2017 Shelby GT350 To Offer ‘Track Pack’ Goodies As Standard

A few noteworthy changes are occurring for the 2017 model year Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang, it would seem, as some official-looking documentation leaked on the forums at Mustang6g.com show that the once-optional “Track Pack” is set to be dissolved, with all of its components instead becoming standard on even the base model.

In other words, as of the 2017 model year, no Shelby GT350 can be configured without the MagneRide suspension, aluminum strut tower brace, transmission/differential coolers, and raised decklid spoiler. Two paint hues – Competition Orange, and Deep Impact Blue – are to be taken off the RPO list, and replaced with three new shades: Lightning Blue, Grabber Blue, and Ruby Red Metallic with Tinted Clearcoat.

Moreover, the 2017 Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang will replace the existing “Technology Package” with two alternatives: a “Convenience Package,” and a lesser “Electronics Package.” Both feature 9-speaker audio, dual-zone climate control, SYNC 3 infotainment with voice-activated navigation, and more. The higher-tier Convenience Package also incorporates things like leather-trimmed seats with Miko® suede inserts, with heating/cooling and 6-way power adjustability built into the front pair.

It’s unknown whether these changes to the Shelby GT350 Mustang will nudge the base price upward, but that seems likely. Check back for more as we get it.

  1. Sounds good…very good, as this car has so much character. Though I’m personally not liking the raised rear spoiler (would prefer a choice there). Otherwise nothing to complain about!
