2019 Mustang Transmission
One of the highly-anticipated changes for 2019 is that the six-speed manual transmission is now available with rev-matching (on the 5.0 engine only). This will allow for cleaner and crisper downshifts that will add even more power and excitement to your highway merges and passes. Shifts are short and crisp, ensuring a smooth driving experience that keeps you engaged with the driving experience. Plus, no-lift shift capability for all gears means that you can keep the accelerator floored while changing gears.
Those who favor the 10-speed SelectShift automatic that debuted in 2018 will still have that option of course. It remains unchanged on both the EcoBoost and Coyote engines. With minimized torque loss and incredibly quick shifts, it’s still the choice to get if you want to squeeze every bit of acceleration out of your Mustang. Paddle shifters can be used for the times when drivers want to make their own gear changes.
On the Bullitt, the six-speed is the sole transmission option, so fans of the car will have to make sure they’re good with three pedals! One change that drivers will immediately notice when they enter the cabin of the Bullitt is that the standard Mustang GT shift knob has been swapped out for a vintage-inspired cue ball shifter featuring the shift pattern embossed in black. In addition to paying homage to the classic movie, the glossy white finish adds a nice pop to the interior and really completes the nostalgic feel of the car.
