EVOLUTION or regression? Debate is already raging over the styling of the 2018 Ford Mustang revealed ahead of its launch later this year.
Some say its an ugly revamp. Others a muscular triumph.
Either way, there will be some buyers still waiting on delivery of the 2016 model vehicles unhappy they won't receive the latest equipment.
Key changes include a lower, remodelled bonnet and grille which have been changed for aerodynamics, while it gets all-LED front lights including signature lighting, low-beams, turn signals, efficient projector high-beams and available fog lamps.
At the back, it gets revised LED taillamps, new bumper, fascia and a performance spoiler is available. A dual-tip exhaust is standard for EcoBoost Mustang, while V8-powered Mustang GT gets a standard quad-tip exhaust.
Most notably, the 2018 Mustang will get more tech gizmos, extra power and more cogs courtesy of a 10-speed automatic transmission.
Among the new technological additions are a 12-inch digital display which will have three different views. It will also get safety kit such as Pre-Collision Assist with pedestrian detection, distance alert, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist and Driver Alert System.
Under the skin, it will get new shock absorbers make for better ride control, a new cross-axis joint in the rear suspension for increased lateral stiffness, and stabiliser bars designed for sharper response and handling improvements.
The new 10-speed automatic transmission, available with both EcoBoost and V8 engines.
Those engines will also gain more power. Exactly how much? Well, Ford is staying tight-lipped.
There will be 12 wheel options and new colours - including the "orange fury" shown on the latest images.
