smoke and chrome in equal measure. These ponies have been freed from the confines of their corrals, and they’re forcing waves to bend with every V8 whinny.
London will never be the same.
According to Automobile Magazine, Ford is sending its Mustang overseas - with the 2018 platform debuting in England. This proves a momentous occasion. Never before has the Big Blue Oval premiered a single car simultaneously across the globe, but this 5.0L beast will arrive in North American and European dealerships alike.
Drivers, we know, will be ecstatic on both sides of the pond.
Anchored by a best-in-class Coyote drivetrain, the 2018 Mustang promises 460 HP and 420 lb.-ft of torque. The new 10-speed automatic transmission improves acceleration, allowing the platform to race from 0 to 60 in only 3.9 seconds; and the exclusive Drag Strip mode yields a blitz of power, engaging the AWD for turbocharged cornering. This pony has no equal.
With the launch of the 2018 Mustang, Ford is connecting the world to unprecedented power - and we know that this platform will soon conquer every international chart.
Too often has comfort belonged to the crossover market, with big-bodied platforms delivering the plush fabrics and soft-touch materials drivers crave. These models monopolize space, style, and convenience; and they prove unwilling to share with their fastback brethren.
The 2017 Mustang GT Premium doesn’t need their permission. This Ford pony-car offers comfort to the sports vertical, redefining driver expectations with every mile.
According to US News, the 2017 GT Premium embraces its name. Within this pony platform drivers will discover a wealth of upscale options, including:
Leather-Trimmed Bucket Seats - which ensure optimal comfort through their multi-level heating and cooling functions.
Dual-Zone Climate Controls - which allow for custom temperatures.
Sophisticated Trims - which define the doors, headliners, and console panels with vinyl and leather.
Accent and Ambient Lighting - which help to reduce road glare through soft, eye-friendly shades (including the signature Ice Blue).
These elements distinguish the 2017 Mustang GT from the competition, with Ford fusing the cabin with a sleek new design. Complementing technologies (including a nine-speaker audio system and the SYNC 3 infotainment console) further enhance the highway experience.

A sound cuts through the night - loud and relentless, shattering the midnight haze. It’s the roar of a Mustang, with more than 400 horses stomping their way through a neighborhood. The car revs down the street and in its wake leaves a trail of frustrated families. There’s no way to sleep through the chrome cacophony, and men and women curse Ford from their beds.
This proves an all too common scenario - with Mustang fans rousing their neighbors with every press of the pedal. The V8 engine can’t be denied... or ignored; and too often does this pony-platform undermine the quest for sleep.
Don’t fret, B.C. families. Ford will soon change this. According to USA Today, the Big Blue Oval is introducing a revolutionary technology to drivers - fusing the 2018 Mustang with Stealth Mode capabilities. This function automatically lowers the car’s performance output, utilizing engine damping and precise active valve control to ensure a quiet ride. Ignitions will now earn only 72-decibels (comparable to a dishwasher).
Through this, the 2018 Mustang will silently glide down every street - maintaining that much-craved neighborhood peace. Stealth Mode will prove essential for the Lower Mainland.
Afraid that this active valve option will lessen performance? USA Today notes that drivers can automatically disengage the technology as needed, allowing them to open the throttle once they’ve left their homes. No compromise is required.

Speed is no longer a luxury. It’s instead a right - with Ford delivering a class-shattering experience to the Lower Mainland. As the 2018 Mustang gallops its way toward dealerships, drivers are discovering that fastback is far more than name.
According to Fox News, the new Mustang boasts a 5.2L V8. This beastly powerpoint utilizes direct-injection technology and multi-port capability to generate 460 HP. Its RPM ratio soars to 7,800 and its free-flowing intake system ensures superior responses. What should most delight B.C. drivers, however, is the inclusion of Ford’s exclusive Drag Mode.
Fox News explains that this function - which is available on the GT and GT350 variants - allows the Mustang to blitz down the the road. It pairs Launch Control technology with a custom gear shift cycle, enabling the engine to experience greater torque (up to 420 lb.-ft). This creates a burst of speed and lets the platform surge from 0 to 60 in less than four seconds. The acceleration is smooth, fluid, and undeniably fun.

