In 2015, the Ford Mustang went through a handful of tweaks, consisting of an updated appearance, more effective 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 terms of looks, we expect the bulk of the Mustang lineup to be mostly unblemished. This should not be a big deal considering its current mid-cycle refresh. But the Bullitt version, that’s a completely different story. The Bullitt will not coming in with any crazy changes, but it will set itself apart with its Dark Highland Green exterior paint, a smattering of chrome accents, Black NitroPlate exhaust suggestions, 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 deal, as the base Mustang will likely carry on unchanged. However, the Bullitt variation will have a few tweaks. Exclusive updates will consist of a 12-inch digital cockpit console, available leather-trimmed RECARO seats with green stitching, and a heated leather guiding wheel.
2019 Ford Mustang Engine
The basic 2019 Mustang lineup is expected to retain the 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 pair with either a basic six-speed manual or an optional 10-speed automated. The 2019 Mustang Bullitt, however, will push the V8 to 475 hp thanks to its new Open Air Induction System, Shelby GT350 consumption, 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 regards to security features, we anticipate the 2019 Mustang and Mustang Bullitt to carry on the very same security ratings as the current Mustang. While it carried out well in most IIHS crash tests, its “Acceptable” ranking in the small-overlap test and “Basic” ranking in front crash prevention kept it from being a Top Safety Pick.
2019 Ford Mustang Pricing & Release Date
Ford expects to have the 2019 Mustang Bullitt in showrooms by this summertime, and we expect the rest of the Mustang lineup to come at the exact same time. Official rates remains unpredictable now, however search for very little increases to the carryover versions of the Mustang relative to the 2018 model, which ranges from $28,080 to $47,090 (destination fees consisted of). As for the Bullitt, it’ll likely can be found in a bit higher than in 2015’s $47,090 ceiling.
