2019 Ford Mustang GT driving on pavement

Adored by muscle car enthusiasts for generations, the 2019 Ford Mustang is known for its relentless, envy-inducing muscle.

Keep reading to learn more about the 2019 Ford Mustang GT at Akins Ford near Atlanta, GA.

For the 2019 model year, the GT is given a 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V8 good for 460 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque. Sprinting from 0 to 60 mph in less than 5 seconds, this V8 pairs with a 6-speed manual transmission. New for 2019, rev-matching technology is offered standard exclusively on GT models. The rev-matching feature offers smooth downshifts and eliminates the need for heel-and-toe downshifting. Simply hold your right foot on the brake while depressing the clutch with your left, then pull the gear lever down to your desired lower gear. The system then handles the rest. If you prefer a tighter hold on the reigns, this feature can be disabled easily through the central touchscreen. If cranking between gears isn’t your thing, an optional 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission will get you there.
