Among many varieties of legendary Ford Mustang there are few of them that takes special place. The Mach 1 is probably the most famous. James Bond drove it in “Diamonds are forever”. Also, this performance package had few more editions, but every time it managed to make strong impression. The last time we saw it was in 2003, but it lasted only for a year. The new edition is coming as 2019 Ford Mustang Mach 1.
We already saw Bullit for the next season. Besides that, Ford gave us a hint of something spectacular and definitely unexpecting. It is a 2019 Ford Mustang Mach 1 all-electric model. But, it is not certain yet if this or edition for 2020 will get the full electrification.
2019 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Specs and Top Speed
Performance package for the 2019 Ford Mustang Mach 1 will definitely make difference. Standard engine for Ford Mustang is a 2.3-liter EcoBoostthat delivers 310 hp with a help from turbocharger. Mach 1 is definitely getting a bigger and more potent displacement. A favorite for the spot under the bonnet is a 5.0-liter V-8 Coyote powertrain. Legendary mill can produce 435 horses and 400 lb-ft of torque. This will settle this version between Mustang GT and Shelby GT500 models.
Coyote engine is using a 10-speed automatic transmission for smooth gear change. Also, special suspension and brakes will make response much better and sportier. Fuel consumption is not important to buyers of the 2019 Ford Mustang Mach 1.
2019 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Interior and Exterior Changes
It’s been 15 years since the last Mach 1. So, we can’t compare it to its predecessors. Also, the car always brings something special and unique. So, comparison to standard Mustang doesn’t work either. We can see it on the new Bullit. Colors, styling, interior accessories – everything is distinctive for every version of this car.
However, fans can be sure that 2019 Ford Mustang Mach 1 will come with the latest equipment for cabin. Also, luxurious feeling will get a boost from leather seats and upholstery. Designers will probably make a combination of old-school details and modern appearance to get benefit from both segments.
We can only guess what new 2019 Ford Mustang Mach 1 will bring. Base is definitely in standard model. However, designers are going to add bigger wheels. Tuning of other body parts, including hood and spoilers are also certain, but unconfirmed.
2019 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Launch Date
Last time when we saw the Mach 1 edition, Ford celebrated 35th anniversary of the vehicle. Now, Mustang is in the new generation after 50 years of production. And while interest for the standard model is falling, Ford will keep the attention on it with special versions. The 2019 Ford Mustang Mach 1 is one of these. Also, we can expect Shelby and Boss 302 soon. However, we still need to see if Mach 1 will come as all-electric car, or Ford tried to point to some other Mustang.
