2020 Mustang vs 2019 Mustang: What’s Different?

Whether you’re contemplating your first Ford Mustang or your fifteenth, 2020 is an exciting year for fans of the Pony. From new cosmetic options to a serious upgrade in the power department, this could be the best year yet to take the plunge and gallop off the lot in the car you’ve always wanted.

What’s New

Check out a few of the changes on the 2020 Mustang!

FordPass Connect

Using your phone to schedule remote starts in advance and to find your car when you can’t remember where you parked are examples of the innovative features of FordPass Connect. While FordPass was introduced in 2016 on select models, it now comes standard on all Ford models, including the Mustang.

Color Options

If you had a favorite 2019 color, you may be disappointed as a few popular options won’t be available in 2020. Need for Green, Orange Fury, Ruby Red, and Ignot Silver are all on the chopping block. The good news is that fresh (and relatively similar) choices have been introduced for the 2020 Ford Mustang that are sure to become new favorites, including Twister Orange, Rapid Red, and Iconic Silver.

Three new wheel options make their debuts in 2020, including 17” Sparkle Silver-Plated Aluminum (standard on 100A), 19”x 9” Machined Face Aluminum with Low-Gloss Ebony Painted Pockets (included with 2.3L high-performance package), and 19” Premium Painted Aluminum (included in EcoBoost handling package.)
Bad news if you were a particular fan of the 19”x 9” Low-Gloss Ebony Black-Painted Aluminum or the 19” x 8.5” Polished Aluminum as those are retired, but with the stylish new options, they probably won’t be missed too much.

High-Performance EcoBoost

This change is where the rubber really meets the road. The Performance Package is no longer available. Instead, most of the features of that package have been incorporated into the High-Performance EcoBoost.
Many of the 2020 Mustang’s features, such as color and interior options, can be outfitted from regular or premium trim packages, but the performance of this car is the stuff of Mustang enthusiasts’ dreams:

  • 330 Horsepower
  • Performance Exhaust
  • Gauge Pack
  • Heavy-Duty Front Springs
  • Rear Sway Bar
  • Upgraded Brake Rotors
  • Unique Chassis Tuning and Stability Control Tuning

Stay in control by adding the Handling Package to your 2020 Mustang and enjoy further upgraded wheels, premium brakes, MagneRide damping system, and a limited-slip rear axle. Note that the handling package is only available on Fastback Mustangs with the EcoBoost High-Performance Package.

Of course, you want to look good while driving fast and the High-Performance EcoBoost Mustang will not disappoint on that front either. You’ll turn heads thanks to:

  • Magnetic Colored Exterior Mirrors
  • Magnetic Colored Spoiler
  • GT Performance Package Front Splitter
  • Gray or Silver on Magnetic Hood Accent Stripe
