Ford's facelifted Mustang has been leaked on a video which shows the car's tweaked styling

The 2018 Ford Mustang GT has been revealed on a video which shows the car's full styling, long before its expected debut later this year.

It's clear to see the car's more angular front bumper, which has a more slimline lower intake and revised air intakes for the 2018 model year. The front lights have also been tweaked over the current model, with the new car's inducators extending below the rest of the light cluster.

At the rear, the diffuser has been finished in black, but the most notable change is the addition of a small spoiler on the boot lid, and the new C-shape of the formerly straight rear light cluster details. 

No engine details are revealed in the video, but it's unlikely that the car's two-engine lineup of a 5.0-litre V8 and 2.3-litre Ecoboost unit will be changed. 

What we do know, however, is that the updated Mustang will gain the option of a 10-speed automatic gearbox, which it shares with the Chevrolet Camaro. This is likely to be exclusive to the 5.0-litre V8, though.

Ford boss Mark Fields recently revealed that the company is working on a hybrid variant for the Mustang, although this won't be until the next-generation Mustang after 2020. 

A Ford spokesman couldn't say when we'll first see the facelifted car for the European market, but the car is expected to go on sale in the UK in early 2018.


Our Verdict

Ford Mustang V8 Fastback

The Ford Mustang is available in the UK in right-hand drive for the first time, but does the rest of this American muscle car fit the UK car scene?

Well judging by how well it's sold and the current demand for it, a fair few do!

They had a more powerful petrol v8 in the wings taking it to nearer 500?
