The 2018 Ford Mustang in Watertown, CT

Commit to Proven Power and Performance with the 2018 Mustang

You won't find too many models in Watertown that can provide a performance as inspired as the 2018 Ford Mustang. As the proven muscle car in Ford's inventory for decades now, the Mustang continues to innovate with this latest iteration.


Where its predecessors could be inconsistent and weighed down in terms of handling, the newest Mustang embraces the independent rear suspension that can be taken advantage of with every powertrain option. With plenty to dive into regarding this latest model, our team at Shaker's Family Ford is eager to provide all the knowledge needed to make the right choice.

What's New for 2018?

The 2018 Ford Mustang has had a lot of revisions and updates this time around, with the exterior styling perhaps being most prominent. The headlights up front have been depressed into the body more to give them an aggressive "eyebrow ridge" look, the hood has been resculpted, and even the grille has had its shape retooled. The V6 engine is gone for 2018, the MagneRide suspension has been added on, and t here's even the addition of an optional 12-inch digital instrument cluster display for even more clarity on driving details on the go. Even more has been added to the various trims, such as new design elements and performance parts, so take a closer look at the model of your choice to discover all the differences a new model year can make.

2018 Ford Mustang Power & Engine Options in Watertown

When you're deciding on which engine to place at the heart of your own Mustang, you'll have the choice between four different powertrains. The base level 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder EcoBoost engine can produce 310 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque for impressive performance, but more often than not we've seen drivers from Waterbury, Bristol and New Milford jump straight to the mid-level 5.0-liter V8 engine. With 460 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, this V8 option adds a hefty amount of grit for its drivers. And, of course, if you're only interested in the most power you can possibly get, the 5.2-liter V8 engine roars with 526 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque; you'll be leaving your rivals in the rearview mirror without breaking a sweat.

Set Out on the Local Waterbury Roads with Confidence

The exterior look of the Mustang has continued to impress through generations, and the newest 2018 model doesn't deviate. Our customers in Southington and Naugatuck are familiar with the look and sounds of a Mustang model, but not when it comes to the interior of this latest iteration. Up to four passengers can find comfort in the 2018 Mustang, which now offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for a rounded-out infotainment system. The added active noise cancellation removes an often criticized aspect from Mustang models of yore, making for this latest offering to have a greater focus on the quality of the cabin space and finding comfort within it.
