Only those familiar with Steven McQueen’s eponymous 1968 action movie will understand the Ford Mustang Bullitt down to every feature. The Grand Touring car came to light from scenes of the legendary high-speed chase in the action movie, and Ford is turning down any form of disappointment to the degenerative excitement by offering a special edition for the film’s 50th Anniversary.
The 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt marks the third tribute model for Bullitt from Ford in the last 18 years. The previous tribute models, built in 2001 and 2008 which were not supplied to the UK market come in dark green or blank paint and Ford’s current smartest horse is not missing the color-code while also parading a hotter engine. Ford is taking a new leap with this tribute model by offering the 2019 Mustang Bullitt to its UK fans regardless of the limited number of production.
Ford raised the new Mustang Bullitt performance above all its Mustang GT based cars despite having the same 5.0-liter engine in other GTs. The 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt has the latest version of Coyote 5.0-liter V-8 alive, built to feature a cold air intake system to aid a deeper breathing, an intake structure borrowed from the Shelby GT350 and a 6 percent larger 87mm throttle body, all engineered to provide a 20 hp bump above the 2018 model. Despite having the same 420 lb-ft of Torque, which demonstrates more stamina for speed, the 2019 Bullitt delivers more than 7,000 rpm to beat its GT class.
You must be fascinated by the Mustang exhaust note which has taken a new trend. Aside from providing great sounds, the grumbling adjusts based on how you are driving, with each level of throttling giving a unique note. A drop-down of the gear gives the throttle a different jinx and that’s quite notable at bending corners or while pulling into a parking space. More from the car’s tradition, the engine is paired with a six-speed manual transmission gear which is now fitted with active rev matching, there’s no automatic system.
All the three options are available in only black or dark green color and they all deliver 7400 rpm. One of the options is the $2100 Electronic package which features navigation, blind-spot monitoring system, support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, satellite radio, SYNC 3 with voice control, Bluetooth, and a B&O Play sound system with 12 speakers. Another is the $1595 leather Recaro seats preferably for skinny users; they’ll probably be tight if you are large. The next performance option is the $1695 magnetorheological or MagneRide active dampers: electronic shock absorbers that response to changing road conditions by adjusting their damping rate every few milliseconds.
The 2019 Ford Bullitt Mustang price for the electronic package is available for $49,340. You would spend around $50,935 for the leather Recaro seats and up to $52,980 if you want every option.
