Facelifted 2018 Ford Mustang Leaked

Many things in automotive aren’t kept secret for long, including the revised 2018 Ford Mustang. Refreshed for the 2018 model-year, the car has officially leaked out in a b-roll video that surfaced online.

As expected, the new Mustang isn’t much different from the 2017 model. The front and rear fascias have been replaced, along with new headlights up front. Casual observers will be hard-pressed to notice the subtle changes, but the headlights now have a droop to them that’s similar to the 2017 Fusion, which are surrounded by a fascia design that’s edgier with a new fog lamp design.

Around back the changes are even more subtle with the primary difference being a new deck-lid spoiler instead of the current car’s integrated lip spoiler.

The leaked video also confirms that the 5.0-liter Coyote V-8 is sticking around thanks to the iconic 5.0 badge on the side. There was speculation that Ford would replace the V-8 engine in the car with a smaller displacement engine.

Expect further details on the 2018 Mustang to be revealed on an official basis in the coming weeks.

    The 2020 model can't come soon enough now.

    meh doesn't do anything for me I feel like it's too similar to the current model.


    I've thought this-century Mustangs (iirc: Sn197 + S550) looked a bit "thick" thru the body.

    Hoping this doesn't...when seen in person

    Official press shots look a lot better:

    I am getting an 80s sports car vibe from the updated rear

    Is it just the angle of the shot or are the subtle changes giving this a major mouth-breather vibe? Yikes. :confused:
