Athletic and Restyled: Ford Unveiled Its 2018 Mustang GT Convertible

Only two shots of the new, quite beautiful, Blue Oval’s drop-top have been kindly released, but they made it clear. The Ford’s open-top version looks like its hard-top sibling but without a roof. Just because. There are some styling updates for both versions including new bumpers and reshaped lights, a wider, huger grille, along with a lower hood and a sharper exterior look (not to mention 12 wheel options along with three color choices). Looking it another way, all the modifications for the hard-top coupe, are true for the convertible to the same degree.

Say “bye-bye” to V6. To enhance performance, Ford will offer a choice of a 2.3-liter turbo four-cylinder EcoBoost or a 5.0-liter V8 drivetrain to customers, as well as a six-speed manula or ten-speed automatic transmission. The first 2.3-liter EcoBoost will let you stick with 310 ponies while the second one, V8, will deliver 435 horsepower. Inside the convertible, there is the stunning MyMode system to save your driving settings, an active exhaust system and the 12-inch fully-digital gauge cluster. Full specs and pricing of the Mustang GT Convertible have not yet been announced, but are expected to be revealed till this fall.
