Updating old mustang suspension
We took a pass on navigation, adaptive cruise control, and other amenities, save for black leather manual Recaro sport seats (95) and the GT Performance package (95), which nets six-piston Brembo front brakes with 15.0-inch rotors (up from the base 13.9-inchers) and a shorter 3.73:1 rear axle with a Torsen limited-slip differential.The Performance package also features chassis and strut-tower braces, a firmer suspension tune, a larger radiator, and revised programming for the electrically assisted power steering and stability-control system.When new, it dashed to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds and covered the quarter-mile in 12.9 at 112 mph, making it the quickest GT we’ve tested and almost as fleet as the 526-hp GT350.A solid 156-foot stop from 70 mph and 0.94 g of lateral stick evidenced the latest Mustang’s impressive road adhesion, despite both figures trailing the 150-foot and 0.98-g returns posted by our manual Camaro SS.Due to the supersoft Pirellis and our sliding around, we burned through two—two!—sets of rear P Zeros before the Mustang could return to the strip at 40,000 miles, at which point it returned nearly identical acceleration figures as when new, only upping its quarter-mile trap speed by a tick to 113 mph.Along with standard automatic HID headlights, eight airbags, and the GT’s line-lock burnout software, the Premium setup includes an 8.0-inch touchscreen in the console, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated and cooled leather front seats, selectable driving modes (normal, sport-plus, track, and snow/wet), ambient lighting, and heated exterior mirrors with galloping-pony puddle lamps.Premium trim also adds nicer interior materials, such as a seemingly machine-turned aluminum panel across the dash, but some hard plastics are reminders of the Stang’s blue-collar roots.
While the majority of items that we offer are for the Ford Mustang, we also have a number of performance parts for the Ford Focus, Superduty, and F-150 as well.

We take that additional (and huge) step of designing packages that work well as a whole system.
But the Blue Oval’s seminal pony car has not lost all sense of tradition as it finally enters the modern age and, with it, markets outside the U. It’s still a workaday barnstormer, and the Mustang’s evolution is still shadowed, as it was in the ’60s and ’70s, by a hard-charging Chevrolet Camaro.
That it shared our long-term garage with a 2016 Camaro SS lent us perspective on what is the most forward-thinking Mustang in half a century.
