2018 Ford Mustang Could Get A New Performance Package

Ford is reportedly planning a new performance package for the 2018 Mustang GT which will allow it to directly rival the Camaro SS 1LE.

Reportedly dubbed the Performance Package Level 2, leaked dealer ordering guides first gave mention to the new variant in November last year. Almost a year later, additional details about the upgrade have emerged, Road & Track reports.

Recently, a dealer ordering guide revealed that the Performance Package Level 2 will be fitted with a set of new 19-inch wheels that come standard with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, the same rubber used by the Shelby GT350R. Beyond the additional traction these tires will provide, additional suspension changes can be expected, inevitably increasing mechanical grip even further.

At this stage, no other details about the package are known and in a statement, a Ford representative simply said there was “no news to share on Performance Pack Level 2 today.”

    Wait, does that mean that now it’ll be even more than the $53k price tag we just saw for the loaded regular 2018 GT? This is making no sense. The SS 1LE, which gets a full interior redo in Alcantara, e-lsd from the ZL1, etc., etc., comes in at $47k and easily obtained at $42k in the real world. If this GT performance pack 1LE contender is close to $60k, who in their right mind wouldnt get a GT350 instead?
