  Limited Ford Ranger Black Edition pick-up truck revealed Ford has revealed a new special edition pick-up truck – a Black Edition Ranger, which will be on show at the Frankfurt Motor Show later this month. In the cabin, the Black Edition trucks benefit from a Ford SYNC 3 multimedia and infotainment system, fronted by an eight-inch touchscreen display. Satellite navigation is included, while dual-zone climate control, leather seats and interior upholstery, and power-folding, heated door mirrors are also added.

While Ford still hasn’t divulged any mechanical details relating to the refreshed, 2018 Ford Mustang , we do at least know now what the facelifted pony car will look like, thanks to a leaked video containing driving shots of the new(ish) Mustang GT in action.

The 2018 Ford Mustang is expected to get a new front end and a 10-speed automatic transmission as part of its mid-cycle refresh. Rumor has it that Ford will also introduce a Mach 1 edition around the same time as the facelift . Expect the next-generation Mustang to be introduced in 2019 or 2020.

The Ford Mustang is to benefit from a wide-reaching round of enhancements for the 2018 model year.

The most significant additions concern the 5.0-litre V8-equipped GT model.

The 5.0-litre Mustang GT gets more power from 2018, rising from 412bhp to an “anticipated” 444bhp.

New Ford Ecosport launched with European focus

  New Ford Ecosport launched with European focus Latest variant of poorly received SUV has been upgraded to tackle the European marketThe updated crossover gets a new 1.5-litre diesel engine and comes with an ST-Line option. It also gets new chassis settings to improve handling.

Photos credit Ford . Yes, the face of the 2018 Ford Mustang looks awfully sad. Is it sad because it no longer comes with a V6 engine option? The facelifted 2018 Ford Mustang has been revealed, and, um?

Do you prefer the look of the new 2018 Mustang , or the design that was used from 2015-2017? Today we got our first official look at the refreshed 2018 Ford Mustang . While there’s lots to digest – no more V6 engine, MagneRide dampers

The 2.3-litre EcoBoost model, meanwhile, actually gets slightly less power, down from 313bhp to 286bhp in the name of improved emissions, but Ford says it should offer “the same performance level” as before, and be slightly faster when fitted with an automatic gearbox.

Both cars are to be offered with a 12-inch digital dashboard in lieu of traditional dials, while a new 10-speed automatic gearbox replaces the six-speed. A six-speed manual will continue to be offered with both cars, but in the GT this has been beefed up to cope with the extra power.

Also new for the 2018 Mustang is the active exhaust, which can be made quieter or more vocal as you see fit.

Adjustable dampers for the suspension have been added to the Mustang’s options list and two new driving modes feature.

Ford has revealed the mid-cycle action (MCA) makeover for its sixth-generation Mustang , and the facelifted S550 makes its debut as a 2018 MY model, kitted out with a host of new items and design changes.

Joining Normal, Sport, Track and Snow/Wet modes, the new Drag Strip setting “optimises performance for maximum acceleration”, while My Mode allows you to configure the Mustang’s adjustable systems individually.

Inside, the 2018 Mustang benefits from new soft-touch materials on the top of the dashboard and the inside of the doors while a new Carbon Sport option pack is added to the options list, bringing with it Alcantara suede fabric door and seat inserts and a carbon-fibre surround for the instruments and gearlever.

For 2018, the 2.3-litre EcoBoost Mustang joins the GT model in being fitted as standard with Line Lock, a feature that, when activated, applies the front brakes but not the rears.

Ford says Line Lock enables drivers to “warm the tyres when stationary”, although the wheelspin and smoke that tends to result as a side-effect of deploying line lock may hold more appeal for some.

A new boot spoiler is also offered, as is a heated steering wheel. Extra safety kit includes autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assistance.

Other improvements include tweaked suspension, a reprofiled rear bumper, LED rear lights and LED foglights, as well as new alloy-wheel designs and paint colours.

2018 Ford Mustang price and on-sale date

Ford will begin customer deliveries for the updated Mustang in 2018. We expect a modest price rise over the current model, which starts at around £34,000.
