A New Ford Mustang Mach 1 Is Coming Next Year

The storied Mach 1 trim returns to the Ford Mustang next year.

  • It will replace the Bullitt as the special non-Shelby Mustang

  • Mach 1 is a trim steeped in Mustang history.

  • Odds are that 480-horsepower will be a minimum.


Over the last 55 years, the Ford Mustang’s been graced with numerous trims, from LX and Stallion to GT, Cobra, SVO and so on. There are a handful of special editions that strike a chord with true Mustang enthusiasts and they are Bullitt and Mach 1. As the past points out, Mach 1 has been a follow-up to Bullitt and it looks like it’s going to happen again. There will be a new Ford Mustang Mach 1 next year.

The Mach 1, a performance package, was first introduced for the 1969 model year and remained on the roster until 1978. The moniker was not to return until the 2003-04 model year after the 2001-02 Bullitt, just ahead of the Mustang’s full retro-reinvention for 2005.

2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt First Review

In the past, the Mach 1 was a combination of power, handling and styling bits over the “regular” Mustangs and we fully assume the next one will follow suit. The Mustang Bullitt is one of our all-time favorite iterations of the long-standing pony car and it already boasts many go-fast bits such as an open airbox, Shelby GT350 intake manifold, and larger 87-millimeter throttle body affixed to the 5.0-litre Coyote V8 for a total of 480-horsepower, up 20 from the GT.  It also sports the MagneRide damping system and Brembo brakes.

There are no further details floating about on the web but we think, like most others, that the new Mustang Mach 1 should be good for 500-horsepower and lots of attitude when it arrives next year.
