If you are one of the many Canadian drivers who have always dreamt of driving a Mustang consider this your cue to make a move, because the 2018 Ford Mustang GT 500 has taken everything you know and love about the Mustang and supercharged it. Here we will look at a few of the many great highlights of this highly anticipated vehicle, so take a deep breath and prepare to meet a ride unlike any other.
Ready to roar
This beast of a vehicle will be the first production turbocharged V8 Mustang ever made. It is expected to be powered by a Coyote 5.0L twin turbocharged V8 engine featuring direct fuel injection and is tipped to offer in excess of 750 horsepower and 700 lb/ft. of torque, making it the most powerful vehicle in its class. Drivers will also have the choice between a 6-speed manual and a 10-speed automatic transmission.
Hug every turn
Controlling all of that power is easy thanks to an array of high tech features, including the use of light and strong materials such as titanium, carbon fibre and aluminum. These cutting edge materials help to increase vehicle rigidity while decreasing weight, resulting in a more efficient, responsive and dynamic ride. Furthermore, Brembo brakes and extra-wide Michelin Pilot Sport tires are included, combining beautifully to maximise traction, feel and control through every twist and turn.
Unlike some other sports cars, the 2018 Mustang GT 500 feels just as good as it looks, starting with the high quality leather Recaro seats that combine a stunning look with an ergonomic design and opulent touch. An LCD instrument cluster makes controlling your Mustang’s many features and functions easy, while the available heated steering wheel will be a feature that Canadian drivers will cherish all winter long. This remarkable ride even boasts an independent rear suspension that makes every drive a whole lot smoother.
Make an impression
Expect to be turning heads everywhere you go in your new Mustang, as everything from its sleek lines and deep bumper to its muscular look are guaranteed to make an impression. Drivers will also have an array of ultra-modern exterior colours to choose from, including Race Red, Shadow Black, Lightning Blue, Orange Fury, Ruby Red Metallic and Ingot Silver. Interior colours available include Tan, Ceramic, Midnight Blue, Ebony and Showstopper Red.
You and your passengers can rest easy in the new Mustang GT 500 as it comes with a wealth of safety features, including a suite of strategically positioned airbags, 4-wheel Anti-lock Brakes, and a rear-view camera.
