2018 Ford Mustang GT, to Appear this Fall, Billed by Ford as the "Fastest Mustang GT Ever"

The proof is in more than a few design achievements – and the heart-pumping peel-out experience.

The new 2018 Mustang GT looks even to give industry standouts like Porsche 911 a run for their money. The crushing 420 pound-feet of torque pushing 460 high-performance horses under the hood comes resultant to a redesigned 5.0-liter V8 engine, coupled with an available all-new, wide-ratio, ten-speed SelectShift® auto transmission, to be sure. But the kicker? This baby's set to roll out clocking zero to 60 mph in as little as 4 seconds.

That's thanks to the new Drag Strip mode, one of five settings driver-selectable in 2018 Ford Mustang. The feature reduces shift up-time to help the new Ford sports car optimize torque, transmission, and the use of its custom-designed Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S tires, included in a newly available Performance Package. That equates to making the most as pertains speed-up and straight-line drive performance.

Ford achieves the beast's acceleratory prowess via dual-fuel, high-pressure direct injection, which dovetails with low-pressure port fuel injection technology to shell out low-end torque and high-rpm power while maintaining efficiency. Even in a new 2018 Ford Mustang with the automaker's EcoBoost powerplant, you can count on a laudable zero-to-60-mph acceleration in as little as five adrenalized seconds. But prominent in the mix is the all-new electronic control system, which not only enables adaptive shifting in real time but also does it quickly enough to make skip-shifts and direct downshifting a breeze. That means low-speed tip-in response a tad better than the new Mustang's 2017 sibling -- a luxury we aspiring performance drivers can appreciate when we're not enjoying the convenience of 2018 Mustang's steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

While we eagerly await this new Ford road warrior, you needn't wait to get the full Mustang experience.
