2019 Ford Mustang Preview

Thank you for visiting Sheridan Ford! As the new model year approaches, consider the upgraded upcoming Ford models while you begin to research new cars to lease or buy.

Watch out for the 2019 Ford Mustang. The iconic Ford pony car is better than ever. This year also features a revamped BULLITT model— celebrating the legendary car from the 1968 film Bullitt starring Steve McQueen. The new Ford Mustang performs and handles like no other car in its class.

Power

The new Mustang is available in either fastback or convertible, with eight models to choose from:

  • EcoBoost® Fastback: 3-L EcoBoost® Engine
  • EcoBoost® Fastback Premium:3-L EcoBoost® Engine
  • EcoBoost® Convertible: 3-L EcoBoost® Engine
  • EcoBoost® Premium Convertible: 3-L EcoBoost® Engine
  • GT Fastback: 0-L Ti-VCT V8 Engine
  • GT Premium Fastback: 0-L Ti-VCT Engine
  • GT Premium Convertible: 0-L Ti-VCT Engine
  • BULLITT: 0-L Ti-VCT Engine

A 6-speed manual transmission comes standard on each model, with a 10-speed automatic transmission available to replace the manual transmission. The 2.3-L EcoBoost® delivers 310 HP and 350 lb.-ft. of torque and the 5.0 L Ti-VCT Delivers 460 HP and 420 lb.-ft. of torque. Each model guarantees impressive and efficient power.

Each model allows for five performance settings, which include normal and track and drag strip settings.

Handling

Enjoy a smooth drive with an independent rear suspension and the available MagneRide® Damping System. Both of these features work together to ensure your Mustang adjusts to the changing road conditions. In an independent rear suspension, when one wheel hits a bump in the road, it does not affect or set the wheel it shares an axle with off course. This keeps your vehicle more balanced.

Additionally, the available Electric Power-Assisted Steering (EPAS) settings create the necessary steering conditions. Comfort is the perfect setting for the everyday drive and requires minimal effort. Sport requires the most effort and connects you with the road in a more immediate way. Normal combines the two: it is effortless but allows for more precise steering than you’d find in the comfort setting.

Ford designed each model of the 2019 Mustang with great power and performance to expertly handle the road, regardless of the twists, turns and bumps.

Technology

Be sure to opt for the Ford Smart and Safe™ Package, which features numerous driver-assist features. The combination of these features, such as BLIS® (Blind Spot Information Services) and a Lane-Keeping System, allow you to drive confidently and safely.

The new Mustang comes standard with SYNC® technology (upgrade to SYNC®3 available). SYNC® is a voice-activated system that allows you to navigate your way around, make calls, answer text messages and change your music—all hands free!

The FordPass™ smartphone application lets you easily schedule regular maintenance, compare fuel prices and find parking.

Other Features

Do you have a need for speed? The 2019 Ford Mustang satisfies this need. Use TrackApps™ to view various performance metrics when you take your Mustang out for a spin on the track. Launch Control (manual only and only for use on a track) ensures a quick and responsive start by integrating brake control, traction control and powertrain control. Electronic Line-Lock (also only for use on a race track) warms up the rear tires by keeping the front brakes locked.

The 2019 Ford Mustang is sure to be yet another hit among Ford, Mustang and muscle car enthusiasts. Stay tuned for an in-depth review! In the meantime, go see Joe at Sheridan Ford to test drive the new Mustang yourself!
