Ford Performance Package Level 2 Breathes New Life In 2018 Ford Mustang GT

2018 Ford Mustang GT

The Ford Mustang has changed over the years to become a full-fledged sports car. It got stability issues even though it had the latest technologies and a new rear axle. The car just loses control at high speeds, which is not a trait known for sports cars. Ford came up with the Performance Package Level 1 to rectify the problem but that did not do much. However, the Ford Performance Package Level 2 seems to be an answer to Mustang’s woes.

The Performance Package 2 adds $6,500 more to the Mustang’s price tag but that is a small price to pay for supreme performance. The package includes magnetic controlled shock absorbers, a rear stabilizer that is 67% thicker and a front stabilizer that is 12% thick, 20% stiff front springs and 13% stiff rear springs. All these upgrades bring increased stability around corners on higher speeds.

To top it off, Ford offers the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires on its 19-inch rims, which are so wide they spoke out from the side of the fenders. Torsen limited-slip differential with 3.73 axle ratio, electric power steering, brand-new front splitter taken from the 2012 Boss 302 Laguna Seca’s and 6-piston Brembo brake-calipers with 15-inch rotors further add to the greatness of the Ford Performance Package Level 2.
