Turning your key and hearing your engine roar is one of the best parts of owning a 2018 Ford Mustang GT. However, while you love it, the engine roar of your new Ford Mustang GT can also be the bane of your neighbor’s existence. With that in mind, Ford engineers have come up with a solution that allows you to enjoy your engine’s roar when the time is right while keeping things quite when it’s time to respect your neighbors. More specifically, they’ve created a new quiet exhaust feature for the 2018 Ford Mustang GT, which you can learn all about right here.

Known as “Good Neighbor Mode,” properly equipped 2018 Ford Mustang GT models can now be programmed to keep engine noise to a minimum when it’s called for. Owners of a new Ford Mustang GT can also program quiet start-up times in advance to ensure they’ll never anger their neighbors or family members with a loud engine roar at times when things should be kept quiet. This is all thanks to the new Quiet Exhaust feature and the industry-first Quiet Start feature, both of which are part of the available active valve performance exhaust system for the 2018 Ford Mustang lineup.
“Active valve performance exhaust gives Mustang owners the best of both worlds – that classic Mustang sound, and the ability to not wake up your neighbors when you leave the house early in the morning or arrive home late at night. When sounds get up into the upper-70-decibel range, that’s typically about when they start to bother people. With quiet start activated, the decibel level of the new Mustang GT drops by about 10 decibels, to a much more comfortable 72 decibels – about the level of a household dishwasher.” – Matt Flis, Ford Exhaust Development Engineer.
