Ford Mustangs at SEMA 2018

October 31st, 2018

We’re here live in Las Vegas at the 2018 SEMA show and as usual the Ford Mustang presence is strong.

After Ford teased a handful of Mustang builds a few weeks ago, today we got a firsthand look at some of the modified 2018-19 Mustangs and latest and greatest wares for the S550.

Stay tuned here as we add more Ford Mustangs from SEMA 2018.

World champion drifter Vaughn Gittin Jr. and his RTR Vehicles team are working with Ford Performance to provide a definitive collaboration of style, performance and fun with the new Series 1 Mustang RTR Powered by Ford Performance – the latest addition to the Mustang family.

The Series 1 Mustang RTR Powered by Ford Performance features RTR’s signature modern and aggressive styling. The Ford Performance suspension has adjustable sway bars that can change the chassis balance for either passive or MagneRide™ suspensions to suit twisty backroad driving, laying down lap times, drifting or blasting down a drag strip.

A Ford Mustang commercial has been banned in the UK after a full 12 people saw and were offended by the ad. 🙄 They felt so strongly by the ad as to write Britain’s incredibly strict Advertising Standard Authority to complain.

This Ford Mustang commercial features scenes of overstressed and bored office professionals with a voiceover reading the famous Dylan Thomas poem “Do not go gentle into that good night.” The only driving scene features the Mustang pulling out of a parking garage and driving calmly down a city street. That, apparently constitutes aggressive driving in the UK, at least according to the ASA’s standards, which resulted in the ad being banned. Check out this highly dangerous(?) video inside. 🤔

Here’s a good read from Road & Track on the Ford Mustang Performance Pack Two (PP2) after testing it at the Monticello Motor Club in upstate New York.

Sure, the PP2 is not without its issues (namely, possible overheating on the track due to lack of transmission or differential coolers), but the takeaway is that it’s still a worthy addition for track duty.  1.06 g-force on the skidpad is no joke! Catch the article inside and let us know your thoughts.

Ford held a major dealer event this week in which it previewed the 2020 Shelby GT500 (leaked here), and the company also dropped a few major hints at what is to come for Mustang.

More notably, dealers were told that the 4-door Mustang will come with a turbo V8 and is aimed at competing with the likes of the Porsche Panamera and Audi A7.

This tidbit makes it possible that the 4-door Mustang will be distinct from and a separate vehicle than the formerly-Mach1 SUV, which Ford announced would be a full-electric SUV taking cues from the Mustang. 

Certainly, it gives us hope that Ford is laying the future groundwork for Mustang and the V8-engine is still very much part of that.

Buried in a new Ford ad campaign entitled “Built Ford Proud” was an unexpected first teaser of the Hybrid Mustang we expect to debut in the next few years.

The ad, featuring actor Bryan Cranston, provides a glimpse of a engine cutaway which then morphs into a Mustang front end — but one that is different and certainly more futuristic looking than the current model.

The engine cutaway reveals two cylinder banks and four injectors which, if an accurate portrayal of the hybrid Mustang, assures us that it will be V8-powered with an electric motor supporting it.

Check out the full Hybrid Mustang teaser in the video.

Ford is holding its dealer meetings and presentations today where the Shelby GT500 Mustang was previewed to dealers, and now to us via these leaked photos!

Along with these photos, other info coming out of the dealer meeting indicates that the new GT500 will feature between 780 to 790 HP and will offer the 10 speed automatic as an option (manual being standard). Check out more photos and discuss inside.

The out of the box performance of the GT continues to impress. An M6G member was able to run a 11.92 quarter mile (twice) with his bone stock (truly stock with factory 255 width tires). This was accomplished with the A10 10-speed transmission and in drag mode. Of course, it also took some driving skills by the owner.

Read on inside for how he accomplished this and watch the impressive run.
