Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 thunders in with upgraded aero, tires, brakes

The powertrain is also unchanged for 2019, meaning the GT350 continues with the 392kW/582Nm 5.2-litre naturally-aspirated V8, mated exclusively to a Tremec six-speed manual transmission.

Sticking with the performance theme, the GT350's suspension has has recalibrated springs and modified dampers.

Ford introduced its racetrack-tested 2019 Mustang Shelby GT350 at an appropriate spot in the M1 Concourse racetrack in Pontiac on Monday, June 11 in front of members of the media.

Ford says it worked "exclusively" with Micheline to develop the car's tires that will even come with a "Shelby GT350-specific tread pattern" that the automaker claims will improve acceleration, lateral acceleration and braking. Also, the settings for the electric power-assist three-mode electronic stability control have been changed. "It's confidence inspiring in corners and begs to be pushed harder and to take corners faster".

What's New: For the new model year, Ford Performance chose to focus on improving the GT350's handling characteristics, improving aerodynamics, suspension, brakes, and tires. As usual the 2019 GT350 will act as the flawless balance between the regular Mustang and the track-bred GT350R, but Ford consulted with Billy Johnson, FIA World Endurance driver for Ford GT, to help the GT350 achieve better performance on the circuit. Power-adjustable seats with synthetic suede inserts are available at extra cost, to go with the dark gray, contrast-stitched synthetic suede door panels. The auto comes equipped with Recaro race seats with spots for safety harnesses, but customers can now opt for power-adjusting seats with Miko suede inserts. The vehicle also comes with additional standard equipment including a dual-zone automatic climate control system, a universal garage door opener and an 8-inch SYNC 3 infotainment system.

New colors for the 2019 Mustang Shelby GT350 include Velocity Blue and Ford Performance Blue. Buyers can also opt for factory-painted racing stripes in high-gloss Shadow Black, Oxford White or Kona Blue.

While the Motor Company rolled out the 2019 Mustang Shelby GT350 today, there was no word on the GT350R. What they can not opt for, though, is the same aesthetic or functional updates Ford made to the standard Mustang for this year.

The 2019 Mustang Shelby GT350 arrives in early 2019. No word on pricing just yet.
