The configurator for the 2019 Ford Mustang is now live. With it, you can spec out the EcoBoost Mustang, the convertible Mustangs, the EcoBoost premium Mustang, the GT, the GT premium and the Bullitt Mustang. Here are the ones that matter (to me).
The base model EcoBoost Mustang starts at $25,845, but after I painted it Orange Fury ($495), gave it 19-inch polished aluminum wheels ($1,095), active value performance exhaust ($895) and the MagneRide Damping System ($1,695), the total came to $34,170. Of course I kept the manual. Why would I pay $1,595 for a 10-speed automatic to do something I can do myself?
For just a little bit more, you can upgrade to the EcoBoost Premium, which appears to have leather seats as an option, as opposed to just cloth.
The GT starts at $36,100. For that relatively low amount of money, you get a naturally aspirated, 5.0-liter V8 with 460 horsepower. Annoyingly, though, if you want to paint it Need for Green (at no additional cost), you must have it with stripes, ick, which cost an extra $475! Do I want the Performance Package Level 2 for $6,500? Hell yes I do.
Aesthetically, the PP2 widens the wheels and gives the car a pointy chin spoiler. It also comes with Brembo six-piston front brakes, extra bracing everywhere, lowered springs and 305-section Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.
Then I gave it Recaro cloth sport seats ($1,595) just because. Final price was $46,670.
And then we’ve got the Bullitt Mustang, with a starting price of $47,590. The active sport exhaust is already included, but the MagneRide is not ($1,695). Inside, the car already comes with leather seats with green accent stitching. My optioned one came to $49,285, but if I were to check all the boxes, the price would come to $52,980.
Unfortunately, the GT350 and the GT500 were not available.
You can play around with the configurator for yourselves. What do your Mustangs look like?
