We can’t compare new Ford Mustang models without starting under the hood, so that’s exactly where we’re going to start this comparison. The base 2019 Ford Mustang model features a 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine capable of pumping out 310 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. The 2019 Ford Mustang California Special features a 5.0-liter V8 engine capable of pumping out 460 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. The 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt also features the 5.0-liter V8 engine, though now it can pump out 480 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque.
There are a couple of other differences between the 2019 Mustang models in question. For starters, the 2019 Mustang Bullitt and California Special offer up more standard and available features than the base 2019 Mustang model. The two all-new trim levels each also feature a style all their own, with the Bullitt paying homage to the 1968 Ford Mustang GT Steve McQueen drove in the movie “Bullitt,” while the California Special pays homage to the California Special models of yore.
