The 2018 model year has been a monumental one for Ford for many, many reasons, from the debut of the 2018 Ford EcoSport to the debut of the 2018 Ford F-150 Diesel and beyond. The 2018 model year is also an important one for Ford because it’s the 50th anniversary of the 1968 model year, which had some of the most impressive Ford cars, trucks and SUVs ever assembled. One of those models was the 1968 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet, which is getting a 50th anniversary model in the form of the 2018 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet. But what’s under the hood of the all-new Ford Mustang Cobra Jet? That’s what we’re going to find out here as we take a look at the powertrain features for the 2018 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet.
