Right after revealing the 2018 Mustang coupe, Ford unveiled the 2018 Mustang Convertible.
The convertible gets all the same important changes as the coupe. The big changes come from the inside, where a 10-speed automatic transmission instead of a 6-speed, the 2.3-liter 4-cylinder and 5.0-liter V-8 engines get upgrades, and the 3.7-liter V-6 goes by the wayside. 2.3 has unspecified upgrades, but we know that the 5.0 is adding direct injection.
What will also be offered is the MagneRide suspension and active valve exhaust will be optional. MagneRide uses magnetorheological shocks with a metal-infused fluid that makes the shocks firmer when electrical charge is given. These shocks will be offered in a Performance Pack on the coupe, so we suppose same thing for the convertible.
New is warning for forward collision with emergency braking and detection for pedestrians
Inside, the convertible adds the same 12-inch customizable digital instrument cluster from the coupe. This cluster has a memory option that remembers your driving preferences – MyMode. Also new is warning for forward collision with emergency braking and detection for pedestrians.
The droptop’s changes echo the new front end and rear end designs of the coupe, on the outside. Up on the front, the headlights are resculpted, the lower fascia flares out instead of in, and the outer air intakes take on a much more complex shape.
Ford also sais that the car will be in three new colors and a it will have choice of 12 wheels.
The 2018 Ford Mustang Convertible will be on sale at the end of the year.
