The exterior is a breath of fresh air because whatever you see is new. The design, the curves, and the lines are all new, except for the headlamps. The hood is 2’’ closer to the ground than earlier GT350 models. American automaker Ford claims that such a low hood improves aerodynamics of the vehicle. The air ducts have become bigger, as they run the entire width of the front. With such ducts, the Shelby GT350 takes in much more air than its predecessors do. Even inside the grille, the air ducts are angled, which ensure proper distribution of air. A look at the hood reveals the prominent air vent. Therefore, this Ford Mustang focuses on using air for superior cooling and better performance of the engine.
The cabin has bucket seats that provide perfect seating for the driver and passenger. Ford spent hours of research in deciding the design and has come up with the best type of seats. In short, driving long distances in this Shelby GT350 should be comfortable. The seats will be covered in special fabric launched for the 2016 GT350 model. From the dashboard, the driver can choose from the 5 modes to maneuver ABS, suspension stiffness, and stability. Just like other Ford cars, there is advanced navigation system with touch screen.
