With all-new performance gear and its trademark American style, the 2019 Ford Mustang has arrived. In addition to its sleek silhouette and trademark speed, the 2019 Ford Mustang is adjusting its lineup to bring you a better performance. This year, shoppers can add the optional active valve exhaust system to the base four-cylinder engine. Now all Mustang drivers can sound a booming exhaust note.
What's New for the 2019 Ford Mustang?
Mustang GT models with the manual transmission this year now come with rev-matching technology for a smooth downshift every time. Ford is also reviving the Mustang Bullitt for 2019, treating collectors to a Highland Green high-performance machine. This Mustang comes standard with the new Performance package (optional for other trims). In this package, you'll find everything you need to max out performance - from a shorter differential ratio to a bigger radiator to stiffer front springs and a larger rear stabilizer bar.
What's Under the Hood?
Choose between two 2019 Ford Mustang powertrains for the on-road experience you prefer. The base engine is the turbocharged EcoBoost 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine that balances speed with fuel economy. In addition to pumping out 310 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque, it also earns up to 21 city/32 highway mpg.
Upgrade to the Mustang GT to experience everything this muscle car has to offer. The 5.0-liter V8 engine is good for 460 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. Like the EcoBoost engine, the V8 comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission that puts you in total control of your ride. However, if you prefer, you can upgrade to the 10-speed automatic transmission for a smoother ride and improved fuel economy.
Which 2019 Ford Mustang Trim Model Should I Choose?
This year, Mustang shoppers can choose between four worthy trim models, each of which offers its own brand of style, speed, and modern performance technology. The entry-level model is the EcoBoost. In addition to turbocharged power, it comes standard with an impressive list of performance gear. At the track, use the electric line-lock to facilitate impressive burnouts. If your EcoBoost has a manual gearbox, then it also has launch control technology to get you off to a quick start. The standard limited-slip rear differential contributes to the Mustang's smooth, comfortable ride. Inside, the EcoBoost is modern and refined, with supportive cloth seating and connectivity features like Bluetooth and two USB ports.
The 2019 Ford Mustang EcoBoost Premium puts a luxurious spin on things. Premium adds to the EcoBoost's impressive list of performance gear with high-end comforts like leather upholstery and stylish cabin trim. On road trips, dual-zone automatic climate control ensures that both driver and front passenger enjoy their own perfect temperature. The EcoBoost Premium also upgrades your infotainment options, compliments of the Sync 3 central system. The Sync 3 system includes an 8-inch touchscreen, with crisp graphics to enhance usability. Sync 3's Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities display smartphone features directly on that touchscreen, so there's no need to look down at your phone. The EcoBoost Premium even takes listening to a new level, supplying an upgraded nine-speaker audio system.
For traditional V8 power, you need the Mustang GT. In addition to extra speed, the GT also comes standard with power-adjustable front seats to help you find that just-right position at the wheel. Rear parking sensors keep you from scratching your bumper during parallel parking escapades.
When you select the Mustang GT Premium, you're getting both the GT powertrain and all of the upscale items that come with the EcoBoost Premium. Choose this model for both world-class power and premium comfort.
Is the 2019 Ford Mustang Safe?
The Mustang offers three things in abundance: speed, style, and safety. In government crash tests, the 2019 Mustang earned a perfect five-star rating for overall protection. Better yet, the new Mustang comes standard with a rearview camera to help you back out without a scratch. Every model comes with keyless entry and ignition, so you'll be able to get away more quickly when you're in a hurry.
This stylish pony car also offers much in the way of high-tech vigilance. Optional forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking actively helps you avoid dustups. The blind-spot monitoring system increases highway safety by advising you when a vehicle has entered your blind spot.
