Ford Motor Company is planning to provide a mid-cycle enhancement to the Mustang for the 2018 model year. Despite this expected mild redesign, leaked dealership documents confirm the Shelby GT350 model will be largely unchanged for 2018 model year.
The documents published on enthusiast website Mustang6G show that the only material change to the 2018 GT350 is the addition of new exterior colors. The website goes on to claim that the reason for the carryover stance is because the planned mild redesign is expected to bring GT350 design cues to the rest of the Mustang lineup.
In addition to a more GT350-like exterior, the 2018 Mustang is expected to gain Ford’s new 10-speed automatic transmission.
It is also expected that Ford will add a range-topping Shelby GT500 to the 2018 model year, which will likely have power figures in excess of 700 horsepower to combat the Dodge Hellcat models.
