2019 Ford Mustang Sports Car

2019 Mustang
Regardless of where you are in the world it's hard to think of a car more famous than the Ford Mustang, even though it has only been officially available in most markets for the last few years. For more than 50 years it's been one of the most recognizable sports cars there has ever been, but a lot of its success has also been built on the fact it's also one of the most affordable sports cars and is therefore more accessible to more people. The 2019 Ford Mustang is the best version so far of this legendary sports car, so let's remind ourselves why the Mustang remains so fabulous and so desirable to this day.

Iconic styling

In the 1980s Ford took a bit of a left turn for a while with the design of the Mustang, but for most of its 50-plus years on the market the exterior styling of the Mustang has retained a common theme. The car we have today is obviously very different to the look of the originals of the 1960s, but it's also instantly identifiable as a modern take on that classic design. Last year this latest generation that was launched in 2015 got revised headlights and an updated rear end, and the nose was also lowered by a tiny amount. It may not sound like a lot, but these tweaks made just enough to keep the current generation achingly modern and instantly desirable.


The Mustang has been adorned as a muscle car out there, but it's never been found lacking in this important area either. It might be almost unthinkable for some muscle cars to not offer a V-6 engine option at all, and especially if the base engine then became a four-cylinder. However, Ford has never shied away from being brave with the Mustang and now it seems entirely reasonable for the standard powerplant to be a four-cylinder EcoBoost turbo. When we look at the number associated with the EcoBoost inline-four it's easy to see why most fans have been won round. The four-pot puts out an impressive 310 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque, so who needs a naturally aspirated V-6? Of course, it would be unthinkable for there not to be a V-8 available and most Mustang enthusiasts will inevitably gravitate to the fabulous 5.0-liter V-8 in GT models. The V-8 develops a fabulous 460 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque, and buyers can now even customize the exhaust note of their GT with the Active Valve Performance Exhaust System.

Trim levels and value

The range is fairly straightforward these days. The entry point to the 2019 Mustang range is now the EcoBoost in fastback and convertible body styles, and then there's a higher-spec EcoBoost Premium. Next up is the GT in both body styles with its V-8-power, and yes, you guessed it, a GT Premium. After that we still have the Mustang Bullitt, the Shelby GT350 and GT350R, all of which are fastback-only models.

What's almost as exciting as the car itself is the pricing. The starting MSRP* is currently as low as $26,395, and for less than $36k you can have a 5.0-liter GT fastback capable of getting from 0 to 60 mph in less than four seconds.
