Geez the car does look aweful. The sliver-thin DRL LED's are still dull and dim, not hardly even visible in the shade. They need to give them some LIFE!!!!! Someone needs to come up with a LED bulb upgrade that brightens this things front end up, it's just so bland and sleepy looking.. The metallic orange is just "Tangerine Scream" from the Focus ST. Identical to my neighbors 14' ST. Let's have a nice purple or something. And the Crimson color looks like "Root Beer" brown. But it's name puts it in close se proximity to the Ruby red. And as the OP said, the front end is truly disgusting. The front lower chin spoiler and lip are WAY to high off the ground and angles upward!!!!!, does Ford want this thing to go airborne after 88 mph? What a mess. And it still has Mid 70's Toyota Celica GT tail lights. Same old interior and crappy Pirelli All season tires on base cars. The car is also said to have gained 45-65 lbs from more standard "dumb distracted driver aids"..... Well, it looks fatter. Yuck. This could be the first mustang "I don't buy" in 38 yrs. absolutely hideous. FMC is finally going down the drain. Sad!!!!!

It looks like the arm rest/cupholder/shifter area isn't raised or padded like I initially thought, it just has some stitching in front of the shifter. I also wonder what it'll take to swap in the base model version of the 8" touch screen into my '16, and whether or not it'll be worth it. I just want some Apple CarPlay, dammit.

Yuck, atleast this will only be in production for 2 years. I'm not planning on a new one for atleast 3 years so maybe they'll get it right on the next one.

#1 upgrade, IMHO is the exhaust. Orange PP car in video, doing donuts sounds great.
Has Ford announced the HP for the '18 yet?

FORD FTW

Thanks for posting!
Disappointed I didnt get a PM about this.
Looking for pics of brakes, front knuckes if anyone has any.

To those who track, this front end is a MASSIVE improvement.
This is form following function.
Several track rats have dropped the current nose or had to add large splitters due to aero buffeting lift forward of front axle.
I saw a stock stang with only stock center hood latch go into "tank slappers" at 130. Looked like eddy shedding Tacoma Narrows style. Its like a standing wave bouncing left right left etc trapped in the upper grill area pressure forward. Nasty if it sets up.

Heard there are cookies for the track crowd like easier to add brake ducts and additional radiators in fender wells for trans and oil coolers.
Yall need to recognize the tech in the 2018 is substantial: 12:1 + Direct and Port injection + Mag ride?

If GT350 doesnt get DI+PI, then it will be easy to tune an 18 GT to GT350 power levels if not higher.
From a tuners perspective 5.2L PI<<5.0L DI&PI. That 0.2 liters cant touch DI in a forced induction arrangement.
We will likely see a 750-800RWHP moderately durable and sustainable limit, and streetable 1000rwhp on stock motor.

Dont like the front end? Totally understand and respect that impression. Dont worry, youll only be looking at it in the mirror for a split second before it passes you..

God Bless Ford!

Great photos. I still hate the area directly below the fog lights on the 18's. I love a lot of the other new features, but give me the 15-17's all day.

Gotta say it but for a stock exhaust, well assuming thats the optional acitve exhaust with valves open, it sounds absolutely amazing!

Still not sure about the front, but cosmetic stuff is easily fixed. The extra power and 10-speed will make it a hit and quite a leap in performance from the old car.

Really nice, I have no issue with the front end, it's a Mustang GT that is all I really care about as far as the exterior goes. - as far as color - yellow, orange or red....Premium, MagnaRide.
The guy doing donuts in the orange fury as got a set of cojones - that concert wall couldn't be more than 3-4 feet from the rear end on some of those circles..
