New colors, new features underpin an otherwise not-new Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang (pictures)

The GT350 was an all-new car last year, and so 2017's update is tiny, but welcome nevertheless.

Cars are Andrew's jam, as is strawberry. After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.

The Track Package is now standard equipment for all GT350s, and that includes a decklid spoiler, a strut tower brace, magnetorheological shocks and coolers for the engine oil, differential and transmission.

The first of two new packages is the Electronics Package, which includes Ford's new Sync 3 infotainment system, navigation and a nine-speaker premium audio system.

We have no idea how much all these fancy new baubles will affect the GT350's sub-$50,000 starting price. Ford didn't make mention of it.
