2017 Ford Mustang
The most powerful car in its class.
Engine & Performance
The 2.3L EcoBoost engine delivers 310 hp* and 320 lb.-ft. of torque.* An optimally sized twin-scroll turbocharger separates the exhaust runners in two chambers that run all the way to the turbine. This transfers high-pulse energy to the turbine wheel, resulting in ultrafast time-to-torque. If all this sounds too technical, simply give 'er the gas and enjoy the quick response.
*Tested with 93-octane fuel.
From the deep, guttural rumble at idle to the wide-eyed force of torque in acceleration, this engine is all about performance. It delivers 435 horsepower* and 400 lb.-ft. of torque* - that's increased horsepower and torque vs. the fifth-generation vehicle. The engine is intended to maximize power generation from every compression, with large intake and exhaust valves, cylinder heads that feature high-flow ports and intake and exhaust camshafts that have impressive lift. And the icing on the cake - the 5.0L exhaust delivers a powerful acoustic experience.
*Tested with 93-octane fuel.
The 3.7L V6 has twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT) technology and delivers 300 hp and 280 lb.-ft. of torque. Equally impressive is its EPA-estimated rating of 18 city/27 hwy/21 combined mpg.* Ti-VCT provides precise timing and control of the engine's air and fuel intake and exhaust output. It helps enhance peak power, low-speed torque in driving situations like passing and merging, and helps optimize efficiency and cold-start operation.
*V6 auto Fastback. Actual mileage will vary.
Powertrain The heart and soul of the Shelby lives in the 5.2L V8 engine with a flat-plane crank that produces 526 horsepower and delivers 429 lb.-ft. of torque.
Chassis and Suspension
The MagneRide™ Damping System monitors and adjusts itself thousands of times per second. The GT350® was designed, engineered and built so the springs, sway bars and dampers work together as one finely tuned system. We also added lightweight chassis components and a set of Michelin® Pilot® Super Sport tires wrapped around lightweight aluminum wheels.
We teamed front and rear Brembo® calipers with cross-drilled, two-piece brake rotors. The huge 394mm (15.5") rotors up front and 380mm (14.9") rotors in the back complete this tight, hardworking system that gives GT350 its well-earned track cred.
Balancing downforce while minimizing aerodynamic drag is always a challenge. Ford performance engineers achieved it by requiring every single component to work with the others as a team, contributing to the system's overall performance.

*Ford does not recommend using summer tires when temperatures drop to approximately 45°F or below (depending on tire wear and environmental conditions) or in snow/ice conditions. If the vehicle must be driven in these conditions, Ford recommends using all-season or snow tires.
Launch control* integrates the brakes, traction control and powertrain control to help ensure smooth, consistent starts for all driving conditions. Real-time vehicle performance info is displayed through Track Apps™ on the in-dash LCD screen. This advanced system can help drivers of all skill levels to drive like the pros by providing excellent torque balance, grip and acceleration.
*For track use only.
Class-exclusive* Electronic Line-Lock**, standard on Mustang GT, is the first feature of its kind in the industry, and the perfect tool for Mustang drivers who love to test their skills at the track. Electronic Line-Lock keeps the front brakes locked while releasing the rear brakes, letting you accelerate to spin and warm up the rear tires to enhance grip. You won't have to balance one foot on the brake and the other on the gas or install a mechanical line-lock. With the tires properly warmed up, drivers can pull up to the staging line, engage launch control and catapult off the line when the lights go green.
*Class is High-Power Sports Car based on Ford segmentation.

