New 2018 Mustang GT Mighty V8 Growl can be Civilized
2018 Mustang GT V8 Exhaust note can Silence the Violence!
Time is coming closer to the all-out reveal or perhaps ready to deliver the 2018 Ford Mustang. Ford is steadily building up the hype to ensure the public interest remain fresh. This time around Ford has revealed yet another industry-first feature called quite start or in Ford’s parlance it is known as “Good Neighbor Mode”. This actually allows neighbor hood friendly owners to schedule the time of day when their Mustang GT’s V8 engine will roar and when to keep it quiet to show courtesy to the sleepy neighbors. Here’s the video!
Ford has actually responded to the recent poll conducted by Ranker.com, loud engine revving ranks among the most annoying noises neighbors make, alongside other common nuisances including lawn mowers, power tools, barking dogs and band practice. So these new Quiet Exhaust mode limits sound volume of 2018 Mustang GT’s 5.0-liter V8 engine using an active valve performance exhaust system that closes valves to restrict the amount of noise made by the car, got it!
“When sounds get up into the upper-70-decibel range, that’s typically about when they start to bother people,” said Flis. “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.”
The 2018 Mustang GT is equipped with the available all-digital 12-inch instrument cluster, the exhaust mode menu appears within the pony menu. With the standard 4-inch cluster, exhaust mode is found within the settings menu.
Active valve performance exhaust is one of many changes Mustang GT fans will see when cars reach showrooms later this year. In addition to its restyled exterior design and refined interior, Mustang will offer an all-digital 12-inch instrument cluster, a 10-speed automatic transmission, MagneRide™ damping system and SYNC® Connect with FordPass™.
