Modern power can be hard to come by. As more and more automakers trade out robust horsepower heavy engines for fuel economy and hybrid drivetrains, true performance is hard to come by; well, unless you’re talking about the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350. There are many Ford dealership locations throughout the Albany area; however, few understand the sheer power and thrill of driving a vehicle like the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 quite as we do at DePaula Ford. Our dealers are well-versed in the subject of engine power and know what it takes to create some seriously next-level performance. Before you head down to our dealership to check out the impressiveness of the Ford Mustang for yourself, we figured we’d give you a brief rundown of what to expect from one of the most top-performing vehicles out on the road today.

At First Glance

The 2020 Ford Mustang is, even in base models, a looker on the road. If you’re looking for something that will fly under the radar, this may not be the vehicle for you. That said, if you want to stand out from the pack and contrast the number of compact SUVs and bell-shaped hybrids that crowd roadways nowadays, the 2020 Ford Mustang GT350 is certainly your vehicle of choice.

As can be expected of a vehicle of such high-level performance, the 2020 Ford Mustang GT350 is low to the ground to make for handling that sticks to the pavement as much as possible. With just two doors, there is no confusion; this isn’t a car for passenger transport. While the interior can host up to four passengers, its upgraded version, the GT350R only hosts enough room for two, making for an exclusive experience meant for only a driver and front passenger.

In many ways, the Ford Mustang sticks true to its roots. That iconic front grille is still put in the foreground, and with a wide face and angular lights, the link between the 2020 Ford Mustang against its 1964 founder is indisputable. While exterior styling has some level of importance, what drivers truly expect from a vehicle like the 2020 Ford Mustang GT350 is racetrack worthy performance.

The Tools at Your Disposal

Just like last year’s model, Ford has pulled out all of the stops for the 2020 Ford Mustang GT350. At the core of any great performance machine is a substantial engine, and the latest GT350R is a great example of this. When you take one out for a spin, you’ll be sat at the helm of a low-profile sports car that’s propelled by an unrelenting 5.2-liter Ti-VCT V8 engine that shows no hesitation in its speedy delivery of 526 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque. Even for a large SUV that’s a lot of power to deal with, and in a chassis like the 2020 Ford Mustang, this is an engine that makes Ford’s flagship sports car racetrack worthy. Tap on the gas, and you’ll be launched forward with a degree of power that you’d be hard-pressed to find elsewhere.
