2018 Ford Mustang GT Atlanta GA

We routinely have over 100 new Ford Mustang models to choose from here at Akins Ford near Atlanta, GA, which should tell you all you need to know about how we feel about the best-selling sports coupe on the planet. But as much as we love the base 2018 Ford Mustang models, we’ll always have a special place in our heart dedicated to the 2018 Ford Mustang GT. That’s because the new Ford Mustang GT takes everything you love about the 2018 Mustang lineup and cranks it up a couple notches. And then it cranks it up some more.

There are three new Ford Mustang GT models to choose from – the 2018 Ford Mustang GT Fastback, the 2018 Ford Mustang GT Premium Fastback, and the 2018 Ford Mustang GT Convertible. Outside of the standard safety, technology, comfort and convenience features that come with each model, the differences between the three are pretty marginal. The 2018 Mustang GT Convertible is the taller of the three models, though not by much. The 2018 Mustang GT Fastback models offer slightly more total passenger and cargo space, though, again, it’s not by much. So, it really comes down to whether you want a convertible or a fastback, which is a decision that will be made more on personal preference than anything else.
