New Mustang Bullitt edition introduced

New Mustang Bullitt edition introduced

Molly McQueen, the granddaughter of actor Steve McQueen, introduces the 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, on January 14, 2018.

The 5.0-liter V8 in the new Mustang Bullitt puts out 475-hp (355 kW) and 420 lb-ft (570 Nm) of torque, improving on the standard car's 460-hp (344 kW) and 420 lb-ft of torque.

Amid talk about electric vehicles, pickups and SUVs, Ford unveiled a 2019 Mustang Bullitt at the 2018 North American International Auto Show. It's painted Dark Highland Green (Shadow Black is available, but why would you want that?), the wheels evoke the original and the vehicle is nearly devoid of external insignia - the "5.0" badges have disappeared from the wings, there's not a Ford logo anywhere, and the only identifier is the Bullitt boot badge. Other features that pay tribute to the vehicle McQueen drove are subtle chrome accents around the grille and front windows, retro 19-inch aluminum wheels, red painted Brembo brakes, and a unique black front grille.

Ford says the 2018 Mustang Bullitt will be available on sale this summer - no word yet on whether the auto will make its way Europe-wards. Eagle-eyed McQueen fans will also note the lack of badging on the new 'Stang - just like the King of Cool's 1968 ride.

The 2019 Mustang Bullitt will be available this summer, though a specific release date and price has not yet been announced. Also on, a heated leather steering wheel and a 12-inch, all-digital LCD instrument cluster, identical in function to the cluster introduced on 2018 Mustang, but with a unique Bullitt welcome screen that starts in green, with an image of the vehicle depicted instead of the ubiquitous pony.

Ford has sold Bullitt editions before, including one for the fifth gen; but the one that comes 50 years after the film and the original in the chase (even if it is a 2019) has anniversary appeal.

"When making a Bullitt, there are certain things it absolutely must have", said Carl Widmann, Mustang chief engineer. One Mustang suffered most of the punishment on the famous San Francisco jumps and was scrapped. That screen shows an image of the vehicle rather than the pony seen in normal GTs.

Other nods to McQueen's movie ride include the chrome accents, torque thrust wheel and faux circular gas cap. Hence, this Mustang is different from a standard GT in many ways. Unique 21-inch wheels are available and the interior features a redesigned centre console with an all-new rotary gearshift dial that frees up space, allows easier access to the wireless charging pad and enhances the vehicle's modern, sophisticated feel.

It wound up in the hands of Sean Kiernan, who inherited it from his late father.

Options will be limited to three separate choices: An upgraded electronics package, a more sporting semi-active suspension and Recaro seating that features a contrasting green stitch.
