2018 Ford Mustang GT’s extra power costs extra cash


Ford’s 2018 Mustang online configuration tool is live, and because of that we now know the new Mustang’s pricing. The four-cylinder EcoBoost is $610 cheaper than it was in 2017, and $500 more than the discontinued V6 model, with a total of $26,485. V8-powered GT models see significant price increases for the new year, up $1,900 to $35,995. Choosing the convertible body style on the new Mustang costs $5,500 more than a comparable 2018 coupe.

As mentioned yesterday, the extra cost of the 2018 Mustang does net some impressive performance gains. The EcoBoost Mustang’s torque figures rise by 30 pound-feet to 350, while the horsepower remains at 310. Both power and torque rise in the Mustang GT. Power is up to 460 horsepower, and torque is up to 420. The former figure is also greater than the Mustang’s long-time rival, the Camaro SS.

The 2018 Mustang will begin arriving at dealers this fall. In the meantime, you can spec out your dream Mustang using the Ford configuration tool.
