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.
