2019 Ford Mustang GT500 Specs, Price, Release Date
Recently, Ford unveiled the facelift of their 2019 Ford Mustang GT500 with several changes from the original design. It seems they can launch it soon. The spy photographers spotted the camouflaged prototype in a final development stage. As we know that, the new vehicle is the top end version ofre Mustang with the enough amounts of output and great driving experience.
The company wants to give something different from the rivals, especially for the live rear axle. It is possible for the new 2019 Ford Mustang GT500 to share the running gear with the GT350R. It means the vehicle is able to work well on the track. To make it different from the R, we expect the company designs the vehicle with the standard carbon ceramic disc brakes, bigger calipers for the front and bigger wheels. The last prototype was spotted with 20-inch of rims with the cover of 305 section tires for the front and the back.
It happens because the larger rotors that require extra clearance. If you follow the development of the prototypes, the car got the same body as the GT350R. Some differences are available. The car has new front end with the different aerodynamic kit. Besides, the bumper is lower with the larger splitter and larger air intakes compared to the GT350. It also has a smaller bulge. At the rear, it has the larger diffuser compared to the GT350 and quad exhaust pipes. It is possible for Ford to provide an active rear wing since they always test different wing designs for it.
2019 Ford Mustang GT500 Interior
We think it is good if the company provides the identical cabin design to the rest Mustang lineup. We want to see the new digital instrument cluster as the standard as well as the redesigned Sync3 infotainment unit. They can provide the Recaro seats with the standard rear seats. All leather upholstery is possible to offer for the new 2019 Ford Mustang GT500.
When it comes to the powertrain, there is no old supercharged V8 engine and 5.8 liters. It only provides a small amount of power and it does not a good match for the S550 series Mustang. It seems the company can use the twin-turbocharged with the V8 unit as the new engine. Another option is the twin-turbo Coyote V8 engine 5.0 liter or Voodoo twin-turbo V8 unit with 5.2 liters for 2019 Ford Mustang GT500.
