Bravoo … Bravoo …Bravo Mr. Ford, 2018 Ford Mustang GT reminds us the masculinity of the Green Mustang car in the film ‘Bullitt’ driven by the 60’s star Steve McQueen. 2018 Mustang should be the best of Mustang’s which was produced by Ford in last decade, and also, it is a big leap from 2017 version.
Let me talk about the crowd, the Mustang is targeted for, before talk about anything else about Mustang 2018. Mustang has been the eternal target of unblinking eyes of youth since its inception @ Ford in 1964. Undoubtedly, it has lifted up and shaped up the personalities of sporty young crowd. The boost that the Mustang gives, no other car cannot provide.
‘To be the best, you need to beat the best’ is the common phrase in the competition. The Mustang 2018 is standing up to that phrase by taking the tiny edge over both Chevy Camaro and Dodge Challenger which are giants in pony car market.
