Why do you drive a Mustang? If you’re looking for a simple commuter car, there are better options. But if you’ve dreamt of muscle car performance and style since you were a child, you’re among kindred spirits at Kentwood Ford. This year, Ford is making the Mustang dream even more real with the 2019 Mustang BULLITT in Edmonton. Inspired by the famous 1968 cult hit “Bullitt,” the 2019 Mustang BULLITT borrows the soul of Steve McQueen’s iconic forest-green 1968 Mustang fastback, and marries it to the performance capability of today’s 2019 Mustang GT. True to Mustang spirit, the 2019 Mustang BULLITT showcases state-of-the-art driving technology and earth-shaking power, harmonized with American Muscle design cues. Watch the chase that inspired it all, and learn more about this revolutionary car available now at Kentwood Ford Edmonton.
The original Mustang BULLITT was undeniably beautiful, so why change? A fastback body style optimizes aerodynamics and screams speed. From the black nitro-finished exhaust tips to Mustang’s signature LED lighting, details run throughout the car. 5-spoke machined aluminum black 19-inch stand testament to the 1968 original, as does the highland-green exterior. Every detail of the Mustang BULLITT is designed to look like the original, but better.
The 2019 Mustang BULLIT was built for one thing above all else: performance. Its famous Mustang 5.0L V8, with accompanied badging, is back again—only this time, variable fuel injection and variable cam timing produce 21st century performance. Outputting 480 horsepower and 420 lb-ft. of torque, the 2019 Mustang BULLITT accelerates 0-60 mph in under 4 seconds. With performance like this, the only thing the Mustang BULLITT will ever follow is applesauce, rock ‘n’ roll, and black Chargers.
Racing technology has changed, and so has the Mustang. Rev matching technology, launch control, selectable drive modes, and ride dampening, all come equipped, to name a few. The days of leaf suspensions are gone, and are replaced by independent front and rear suspension to nearly eliminate all body roll. Heavy drum brakes are replaced with vented rotors to wick brake heat and gases, providing consistent control performance on demanding drives. It’s safe to say the chase scene won’t last so long this time around.
