GT350 Configurator Goes Live, Reveals Pricing
If you ask me, the most exciting Mustang that Ford has produced in a very long time is the 2016 Shelby GT350. We have heard all about the car and its flat-plane 526hp V8 engine. Ford has now sent the GT350 configurator tool live and we know where the car will start pricewise.
The GT350 starts at $47,795 before you add in options that will drive the price up. The even hotter GT350R will start at $61,295. Consider that the GT350, even in base form, is intended to dominate the Chevy Camaro Z/28, which starts at $72,305, the Mustang is a bargain.
Major options include the Track Package adding $6,500 to the price with spoiler, MagneRide dampers, and lots of cooling. You can also get the Technology Package for $7,500 if you don’t get the Track Package. The base GT350R lacks AC or audio, but a $3,000 electronics pack adds those in.
Tack on another $1,300 in gas guzzler tax, then figure another $5,000 to $10,000 for dealer markup and you have a good idea what you can purchase a GT350 for.
