PERFORMANCE

5.0L GT

From the deep, guttural rumble at idle, to the wide-eyed force of torque in acceleration, this engine is all about performance. It delivers 435 horsepowerMustang Performance and 400 lb.-ft. of torqueMustang Performance – that’s increased horsepower and torque vs. the fifth-generation vehicle. The engine is intended to maximize power generation from every compression, with large intake and exhaust valves, cylinder heads that feature high-flow ports and intake and exhaust camshafts that have impressive lift. And the icing on the cake – the 5.0L exhaust delivers a more powerful acoustic experience.

3.7L V6

The 3.7L V6 has twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT) technology and delivers 300 hp and 280 lb.-ft. of torque. Equally impressive is its EPA-estimated rating of 19 city/28 hwy/22 combined mpg.Mustang V6 Ti-VCT provides precise timing and control of the engine’s air and fuel intake and exhaust output. It helps enhance peak power, low-speed torque in driving situations like passing and merging, and helps optimize efficiency and cold-start operation.

Electronic Line-Lock

Class-exclusiveMustang Class-exclusive Electronic Line-LockMustang Line-Lock, standard on Mustang GT, is the first feature of its kind in the industry, and the perfect tool for Mustang owners who love to test their skills at the track. Electronic Line-Lock keeps the front brakes locked while releasing the rear brakes, letting you then apply the accelerator to spin and warm up the rear tires to enhance grip. You won’t have to balance one foot on the brake and the other on the gas or install a mechanical line-lock. With the tires properly warmed up, drivers can pull up to the staging line, engage the launch control and catapult off the line when the lights go green.

Shelby GT350®

 

Powertrain

The heart and soul of this beast lives in the 5.2L V8 engine with a flat-plane crank that produces 526 horsepower. It's bolted to a world-class TREMEC® 3160 6-speed manual transmission and you have a car that delivers 429 lb.-ft. of torque.

Chassis and suspension

The MagneRide™ Damping System monitors and adjusts itself thousands of times per second for a dynamic, adrenaline-fueled driving experience. But with our obsession for detail, we just couldn’t stop there. Our attention to detail drove us all the way down to which way the springs coiled; therefore, requiring new lower control arms. This racer was designed, engineered and built so the springs, sway bars and dampers work together as one finely tuned system. We also added new lightweight chassis components and a set of Michelin® Pilot® Super Sport tires wrapped around lightweight, yet incredibly stiff, aluminum wheels. So yeah, the Shelby GT350® delivers a special rush when you get behind the wheel.

Braking

The foundation of any sports car is undoubtedly the brakes; therefore, brakes are a major part of the GT350 magic. So we teamed up front and rear Brembo® calipers with cross-drilled, two-piece, highly-engineered brake rotors. The huge 394mm (15.5”) rotors up front and 380mm (14.9”) rotors in the back complete this tight, hardworking system that gives GT350 its well-earned track cred.

Aerodynamics

Balancing downforce while minimizing aerodynamic drag is always one of the biggest challenges a team of car designers can face. But Ford did it with a unique, detailed approach that centered on making it imperative that every single component play a major part in the total overall performance of the system. It’s a very hard thing to pull off, but our team of designers and engineers wouldn’t settle for less. So it’s not just that the GT350 has wide aluminum front fenders and a unique aluminum hood. It’s also that the front and rear fascias, splitter, rockers and rear valance with integrated diffuser all work together as a team – each and every one of them.

What truly sets this Beast apart is that the Shelby GT350® isn’t just a combination of “go fast” parts – any tuner can build one of those. The GT350 is a specifically engineered machine, where the components work dynamically together as one and perform to a world-class level on all fronts, as well as meeting Ford durability standards. It’s all due to the focus of the Ford Performance Engineers to make a car that delivers thrills like this, yet still possess everyday driveability. Quite simply, the GT350 was engineered so you will say – from the race track to winding back roads, the GT350 can do it all.

2.3L EcoBoost®

2.3L EcoBoost®

The 2.3L EcoBoost engine delivers 310 hpMustang Performance and 320 lb.-ft. of torque.Mustang Performance An optimally sized twin-scroll turbocharger separates the exhaust runners in two chambers that run all the way to the turbine. This transfers high-pulse energy to the turbine wheel, resulting in ultrafast time-to-torque. If all this sounds too technical, simply give ‘er the gas and enjoy the quick response.
