2020 Ford Mustang Bullitt: Specs, Release Date & Price
There will be a new 2020 Ford Mustang Bullitt. That’s right, the special edition Ford Mustang from the movie with the same name released five decades ago. The new special edition Ford Mustang will pack lots of exciting things, from design, engine, and features. Let’s see what the new Bullitt has in store, shall we?
2020 Ford Mustang Redesign
According to New Ford Mustang concept, the soon-to-be-released car will be stripped off almost all of its exterior badging. To connect the car with the movie, a single, trunk-mounted badge which resembles a fuel-filler cap is included. Its window line and grille will have chrome. Finally, there will be 19-inch wheels and red brake calipers, which complete its look.
Inside, you can find Bullitt’s specific cues like accent stitching, leather-lined interior, a shift lever with a white cue ball style and a 12-inch digital display.
The 2020 Ford Mustang Bullitt will be available in two color options: the original Shadow Black from the movie and Highland Green.
The new Bullitt will come with a few options. Although options are limited, the features are great. For instance, the electronic package option includes features such as blind spot monitoring (which include rear cross-traffic alert), memory seating, navigation, Recaro seats and adaptive suspension. On the other hand, the performance package option includes these features: a bigger radiator, a larger anti-roll bar, a limited-slip differential from Torsen and 6-piston front brakes from Brembo.
Alright, now let’s see what is under the hood of the 2020 Ford Mustang GT500 Bullitt. The new Bullitt is going to be more powerful than the 2018 GT. It will use a 5-liter, V8 engine which is capable of producing up to 475 horsepower with 420 lb-ft of torque. This means that the 2020 Bullitt has 15 more horsepower than the 2018 GT. Not only that, it will have higher top speed as well, reaching up to 163 mph.
There is a bad news for automatic fans, though. This 2020 Ford Mustang GT will only come with a six-speed manual transmission. There will be no automatic transmission. Other than that, the new Bullitt will also have MagneRide Damping System, which improves the driving experience.
2020 Ford Mustang Release Date and Price
There is no announcement about the release date and price from Ford yet. However, we expect the New Bullitt to be sold just a bit higher than the 2018 GT Premium, which is sold at $44,000 range. This is expected since the new Bullitt will be more powerful than the 2018 model and come with lots of features. As for release date, rumor has it that the car will be released in mid-year this year.
The new 2020 Ford Mustang Bullitt will surely excite lots of people when it is released. How could it not? It has stylish design, more powerful engine and lots of useful features. Unfortunately, it will only come in manual transmission and there will be just a few options. That said, these few available options available come with interesting features, which is great.
Are you interested in this car? Well, if you are, just be patient for a bit. This special edition Ford Mustang will be released soon.
