2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt

Coming to a dealer near you this summer, the hotly anticipated and powerful new 2019 Mustang Bullitt release. 

With the Mustang Bullitt prepped to hit this summer, Ford is preparing for one hot summer blockbuster. The iconic 2019 Mustang Bullitt is based on the legendary 1968 Mustang GT fastback Steve McQueen thrashed in the classic action thriller Bullitt 50 years ago. After much excitement and anticipation, Mustang die hard fans can finally own their own piece of automotive greatness, and Ford is expecting it to be a big hit.

“Since its introduction earlier this year, Ford dealers have been fielding calls from customers wanting to know when they can order this unique piece of automotive history,” said Corey Holter, Ford car group marketing manager.

Complete with the classic cue ball shifter, the 2019 Bullitt bundles the latest Mustang GT Premium and Performance Package content in a sleek, understated design, that also packs a hefty punch. The new Mustang Bullitt delivers even more power, thanks to its performance open air intake, Mustang Shelby GT350 intake manifold, plus a larger 87-millimeter throttle body, and unique powertrain control that makes 480 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque. Reaching top speeds of 163 mph, this is sure to be on many Mustang enthusiasts wish list.

 

‘The new Bullitt will be every bit as cool and charismatic as the original ’68 Mustang.’

 

The Bullitt is available in Shadow Black or classic Dark Highland Green. It features subtle chrome accents on the unique black grille and front windows, classic torque-thrust 19-inch aluminum wheels, and red-painted Brembo brakes.

“The new Bullitt will be every bit as cool and charismatic as the original ’68 Mustang,” says Holter.

We can’t wait to hop in and live out our Steve McQueen fantasies.
