Last year, the Ford Mustang went through a handful of tweaks, including an updated appearance, more powerful engines, a new transmission, and the deletion of the V6 engine. With all these changes, it’s not a surprise the 2019 Mustang will, for the most part, be a carryover model. The exception is the resurrection of the Mustang Bullitt.
2019 Ford Mustang Design
In regards to appearances, we anticipate the bulk of the Mustang lineup to be largely unblemished. This shouldn’t be a big offer considering its recent mid-cycle refresh. However the Bullitt version, that’s a completely different story. The Bullitt will not coming in with any crazy changes, however it will set itself apart with its Dark Highland Green exterior paint, a smattering of chrome accents, Black NitroPlate exhaust tips, 19-inch torque thrust wheels, a black grille, red-painted Brembo brakes, and the Bullitt logo on the gas cap.
2019 Ford Mustang Interior
The interior is the exact same offer, as the base Mustang will likely carry on unchanged. Nevertheless, the Bullitt version will have a few tweaks. Unique updates will include a 12-inch digital cockpit console, offered leather-trimmed RECARO seats with green stitching, and a heated leather steering wheel.
2019 Ford Mustang Engine
The basic 2019 Mustang lineup is expected to retain the very same cast of engines. These include the basic 2.3-liter four-cylinder with 310 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque, and the GT’s 5.0-liter V8 with 460 hp and 420 lb-ft. Both couple with either a basic six-speed handbook or an optional 10-speed automatic. The 2019 Mustang Bullitt, however, will push the V8 to 475 hp thanks to its brand-new Open Air Induction System, Shelby GT350 consumption, 87 mm throttle bodies, and powertrain control module update. The Bullitt will come specifically with a manual transmission.
Without any changes expected structurally or in regards to safety features, we expect the 2019 Mustang and Mustang Bullitt to carry on the same security scores as the current Mustang. While it performed well in most IIHS crash tests, its “Acceptable” score in the small-overlap test and “Basic” score in front crash avoidance kept it from being a Top Safety Pick.
2019 Ford Mustang Pricing & Release Date
Ford expects to have the 2019 Mustang Bullitt in display rooms by this summertime, and we expect the rest of the Mustang lineup to come at the very same time. Main pricing stays unpredictable now, but try to find very little boosts to the carryover versions of the Mustang relative to the 2018 model, which varies from $28,080 to $47,090 (location costs included). As for the Bullitt, it’ll likely come in a bit greater than last year’s $47,090 ceiling.
