With an athletic look and a throaty growl from dual exhausts, the Ford Mustang can  to be fun to look at and drive around Cerritos, Long Beach, and Anaheim. But will it be exciting for you?

To help answer that, we here at Norm Reeves Ford Superstore Cerritos wrote this 2018 Ford Mustang review. We'll go over the unique elements of this car so that you can decide if you want to experience it for yourself.

A Highly Powerful Performance

There are several available options to get your daily dose of adrenaline in the 2018 Mustang. It comes standard with a 2.3L EcoBoost® I-4 that delivers 310 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. There's also the available 5.0L Ti-VCT V8 that produces a robust 460 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. But when you want the feeling of zooming down a race track, there's the available 5.3L Flat Plane Crank V8 that delivers a powerful 526 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque.

For someone who wants a smooth performance and lots of control, there's the optional 10-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission with paddle shifters. This feature provides a quicker and more accurate upshift and downshift capability.

Plus, you can take on any road with the Selectable Drive Modes. Choose from Normal, Snow/Wet, Sport, Track, or Drag mode to customize your driving experience. Simply flip a toggle switch on the center stack of the Mustang, and handling and response times are adjusted based on your selection.

A Standout Design

Although the 2018 Ford Mustang has elements from its classic versions (like the horse on the grille), it's actually quite modern looking.

It has a fastback silhouette, a lowered front hood, and a fascia frame with LED lighting. The cloth convertible top can be easily opened or closed from the driver's seat, thanks to its center latch. Plus, the design cues flow into the body lines all the way to the back, where the muscular haunch is sure to make everyone's head turn when it passes by.

Additionally, there are many wheels to choose from for the Mustang, depending on which package you get. For example, with the Wheel & Stripe Package, you get 19-inch machined-face aluminum wheels with dark, stainless-painted pockets. And with the GT Performance Package, you get 19-inch Ebony Black-painted aluminum wheels. With so many wheel options, plus 11 body colors to choose from, like Kona Blue and Royal Crimson, the possibilities for getting your perfect-looking car are nearly endless.

A Smart Sports Car

The Ford Mustang has always been about its vigorous performance, but it also has advanced technology features to make every drive that much more enjoyable.

With the available 12-inch LCD digital instrument cluster with MyColor®, you're in control of everything you see behind the steering wheel, like fuel, lap time around a track, and even suspension and steering preferences. And once you set your favorite driving options, the MyMode system will remember them next time you get behind the wheel.

To stay connected on every drive, there's the available SYNC® 3 system. This  feature uses both a capacitive touchscreen and voice-activated technology to listen to music or locate a place of interest via the available navigation.

You can also connect a compatible smartphone to the vehicle using Apple CarPlay™ or Android Auto™ to access all your favorite apps. And for even more listening options, there's the available 6-month trial subscription to SiriusXM® Satellite Radio. This includes over 150 channels of commercial-free music, plus sports, news, and talk radio. In addition, a 5-year subscription to SiriusXM Traffic™ and Travel Link® is included in the available navigation system.

Take the 2018 Ford Mustang Out for a Spin

The Ford Mustang may be a powerful, bold, and smart vehicle, but to help determine if it's meant for you, you'll need to get behind the wheel.
