At Westview Ford Sales Ltd. we’re super excited about the upcoming release of the Ford Mustang Bullitt in 2019. It makes the launch of the 2019 Ford Mustang that much more entertaining, because the Bullitt models have a storied and iconic history true fans of this pony car can appreciate.
History of the Bullitt
Not everyone understands the origin of the legendary Ford Mustang Bullitt. Back in 1968, Warner Bros. released a movie called Bullitt. It starred legendary actor Steve McQueen, whose character drove a distinct green Ford Mustang GT fastback.
The movie was a hit. Not only did audiences love the action and Steve McQueen’s performance, they demanded a Ford Mustang like the one in the feature. Ford decided to fulfill that request, realizing many of the pony car fans were willing to purchase one.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the iconic movie car, Ford has announced the upcoming release of the 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt. It comes loaded with designs that hearken back to the original, while still including all the modern conveniences you get with the current Ford Mustang.
Indicating from the beginning this is no ordinary vehicle is the Highland Green paint colour. It combines with the exclusive black grille and light chrome border to create a similar feel to the original car.
A black leather interior continues the tradition. In addition, the car includes the Mustang GT Premium Package, which adds plenty of other creature comforts. After all, you don’t need to suffer needlessly in the name of nostalgia.
You don’t just get legendary looks with the 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt. The car also packs a serious amount of performance, making it every bit as thrilling to drive as it is to see.
Lurking under the bulging hood is a muscular 5.0-litre V-8 engine. Ford says it whips out at least 475 horsepower, so stepping on the accelerator delivers plenty of thrills. It’s a car that will move you in more ways than one.
If you take the Ford Mustang Bullitt on the track, it can reach speeds of up to 163 mph (262 km/h) That’s great for long straightaways where you want to hit that top speed and hold it for a time.
Connected to the engine is an active valve performance exhaust. It has four tips to let everyone know there’s something extra special about the car. The fully variable exhaust system allows you as the driver to determine when you want it to be quiet, so you’re not waking the neighbors, and when you want to unleash a beastly rumble.
Pushing performance even more for the Ford Mustang Bullitt is the GT Performance package. It improves handling with unique chassis tuning, plus summer-only tires, and a limited-slip differential. You also benefit from the upgraded brake system.
This summer you’ll be able to get the Ford Mustang Bullitt. Since it’s a special-edition model, come to Westview Ford Sales Ltd. to ensure you get one before they’re all gone.
