2018 Ford Mustang GT Fastback automatic review


Further, for mine this is the model you want. You want the V8, obviously. It doesn’t matter how good the Ecoboost is, everyone wants a V8. And you want the auto, because while shifting gears yourself is a uniquely enjoyable interaction between driver and vehicle, a lazy, powerful big V8 has always responded so well to an auto ’box. The Mustang always has too, and the 10-speed promises to be an interesting addition to a not so technical segment.

I don’t dislike the manual by any means, but if cool cruising is your aim, it’s the auto that best suits that brief. Especially if you’re lucky enough to contend with Sydney/Melbourne/Brisbane traffic. Readers in South Australia, Western Australia and Tasmania, stop sniggering, your time will come.
