2018 Ford Mustang vs 2017 Ford Mustang
The Ford Mustang is now the best-selling sports coupe on the entire planet. Not just in America. Not just in North America. Not just in the Western Hemisphere. But the entire planet. But that’s not really hard to believe, is it? And it’s certainly not hard to believe that that is going to stay true during the 2018 model year, especially after getting a look at the new Ford Mustang.
That’s because the 2018 Mustang is the most advanced, most powerful and most capable Mustang ever built. And, no, that’s not hyperbole. It’s just a simple fact. As proof, all you need to do is look over this 2018 Ford Mustang versus 2017 Ford Mustang head-to-head model comparison. You’ll see, even when offering fewer engine choices, the new Mustang stands heads and shoulders above the 2017 Mustang.

How the New Ford Mustang Improves Upon the 2017 Ford Mustang by Offering Fewer Engine Options
The phrase “less is more” has always seemed a little strange to us, at least until we got a look at the 2018 Ford Mustang. That’s because the new Ford Mustang offers two powerful and efficient engines to choose from, which is one less than what was offered by the 2017 Ford Mustang. See, the 2018 Mustang lineup no longer offers the former Mustang’s standard 3.7-liter V6 engine. Instead, the new Mustang features the 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine as its standard engine. That’s right, what was once an available engine people had to spend a little more for is now included at the starting price. That means you’re getting the engine that provided 310 horsepower, 320 pound-feet of torque, 21 miles per gallon in the city and 30 miles per gallon on the highway in 2017 for less money in 2018. And you’re getting more for your money, too, as a bump in the transient overboost function will provide even more power and better gas mileage for the 2018 Ford Mustang. That power improvement extends to the new Mustang’s 5.0-liter V8 Coyote engine, as well, meaning you’ll get more than the previous model year’s 435 horsepower, 400 pound-feet of torque, 15 miles per gallon in the city and 25 miles per gallon on the highway.
