Ford today launched its online configurator for the newly-updated, 2018 Ford Mustang, revealing that the V8-powered Ford Mustang GT will start at $35,995 MSRP – $1,900 higher than the 2017 model. That $1,900 price bump effects not only the regular Mustang GT fastback, but all V8 models, as well, including the “Premium” versions of both the fastback and convertible.
Meanwhile, the 2018 Ford Mustang EcoBoost will start at $26,485, representing a more modest price increase of $890. That makes it $1,900 more than the discontinued V6 fastback, which for 2017 cost 24,585.
Of course, both the 2018 Ford Mustang GT and 2018 Mustang EcoBoost deliver extra performance. Yesterday, the automaker announced that the V8-powered model would produce up to 460 horsepower – 25 more than its predecessor – thanks mostly to its new dual-injection system. The factory power rating for the base EcoBoost model remains unchanged, but torque will peak 30 lb-ft higher at 350 lb-ft.
Also new for 2018: the Ford Mustang GT and EcoBoost will offer MagneRide adjustable dampers for the first time. The tech, which gives the car continuous damper control using conductive fluid, is available as a $1,695 option, but requires the buyer to also tick the boxes for Equipment Group 101A (EcoBoost) or 301A (GT) for $2,000, and the available Performance Pack ($2,495 for EcoBoost, $3,995 for GT). All told, you’re looking at a $7,690 upcharge to add magneto shocks to a Ford Mustang GT fastback, although a slew of additional equipment comes with it.
