Great changes will happen with new 2019 Ford Thunderbird that is for sure. Being a part of dying personal luxury sporty cars class, Thunderbird has to be as attractive as fast, but also to offer great performances under the hood. All of that is expected in this model, including possible changes in engine, but nothing is confirmed by the manufacturer yet. All we said in the article are our predictions, but according to information we had by now.
It is still not clear how the manufacturer will change 2019 Ford Thunderbird from the outside. It should remain the exclusivity and sportiness, especially in larger grille which will be fulfilled with modern details on the front bumper. It should remain a two-door coupe with the rounded short rear end and maybe changed details as well as the lowered roof. In order to increase the speed, the manufacturer will surely decrease the height of the car and improve aerodynamic shape of the car, which all change the original shape of the car.
Inside of 2019, Ford Thunderbird is expected huge changes. Although the old model has been elegant enough and provided many attractive things, there should be many novelties in this car, too. Among them is a great combination of red, dark grey and chrome, with the modernly designed steering wheel and chromatic hands on the door. Being a sporty car, Thunderbird will have a sporty designed cabin, but with an acceptable level of luxury.
Even though the manufacturer has not shared the strength of 2019 Ford Thunderbird engine, there are expectations that there a stronger engine could be found. However, the base model could get 2-liter of 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine with 250 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, which is average strength of the engines in the class, while there could be another, stronger version with 300 horsepower. Whatever engine is, it will be paired with nine-speed automatic transmission and cars should be made as a front-wheel driving system, but, even it will be hard to the manufacturer to offer all-wheel driving system, there are chances to see that option, too. There is planned a hybrid engine, too.

Old buyers will notice increasing in price, which presumes numerous changes in design, equipment and engine strength. However, it is hard to predict which competitor will be affected by this model the most, but let’s say that some models of Volvo, Ford Taurus and Chevrolet Corvette should be frightened.
