2019 Ford Mustang GT500 Release Date, Specs and Changes
The most powerful vehicle that Mustang could provide is the GT500. The company usually released the vehicle at the final development stage. It seems they are working for the new 2019 Ford Mustang GT500. It is the regular version that comes with a mid-cycle facelift. Perhaps, it only takes few months for its launch day. Some unofficial reports reveal about the interesting details of the vehicle.
The coming of 2019 Ford Mustang GT500 is the sign of the most powerful production from Mustang. Some sources suggested the company to come as the most powerful car from US automakers. It is not something easy to achieve. As far as we know, the company is going to design the vehicle based on the GT350 R. It means the vehicle can be much better than the previous model. The GT350 R is one of the best muscle cars. In another word, the new GT500 has some similarities to the concept. For example, the car may get better cornering with the enough straight-line performance.
Based on our reliable source, the company offers bigger wheels than the previous model. The spy photographers spotted the camouflaged prototype with 20-inch of rims that had 305mm section tires cover for its front and back. It is the sign that the car has larger brakes from the GT350R. Besides, we expect the carbon-ceramics are available as the standard. It has the same independent suspension setup. At the front, it has more aggressive splitter with different hood. For the back, it has more aggressive exhaust with bigger diffuser.
There are not many drastic changes to provide when you go inside of the new 2019 Ford Mustang GT500. Some reliable sources recommended the company to borrow the cabin design from the GT350, instead of the R. It helps the car to have a great level of comfort especially for the passengers. As you know that, the GT350 has Recaro leather cover and the technology features are the top end. What make the car different from the R are the four-seats as the standard, if we can expect.
2019 Ford Mustang GT500 Engine
Before, the prototype used a twin-turbocharged V8 unit. However, Ford has two possible options. It is possible to use the V8 engine 5.0 liter Coyote, or the larger Voodoo V8 unit 5.2 liter. The 2019 Ford Mustang GT500 is more reasonable to have the Voodoo engine to make more than 750 hp and more than 700 lb-ft of torque power. On the contrary, the Toyota cannot provide 600 hp with the same engine settings. If it goes to be true, it means this new car is able to hit 60 mph in less than 3.0 seconds while the top speed is 200 mph.
The company does not release the price yet, but it can be more than the previous model. We think the new 2019 Ford Mustang GT500 is the most expensive models with the starting price about $100,000.
