2018 Ford Mustang Pricing Starts At $25,585

Following yesterday’s announcement of performance specifications, Ford has revealed the 2018 Mustang will be priced from $25,585 when it goes on sale in the United States this fall.

Costing $400 more than the 2017 model, the updated Mustang comes equipped with a newly standard 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine that produces 310 hp (231 kW) and 350 lb-ft (474 Nm) of torque. It replaces the previous 3.7-liter V6 which developed 300 hp (223 kW) and 280 lb-ft (379 Nm) of torque. Despite costing more than the previous entry-level Mustang, the new model is a bit of a bargain as the previous EcoBoost variant started at $26,195 so owners are looking at a saving of $610.

Unfortunately, that’s where the saving ends as the 2018 Mustang GT starts at $35,095 which is a $1,900 increase from the previous year. That’s a pretty steep jump but the car comes equipped with an upgraded 5.0-liter V8 that produces 460 hp (343 kW) and 420 lb-ft (568 Nm) of torque which is an increase of 25 hp (18 kW) and 20 lb-ft (27 Nm). This enables the model to accelerate from 0-60 mph in less than four seconds.

Last but not least, the 2018 Shelby GT350 will be priced from $57,145 which is a $1,000 increase from last year. It continues to be powered by a familiar 5.2-liter flat plane crank V8 engine.

    Seems like a great value (similar to VW GTI, Honda Civic Si, Ford Focus ST) for a turbocharged rear wheel drive sports car. But for about $10k you can get AWD and a more practical body style (Focus RS), or a 5.0L V8 if you want to go that route.

      You really have to get the V-8. It’s just the character of the car.

        For a Mustang I agree. But then the EcoBoost has a better weight balance. GT is top heavy. The Challenger (even V6) is worse. I personally like the Focus RS. If you want a well balanced rwd car, there is nothing better than a Mazda Miata. Subaru/Toyota twins are close. The Fiata ruins the chassis with its heavier turbocharged engine.

          The Challenger is just the worst in all respects. I can assure you from personal experience that the Mustang GT is a very well balanced car.

    It’s so cheap compared to it’s price tag in Europe 🙁 (starts in the 40k€)

    I honestly don’t know what to say about the exterior. The renderings looked awesome, but the execution of it being bought to reality isn’t so good. I’ve seen it in person and wasn’t so impressed.

      I wouldn’t worry about it. You own a Challenger, so you won’t be seeing the Mustang’s front end all that much.

    It cost 30k in ’98 to get a 305 horsepower Mustang. Adjust that for inflation and today’s model is even more of a bargain.

    $25,585 = £19,506. I wish it was that simple…
