Another day, another sighting of a camouflage-wearing Ford Mustang; SEMA has managed to acquire a few spy shots of the updated, 2018 Mustang fastback wearing a quad-tip exhaust and a production-look rear fascia. You can find the photos on the official SEMA website.
The 2018 model year is expected to bring moderate cosmetic and technical updates to the Ford Mustang, including the new quad-tip production exhaust seen in these new spy photos, as well as the same brand-new Ford/GM 10-speed automatic transmission as in the 2017 Ford F-150 (with 3.5L EcoBoost) and Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. The pony car is also expected to get new LED-ring daytime running lights, although we can’t tell whether they’re present in SEMA’s recent photographs.
Also expected for 2018 is a new Ford Mustang Mach 1 model, which would revive a nameplate last seen in 2004. Spy photos of that variant reveal that, true to form, it should feature a host of aggressive-looking visual upgrades, slotting above the Ford Mustang GT and providing another performance-oriented alternative to the hard-to-come-by Shelby GT350.
We suspect that the refreshed 2018 Ford Mustang – if not the Mach 1 – will bow at the 2017 Detroit North American International Auto Show this January. Based on recent evidence, it seems conceivable that a new Shelby GT500 could be there, as well.
