The first Ford Mustang Mach 1 since 2004 is in the works — at least according to SpiedBilde and Automotive News.

The accomplished automotive spy photographers at SpiedBilde captured photos of a one-off Mustang, which sources say is a test mule for the 2018 Mach 1. It sports a quad exhaust setup, front splitter, and stouter front axle. According to Automotive News, “for the ’18 model year, the standard issue Mustang may get a new front fascia and a 10-speed automatic transmission. A source said Ford will offer a Mach 1 edition around the same time.

Meanwhile, Fiat Chrysler is working on a redesigned Jeep Wrangler for the 2018 model year. The SpiedBilde guys spotted a heavily camouflaged ’18 Wrangler that appears to be slightly more aerodynamic than the current version. Autoblog has more on the new Wrangler and opines that the off-roader will be more aluminum-intensive for weight savings.
