2017 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 Review
Ford Motors is bringing some changes to its 2017 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 model. The announcement was made in the earlier part of June, 2016. The 2016 Shelby GT350 models have been received well over the years by drivers and it should continue with this new release. However, let’s take a look at what the 2017 updates has in store for Mustang lovers and if they’re impressive enough to warrant a sale.
The 2017 Ford Mustang GT350’s exterior body consists of the long hood, short trunk, slanting back glass, and tri-bar taillights. All of the dimensions have a smooth look to them. The car design has gone through minimal changes that emphasize better aerodynamic efficiency and increased airflow. The fog lights have been replaced by cooling for the brakes. The hood has also been given a huge vent. The big change that the 2017 model brings are three new exterior colors. The Competition Orange has been replaced by Ruby Red Metallic. Grabber Blue and Lightning Blue are now offered instead of Deep Impact Blue. Plus, the new exterior striped colors make the vehicle look so much cooler!
The 2017 Ford Mustang’s inside has a blend of standard and modern-day styling. The white Ford Mustang has pleasant materials than you would typically expect to have in a similar muscle auto. Trunk space in adequate. The seats are perfectly shaped. They also come covered with a GT350 unique cloth that ensures comfort. The 2017 model also offers two new packages. The Electronics Package adds SYNC 3, nine-speaker audio system, and voice-activated navigation. Additionally the manual Recaro seats are replaced with leather-trimmed power sport seats in the Convenience Package while the rest of the things remain the same as the one’s offered through the Electronics Package.
It now features the previously optional Track Package as a standard one. This adds a tower-to-tower brace made of aluminum, engine oil, transmission and different coolers, high downforce decklid spoiler, and a MagneRide damping system. The all new standard package enhances the performance of the vehicle from inside out.
