2019 Ford Mustang – With such success behind the Shelby GT350 program on the S550 platform, it’s no wonder that Ford Performance is moving forward with a brand new 2019 GT500. The rumor has run since the GT350 began to hit the road, that Ford Performance has made it to 11 and go out with a car that simply blows out of the water.
As one would expect from a 2019 Ford Mustang wearing the badge, the latest muscle car Ford will be a more aggressive version of the GT350 styling wise. It’s not visible at the moment as the prototype is camouflaged to the teeth, but Ford will certainly deploy a unique aerodynamic package. While it will borrow some of the body panels of the GT350, the GT500 will have some features of its own. For starters, we know for sure that the high-performance coupe will sport a larger, fixed-wing coupe above the trunk lid. This function is not yet present on the last test mule, but we saw on the previous prototypes, next to a massive new bumper separator. Well hidden by camo, the front fascia should also use larger air intakes and a revised bumper grille set that leaves more air in the engine. Speaking of which, the largest, most powerful powertrain will come with a brand new hood equipped with a large power dome.
The interior of the GT500 is a complete mystery of this writing, but logic dictates that it will be based on the GT350. It will remain recognizable as a Mustang and similar to a dashboard, door panels, and a center console, but it will have a range of unique features. While the steering wheel will likely come from the GT350, the dashboard will have custom gauges, while the infotainment screen will be updated accordingly.Look for “GT500” badges, unique upholstery stitching with high contrast, and sports seats.
The 2019 Ford Mustang GT500 is considered Ford’s answer to the 650 horsepower Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and the 707 horsepower Dodge Challenger Hellcat, so everyone expects a powerful V8. However, no one seems to agree on the type of V8. As our colleagues at Car and Driver point out, a new twin-turbo V8 and supercharged V8 have been proposed as GT500 engines.
It is obviously too early to talk about pricing, but the 2019 Ford Mustang could be the most expensive version of the sixth-generation Mustang and cost around $ 70,000. In addition, the word says that Ford plans to build a limited number, which could result in unreasonable concession fees.
