Speaking of Shelby, it will get a new and optional Carbon Fiber Handling Package. New kit will add 20-inch black carbon fiber wheels, new adjustable strut top mounts, splitter wickers, and much more. This package should become available on the regular GT version as well. While it isn’t much, Ford at least opted to provide minor updates to its Mustang GT500 model.
The forthcoming 2021 Ford Mustang GT500 will also introduce a couple of interior updates. Mustang comes with a tighter cockpit, and maybe Chevy Camaro ZL1 or Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat are better choices in terms of interior room. However, Mustang looks very modern on the inside and is full of the latest high-tech features. The ride comfort is incredible. The credit goes to magnetorheological dampers and optional Recaro seats.
The rear sits are not recommended for the adults, especially if the front passengers are taller as well. The trunk provides 14 cubic feet of space, which is above the segment average. Every Mustang GT500 comes with an eight-inch touchscreen equipped with Ford’s SYNC3 infotainment system.
