The 2018 Ford Mustang Convertible Will Be The Camaro's Worst Nightmare

Reveal

Did you think Ford forgot about the 2018 Mustang Convertible?

Opinions have certainly been divided over the recent reveal of the 2018 Ford Mustang facelift, with some taking offense to its lower, more angular hood and grille giving it a frowning face. Truth be told, it was all a bit overblown: you probably wouldn’t notice the changes without a game of spot the difference. There was something missing from the announcement, though: a convertible model. Bafflingly, Ford has once again chosen to reveal its latest model away from the auto shows.

Nevertheless, here it is anyway: presenting the 2018 Ford Mustang Convertible, shown in all of two promotional shots a few days after the reveal of the coupe. It looks a lot like the 2018 Ford Mustang facelift, but without a roof. Funny, that. The roofless version shares the same polarizing style changes as its hardtop sibling, but once again it’s under its skin where you’ll find the most significant changes. Gone is the 3.7-liter V6, replaced with the 2.3-liter four-cylinder EcoBoost as the new entry-level model. Ford’s flagship 5.0-liter V8 remains, with some tweaks to make it more powerful than any previous Mustang GT.

Both engines can be accompanied with an upgraded six-speed manual or a new 10-speed automatic transmission, while going for the Performance Package will give you fancy MagnaRide damper technology to optimize the ride and handling. You’ll also get the same array of tech, such as the 12-inch digital instrument panel and a host of driver-assists including Pre-Collision Assist and Pedestrian Detection facilities. Has removing the roof improved the looks of the 2018 Ford Mustang for you?
