The Ford Mustang returns once again in 2009, for the most part, unchanged. Of note, reports state that only 46,420 units will be available for the model year. If true, every 2009 Mustang, depending on how you look at it, would be a limited-edition vehicle. Special features of the 2009 Mustang include a new glass top roof option as well as special 45th Anniversary badging to commemorate the 45th anniversary of the Ford Mustang's launch on April 17th, 1964. In all, every 2008 model, with the exception of the Shelby GT, will return for the 2009 lineup.

Vehicle Lineup

Ford will once again offer a standard coupe and convertible 4.0L V6 Mustang a 4.6L V8 Mustang in 2009. A glass top roof option is also available for each. In the realm of special-edition Mustangs, the Bullitt returns for 2009 as does the Warriors in Pink Mustang. A total of 2,100 Bullitt Mustangs will be created in 2009. Of the 1,000 Warriors in Pink Mustangs planned for production, approximately $500 from each vehicle sold will go to the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure foundation.

The Shelby GT500 also returns along with the Shelby GT500KR. 746 additional units of the “King of the Road” Mustang will be produced for the 2009 model year due to an overwhelming demand for the vehicle. Of those, 571 will go to U.S. customers. The remainder will go to countries that were not offered the car in 2008, such as customers in Canada. The Shelby GT, however, will not be an offering in the 2009 lineup.

2009 Mustang Lineup

  • V6 Base, Premium (Convertible, Coupe)
  • GT Base, Premium (Convertible, Coupe)
Special Editions:


The standard Mustang lineup will continue to offer a 4.0L V6 engine as well as a 4.6L V8 GT model. The V6 is rated at 210 hp and 240 lb-ft torque while the V8 engine outputs an estimated 300 hp. The Shelby GT500 Mustang features a 5.4L supercharged V8 engine capable of producing 500 hp. The “King of the Road” GT500KR Mustang, introduced in 2008, features a 5.4L supercharged V8 engine capable of producing an impressive 540 hp.


The majority of existing Mustang packages will continue to be made available for the 2009 model year. Of note, Ambient Lighting, Satin Aluminum Dash Trim, and Satellite radio will be standard on all V6 and GT Premium Interior Models. In addition, base V6 and GT Mustangs will no longer be classified as "Deluxe" models. This should help clear up any confusion buyers have regarding the differences between deluxe and premium models. Base will simply be “basic” with premium signifying a model with upgrades over base.

Packages for the V6 Mustang will include the Comfort Package, V6 Appearance Package, the popular V6 Pony Package, the V6 Safety & Security Package, the Premium Interior Package, Sport Exterior Appearance Package, and the Warriors in Pink Package.
