2019 Ford Mustang EcoBoost on-sale now from $49,990+ORC

The refreshed 2019 Ford Mustant EcoBoost is on-sale now joining its V8-powered sibling which was launched here in June.

The refreshed Mustang EcoBoost is on-sale now from $49,990+ORC in both coupe and convertible trim. Ford said, the updated Mustang EcoBoost gives buyers more choice.

  • Ford Mustang EcoBoost Fastback (manual) $49,990+ORC
  • Ford Mustang EcoBoost Fastback (automatic) $52,990+ORC
  • Ford Mustang EcoBoost Convertible (automatic) $59,490+ORC
  • Ford Mustang GT Fastback (manual) $62,990+ORC
  • Ford Mustang GT Fastback (automatic) $65,990+ORC
  • Ford Mustang GT Convertible (automatic) $74,338+ORC

“Mustang needs no introduction, and the arrival of the EcoBoost models means that we now have the full gamut of performance options for Australian enthusiasts,” said Ford Australia and New Zealand President and CEO, Kay Hart. “With its turbocharged engine, Mustang EcoBoost adds an advanced 224kW powertrain to that unmistakable, iconic Mustang design.”

In terms of its exterior and interior design, the EcoBoost Mustang mimics its V8 sibling. It’s under the bonnet where the major difference exists. The 2.3-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine makes 224kW and 441Nm of torque and is mated to either a six-speed manual as standard or a 10-speed automatic transmission.

Ford claims the new Mustang is the most advanced ever and it’s not wrong. From the 12.4-inch digital instrument cluster offering three separate views (Normal, Sport and Track) to the Mustang MyMode which allows you to pre-program and then select your favourite drive settings. Even the exhaust note can be tweaked, via Normal, Quiet, Track and Sport.

Like the V8, the EcoBoost Mustang can also be had with Ford’s MagneRide dampers which were previously only available on Mustang Shelby GT350; in fact, there’s plenty of stuff on the new Mustang that’s filtered down.
