The 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt is technically an homage to the 1968 Steve McQueen film "Bullitt," and specifically the Mustang in that movie that participated in one of the most famous car chases in film history. Its green paint, 1960s-style black wheels, cue ball shifter and various Bullitt badging would be the tell-tale sign of this tie-in. However, the Mustang Bullitt is so much more than that. Even if you had no idea there was a movie, the Bullitt would be the coolest, best-driving and generally most appealing 2019 Mustang. In this video, we explain why.
Besides its subtle and oh-so-cool appearance (Steve McQueen was really onto something with that look), the Bullitt essentially takes a Mustang GT with the Premium and Performance packages, and the optional Active Valve Performance Exhaust. It then upgrades it with a few bits from the Mustang Shelby GT350 to gain an extra 20 horsepower (480 total). You can further upgrade it, which we recommend, with the magnetically controlled adaptive suspension that improves both ride and handling.
