Ford is coming up with Mustang GT500 for the model year 2019 and it is being anticipated to be powered by a supercharged 5.2-liter V8 engine with the stupendous braking system. With huge success that followed the launch of Shelby GT350 that was built on the S550 platform, Ford is expecting good reviews and sales for the upcoming GT500 as well. If the history is to be unfolded, the 2013- 2014 GT500 featured the most powerful production V8 with a powertrain that produced an outcome of 662 hp. However, the going might get tougher for the 2019 Mustang GT500 with the biggest competition from the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE and Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat.
2019 Ford Mustang Engine
The speculated engine to be powering the 2019 Ford Mustang GT500 will be a 5.2 liter naturally aspirated V8 DOHC engine that would generate an outcome of more than 526 horsepower with the supercharger, may be approximately 680 horsepower or more and a torque of 630-pound-feet. Just for the sake of information, it is to be highlighted that the current Mustang GT350 offers 526 hp and 429-pound-feet of torque. The upcoming 2019 Ford Mustang GT500’s engine type would be coupled with the seven-speed dual clutch gearbox.
Other engine options available in the lower trims of Mustang GT500 would be a 5.0 liter DOHC 4 valve sequential fuel injection V8 engine and another 2.3 liter Twin Independent Variable Cam Timing (Ti-VCT) turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine. Over and above this, Ford would be offering gigantic sets of carbon – ceramic brakes for the first time in the history of Mustang. The GT500 will also offer prodigious top speed approximately 200 MPH which is another new for the Mustang.
Its biggest rival, Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE delivers an outcome of 650 hp with its supercharged powertrain and Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat delivers an outcome of 707 hp. Hence, even with powerful powertrain, massive speed and epic braking system inbuilt in the 2019 GT500 Mustang, Ford will have to market the product well for even better sales.
2019 Ford Mustang Designing – Exteriors and Interiors
The two-seater, two doors, low height Mustang GT500 would be riding over 20-inch wheels with 315 mm width. The front fascia has been freshly designed with uniquely outlined headlights and front grille. The air vents have been located in the front fender over the tires, which assist in cooling down the engine, brakes and tire temperatures after a while. The rear end has freshly designed tail lights which are styled as a set of three distinct small horizontal lights at either side. The body is sleek and long with the windows contemporarily margined and side view mirrors beautifully designed.
The downward sloping roof at the rear end lends the GT500 supreme finishing over the edge. A long overdue fresh feature to be added in the upcoming 2019 GT500 will be the heads – up display. The interiors are anticipated to be supreme as well, just like the supremacy that the exterior designing showcases. The low height car seats would offer comfortable and roomy accommodation for high-speed long journeys. Ford would ensure the safety of the occupants of the Advanced Airbag System.
This would comprise of front protective airbags to protect the occupants’ upper bodies during a front impact collision, side impact airbags to protect the torso during an impact from the side, overhead airbags for protecting the occupant’s head during a rollover and knee airbags for protecting the lower limbs during a front impact collision. The seatbelts come with pre-tensioners as well which tightens itself when encountering a collision to prevent any forward displacement of the occupant.
