2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 Updates Include New Tires, Gurney Flap

2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 Updates

The Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 has a long legacy of performance that is seemingly only improved with continued tinkering over time. 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 updates continue this trend of never settling, and the final product is one that Ford thinks should make the man himself happy—wherever he is.

“Somewhere, Carroll is smiling,” said Hermann Salenbauch, global director, Ford Performance vehicle programs. “The new Shelby GT350 is our ultimate track Mustang. We’ve stuck to Carroll Shelby’s original formula for winning championships and made our Shelby GT350 even better with the latest in race-proven aerodynamics, tire, and chassis technology.”

How exactly does the 2019 Shelby GT350 earn such lofty praise? It’s all in the attention to details. 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 updates include new Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires with an exclusive tread pattern and unique compound that improve lateral acceleration, acceleration, and braking; new 19-inch aluminum wheels that are rugged and lightweight; and an optional all-new spoiler with Gurney flap that will improve aerodynamic efficiency and increase downforce.

The new Shelby GT350 will also see improvements made to its MagneRide active suspension, electric power-assist steering, and three-mode electronic stability control. With its 5.2-liter flat-plane crankshaft V8, it will continue to be a powerful beast that delivers 526 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque.

Other updates for the Shelby GT350 include an available 12-speaker B&O PLAY audio system by HARMAN, new power-adjustable seats with Miko® suede inserts, and two new exterior hues: Velocity Blue and the oft-requested Ford Performance Blue. And that is how a legend becomes more legendary.

Ford 2020 Plans Call for New SUVs, Trucks, More Hybrids

Ford 2020 PlansFord is looking ahead to 2020 as a year of great change: it recently announced that it intends to replace as much as 75% of its lineup in the next two years, dropping the average showroom age from 5.7 years to 3.3 years. Translation: expect more new Fords, more often.

“Our passion for great vehicles is stronger than ever,” said Jim Hackett, Ford president and CEO. “This showroom transformation will thrill customers, drive profitable growth and further build toward our future of smart vehicles in a smart world.”

This new product onslaught will include the launch of exciting new hybrid vehicles. This doesn’t just include the already-announced Ford Mustang Hybrid and F-150 Hybrid, but also hybrid versions of the Escape, Explorer, and all-new Bronco.

Speaking of the Bronco, Ford also revealed that it will have a little sibling—an as-yet-unnamed small SUV for off-roading that Ford President of Global Markets Jim Farley says will help the automaker “reclaim our rightful place as the off-road vehicle leader.”

With respect to on-road performance, it was also announced that the all-new Edge ST will be joined by a high-performance Explorer ST. Ford also announced that it plans to bring 4G LTE connectivity to all vehicles in its lineup by the end of next year.

While Ford’s future is looking particularly bright, the present is no less great. Stop into Robbie Roberson Ford and check out the latest additions to Ford’s lineup, including the all-new 2018 Expedition, EcoBoost, and redesigned F-150 and Mustang.

Unforgettable Winter Destinations in Georgia

destinations in GeorgiaDon’t let the change of the season keep you from exploring your state this winter. There are dozens of amazing winter destinations in Georgia that we could recommend. Here are three of our favorites from the team at Robbie Roberson Ford.

Blood Mountain

If you’re looking to leave the warmth of Southern Georgia behind, head north to Blood Mountain. It’s a six hour drive from Robbie Roberson Ford in Waycross, but worth the day trip for a cozy night spent in a cabin. Blood Mountain is one of the highest peaks in the state, so bundle up and make the hike for an incredible view, then retreat to your warm winter cabin.

Cloudland Canyon

Make a long weekend of your North Georgia adventures and drive west from Blood Mountain to visit Cloudland Canyon. The frozen waterfalls are a breathtaking sight to see. It’s a totally different experience than visiting in the summer, making this a special winter destination that is well worth the drive.

Atlanta Botanical Gardens

When you’re ready for a Holiday-themed adventure, you won’t want to miss a trip to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. Here you’ll find one of the most incredible displays of Christmas Lights this side of the Mississippi.

Ford Ranger and Ford Bronco to Return to the U.S.

Ford Ranger and Ford Bronco

For those of you who have been missing the Ford Ranger and Ford Bronco, there’s good news. Both are returning to the U.S. in 2019, and you’ll definitely want to get behind the wheel.

The Ford Ranger, a tough pickup truck, is currently only available in select countries. The current European Ranger features aggressive and sleek styling. “Ranger is for truck buyers who want an affordable, functional, rugged and maneuverable pickup that’s Built Ford Tough,” said Joe Hinrichs, Ford America president.

The Ford Bronco features a strong and unique look that America has been waiting for. The Bronco features all the tough, aggressive looks of a Hummer without the hefty gas consumption. It has the rugged look of an SUV that you’ll love.

The arrival of both of these cars to the U.S. will give Ford a whole new, younger look. These vehicles add attitude and punch to Ford’s current lineup.

Both models are set to go into production in late 2018, so you’ll have to wait for these vehicles. But the wait will definitely be worth it once these vehicles hit the road.

Until then, you can look forward to the five new Ford SUVs that are set to be debuting for the next three years.
