How Ford is making Burnouts Easier for all 2018 Mustang Owners

Share

Beginning with the restyled 2018 Mustang, all variants will now have access to the line lock technology.

Upon selecting line lock on the instrument cluster via the toggle switches, the brake system builds up brake fluid pressure in the front brake calipers. When the driver steps on the accelerator, the rear wheel spins creating clouds of smoke.

As long as the driver is in an open space, performing burnouts can be quite entertaining, as long as you don't mind burning through hundred dollars' worth of tires. A line lock is especially useful in taking away the frantic footwork on manual transmission cars where you have three pedals to juggle.

The company said the feature, "one of many changes fans will see when the newest version of the iconic pony vehicle races into showrooms later this year", will be available with the 10-speed SelectShift automatic or six-speed manual transmission. Ford even went through the trouble to design an animation of a tire spinning for cars equipped with the optional 12-inch digital display, just in case you're not sure what that would look like.

Other enhancements to the 2018 Mustang include a new front end with LED headlights, magnetorheological shocks, upgraded sway bars and a new active exhaust system.

The Mustang also will offer new driver-assist features such as Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection.
