The Ford Mustang Shelby is a classic car with luscious curves and a loud roar. This muscle car has been reintroduced for 2019 and the features are nothing short of impressive. The engine has more growl, the body is more aerodynamic, and the tech is updated for a more focused ride.
1. Engine Upgrades
The 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 has a growl that makes you fear its bite. The most powerful naturally aspirated road-going engine in Ford history sits in the newest Shelby and you’ll know it when you start it up. The 5.2-liter TI-VCT V-8 engine has a flat-plane crankshaft and a Tremec six-speed manual transmission. This combination creates 526 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque. At redline, it produces 8,250 rpm, making the GT350 the highest revving production V-8 ever created by Ford.
The MagneRide Damping System features recalibrated springs and revised damping to accommodate the higher thresholds, along with automatic self-monitoring 1,000 times every second. Add the dual exhaust electronic valves and quad tips and you have a personalized engine output for your preferences.
2. Aerodynamic Body Mods
Ford has adjusted parts of the 2019 Mustang Shelby GT350 without compromising the classic body style that is famous for the model. The new spoiler reduces drag from air currents while the available Gurney flap adds downforce similar to airplanes. They even the optimized the grille closeout in front so the air moves over and around while you’re speeding down the road. The custom Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires feature a redesigned tread and compound to allow for better traction, improved linear and lateral acceleration times, as well as shorter braking, thanks to the revised antilock brake tuning.
3. Redesigned Interior with Tech Upgrades
The interior of this classic beauty has also been upgraded for the 2019 model. It comes standard with RECARO cloth seats and Dark Slate Miko inserts. The shift knob is race-inspired as well as the flat-bottom steering wheel which comes wrapped in leather and Alcantara and a Cobra logo. There are no rear seats, keeping this model in race-ready form. A new shift indicator light displays on the windshield to keep your eyes on the road for your entire drive. Interior accents are a Shelby-exclusive aluminum applique.
The 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 has updated technology as well. A rear view camera and dual-control conditioning, and Ford’s SYNC 3 infotainment system are all standard and help with situational awareness and comfort. The optional technology package includes a Bang & Olufsen 12-speaker sound system with HD radio technology, Blind Spot Information System with cross-traffic alert, heated exterior mirrors Cobra LED-projector puddle lamps, and a voice-activated navigation system with Sirius XM Traffic and Travel Link.
