2017 Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang, GT350R Gain More Standard Equipment
Leaked document reveals Track Pack is now standard.
The Track Package has been deleted for 2017 as its contents (aluminum strut tower brace, continuously controlled MagneRide Damping System, and transmission and differential coolers) are now standard on the Shelby GT350. Those track-focused bits were already standard on the Shelby GT350R.
On the cosmetic side, the Shelby GT350R’s taller rear deck lid spoiler is now standard on the regular Shelby GT350. Lightning Blue, Grabber Blue, and Ruby Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat are new exterior paint options, while Competition Orange and Deep Impact Blue have been deleted from the palette.
A new Electronics Package is now available for the Shelby GT350. The package includes a nine-speaker audio system (AM/FM/SiriusXM/single CD) with SYNC 3 and voice-activated navigation, dual-zone electronic climate control, toggle switches, side view mirror-integrated turn signals, universal garage door opener, and more.
The new Shelby GT350R R-Electronics Package includes an audio system, rearview camera, auxiliary gauges, floor mats, and tire inflator and sealant kit.
For 2017, a new Convenience Package replaces the Technology Package. The Convenience Package includes the nine-speaker audio system with SYNC 3 and navigation, automatic dual-climate control, toggle switches, leather-trimmed sport seats with Miko sueded inserts (replaces cloth Recaro seats), heated and cooled six-way power front seats with driver’s side memory recline, four-way adjustable front head restraints, turn signals integrated in side view mirrors, and a universal garage door opener.
