2018 Ford Mustang Has A Pulse

Ford’s given the 2018 Mustang a pulse. Among the changes on the 2018 model is a new start button that pulses when you open the door of the Mustang.

Start buttons that light up are hardly a new thing in the industry. Where things divert from normal with the Mustang is that the “heart beat” is specifically 30 beats per minute. Why, you might ask? Well, Ford says that’s the average pulse of an adult mustang (the horse, not the car).

In addition to the new start button, the 2018 Mustang has a new look and has dropped its V-6 engine in favor of the 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder. The GT model is retaining the iconic 5.0-liter V-8, though it too has been revised with direct injection and a faster redline. Ford has not yet released performance statistics on the revamped Mustang, which will launch this fall.

    I like small details but this one is a bit too cheesy for me.
