2018 Ford Mustang Spied Rolling Around In Detroit With LED Rings

When it comes to the Mustang, Ford is putting on a brave face, both figuratively and literally speaking.

The Blue Oval responded to reports about dwindling demand resulting in a higher-than-normal inventory and a temporary halt in production, as well as the Chevy Camaro beating it last month in US deliveries, by stating that it still is the best seller in its segment year-to-date.

At the same time, it is working on a revamped version that should bow out some time next year as a 2018 MY car. Heavily camouflaged cars are already out on the streets of Detroit in both coupe and convertible guise, which suggests that both body styles will be available when the order books open.

The cladding on the prototypes prevents us from figuring out the changes Ford’s designers will implement, but they are rumored to be substantial enough to make it stand out from the current model. The focus seems to be up front where we can see new LED rings on the headlights peeking out from the camouflage.

What we do know is that the 2018 Mustang will get a new, 10-speed auto transmission, which (ironically) has been co-developed with GM and is already available in the Camaro. If we had to guess, we’d put our money in the engine range receiving some fine-tuning, too, and the cabin getting a mild freshening up, too.
