2011 Mustang GT ConvertibleOn the outside and inside, the 2011 Mustang is largely a carry over from the 2010 Model Year; however, in addition to major powerplant and transmission upgrades there is another bonus.  The 2011 V6 Mustang gets the standard 2010 Mustang GT suspension.  The 2011 Mustang GT gets the 2010 Track-Pack suspension which includes parts from the 2010 Ford Mustang Shelby GT-500 and the 2008 Mustang Bullitt:

- Lower rear control arms
- Front anti-sway bars
- Rear anti-sway bars
- Shocks / Struts
- Springs
- More aggressive front and rear brake pads


Also the 2010 Track-Pack included a unique calibration for the Advance-Trac active handling system.  This calibration added a third "sport" mode to the system which allows for more aggressive driving for track use.  The sport mode is now standard on the 2011 Mustang GT.  These parts combined to give the 2010 Mustang an impressive .93G skidpad rating, which means the 2011 Mustang GT should see similar numbers.

Optional Brembo Brakes for Mustang GTThe other new addition is the Brembo brake package, a $1,695 option that puts a set of 4-piston Brembo brakes up front and leaves the stock rear calipers and aggressive compound pads.  Unique 19-inch wheels and tires are mandatory to clear the calipers, which are wider than the standard front twin-piston PBR calipers.
