The extra-quick version of the Ford Mustang is in for some upgrades for the 2017 model year. Although there are no changes to the 500-plus horsepower engine, the $6,500 Track Package (consisting of special coolers for the transmission, engine oil and differential, a rear spoiler, aluminum shock tower brace and constantly adjusting shock absorbers) will henceforth be standard. A new Electronics package includes a nine-speaker audio system (up from the current seven-speaker unit), while a Convenience Package replaces the manually adjustable Recaro-brand front seats with power-adjustable leather-covered buckets. Although there’s no official word on pricing, The Sleuth expects that the GT350’s $50,000 base tariff will increase by no more than $5,000 when it goes on sale this summer.

Changes to the Shelby GT350 are already on the way:
