Mustang GT Performance Pack Delivers Thrill Ride

Already one of the most fun cars to drive on the planet, the 2018 Ford Mustang GT now benefits from the addition of a performance pack that came about as the result of the engineering group’s love of driving. The Ford team in charge of Mustang enhancements worked nights and weekends to create a package of accessories that increase both performance and handling, turning the Mustang GT into a smile a minute thrill machine. “A passion to create something special is what really drove this project,” according to Mustang engineering manager Tom Barnes. “And that really showed in the off-the-clock way we went about doing our work.” Check in with the pros at Chapman Ford to see about test driving the new Ford Mustang GT.

Wheels, Tires and Shocks; Oh My!

A unique 19-inch wheel design made a notable improvement in the handling and steering response, while Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires provided extra grip on the road. New MagneRide dampers are custom tuned to the Ford Mustang GT’s overall suspension, while stiffer stabilizer bars in the front and rear provide a much more controlled driving experience with less body roll. An aerodynamics team, led by a former NASA specialist, developed a high-performance rear spoiler and front splitter to get the maximum downforce to keep the car glued to the road. Jamie Cullen, a Ford development supervisor, was the lucky guy who got to test drive all the work of the engineers. “It will just beg you to go faster,” Cullen said. “The car has lightning quick response and never gives up grip.”

Put the Roar Back in Your Drive

As the original charter member of the American Pony Car Industry, the Ford Mustang has been providing thrills and excitement for more than 50 years. The Mustang is about as affordable as sports car can come, with pricing starting at just $25,585. The latest version of the Mustang has a lower hood and a wider mouth, the better with which to eat up the competition. The Mustang comes in nine different trim packages, topped off by the Shelby GT 350. More of a dream come true than just another sports car, the GT350 is designed to be lightning fast while providing an exhilarating ride. A Sunday drive to Grandma’s was never so much fun.

EcoBoost Proves Big Things Come in Small Packages

The 2.3L EcoBoost engine in the Ford Mustang may be small, but it is fierce. Engineered to deliver 350 pound-feet of torque, this mighty motor will launch you off the line to the dismay of any who may offer  a challenge. The GT delivers a 5.0L V8 for people who need a bit more power. Both are paired with a new 10-speed automatic transmission that gets the very most out of every RPM.
