Ford recently confirmed the return of the high performance pony car for 2019, even as it gets ready for the introduction of a GT500 model for early next year. The GT350 hasn’t received the eye catching updates that were announced with the rest of the 2018 Mustang lineup. There had been a question mark over its future production of other Mustangs.
In addition to its stunning looks, the GT350 is continuing with its unique 526 hp 5.2-liter V8. However it will be getting a few upgrades to improve its overall performance.
These upgrades include a new set of Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires specifically designed for the car and a recalibrated Magne Ride computer-controlled suspension system. The rear wing has also gone through the redesign board, and will be offered with a Gurney flap for increased downforce, while the grille opening was made smaller to reduce drag. All of the changes are put into place for increasing its handling capabilities, and the steering and stability control have been adjusted to keep pace with them.
Ford hasn’t announced pricing yet for 2019 GT350, which goes on sale early next year. However, the current version starts at $58,235. The GT500 is expected to arrive at around that same time as a 2020 model with an engine that will produce over 700 HP.Categories: Blog
