If you are one of those people who are willing to splurge money on a good piece of an automobile, then your first preference will be a car which is powerful. Driving a powerful car not only fills you with pride but also fills the surrounding area with the vroom vroom of the engine. Taking a car with a powerful engine for a spin can be a noisy affair. This is how Steve von Foerster, the former chief of vehicle engineering of Ford got an idea for the latest 2018 Ford Mustang GT update. What began as a project to make a noiseless engine ended up producing the most powerful Mustang till date.
This isn’t the first time that an automaker has come up with a way to cut down on the noise produced by the car. A number of cars have the option to alter the exhaust setting in order to emit no noise. But one fine day you forget to do so while parking your car and have to run to the medical store in the middle of the night for some antibiotics. As soon as you fire up your car, the sound fills up the entire neighborhood. If you are lucky, none of your neighbors will dial 911 but it will certainly cause an inconvenience to them. To avoid such a situation, the updated Ford Mustang comes with an automated Quiet Exhaust Mode.
Ford Mustang specs
Among all the previous versions, the 2018 Ford Mustang GT is the fastest and also the most powerful one. The refreshed version of this model will have a new 5.0-liter V8 engine with a port and direct fuel injection. It also comes with a free-flowing intake system which is inspired from the Mustang Shelby’s engine. This particular feature will help boost the output of the previous model’s 435 hp to 460 hp. This new Ford’s engine has the ability to rev around 7,800 rpm.
The updated Ford Mustang will have a Drag Mode, which is a new 10-speed automatic transmission. This feature can activate launch control along with a special shift logic which helps change gears faster. The automaker also confidently claims that once you hit the accelerator, the car can go from zero to 100kmph in less than four seconds. The company has not yet made any official announcement about the price or the launch date of this updated model. But it is assumed that this car will be out for sale by fall next year.
