To sit between the Ford Mustang GT Performance Pack and the GT350 is the new GT Performance Pack Level 2. How did the Performance Pack get a level up? A dedicated team Mustang engineers and specialists put in extra hours for the development of the new upgrade to ensure it exhilarates drivers with an incredibly responsive experience.

“A passion to create something special is what really drove this project,” said Tom Barnes, Mustang vehicle engineering manager. “And that really showed in the off-the-clock way we went about doing our work.”
