Ford gave its iconic Mustang Sports Coupe a makeover that generated mixed reactions upon its unveiling at events in Detroit, New York, and Los Angeles.

The 2018 Ford Mustang features a lower nose, LED lights, and a new 10-speed automatic transmission, according to marketing manager Mark Schaller. Accordingly, he said the current model was given the changes to keep the Mustang a fresh new look apart from the 2015 model.

The 2018 Ford Mustang's sheet metal is brand new from the windshield forward. It sports new fenders, a lower hood, and new vents. Another iteration is its rear bumpers, with the tri-bar taillights reshaped to resemble the chevron front signature lights, according to USA Today.

Inside the 2018 Ford Mustang, buyers have the option to have a 12-inch-wide full digital instrument cluster aiming to bring its retro-inspired cabin into the 21st century, Fox News reported. The entry level V6 engine has been dropped in favor of a two-engine lineup in a 2.3-liter turbocharged EcoBoost four-cylinder and a new 5.0-liter V8.

2018 Ford Mustang closer look

The most dramatic change to the 2018 Ford Mustang is in its headlights for being sunken and hooded. The effect gave the car a more determined if not a more pronounced fierce look. However, according to Jalopnik, the front face looks like either its sleepy or a reanimated groaning zombie from the corpse of its former model.

The 2018 Ford Mustang will have adaptive radar cruise control and a new camera-based lane keeping assist and pedestrian-detecting automatic braking system.

Back in 2016, Ford sold 105,000 Mustangs to make it the best-selling sports car ahead of the Chevrolet Camaro. However, pricing for the 2018 Ford Mustang has not been announced yet but will reportedly be sold beginning fall of 2017.
