With the 2019 Ford Mustang, muscular performance meets aggressive exterior design and modern technology features. It’s an ideal recipe for a 21st-century muscle car.
Ford’s Mustang is a midsize sports car with a four-seat cabin, and it’s sold in coupe and convertible body styles. Convertibles are available in Ecoboost, Ecoboost Premium and GT Premium trim levels. The coupe is sold in five trims: Ecoboost, Ecoboost Premium, GT, GT Premium and Bullitt. All Mustang sports cars are rear-wheel drive.
For the 2019 model year, the limited-edition Bullitt trim level joins the Mustang family. The Bullitt honors the iconic 1968 movie of the same name. In that flick, Steve McQueen drives a classic Mustang through the streets of San Francisco in one of the most exciting car chases ever filmed. The 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt is available in the same shade of Highland Green as the car used in that scene.
The Mustang coupe has a dramatic fastback roofline that caps off an athletic, sculpted body. For the convertible, the coupe’s metal roof is replaced by a power-retractable soft top. You’ll see expressive details in either case, including low-profile headlights, a distinctive hexagon-shaped grille and retro-style taillights.
Standard features include automatic LED headlamps, LED taillamps, power-adjustable side mirrors and 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels. The list of optional equipment includes mid-body side stripes, side scoops and a decklid spoiler. Also, 18-, 19- and 20-inch wheels are offered.
With its sleek instrument panel and meaty three-spoke steering wheel, the Mustang’s cabin boasts a clean, modern design. The front seats are pleasantly roomy, but the rear seats will be a cramped fit for most adults. Coupes provide 13.5 cubic feet of cargo space in the trunk. With the convertible, cargo capacity drops to 11.4 cubic feet.
The 2019 Mustang provides standard equipment such as cloth upholstery, manually adjustable front seats, air conditioning and a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel with a tilt-and-telescoping column. Options include leather upholstery, heated and cooled front seats with six-way power adjustability, dual-zone automatic climate control and a heated steering wheel.
Ford’s Mustang provides quick acceleration and engaging handling. Both a six-speed manual transmission and a 10-speed automatic are available. Power is sent to the rear wheels.
The Mustang’s standard engine is a turbocharged 2.3-liter V6 that serves up 310 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. Ford also offers two optional V8 engines. The naturally aspirated 5.0-liter unit can produce 460 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. The Mustang Bullitt gets a retuned version of that engine with 480 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque.
You can also enhance the Mustang’s performance with available features like a sport-tuned electronic stability control system, a multimode drive system, a sport-tuned suspension and Brembo brakes.
According to the EPA, the Mustang achieves fuel economy of up to 21/32 mpg city/highway.
The Mustang offers a modern range of tech amenities. Base models come with a rearview camera, keyless entry and ignition, a 4.2-inch LCD display, two USB ports and a six-speaker audio system.
Options include an 8-inch touchscreen, a voice-activated navigation system, Android Auto/Apple CarPlay smartphone integration, satellite radio and a nine-speaker audio system.
The list of available active safety features includes adaptive cruise control, a blind-spot monitor and forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking.
"This is a REAL sports car enthusiast's dream - power, looks, handling, and quality at a fairly reasonable price. The manual trans engages the driver completely (both arms/legs) and demands attention. The exhaust in Sport mode is intimidating and just adds to the experience."
Comfy leather w/vented seats - this is a feature usually reserved for luxury vehicles
Very easy on the eyes. A real head turner. Great ground affects.
Fantastic! A naturally aspirated engine is always preferable and to have 526 HP too is a plus.
Not this car, but then you don't obtain such a vehicle for this purpose
Very much so considering what comparable HP cars are going for today
"This car is a delight. A GT with active exhaust, magnetic shocks and Performance Package 1, it is great daily driver, super fast and superb handling/steering, it is better than my prior car...a BMW M3. Esay to live with on long trips: comfortable seats, user friendly and a room trunk."
"Very comfortable and stylish.
Surprisingly good mileage and great handling.
Power is constant from idle to redline and has more than enough pick up and go to satisfy most anyone's desire.
I opted for a base model due to some of the included extras in a premium were not to my liking.
I was in it for the handling and performance, not the fancy lighting or toggle switches.
The drive modes are still attainable with the proper button selection."
The seats are very comfortable and plenty of interior room.
The leather padding and metal accenting is very good for a non specialty model.
The shifter and pedal placement are the best I've ever encountered in a mustang.
The throws are relatively short and very precise.
The base sound system accepts Bluetooth and USB, so worrying about buying an aftermarket head unit is non existent. The sound is crisp and clear, with noticeable bass.
The viewing is superb, and the standard back up camera and lighting do the job very well.
Nothing is non functional, from the heat extractor vents on the hood, to the vents in the front bumper.
Everything serves a purpose.
The lines are clean and flow very well.
The haunched rear quarter panels give it a very Retro and haunched stance.
The headlights and foglights are very crisp and illuminate exceptionally well.
The antenna is rather subtle and doesn't hurt the roof line.
What can really be said?
460 horsepower in stock trim.
It dyno'd at 423/398 at the tire on 91 octane.
The car pulls very smoothly in all gears, most often than not, 6th can be used to pass others on the highway.
It hurries to 60mph in a touch under 4.5 and that is using first gear alone.
The sound of the exhaust is quite nice, a nice burble and hum at cruising speeds.
The handling is leaps and bounds beyond the old solid axle Mustangs of the past.
It holds firmly in corners and doesn't scamper about with imperfections in the road.
The four piston brakes provide very adequate stopping power in all instances.
The selectable steering modes are very well executed.
Comfort is great for long trips. It's light and dulls out road feel a bit.
Normal is a very good setting for around town or when more direct feel is desired.
Sport is very precise, a bit stiff, and offers a lot of road feedback, very good for spirited driving and windy roads at speed.
Being a single individual, family seating was not my concern.
However being objective, the passenger seat is very comfortable and the area is spacious.
The rear, is a bit more roomy than the 05-14 model years, but would not comfortably accommodate full sized adults on a prolonged trip.
But will do in a pinch.
The cargo room is adequate for most things. And the ability to drop the rear seats will add a few extra feet if absolutely necessary.
The ratings for mileage are 17/24.
I however have found this to be conservative.
At 70mph it is very consistent at 29 mpg.
On slower roads, doing 60 can net 34 without hills.
My average combined mileage is 23.6
The cost for filling never exceeds $40, and that is using 100% octane rated at 91.
It can easily accept 87, and is content running E10-E15.
My fueling is purely preference based on the ability to get 100% fuel.
Insurance was a mere 30 dollars higher than my older Mustangs, factoring in a 13 year difference.
All in all, for a $31,000 vehicle, I am beyond impressed with the advances Ford has made on their vehicles.
