2018 Ford Mustang With Right-Hand Drive Has Been Spied


Ford presented the new Mustang which went through the mid-cycle update at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show, and the next step for the American carmaker was a facelifted model for other countries and markets. The S550 Mustang is currently at the top of the sales list when it comes to sports coupes, and this is not a surprise. With new 2018 Mustang facelift, Ford will try to keep this car at the very top as the sales in the US should start this fall.

The photo you can see here is taken by Mustang6G forum member K-Roll302, and obviously, this vehicle will not hit the US market. We can conclude that because the steering wheel is on the right side and if we take a closer look at the license plate and exhaust pipes, it is clear that this is the pre-production test mule.

At the rear end of the 2018 Ford Mustang, there are clear C-shaped taillights, indicating that this model is intended for Europe (Britain to be more precise). The front segment features LED headlights with clear side reflectors whereas the wing and wheels are painted in black which implies that this car, in particular, is equipped with the Performance Package.

The 2017 Ford Mustang received only two stars by the Euro NCAP, and after this disappointing result, Ford was determined not to make the same mistake with the new facelifted 2018 model. This is the reason why the Europeans will find the new Ford Mustang with rear seat belt pre-tensioners, and safety features such as Autonomous Emergency Braking, Pre-Collision Assist, and many others.



Under the hood of the 2018 Ford Mustang, there are a 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine and the 5.0-liter Coyote. Both units have been updated, and the 2.3-liter turbocharged one comes with a lot of torque for its size, whereas the 5.0-liter V8 is naturally aspirated and it sports dual injection and a higher compression ratio resulting in additional power. What is brand-new on the 2018 Stang is an optional 10-speed automatic transmission that Ford developed together with GM.