There’s a monster on the highway - a snarling V8 beast with a line-lock growl. It prowls down B.C., its RWD teeth tearing up the pavement; and its 10-speed automatic transmission lets it blitz toward its prey, conquering every corner with hunter-like precision. This is the 2018 Ford Mustang and it’s perfectly savage.
Drivers may, therefore, be surprised to see it paired with such a sweet campaign.
According to CNET, Ford is celebrating its 2018 Mustang in true summer fashion - helping drivers beat the heat with ice cream. A fun flavor (Orange Fury) has been released in both California and New York. This treat, which draws inspiration from the pony-car’s latest color addition, offers soft-serve goodness, pairing two vanilla cookies with a massive scoop of sherbet. An edible potato wrapper surrounds the entire snack for extra texture.
With every bite, Orange Fury ice cream leaves drivers impressed - just like its namesake, the 2018 Mustang. This pony-car (which is scheduled for an early fall arrival) promises exceptional performance, with a 5.0L Coyote V8 nestled beneath its hood. This should deliver best-in-class speeds, with critics anticipating HP ratios of more than 435.
That’s certainly worth another scoop.

An empty road waits before you - free of passing cars and pedestrians. Its lanes are wide; its pavement is smooth; and it proves a temptation too great to resist. You want to drift.
With the release of the 2018 Mustang, Ford will help you.
The Detroit News reports that Ford is bringing new power to its signature pony-car - fusing the 2018 Mustang with electronic line-lock capabilities. This function allows drivers to perform perfect burn-outs, sending all torque to the rear wheels and (carefully) negating the front brake safeguards. This lets the tires spin for fifteen seconds and creates a cloud of satisfying smoke.
Line-lock technology has been available on past Mustang models. Never before, however, was it a standard feature - and it certainly was never offered on the lower trim engines. Now drivers of the GT and the EcoBoost alike can share in the fun. As Mark Schaller, the brand’s market manager, explains in an interview with The Detroit Press, “We didn’t want (our) customers to miss out.”
Will you be taking advantage of the latest line-lock innovation? We certainly will!
The 2018 Mustang should arrive in B.C. by the fall. To learn more about this platform contact our team today.
The expectations prove high - with drivers clamoring toward the Ford stables, trying to catch a peek at the 2018 Mustang. This pony has been touted as the next generation of B.C. racing; and there’s much at stake with its impending release.
The Key West team thinks it will satisfy. After all, this Mustang has been designed for rough rides.
According to the Bucks County Courier Times, Ford has reinvigorated its signature sports car. This platform - still framed by a 2.3L EcoBoost four-cylinder engine - delivers unbridled style. LED headlamps anchor the front, emphasizing the lean fender profiles; a new chrome bumper sits beneath a black vented grille; and the introduction of a performance spoiler, along with available quad-tips, creates an aggressive rear. These all combine with the revised hood, which has been sculpted to increase overall aerodynamics.
From every angle the 2018 Mustang delights. Ford has carefully designed every line, ensuring that the car delivers both style and speed. Prepare for a true fastback showcase.
Curious about the 2018 Mustang? Come to Key West Ford this fall - when we’ll trot this pony out! We’re already clearing space on our lot and we’ll soon serve as the Lower Mainland’s premier supplier.
It’s the quickest of snaps - a shutter flickering, an image saved. Fast-fingered journalists capture every angle of the 2018 Mustang GT as it rolls onto the runaway; and, in their frenzies, they manage to discover a shocking truth: the redline has been altered.
According to Motor Authority, Ford has redefined the GT’s powertrain - fusing it with a 7,500 RPM redline! This marks a new age of pony performance (its successor could only generate 7,000 RPM) and promises class-shattering responses on the track. Bolstered by a 5.0L V8 Coyote engine and a twin-disc clutch, this platform will dominate the racing season. Direct-injection capability will pair with an improved exhaust system, while a six-speed manual transmission will ensure crisp handling. The addition of a dual-mass flywheel should also impress.
When these features combine, they will allow the 2018 Mustang GT to soar down the road - with critics estimating (at least) a 10% increase in horsepower and torque. This isn’t a pony. This is a monster.
With the reveal of a new redline, the 2018 GT will prove a favorite on the circuit and the sales chart alike; and the upcoming fall arrival date leaves drivers with only a few months to wait.

The equation proves simple - V8 precision multiplied by pony power equals best-in-class performance. With the release of the 2017 Mustang Shelby GT350R, Ford connects drivers to mathematical perfection, fusing the chassis with a series of high-speed numbers. Every spec yields a new record.
As MotorTrend explains, the 2017 GT350R has been crafted for victory, with Ford bringing full-throttle fun to every mile. This pony-car - which serves as the cornerstone of the brand’s racing fleet - impresses on the track, delivering a 0 to 60 acceleration of just 4 seconds! At 1,800 RPMs it sails down the circuit, leaving all other convertibles behind. Prepare to experience turbocharged thrills:
Boasting a four-valve DOHC V8 engine (along with a six-speed manual transmission and multi-link coil-spring suspension system) the new GT350R blazes down every road - with MotorTrend noting a 2.4-mile blitz of just 88.29 seconds. This propels the car past both the finish line and the competition.
