Our Take

from the expert editorial team

By Matt Schmitz

CARS.COM — Did you know that today is National Mustang Day? OK, neither did we until (who else?) Ford told us. Falling so close to Easter this year, the automaker ensured it wouldn't have its thunder stolen by a giant egg-caching bunny by laying an Easter egg of its own: the return of the top-performing 'Stangs — the Shelby GT350 and GT350R — for the 2018 model year.

The Shelby will again be powered by the 2017 version's 5.2-liter V-8 that cranks out 526 horsepower and 429 pounds-feet of torque. For comparison, the 2017 GT model has a 5.0-liter V-8 that makes 435 hp, while the base model has a 3.7-liter V-6 that makes 300 hp. That's in addition to the Shelby's braking bona fides courtesy of 15.5-inch two-piece front rotors and six-piston Brembo calipers. It also features a MagneRide damping system.

All that carries over to 2018, but buyers will have a choice of three new exterior colors: Orange Fury, Kona Blue and Lead Foot Gray. Available on both the GT350 and GT350R are the Electronics Package, which includes Ford's Sync 3 multimedia system, voice-activated navigation and a nine-speaker stereo, and the Convenience Package on GT350 models only, replacing the Recaro manual sport seats with six-way power-adjustable heated and cooled sport seats with suede inserts.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
