The 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt promised to be a mean green movie-inspired machine, but Ford hadn’t nailed down any exact figures for horsepower and torque until today. The newest Bullitt will get 480 horsepower and 420 lb-ft. of torque.

This isn’t too far off of the estimates they gave us when the model was launched, but at least now we know for sure.

Additionally, Ford confirmed some of the items we’ve already seen on the 2019 order guide for the model: a top speed of 163 mph (eight mph higher than that of the Mustang GT), Mustang GT350 intake manifold, 87-millimeter throttle body, performance open air intake, black NitroPlate quad-tip exhaust, red-caliper Brembo brakes and unique powertrain control module calibrations.


Badging is minimal, save for a few obvious “Bullitt” wordmarks in key places, there’s green stitching in the leather interior, and chrome accents on the black grille and front windows. It all rides on 19-inch aluminum torque-thrust wheels. You’ll get two color choices for your Mustang Bullitt: Shadow Black and (of course) Dark Highland Green.

All in all, it’s a very pretty car, with adequate power to match. Please remember to use caution when entering and exiting Cars and Coffee at all times, as we’d hate to see it eat a curb.
