The big piece of news is that the new car will come with a ten speed automatic gearbox. The current Ford Mustang comes with either a six speed manual or six speed automatic gearbox. It is not yet clear if the new transmission will be available in both, the 2.3 litre Ecoboost and naturally aspirated V8s. It is a possibility that only the V8 could get the ten speed gearbox and the Ecoboost continues with the six speed unit. The new gearbox is also used in the Chevrolet Camaro. The 2018 Ford Mustang facelift is eset to get some changes to the exterior. These changes include a new front grille, new front and rear bumpers, new headlights and tail lamps. There is no info on interior changes yet.
A source in Ford says that the company will make an announcement on the facelift Mustang at the Los Angeles Motor Show in November or the Detroit Motor Show in January 2017.
