Ford Mustang

First-Look-Mustang-2018

A host of improvements including new technology and design changes give owners way to customize the most advanced Mustang ever to their preferences, even better performance from more powerful engines and new MagneRide suspension technology. Owners have more ways than ever to personalize Mustang to make it their own, with three new paint colors, 12 distinct wheel choices, and a customizable digital instrument cluster.

  • Sleeker design: New Mustang features a more athletic look, with new front and rear-end design that deliver a leaner and meaner look and refined aerodynamics
  • More advanced technology: New Mustang technologies include a 12-inch all-digital instrument cluster that you can customize your way, MyMode with memory function that remembers your driving preferences for the next time you drive, and new driver-assist features such as Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection for increased confidence behind the wheel
  • Improved Performance: Powerful engine upgrades, plus an all-new available 10-speed automatic transmission give Mustang even more performance, while available MagneRide suspension offers optimum handling; optional active valve exhaust affords complete auditory control - let the engine roar, or not

Ford's legendary 5.0-liter V8 engine has been thoroughly reworked. It is more powerful and revs higher than any Mustang GT before. This power increase was achieved with the first application for Mustang of Ford's new dual-fuel, high-pressure direct injection and low-pressure port fuel injection on a V8 engine - delivering robust low-end torque, high-rpm power, and improved fuel efficiency.

A new 10-speed automatic transmission, available with both EcoBoost and V8 engines, is the best automatic Mustang has ever offered. With a wide-ratio span and optimized gear spacing, this all-new gearbox helps deliver higher average power for acceleration - improving responsiveness and performance.

Ford Expedition

First-Look-Expedition-2018

For today's active families, Ford's 2018 Expedition is the smartest, most capable and most adaptable Expedition ever - with technology to keep every passenger connected, more power for drivers, and more expected towing capability than any other full-size SUV.

The all-new Expedition provides families generous space, connectivity and smart new technology for their next adventures.

Flexible seating and storage solutions include second-row tip-and-slide seating that provides easy access to the third row even when child seats are installed; new, more powerful 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine and class-exclusive 10-speed automatic transmission are expected to deliver the best towing capability of any full-size SUV.

In addition, Expedition offers available new connectivity technologies and convenience features, including:

  • Wireless charging; Expedition is Ford's first vehicle to feature this system, which allows customers to place compatible mobile devices on an integrated charging pad conveniently located in the front center console
  • Wi-Fi hotspot supports as many as 10 devices at once, up to 50 feet away from the vehicle
  • Dual-headrest rear seat entertainment system provides a next-generation video experience that allows passengers to view their home cable programming on either of two video screens or hand-held devices
  • SYNC 3, with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability, allows drivers to stay connected on the move
  • SYNC Connect lets owners connect with the vehicle remotely using FordPass to start, lock, unlock and locate their vehicle from anywhere, while also allowing access to important vehicle diagnostic information
  • Power for passengers in every row, with four 12-volt power points, six USB chargers and a 110-volt power outlet that lets passengers stay charged and connected
  • 12-speaker B&O PLAY premium audio system perfected by acoustic engineers for a sound experience even audiophiles will appreciate
  • Advanced cargo manager with an adjustable shelf behind the third row lets owners create a storage space customized to whatever they're hauling; even when parked on a hill, cargo won't roll out the back of Expedition when the liftgate is opened
  • Panoramic Vista Roof spans two rows, a feature not offered by any competitor
