Ford Mustang Owns the Road Globally for the Third Straight Year

Indeed, it's the best-selling sports coupe in the world, with more than 30% of its sales being non-domestic, according to a recent evaluation of 95 percent of new vehicle sales in more than 80 countries worldwide made by industry analysis authority IHS Markit. By the numbers, that's a whopping 125,809 Ford coupes and convertibles sold across 146 countries in 2017 alone -- quite the indicator. The most popular Ford sports car model, you ask? None other than the exciting Mustang GT, sporting the hallmark 5.0-liter V8, and if the new 2018 Mustang gives us anything, it's a good gauge of why.

For one, the new 2018 Mustang GT showcases what's made Ford both iconic and the choice among muscle-car enthusiasts since the 1960s: its adrenalized thrill ride. The latest model showcases a revamped Ti-VCT engine, capable of shelling out a stallion's 460 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of high-performance torque. The fun behind the run? An agile independent rear suspension, complete with aluminum-alloy rear knuckles and H-arms for that mass reduction speed demons crave. Of course, that's not to mention a short-throw six-speed manual transmission, offering an aggressive first-gear launch control that makes peeling out a matter of course, or electric power-assisted steering, offering Comfort, Sport, and Normal modes to tailor the beast.

Secondly, the new Mustang GT is just as safe a pleasure cruise, let along one comfortable and well-equipped with some of the most advanced technologies of the day. AdvanceTrac® with Electronic Stability Control helps keep things on an even keel, while, in-cabin, that's achieved by accommodating six-way power-adjustable driver's seating with power lumbar control. Factor in a choice of SYNC® or SYNC® 3 infotainment, the latter with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support for smartphone extension to the dash, optional voice-activated navigation, two smart-charging USB ports for media players, and more, and the road trip takes off.

Needless to say, our Henderson, TX Ford dealer was stoked to see the news, and we're looking forward to our baby heading to NASCAR in 2019 (yes, you heard right).
