For many drivers, spring is one of the most exciting times of year. After months of icy roads, dirty windshields, and salt stains, the sun is shining, the roads are clearing, and the open highway beckons. It’s also the time when even the most cautious drivers let their hair down and open up the throttle, so it’s natural that with the coming of spring many drivers start to fantasize about what it would be like to take to the road in a car that was built for speed and excitement.
For many Canadians, nothing epitomizes this feeling more than the Ford Mustang. Long a favourite among sports car aficionados, the Mustang is legendary for having launched the pony car phenomenon. Over the years, generations of young drivers hooked on the power, speed, and raw rush of adrenaline a Mustang delivers.
The sixth generation launched in 2015, and its 2018 upgrades have made the Mustang both more powerful and more accessible. Features like a new 10-speed automatic transmission option and a turbocharged 2.3-litre four cylinder engine mean that the Mustang now delivers more horsepower than its closest competitors, while also broadening the car’s appeal among audiences that aren’t just looking for raw power: the new engine offers more speed for less gas, making it an attractive option for eco-conscious drivers.
Canadians seem to be paying attention. Having received rave reviews from publications like The Toronto Star for its new features, the 2018 Mustang has seen good performance on the sales lot, topping the list of best selling sports cars for 2017 and seeing a 10% increase in sales over the previous year. Clearly, those wanting to hit the road in style are overwhelmingly choosing to do so in a new Mustang.
With all the new options that come with the 2018 model, the best place to get a new Ford Mustang is at your local Ford dealership. Dealership staff can help you find the best Mustang for you, whether you’re looking for a manual or an automatic, a coupe or a convertible, and their financing department can set you up with a payment plan that fits your budget. And if you’re shopping at Colony Ford in Brampton, you’ll have access to a wide variety of personalized options, including aesthetic and enhanced performance options that can be installed in-house.
Buying a Mustang isn’t just buying a car; it’s buying a new way of experiencing the road. Sitting behind the wheel of a 2018 Mustang means getting to feel the raw power of the growling engine, experiencing the smooth handling, and feeling the rush of an vehicle that can go from 0-60 in under four seconds. It turns the highway into a racetrack, and the daily commute into a thrilling adventure. No wonder so many drivers are doing the research and exploring their options for making 2018 the year they finally get the most out of spring with a new Mustang.
