The 2018 Ford Mustang will come facelifted, according to the latest reports. This model is not so long in production, but company wants to keep it as an absolute leader in segment. Unlike some previous models, this one is designed not only to meet the standard of American drivers, but also for the global market. Because of that, we can see some new design solutions such as smaller engines in offer, for example. For this refresh, we will see several changes.
