2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt The Photos that Tell a Story The Mustang Bullitt's long hood, deleted badges, and sharply-designed lighting are effortlessly cool. The Highlands Dark Green is also a give-away as it's only offered on the Bullitt. The sloping roof line is pure coupe and extends outward to wrap over the rear wheels. It's a powerful rear-wheel drive stance and looks exciting standing still. A pleasant interior awaits inside. Not simply loaded up with features (though it is), the surfaces are softly padded and receive green stitching. The steering wheel is finely crafted, feels good in the hands, and is even heated. Yet it fails miserably in the ergonomics with plainly shaped and hard to reach buttons (e.g. the cruise control, hands-free, and phone controls). On the road, the steering is tight and makes for accurate placement in the curves. On the highway, the tires will pull at the steering wheel as they attempt to follow the grooves in the pavement. The cue-ball six-speed manual is the only transmission offered. Its short action prefers a hard shove though it's a satisfying and solid engagement. Rev-match downshifts are new for 2019 and may convert some of the heel-toe faithful. The first few gears could benefit from shorter ratios to provide a little more fun at sane speeds. As it is, second gear will surpass legal speeds. The large digital display is a big part of the car's high customization ability. The Bullitt receives a special welcome display. Retro-styled, bucket seats provide a great balance between comfort and holding one steady through the turns. The seats are heated and warm up quickly, though I wished the ventilation feature performed better to fight the black interior's heat soak, and keep one cool when pushing it hard. The cockpit is full of impressive details such as the spun-look aluminum, high quality controls. The C-Pillar lands on a horizontal fender surface as the wide rear fenders speak to the car's intentions. The sloping rear glass limits which humans can survive the back seats. The 5.0-liter V-8 is the heart and soul of the Mustang. The Bullitt receives special tuning and several go-fast bits to develop more power than the standard-fare Mustang GT. While it is flexible enough in power to make it up any highway pass in 6th gear, the engine clearly makes its peak in the upper half of its rev speeds. Wide stance, wide tires, and classic triple stripe tail lights. This is a Mustang. This is the only exterior Bullitt logo, which vaguely represents a fuel cap and neatly breaks up the rear panel. The rear view camera is neatly hidden from plain view.
