When shopping for an exciting ride, the 2018 Mustang Ecoboost I-4 and GT models are definitely vying for your attention. Deciding on your preference is part of the fun. This comparison should reveal similarities and differences to give you a better idea of which one is for you.

Performance

The 2018 Ford Mustang I4 turbo has pulled ahead of its V6 rivals. Its 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine has been retuned. As if it were a V6, it now cranks out 310 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque. For an even more ferocious engine, you can choose the 2018 Ford Mustang GT. Engineers have boosted its power outlay, combining the best of lower pressure port fuel injection and high pressure direct injection. The V8 generates 460 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque.

Both models come with a six-speed manual, but they can be optioned with a 10-speed automatic transmission. Ford’s smooth shifter may be the best thing ever to happen to the pony car. If you want better straight line acceleration, you can activate an electronic line-lock with the new Drag Strip mode. MagneRide, which reads the road in milliseconds, can tame the roughest pavement.

Styles and Options

Whether in Fastback or Convertible styles, there are two trims for the two engine choices. Your standard package includes push button start and an available 12-inch LCD instrument cluster. With multiple screens and 26 colors, you’ve got many ways to program your instrumentation panel. The Entune system comes with a choice of touchscreens. The Premium trim level includes a Sync 3 eight-inch color LCD capacitive touch display and two smart-charging USB ports. Drivers can command navigation with their voice and access SiriusXM Traffic and Travel for up-to-the-minute advice. For maximizing smartphone integration, nothing beats Apple CarPlay for iPhones and Android Auto for Android-based smartphones.

From a dignified tan to a racy Showstopper Red, shoppers can personalize their Mustang. The new Ebony black interior offers the softness of Alcantara suede. A Midnight Blue interior features Grabber Blue accents. At night, the start button pulses with a red glow to welcome you, and exterior LEDs create a distinctive light signature. A broad color palette invites you to choose a hue reflective of your personality.

Safety

To take care of the driver, there’s an extra kneebag. Base editions have an integrated blind spot spotter in the side mirrors. The SOS post-crash alert system is designed to call for help when you can’t. Proving its mettle, the car earned a federal five-star safety rating. For 2018, Mustang shoppers can choose a pedestrian watch, a forward collision warning, and a partner autobrake. Lane departure warnings and a blind spot monitor may assist the busy Mustang driver. To maintain a safe interval between the Mustang and other cars, a distance indicator is on the dash.
