2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R Unveiled With GT500 Mechanical Upgrades

Ford has just announced a series of revisions for the 2020 Mustang Shelby GT350R, inspired by its more powerful sibling, the new GT500.

Changes include the redesigned front suspension geometry, which features new high-trail steering knuckle, like in the latest GT500. Additionally, drivers will be encouraged to attack corners faster than before thanks to the new steering rack and recalibrated power steering control.

“It’s always been our plan to take the latest innovations from the GT500 program and strategically apply them across the Mustang lineup”, explained chief program engineer at Ford Performance, Ed Krenz. “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.”

Elsewhere, the 2020 Mustang Shelby GT350R carries over the previous updates in aerodynamics and chassis, while featuring standard carbon fiber wheels, large front splitter and rear wing. Contributing to further weight savings are the removed rear seat and exhaust resonators. Other novelties include the new Grabber Lime, Twister Orange, Iconic Silver and Red Hot Metallic exterior colors.

The FordPass Connect is now standard on the 2020 Mustang. The technology allows users to interact with the car using their smartphones to see where they parked, lock or unlock the doors and check the fuel and oil levels status and maintenance alerts. You can also specify the GT350R with the optional Technology Package, with B&O premium sound system with 12 speakers, voice-activated navigation, Cobra puddle lamps and blind spot information with cross-traffic alert.
