The 2019 Mustang comes in three basic versions in 2019. The EcoBoost turbocharged 4 cylinder that is available in either a fastback or convertible, the GT an 8 cylinder Coyote powered engine that is available in either a fastback or convertible. Each of these two models comes in either a standard equipment group or a premium equipment group. In addition to this, the GT has another option which is the California Special and finally is the Bullitt.
For 2019, Ford continues to offer several versions of the Mustang, which now includes the EcoBoost, EcoBoost Premium, GT, GT Premium and Bullitt trim levels (new for 2019), in addition to the Shelby GT350 and GT350R.
The EcoBoost models get their motivation from a turbocharged four-cylinder, while the GT and Bullitt models come to life thanks to a 5.0L V8. Ford decided to throw the old naturally-aspirated V6 out in 2018, so base Mustangs are powered by a 2.3L turbocharged EcoBoost four-cylinder that generates 310 horsepower and 350 lb/ft. of torque. Buyers can choose either a six-speed manual or 10-speed automatic transmission.
If you enjoy the sounds of a big throaty V8, then you’ll want to go with the GT or Bullitt models. The Mustang GT is powered by a 5.0L V8 with 460 horsepower and 420 lb-ft. of torque, while the Bullitt gets an extra 20 horsepower for a total of 480 horses under the hood. The V8 can also be mated to either a six-speed manual or 10-speed automatic.
Special Edition Models & Variants
Pricing for the 2019 Ford Mustang GT coupe starts at $35,355, while the convertible starts at $44,855. The takeaway should be what amazing value the Ford Mustang GT continues to be in 2019. Not many updates happened of the 2019 model year GT thanks largely to the big investment Ford made in improvements for the 2018 model year.
The legendary Ford Mustang GT California Special is back f0r 2018 with new technology features including rev-matching on 5.0-liter manual-equipped models, the first-ever custom-tuned B&O Play premium audio system for Mustang and three new vintage-inspired colors and over-the-top stripes. The 2019 Ford Mustang GT California Special is a visual standout, featuring a trademark fading stripe that traces from the 5.0 side badge to the rear fender scoop. A signature Ebony Black and Race Red script California Special badge adorns the trunk lid. At the front, the car follows the blacked-out open grille and picks up the Mustang Performance Pack 1 splitter. The California Special wears unique five-spoke painted machined wheels.
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of iconic movie “Bullitt” and its fan-favorite San Francisco car chase, Ford introduces the new cool and powerful 2019 Mustang Bullitt. The Bullitt gets an upgraded 5.0-liter V8 engine that delivers at least 475 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque, pushing the new Bullitt to a top speed of 163 mph – an 8 mph increase versus the latest Mustang GT.
To improve the new Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 driver confidence and lap times, Ford Performance leveraged its Mustang road course racing programs and all-new upcoming Shelby® GT500, infusing GT350 with the very latest in track and street technology. Ford Performance engineers and designers incorporated the latest advances in tire, aerodynamics and chassis technology. Upgrades to the MagneRide active suspension complement aero and tire enhancements made, with recalibrated springs and revised damping to take full advantage of the improvements.
Ford didn’t just phone it in either for 2019 with several improvements made to improve the performance of the GT350R even further. Starting price for the Shelby GT350R is $69,530 for 2019. Enhancements include a new rear spoiler for reduced drag and added downforce with the newly available Gurney flap. This Mustang also features specially designed Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires (they’re extra sticky) that wrap around new 19-inch wheels. These updates required revising the standard adaptive dampers. The Ford Performance team also updated the Shelby’s anti-lock brakes, stability control, and steering system. Inside, the GT350 receives new materials and standard features.
