Jenny reviews the 2019 Ford Mustang and she got the bigger of the two engines on offer, the GT 5 litre V8 Fastback. It’s a slight facelift of the latest Mustang and it still packs the V8. For those who like the look but don’t really like the thirstiness​, Ford also have an inline 4 EcoBoost engine on offer.

Engine Specifications


Engine: 2.3L 4 Cylinder Turbo Petrol
Power: 224 kW@ 6,000 rpm
Torque: 441 Nm @ 3,000 rpm
Transmission: 10 Speed Auto 
Fuel Consumption (combined): 9.5L/100km


Engine: 5.0L V8 Petrol
Power: 339 kW@ 7,300 rpm
Torque: 556 Nm @ 4,600 rpm
Transmission: 10 Speed Auto 
Fuel Consumption (combined): 13.6L/100km

It’s also the best-sold​ sports car in the world, thanks to its stunning looks, great heritage, good engines and a price that is well under what the European retro sports cars command. Muscle cars are supposed to be in-your-face, loud, powerful and even vulgar. This one is all that and will please the enthusiasts endlessly. But for me, I​ would be very interested to see what’s​ on offer with the upcoming EV mustang.
