There are two options of the engine which are an all-American V8 or a turbocharged 4-cylinder. The 5.0-litre Coyote V8 doles out 460 PS and 569 Nm of torque (19 PS and 27 Nm more than the pre-facelift version) while the 2.3-litre EcoBoost puts out 314 PS and 475 Nm (38 Nm more powerful).
The 2019 Mustang can come with a reworked 6-speed manual gearbox and a newly-developed 10-speed automatic transmission. Ford claims the 6-speed manual, available for the V8-powered GT only, comes with a dual-mass-flywheel and a twin-disc for stronger torque. The 10-speed, meanwhile, delivers quicker shifts and minimize friction.
