A dual-clutch transmission feature had been going on trend with modern models in the automobile industry at present. In fact, the brand new 2017 Ford Mustang Shelby GT 350 has followed suit with its 7-speed dual clutch transmission.

Transmission Upgrades

As if the 2017 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 cannot be even more enhanced as the carmaker added more tweaks to the iconic muscle car. The model will be available with a dual-clutch 7-speed transmission - a competitive adjustment against the Chevrolet Camaro 1LE's all-wheel drive automatic transmission feature, according to Jalopnik.

The improvements to the vehicle's transmission were said to make the driver shift swifter than any muscle car in the industry to date. In fact, the dual-clutch feature was considered as an inevitable upgrade to the car.

According to Ford Motor Company, the 2017 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 transmission is powered by TREMEC and is a unique performance-oriented feature. The said upgrades will be available for both the 2017 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 along with the 2017 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R.

Furthermore, it has an Ebony Black-painted aluminum front, is powered with an SYNC 3 where the drivers can easily command the vehicle to activate its functions. There also lies the smart hardware and software, a touchscreen that displays phone, audio, and navigational functions on its home screen, has improved responsiveness with the convenient swipe feature, has enhanced voice recognition, has easy destination entry, and has optional navigation which could find landmarks.

Also, there is the Siri Eyes Free, an iPhone feature that can easily sync to the vehicle along with a 48 RECARO cloth and Miko suede sports seats.

The 2017 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 has been winning races for this year. However, the car's lead at the Lightning Lap 2016 against the Chevrolet Camaro was close enough due to the rival's six-speed automatic transmission feature. Will the update make it perform better?
