Ford's legendary Mustang is simply one of those cars that make you stare and admire its beauty for a long time. Of course, the 2018 Ford Mustang is more than just for show as it also packs a powerful punch under the hood. The 2018 Ford Mustang however, cannot please everyone. That being said, here are the good and a couple of bad things you will find in the gorgeous 2018 Ford Mustang.

2018 Ford Mustang: The Good

To kick things off, we will no longer be seeing the 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine that makes 310 horsepower and 320 pound-feet of torque as the standard engine of the 2018 Ford Mustang. According to Torque News, the 3.7-liter V6 that cranks out 300 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque has also been dropped for the 2018 Ford Mustang.

There are a couple of reasons why this is a good thing. First is because when you look at the output of the two engines, the additional 10 horsepower and 20 pound-feet of torque is not really something worth bragging about. The other reason is the fact that the engines that are being dropped will be replaced by a new EcoBoost with higher torque that promise to deliver a better performance.

If the exhaust note of the V6 somehow bothers you, then you would be most likely be pleased by the fact that the 5.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine does not have the same problem. As far as fuel economy goes, the 2018 Ford Mustang's EcoBoost engine boasts better output than any of the V6 engines by at least 3 miles per gallon in all aspects. Add those with the new 10-speed automatic transmission for the 2018 Ford Mustang and we really have ourselves a winner.

2018 Ford Mustang: The Bad

Earlier we talked about how the new EcoBoost engine is a good thing for the 2018 Ford Mustang. While that is true in its own way, that fact can also be a bad thing. The 2017 Ford Mustang with the V6 has a lower price tag than the EcoBoost model of about $1,000 difference. That being said, you will basically not have the choice to save up a bit in the 2018 model since the V6 will no longer be one of the standard engine for the base trim. Fortunately, this will be the only drawback in the 2018 Ford Mustang.

2018 Ford Mustang: The Gorgeous

So far, we only have one bad side to the 2018 Ford Mustang and we are about to make things up as we bring another good news to the table. Needless to say, the Ford Mustang is already a car known for its beauty. This year, the gorgeousness takes on another level as Ford adds a few things that make the 2018 Mustang even more eye-catching.

According to The Fast Lane Car, one of the things that make the 2018 Ford Mustang more distinctive is the fact that it has been given a new front overbite reminiscent to a shark's nose. Many people will actually have a hard time telling the 2017 and 2018 Mustang apart but enthusiasts will most likely spot the difference at first glance.
