New Brochure Reveals More Options For 2018 Mustang
Fancy red and blue interiors?by Ciprian Florea, on
The facelifted 2018 Ford Mustang was revealed at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show but, despite the four months that passed as of May, Ford has yet to release the full specs. Arguably the most import data we’re missing are the outputs of the four-cylinder and V-8 engines, but putting together a final configuration is tough with the spec sheet still a mystery. But, there is some good news for potential customers, as the folks over at the Mustang6G forums managed to obtain a brochure that includes a few interesting details.
On top of confirming that there will be 12 exterior colors, the brochure also unveils the five interior colors, including a couple of rather exotic offerings. Ford also changes a few things in the options department, renaming the 401A package the Premium Plus. The Mustang continues to come with a Performance Package, as well as the Shaker Pro audio system.

New Color Options Inside and Out
For the 2018 model year, the Mustang comes with two new exterior color options. There’s the very dark red called Royal Crimson and the flashy Orange Fury. In order to make way for these new colors in the palette, Ford removed Platinum White and Grabber Blue. Needless to say, while I won’t miss the white, Grabber Blue was a nice option to have.
But, there’s bigger news inside the cabin. While the Ebony (black) and Ceramic (grey) interiors were carried over, Ford is finally offering livelier upholstery colors. You’ll now be able to choose between Tan and Showstopper Red, the latter almost matching the Ruby Red exterior. There’s also Midnight Blue, and even though the brochure misses a sample, it’s probably a darker shade of blue similar to the Kona Blue exterior.
The Brochure also reveals that the fleet cars will get an exclusive engine block heater. Unfortunately, final output figures are still a mystery.
