The settings of the MagneRide dampers are also changed to increase the weight transfer to the rear axle which provides greater traction for the car and allows the quick time to reach sixty mph. There’s no doubt this will make the Ford Mustang even more fun to drive.
Even the EcoBoost models receive some upgrades. The Drag Strip mode is added to this car to increase torque from 320 to 350 lb.-ft. even though the horsepower output stays the same at 310 ponies. This version of the Ford Mustang can be equipped with a ten-speed automatic transmission and the Performance Package to allow this version of the car to reach sixty mph in less than 5.0 seconds to make sure this car can have exactly what you want when you’re looking for the performance version of this car that can be right for you on the track.
