2019 Ford Mustang: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Model Preview

Last year, the Ford Mustang underwent a handful of tweaks, including an updated appearance, more power, a new transmission, and the deletion of the V6. With all these changes, it’s no surprise the 2019 Mustang will, for the most part, be a carryover. The exception is the resurrection of the Mustang Bullitt.

In terms of looks, we expect the bulk of the Mustang lineup to be largely untouched. This shouldn’t be a big deal considering its recent mid-cycle refresh. But the Bullitt version, that’s a totally different story.

The Bullitt won’t roll 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 tips, 19-inch torque thrust wheels, a black grille, red-painted Brembo brakes, and the Bullitt logo on the gas cap.

The interior is the same deal, as the base Mustang will likely carry on unchanged. However, the Bullitt version will have a few tweaks. Exclusive updates will include a 12-inch digital instrument panel, available leather-trimmed RECARO seats with green stitching, and a heated leather steering wheel.

The standard 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 standard six-speed manual or an optional 10-speed automatic. The 2019 Mustang Bullitt, however, will push the V8 to 475 hp thanks to its new Open Air Induction System, Shelby GT350 intake, 87 mm throttle bodies, and powertrain control module update. The Bullitt will come exclusively with a manual transmission.

With no changes expected structurally or in terms of safety features, we expect the 2019 Mustang and Mustang Bullitt to carry on the same safety ratings as the current Mustang. While it performed well in most IIHS crash tests, its “Acceptable” rating in the small-overlap test and “Basic” rating in front crash prevention kept it from being a Top Safety Pick.

Pricing & Release Date

The 2019 Ford Mustang is expected to begin production in June 2018. We anticipate an on-sale date sometime in late summer.

Official pricing will start at $26,580 including destination for the Mustang EcoBoost Coupe with manual transmission. The Convertible starts $5,500 higher at $32,245. Opting for an automatic adds $1,595.

The Mustang GT starts quite a bit higher at $36,255 for the Coupe and $45,755 for the Convertible. At the top of the range, the new Mustang Bullitt has been priced from $47,495.

In most cases, prices are up by $165 across the range compared to the previous year.

Noteworthy competitors include the Chevrolet Camaro and Dodge Challenger.
