The next time you jump at the sound of thunder or feel an adrenaline rush when you hear the new active valve performance exhaust on the 2019 EcoBoost-equipped Mustang, thank your prehistoric ancestors. It’s called an autonomic response, and it traces back to ancient humans who successfully learned to react quickly to loud and powerful sounds, like the roar of a lion or the crash of a tree. Over time, this fight-or-flight response to avoid danger was passed along in our DNA and hardwired into our minds and bodies. Eons later, that connection between sounds and our emotional reactions caught the attention of an 18th century music critic named Friedrich Marpurg, who was among the first in modern times to document different sounds and the emotional responses they elicit. Today, modern sound engineers tap into those very same concepts when they create sounds for everything from movies and music, to cars and cellphones - and even appliances. Our connection to sound begins in our mother’s womb long before other senses, said Steve Venezia, a veteran Los Angeles-based television production engineer. And later in life, sound is one of the most powerful senses that creates lasting memories, like a song that takes you back to a happy time in your life. Beyond the basics of sound - loud, quiet, high/low pitch, simple or complex harmonic structures - Venezia says the trick to creating emotionally compelling sound experiences is starting with an authentic base sound, then adding layers over it to intensify the emotions of that particular sound. So that familiar ta-da chime your smartphone emits isn’t by friendly accident; it’s carefully designed to be pleasant and happy, according to Marpurg’s theory. Sound DNA of a wild Mustang In Dearborn, Michigan, audio designers of another sort create sounds that tap into our desire for power and thrills. They are engineers at Ford Motor Company, designing acoustic exhaust sounds that excite the senses and deliver a note of performance. We’re probably the few engineers here who do not have to design to a number or a specification, said Hani Ayesh, Ford exhaust development engineer. Instead, we work to identify that signature sound DNA that connects drivers to the emotional expectation they have for a specific car. These automotive sound engineers rely on computational analysis to design, for example, a computer-controlled active exhaust system that opens valves - much like a saxophone or a large pipe organ - to change the sound of the car based on the mood of the driver. Strum a chord on an acoustic guitar, and you get a clean, simple sound wave - that’s your quiet Brahms’ Lullaby kind of mood, he said. Plug that guitar into an amp and crank it up to 11, and that’s your aggressive, crackling sound that really rocks your soul. We call that track mode. Performance comes in all sizes. When you step on the gas of Ayesh’s test car - a 310-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder Mustang - the throaty rumble of the exhaust makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up, just as it might on the larger-engine Mustang GT and Shelby GT350 models. Click a switch on the center console, and the sound instantly changes to match your mood - normal, louder and more aggressive sport and track settings, as well as a quiet mode, when all you want is to just keep the peace. Mustang’s new fully active performance exhaust will be available for the 2019 2.3-liter EcoBoost-powered pony car this summer.

Happy Mustang Day! On April 17, 1964, the original pony car was introduced to the world and phenomena was born. So, in honor of one of the greatest American cars that ever was and continues to be, let's take a quick spin in the latest version, the 2018 Ford Mustang that received a number of key updates this year.
Now, when I first drove the Mustang GT 350, it wasn't the VooDoo engine that stood out. Sure, it's totally rad, but it was actually the latest Shelby's ride that made the biggest impression. What was supposedly the hardest-core Mustang ever sold to the public, and it sopped up garbage pavement like it was tuned by Tempurpedic. Contrast this to the regular Ford Mustang, EcoBoost or GT, with the Performance package that was just too firm and unpleasant in daily driving.
Sure, there was a handling benefit, but with the EcoBoost at least, the car just wasn't enough of a total performance package to warrant that ride. And therefore, warrant buying the car in the first place.
Well, the GT 350's MagneRide Dampening System can now be added as a $1,695 option to the $2,495 EcoBoost Performance package for the 2018 Ford Mustang. However, the two should really be inseparable, because the fancy magnetic dampers radically transform and improve the Mustang. They are quite simply a must-buy.
With them, the 2018 Mustang is just so well-rounded, allowing you to tolerably drive to work on Monday, haul ass on a mountain road on Saturday, and make a day trip with the S.O. on Sunday without them cursing your silly sports car and it's rock-hard, teeth chattering ride. It is with this scenario in mind that pairing the EcoBoost with the Performance package actually makes sense. It's not so much a performance choice, but rather a well-rounded sport coupe with an acceptable trade-off made for fuel economy and a lower cost of entry.
Now, I would personally still get the six-speed manual, but I was pleasantly surprised by the new 10-speed automatic. It's indeed tuned to be performance-minded, especially when you slot the shifter in Sport or toggle through the various sport settings.
Specifically, I'm surprised how often the transmission can stay in 10th, even traveling on hilly terrain, without bogging, droning along at too-low RPM, and being delinquent in its power-delivery duties in the name of fuel economy. It is quite good at downshifting as needed.
Actually, I can't say it does a particularly good job of fuel economy. The engine would certainly seem to be more Boost than Eco. I managed only 24 miles per gallon despite most of my time spent in the 55-60-mph range on rural highways. There were hills to climb, sure, but I also came down them. My foot is not made of lead and I was expecting better.
As for the 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder EcoBoost engine, there's certainly no let down around town. It does feel well paired to the car, especially if you view it as a daily driver or something to take road trips in. However, a performance option it still is not. Besides its sound being Exhibit A in the case of automotive cognitive dissonance (Mustang + hot hatch engine growl), there's just not enough oomph there. While pulling out to pass on a two-lane road, I found myself flooring it yet not getting the top-end power I'd want to sufficiently blow the passee's doors off. Though it may be paired well enough in theory, a Mustang should just have more.
And really, I think Ford could offer a V6 EcoBoost between the four and V8. There's so much performance and price distance between them. I'm not sure I'd want to live with the V8's fuel bill every day, but the four-cylinder would leave me wanting for power and I'd forever feel shame for getting a Mustang with half as many cylinders as everyone knows there should be.
"I was raised to believe a Mustang should have a V8. None of that EcoBoost business," pined a Oregon-mandated gas pump attendant without realizing that he was actually talking to someone who, most would assume, had spent $42,000 for that EcoBoost business.
I don't think I'd have the same beef with an EcoBoost V6. Besides achieving what I'd assume would be a performance and fuel economy sweet spot, in terms of perception, it would be just fine. After all, the Raptor and GT have EcoBoost V6 engine. That could make me happily live with having two fewer cylinders than my mother's 1970 notchback – especially since it would almost certainly have a higher output.
So although I still have doubts about the EcoBoost part, count me as a huge fan of the 2018 Mustang with the MagneRide suspension option. Together they create a great GT car, capable of quickly, comfortably, and stylishly ushering you from A to B while still providing enough zing to get your blood pumping. And really, that's what the Mustang has been about from the very beginning.
