480-Horsepower 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt Gets $46,595 Pricetag
The unreasonably powerful 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt will command a surprisingly reasonable sticker price when it arrives this summer: $47,495, including the $900 destination and delivery charge. Ford announced the price of the 480-horsepower limited-edition pony car on Thursday to mark the opening of order banks at dealerships around the United States.
“The new Bullitt will be every bit as cool and charismatic as the original ’68 Mustang,” said Corey Holter, Ford car group marketing manager. “Since its introduction earlier this year, Ford dealers have been fielding calls from customers wanting to know when they can order this unique piece of automotive history.”
In addition to pricing, Ford also confirmed that the Mustang Bullitt will deliver output of 480 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque with 93-octane fuel. Thanks to its power, as well as a performance open air intake and the Mustang Shelby GT350’s intake manifold, the Mustang Bullitt will be able to hit a top speed of 163 miles per hour—8 mph faster than the 2018 Ford Mustang GT.
What Ford has yet to confirm is quantity—given its limited-edition status, as well as the triple-digit VIN of the first production model recently sold at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction, it’s fair to assume that the final number of Mustang Bullitts built will be quite small. All the more incentive to snatch one up right now if you’ve got the chance—they’re liable to move faster than … wait for it … a speeding Bullitt.
