2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt Orders Start Rolling in for Late Summer

The limited-edition 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt is officially on sale for pre-order, and the orders are rolling in at Ford dealerships across the country. The Bullitt won’t be available to drive until late summer, but this exclusive 480-horsepower generating Mustang is already drumming up excitement.

2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt

Inspired by the 1968 Mustang GT fastback featured in the movie Bullitt starring Steve McQueen, the new Mustang Bullitt will be offered on the GT Premium trim and will feature the Performance Package, bringing together sleek styling, luxurious features, and serious power.

In honor of the movie Bullitt, which showcased a Highland Green Mustang GT, the special edition Mustang Bullitt will come in just two colors: Shadow Black and the classic Dark Highland Green. Red-painted Brembo brakes join a black grille and chrome accents for unique, standout styling.

With an impressive 420 lb-ft of torque and speed topping out at 163 miles per hour, eight mph higher than the latest Mustang GT, the Mustang Bullitt is one of the most powerful cars ever made. Its larger throttle body combined with its performance open air intake and Mustang Shelby GT350 intake manifold make for incredible power and the unique powertrain control module deliver the boost needed to take it up to its 480 horsepower.

New Mustang Bullitt Edition Commemorates Famous Car Chase

The 1968 movie Bullitt is best known for its epic 10-minute-long car chase scene in which police detective Frank Bullitt drives his Mustang GT through the streets of San Francisco in pursuit of criminals behind the wheel of a Dodge Charger R/T. Recently, Ford debuted the new Mustang Bullitt Edition for the 2019 model in honor of the car chase scene’s 50th anniversary.

Mustang Bullitt Edition

Heavily inspired by the film model’s original design, the Ford Mustang Bullitt Edition has been stripped of all its badges and the grille. Chrome accents and 19-inch wheels come with the model, and the color palette only includes two colors — black and Highland Green, the shade of Bullitt’s vehicle in the movie.

On the inside, modern technology and comfort mix with styling cues from the past, and the Mustang Bullitt’s 5.0-liter V8 has been returned to deliver 475 horsepower for more performance thrills.

The 50th anniversary came with perfect timing, as the film’s original model— long thought lost and destroyed somewhere in Mexico — was rediscovered and inherited by current owner Sean Kiernan only four years ago.

The new 2019 Mustang Bullitt Edition will be rolling out across dealerships this summer, so stay tuned for more news and a chance to test drive it here at Tipton Ford.
