There are few cars as iconic as the Ford Mustang, and this week, the Blue Oval celebrated a huge milestone, by way of a Wimbledon White convertible. It marks the 10 millionth Mustang to roll off the line, and the specs are as close as the company could get them to the very first Pony car. We were actually surprised to learn that the first Mustang was a convertible, but hey, you learn something new every day.
As evidence of that, our resident hot shoe Mike Musto recently learned that the Mustang has come a long way in terms of performance. Here’s a taste of what he had to say about the 2018 Ford Mustang EcoBoost:
“Ten years ago, if you’d have told us that one day Ford would produce a 2.3-liter turbocharged inline-4 capable of rocketing a 3,535-pound Mustang to 60 mph in just 5.1-seconds, we would have laughed. But here it is, in the flesh, and by gosh it’s a hoot to drive. And while a six-speed manual transmission is available for the purists, our tester was equipped with the new ten-speed automatic.
The EcoBoost engine loves to rev, and if you play around with SelectShift, you’ll find yourself enjoying the exhaust note that emanates from the rear of the car. As mentioned earlier, our Mustang came equipped with the EcoBoost Performance Package. It is a great addition and one we highly recommend. It includes a 3.55 TORSEN limited-slip rear end, larger brake rotors with four-piston fixed calipers, heavy-duty front springs, a larger radiator, special chassis tuning, and a larger rear sway bar.
You can head here to read his full review, and if you’re interested in getting a Mustang of your own, head over to your local AutoNation Ford dealer. With all the bevy of Mustangs available today, they’re sure to have something that’s up your alley. Just do us a favor a look a little harder at the Grabber Blue ones…
