2018 thoughts

Though I bough a 2012 standard GT and happy with it I'm pondering an 18 because of Bluetooth, Sirrus, etc.
Saw some photos and wondering if the 10 speed automatic will be sorted out at first ? Also, the wing spoiler is not something I'm crazy about. I think an integrated one looks better.
I hope performance is at least on par with the Camaro.

I believe they sell aftermarket radios with blue tooth and serius. I'm unsure if ford sync has gotten better but my 14 has sync and it has a lot of issues where it goes in and out.

The 10 speed has been used in some of the trucks so I would think any bugs would have been sorted out by now but there is always the chance with a first year redesign.

There will soon be road tests of the 2018 Mustang in all of the enthusiast magazines, and I'm more than sure they will weigh in on the new 10 speed. I would think that the programming of a 10 speed would be more challenging than the 6 speed -- but I also know that those who programmed the old 6 speed got it exactly right. I love this transmission on a curvy road when in the sport setting. It just ALWAYS seems to be in the right gear for the corner exit and the next short straight.
I presume those who programmed ours also did the 10 speed, and they would not have let the new trans out on the road until they thought it was also perfect.

The top Camaro will have around a 200 hp advantage !!
