In 1969 and 1970, Ford released a special edition of Mustang. We never saw this model again, but true fans and enthusiasts are dreaming of it. So, rumors about 2019 Ford Mustang Boss 429 are probably far-fetched stories for enthusiasts. But, did they?
In 2017, we could see Roush launching their version of the Boss 429. For some, this means nothing. On the other hand, it could hint some new things which are about to happen.
2019 Ford Mustang Boss 429 Release Date
Ford is always full of surprise. But, in one thing they are usually predictable – anniversaries. Remember, in 2015 they launched a new generation of Mustang. The sixth-gen vehicle came out exactly five decades after the first pony car appeared. So, the 2019 Ford Mustang Boss 429 would be the 50th anniversary edition model as well. We doubt Ford will miss it.
2019 Boss 429 Price
We can’t predict too much about the price of the new 2019 Boss 429. As the limited edition for the anniversary, only one thing is certain – the car will be expensive. Very expensive. The legendary pony car starts from $25,000. However, the 2019 Boss 429 version is not going to be even close to this cost. This model could be more similar to Shelby editions. Current GT350 is around $60,000, and Boss will top this one too. With a limited number of models rolling out the factory lines, the 2019 Ford Mustang Boss 429 price will get a six-digit value. For example, one of the limited Bullitt models ended up at $300,000 at auction for its 50th anniversary.
Boss 429 as Limited Edition in 2019
According to rumors, this could happen. It is not just a rumor, and Ford is preparing a limited edition of the muscle car. As in 1969 and 1970, the 2019 Ford Mustang Boss 429 will not get a massive production. In its first year buyers got 859 units, and next year just 499. How many 2019 Boss 429 cars we will see next year. Also, exact release date is unknown as well, but we can claim that pony car is not coming so soon. Also, Ford will give a spotlight to the new Mach 1 which is coming as an EV.
2019 Ford Mustang Boss 429 Engine is So Predictable – a 7.0-liter V-8
Original Boss 429 had a 7.0-liter powertrain under the hood. So, it is not a coincidence why we are getting info about the same displacement. Nevertheless, the company is not creating the mill just for this anniversary occasion. They already have a 7.0-liter V-8 drivetrain in its offer. Good enough to tune it for 2019 Ford Mustang Boss 429.
The F-250 super-duty truck is going to use this kind of engine. It should be the replacement for aging 6.2-liter powertrain. With such switch, we can expect only upgrades. For the super-duty segment, a 6.2-liter engine could create 385 hp. A 7.0-liter V-8 will add more ponies, while the special treatment for 2019 Ford Mustang Boss 429 is going to bring breathtaking results. No one can claim yet what to expect from it.
2019 Ford Mustang Boss 429 Unique Styling and Price
Ford will tune this car so it will be a mix of traditional and modern times. However, after 50 years it is hard to use anything from the past, especially in such fast-growing industry. Nevertheless, custom details, such as gauges and shift know could remind us on the original vehicle. Whatsoever, the 2019 Ford Mustang Boss 429 will be built with unique parts and details no other car from this company is going to get.
With so many unknown things, we can’t predict the price of 2019 Ford Mustang Boss 429. It will definitely be high. But, everything depends on Ford, if it will pack luxurious and high-tech equipment, or they will go with some modest premium accessories.
