2018 Ford Mustang GT Performance Package Level 2 first drive: making it a real sports car

The Ford Mustang was born a pony car, but it’s worked tirelessly for most of the last decade to move past its roots. To become a true sports car.

Check It Out. Check out the details.

The reintroduction of the Boss 302 in 2012 came close, but only in 2015 did Ford finally ditch the Mustang’s solid rear axle for modern technology and an independent rear suspension.

Despite its new rear end, the Mustang hasn’t been able to shake off all its past. It’s larger than ever, and when the road buckles, the Mustang bobs and weaves more than a sports car should.

In theory, Performance Package 1 should fix the Mustang’s dynamic issues, but it doesn’t. The new Performance Package Level 2 does.
