The new 2018 Ford Thunderbird is a new try of Ford to make high luxury brands, but this time with so many new details, so many improvements, that there is no place for mistake. The reason for this step is a low selling season of the previous model, made in 2002, when the market, highly interested for SUVs and trucks at this time, simply has not been interested in luxury cars at all. Ford, on the other hand, has not always been popular with luxury brands, so that model simply has been condemned to failure. This time they have made an effort to put everything which is needed to make this car the best in class.
The best thing on 2018 Ford Thunderbird is surely its design. An interesting front grille, made of small squares is something which is not usually seen on streets. On the sides of it are rounded lights, on the flat hood over the front grille. Below them are two small fog lights, also rounded. As the hood is extended, the truck is also longer than on modern cars, with a flat truck door over it. There are two traditional rear lights and old like spoiler over the rear bumper. If you like old Cadillac, this will reminds you of that car that is for sure. As the cheery on the top of the cake is a removable roof, so the car becomes much more interesting for younger buyers.
We are not sure in the design of the cabin in 2018 Ford Thunderbird, as well as we know that the materials are the most expensive and elegant in the class. Some fans say that it will be like in Lincoln, while the equipment is not known yet. However, the cabin is comfortable and roomy for adult passengers, with a removable roof.
The base model of 2018 Ford Thunderbird has 2 or 2.3-liter EcoBoost petrol engine paired with the nine-speed automatic transmission. It is capable of producing 250 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. Higher range should have 3-liter engine with possible 300 horsepower. Every of them will be offered as front and all-wheel driving ones, so every could choose what it wants. However, some fans are not satisfied with the strength of the engine, claiming that there are much better and stronger options on the market in same class.
