The 2017 Ford Mustang GT350 will come with track pack as standard.,
Posh dampers, a spoiler and new colours for updated 'Stang
Ford has announced a few upgrades for the 2017 edition Ford Mustang GT350. You know the one - flat-plane crank, 5.2-litre V8 (codenamed Voodoo, no less), 526bhp and 429lb ft of torque. Then there’s the 8,250rpm rev limit.
What you now get as standard in the new Mustang GT350 then, is the ‘Track Pack’, which adds Ford’s ‘Magneride’ adaptive dampers, an aluminium tower-to-tower brace, and additional cooling for the engine oil, transmission and differential. There’s also the extremely important addition of the ‘high-downforce’ bootlid spoiler which, though not as amazing as the GT350R’s rear deck, still looks good.
There are of course, other things. Three new colours - red, ‘lightning’ blue and the excellently named ‘grabber’ blue - and two new options packs. The first is an electronics kit which adds voice-activated sat nav and nine-speakers for the audio. The second is a ‘convenience’ pack, which replaces the standard seats with leather Recaros.
“Ford Performance is always listening to customer feedback,” explains Ford Performance’s global director, Dave Pericak. “At the end of last year we started offering a back seat option for Shelby GT350R due to customer demand. Now, we have adjusted the packages available to continue to provide more of what customers want on the Shelby GT350 Mustang.”
Prices have yet to be announced. We’ve included some pictures of the rather excellent GT350R in the gallery above too, because it’s, well, rather excellent.
