In 2015, the Ford Mustang underwent a handful of tweaks, including an updated look, more powerful engines, a brand-new transmission, and the deletion of the V6 engine. With all these changes, it’s no surprise the 2019 Mustang will, for the many part, be a carryover model. The exception is the resurrection of the Mustang Bullitt.
2019 Ford Mustang Design
In terms of looks, we expect the bulk of the Mustang lineup to be largely untouched. This should not be a huge offer considering its recent mid-cycle refresh. But the Bullitt variation, that’s a totally various story. The Bullitt won’t roll 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 ideas, 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 very same offer, as the base Mustang will likely continue unchanged. However, the Bullitt version will have a few tweaks. Special updates will consist of a 12-inch digital instrument panel, offered leather-trimmed RECARO seats with green stitching, and a heated leather steering wheel.
2019 Ford Mustang Engine
The standard 2019 Mustang lineup is anticipated to keep the exact same cast of engines. These include the standard 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 automated. The 2019 Mustang Bullitt, nevertheless, will push the V8 to 475 hp thanks to its brand-new Open Air Induction System, Shelby GT350 intake, 87 mm throttle bodies, and powertrain control module upgrade. The Bullitt will come solely with a manual transmission.
Without any changes expected structurally or in terms of security features, we expect the 2019 Mustang and Mustang Bullitt to carry on the same safety ratings as the present Mustang. While it carried out well in many IIHS crash tests, its “Acceptable” rating 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 summer, and we expect the rest of the Mustang lineup to come at the same time. Official pricing stays uncertain now, but search for very little boosts to the carryover versions of the Mustang relative to the 2018 model, which ranges from $28,080 to $47,090 (destination costs consisted of). As for the Bullitt, it’ll likely be available in a bit greater than in 2015’s $47,090 ceiling.
