The Next Generation of Mustang Is More Agile & Lighter Than Ever

The 2020 Mustang lineup is shaping up to be the highest performance model ever. Leading the pack is the 2020 Mustang Shelby GT350R, which borrows from some of the other models, and combines features and looks to make a wholly unique experience.

Some of the new features taken from the all-new Shelby GT500 include a freshly rebuilt front suspension geometry and high-trail steering knuckle leverage. This wasn’t simply a matter of taking parts of one and plugging it in somewhere else though. In the Shelby GT350R, the steering rack is brand-new and electric power steering control has been recalibrated.

“It’s always been our plan to take the latest innovations from the GT500 program and strategically apply them across the Mustang lineup,” said Ed Krenz, Ford Performance chief program engineer. “These latest updates to the GT350R keep its performance competitive and on the top of its game, whether that’s on the track or on the street.”

Making the Shelby GT350R as light has possible has been a goal throughout the design process. Part of this includes removing the back seat, exhaust resonators, and the inclusion of carbon fiber wheels.

Available tech features for the Shelby GT350R include a 12-speaker B&O premium sound system, Cobra Puddle Lamps, voice-activated navigation, and more.
