2018 Ford Mustang Hits 60 MPH

2018 Ford Mustang Hits 60 MPHThe new drive mode is relatively simple – it keeps the engine on the boil while the gearbox shifts, so drivers have peak power and torque as soon as the next gear is engaged – but it’s undoubtedly effective. Not only will it outrun the current Mustang GT, but it puts the new ‘Stang on par with a base Porsche 911 Carrera.

On top of that, with new Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S tires, a fresh quick-shifting 10-speed automatic, and a new “Drag Strip Mode” that doesn’t pull torque during gear shifts, the 2018 pony can sprint to 60 MPH in—according to Ford— “less than 4 seconds.”

Ford generally doesn’t publish acceleration times for its models, but third-party instrumented tests from Car and Driver and Motor Trend indicate that the 2016 Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang reaches 60 mph in 4.3 seconds and 4.1 seconds, respectively.

Again in North American figures only, Ford confirms 310hp and 350lb-ft for the EcoBoost, marking a 30lb-ft increase. This, combined with Drag Strip mode and the 10-speed auto, promises a 0-60mph time “under five seconds”.

How all of this converts for Australia, exactly, will be revealed closer to the updated Mustang’s 2018 launch. We’ll just have to twiddle our thumbs until then.
