Mustang fans, rejoice: For 2019, Ford has given the GT350 a host of upgrades across the board targeting aerodynamics, chassis refinements, and a new tire compound.

Ford first introduced the GT350 as a 2016 model, touting it as the "best handling Mustang of all time. " Stiffer chassis bracing, magnetic ride control, and Brembo-sourced brakes underscored the Mustang's track-focused mission. In its quest to improve the GT350's performance chops for 2019, Ford focused on refining these key attributes, drawing on experience from its Mustang road course racing programs, as well as the upcoming Shelby GT500.

Improved aerodynamic updates are among the most visible changes, with the GT350 receiving an optimized grille closeout up front and a redesigned rear spoiler out back. That spoiler is also available with an optional "Gurney flap," a small tab affixed to its top trailing edge, providing greater aerodynamic efficiency and increased downforce at high speeds.

To take full advantage of these higher speeds, Ford worked with Michelin to redesign the tread pattern and compound of the Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. With these tires, Ford claims better grip, improved linear and lateral acceleration times, and shorter braking distances, also aided in part by revised antilock braking tuning. Underneath, Ford updated the suspension with recalibrated springs and revised damping to accommodate these higher thresholds.

When the sound of the V-8 isn't enough, the GT350 now offers a 12-speaker B&O PLAY system, controlled via Ford's SYNC 3 infotainment system. New standard features include dual-zone automatic temperature control and Homelink garage door opener.

Ford Celebrates 10 Millionth Mustang With Custom Convertible .
Ford's Mustang has been racking up the sales for over 50 years. While we're sure Ford would love to sell over a million Mustang in less than two years, just like it did back in 1965-1966, there's no denying that the Mustang has had respectable numbers throughout each of the six major redesigns/generations. Respectable enough for Ford to call it the best-selling sports car of the last 50 years anyway. Sports car to some, daily transportation to school or work for others—that's the way the Mustang has been marketed for five decades now and there's no doubt that marketing has worked.
