2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 Test Drive and Review

The 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 has subtle styling updates, such as aerodynamic drag-reducing parts and a Gurney flap, and a new set of Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires designed specifically for the Shelby. That’s as good of a reason to get behind the wheel as any, which is exactly what we did.

To sample these new upgrades, Ford invited us to the M1 Concourse in Pontiac, Michigan. There, we’d get a closer look at the new parts and a few laps around the racetrack on site to experience the effects. Watch to find out more.

About the 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350:

The Shelby GT350 is a muscle car for the track-day obsessed. Yes, it shares some looks and interior parts with the standard Mustang, but the key differences are hidden from view. Under the hood is a non-turbocharged 5.2-liter V8. It revs up to 8,200 rpm, punches out 526 horsepower, and even has a flat-plane crankshaft that lends a distinctive warble to the engine’s sound. From there, the GT350 has a race-tuned adaptive suspension, high-performance brakes and all sorts of supportive powertrain upgrades that set it apart. It’ll lay down thick stripes of rubber in a straight line, naturally, but the GT350 is most at home around a complicated racetrack or a winding mountain road.

Despite its focus on performance, the GT350 is comfortable and relatively quiet (when your right foot isn’t planted on the floor), and it could easily serve as a daily driver. Well-rounded and massively entertaining, the GT350 is definitely our idea of the ultimate Mustang.

Standard equipment for the base GT350 includes a 5.2-liter V8 (526 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque), a six-speed manual transmission, 19-inch wheels, adaptive suspension dampers and heavy-duty springs, Brembo brakes, a Torsen rear differential (with 3.73 gearing), a front-suspension tower brace, three powertrain coolers (oil, differential and transmission), adjustable drive settings, xenon headlights, a rear spoiler and diffuser, and keyless ignition and entry.

Inside, you’ll find manually adjustable Recaro front seats with simulated suede inserts, a tilt-and-telescoping steering column, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, Bluetooth, a 4.2-inch center display, Track Apps performance telemetry, a rearview camera, phone and audio voice commands (Sync), smartphone app integration, and a six-speaker sound system with two USB ports.

Opting for the Electronics package equips the GT350 with dual-zone automatic climate control, an 8-inch touchscreen with Sync 3 (with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity), a navigation system, and a nine-speaker audio system with satellite radio. The Convenience package adds leather upholstery, driver-seat memory functions, six-way power-adjustable sport front seats with power lumbar for the driver, and heating and ventilation for the front seats.

  1. Would the transmission in the GT350 swap into a regular GT? If mine goes and I have to replace it, just wondering if I could put the one for the GT350 in my car (2019 GT base).

  2. You and other journalists said the same thing about the 2012 Boss 302. I am sure the Gt 350 is a great car, but the sound to me isn’t all that great. I prefer the muscle car sound of the 2012-2013 Boss 302. Can’t wait to hear what the best mustang ever you and other journalists will say in the near future!

  3. Of all the upgrades they did. Some things I don’t like as much. Why why why did they get rid of the red race inspired start button. I know it can be changed out. But why?! Makes no sense to put the one in the standard mustangs in when it’s not saving ford money

  4. i cant stress enough that if your a car collector and you dont have one of these your gonna be kickin yourselves in the rear in about 30 years, when such a car with such a sound is lost to the anolds of electrified time. No matter how fast ev's will become they will not sound like this. the will not drive like this (manual shifting) and they wont have the presence of this. it is the modern day Eleanor. save the new GT500 itself. This is a keeper. a mustang that truly is everything it was originally intended to be.

  5. That Tremec 3160 needs to be in the GT instead of that rubbish Chinese Getrag. Mine lasted 1300 miles. Now my 18 Camaro SS has the Tremec 6060 which is overbuilt for the SS and it's great and has no lift shifting. Even the Camaro V6 has the Tremec 3160 and the 4 banger Camaro has a Tremec as well…..

  6. Unfortunately, Ford has an issue with the oil filter housing, bearing caps breaking, oil pump gears failure, rod bearing failure, blown engines during track days on their GT350's.

    Which i'm sure Ford has not addressed.

  7. A fantastic Mustang. Love the looks, overall performance and that amazing Flat Crank 5.2. Thanks for the great video. I agree with you. Drive it daily and track it on the weekends. Makes me wonder what the GT500 will have to offer with the handling of the GT350 and an extra 150 + horsepower.
