Ford has taken the covers off the new Mustang convertible – less than a week after revealing the facelifted 2018 coupe version.
While the photos only show a “pre-production version”, the open-top carries the same styling tweaks as the newly-revealed coupe, namely, a new front and rear-end design.
However, although it appears to be every bit the same as the hardtop on the outside, Ford engineers have yet to disclose exactly what internal structural and chassis changes have been made to the convertible compared to the coupe – and how these might have impacted the car’s performance.
The convertible will certainly get the same engines as the coupe, which Ford says deliver better performance than ever before.
As revealed by the U.S. carmaker last Tuesday, both the 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine and 5.0-litre V8 have now been recalibrated specifically for the Mustang – and both can be matched to an all-new available 10-speed automatic transmission.
The new convertible will go on sale in North America this autumn.