Selectable Drive Modes
Customizable driving preferences let you dial in the handling dynamics you want. Mustang adjusts its handling and response characteristics to optimize control according to your selection. Simply choose your desired driving mode using a toggle switch on the center stack. Normal, Snow/wet, Sport, or Track.
With its sleek, sporty, aerodynamic look Mustang has an iconic style all its own. Every 2017 Mustang has standard HID headlamps and signature LED tri-bar taillamps with sequential turn signals. Dual exhaust pipes are standard on all models and air extractor hood vents are standard on GT models. And to match your own unique style, Mustang comes with a long list of options for all models, including 12 available wheel designs ranging from 17 inches to 20 inches.
The driver's seat - set in a low, sporty position - offers abundant travel for comfortable positioning. The steering column manually telescopes and tilts, helping provide a controlled feel. The shifter leaves ample clearance for the controls, while the cupholders are positioned outside of the shift path. You'll enjoy ample knee room, as well as a left-side footrest (dead pedal) set to the same angle as the accelerator.
The 2017 Mustang Convertible top is electrically driven for quick, quiet operation. It features a center latch to ease opening and closing from the driver's seat. And thanks to intelligent design, the trunk is large enough to accommodate two golf bags - even with the Shaker™ Pro subwoofer.

Independent Rear Suspension
The 2017 Ford Mustang features an integral link independent rear suspension that helps minimize body roll and isolate road imperfections for a responsive ride and precise handling. Aluminum-alloy rear knuckles and H-arms help reduce unsprung mass. So Mustang has twice as much anti-squat and nearly 10 times the amount of anti-lift for better pitch control during hard acceleration and braking compared with the previous generation.
The double ball joint front suspension provides high-performance driving dynamics, allowing for larger brakes than the previous generation without excessive wheel offsets that would affect steering feel.
Cross-traffic alert comes with BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System).
Selectable Power-Assisted Steering (EPAS)
Select from three power-assist settings: Normal - Provides a balance between Comfort and Sport settings Sport - Requires increased steering effort, delivering more connection to the road Comfort - Involves the least steering effort

The good kind of rush hour.
MagneRide™ Damping System
Using fewer components than a traditional damping system, the GT350® MagneRide™ Damping System shields you from rough road surfaces while also reducing body roll and improving road feel. When motion sensors detect a bump, pothole or obstacle, magnetic energy is automatically adjusted to provide optimal damping for both comfort and control. It all happens faster than the blink of an eye.
Track Apps.™ Smoke 'em if you got 'em.
WStandard on all models, performance metrics are instantly provided on the 4.2-inch message center in the instrument cluster. Accelerometer displays lateral and longitudinal g-forces, acceleration times plus automatic and countdown starts.
Track Apps features Electronic Line-Lock* (GT and GT350 models only) and Launch Control (GT manual and GT350 only). Electronic Line-Lock keeps front brakes locked while Mustang is in gear to warm up the rear tires. Launch control integrates brakes, traction control and powertrain control to help ensure smooth, consistent starts.
*The Electronic Line-Lock feature should be used only at the track.
Intelligent Access with Push-Button Start
Getting into and starting your Mustang is incredibly simple, thanks to standard Intelligent Access with push-button start. With the key fob in your pocket or bag, unlock the driver's door with a touch of the handle. Once inside, press the brake pedal (the clutch with manual transmission), then start the engine with the push of a button.
BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert
The available BLIS® with cross-traffic alert 10 helps make driving more convenient. It uses radar to identify if a vehicle is detected in your blind spot and alerts you with an indicator light in the appropriate exterior mirror. Cross-traffic alert also uses radar to watch for traffic behind you as you're slowly backing out of a parking spot or driveway. If cross-traffic sensors detect a vehicle approaching from up to 15 yards away, you will be audibly and visually alerted.
Adaptive Cruise Control and Rain-Sensing Wipers
Available adaptive cruise control 10 functions similarly to traditional cruise control—with one important difference. When the sensors detect traffic slowing ahead, your vehicle also slows down based on your pre-set distance. And when traffic has cleared, your vehicle resumes the set speed.
Collision Warning with Brake Support alerts you if it senses a potential collision with the car in front of you. A heads-up display, which simulates brake lights, flashes on the windshield and provides an audible warning. If you don't react in time, the brakes will precharge and increase brake-assist sensitivity to provide full responsiveness when you do brake. Rain-sensing wipers turn on automatically when rain or snow is detected on the windshield.*
