Ford Motor Co. has revealed the new 2018 Mustang Convertible and will get the 10-speed automatic gearbox. The new Mustang Convertible will go on sale along with its hard top sibling which was revealed earlier.

Ford has tweaked the new Mustang Convertible both at the front and the rear profile -- which the company claims to offer aerodynamics -- and three new colours. The new Mustang gets a digital dashboard and replaces the dials of the outgoing model.

The powertrains of the new Mustang Convertible is the same updated 2.3-litre EcoBoost four-cylinder engine and the traditional 5.0-litre V8. Both the engines can be paired with the new 10-speed automatic gearbox. It is controllable with paddle shifters as well.

Under the skin of the facelifted Mustang Convertible, Ford has upgraded the shock absorbers, claiming improvement in ride quality. The company has also fitted a new cross-axis joint and tweaked stabiliser bars.

The new Mustang Convertible shares the same new look as the coupe, featuring a new restyled front end with angled headlamps, a new grille and a lowered hood.

On the safety front, the new Mustang Convertible features Pre-Collision Assist, an active exhaust to customise the sound, and a MagneRide suspension.

The droptop of the Mustang Convertible can be lowered in about 10 seconds at speeds up to 5kmph, the mechanism remains the same as the 2017 model.

Ford has tweaked the 5.0-litre V8 to rev higher, deliver more power at high revs, and the company claims that the new Pony returns better fuel efficiency. The clutch has been tweaked as well to increase the torque.

The company has extended its Ford pass smartphone app to be compatible on the Mustang, where owners can unlock, lock, find and start their Mustang with their smartphone.
