Ford has kept fans on edge about the potential for a new Bullitt Ford Mustang, but the strongest evidence yet has emerged. A member of the Mustang6G forum posted several photos of what appears to be a sixth-generation Bullitt Mustang with a film crew in the Chicago, Illinois, area.
Eagle-eyed observers will note the Mustang pictured does not wear any “5.0” badging and it’s sans a rear spoiler like most Mustangs. The wheels also recall a retro design unlike any optional wheel for the 2018 Mustang, and the paint hue certainly seems Dark Highland Green in nature.
Next year mark’s the 50th anniversary of “Bullitt,” the iconic film that first featured the Dark Highland Green pony car driven by none other than Steve McQueen in an epic car chase scene through San Francisco. The anniversary could coincide with a new Bullitt Mustang quite well, but Ford has been mum on any official information.
Previously, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson may have outed the new Bullitt Mustang in a behind-the-scenes look at a Ford service commercial. In the background of one particular shot, viewers will see a sketch board filled with photos of what appears to be a sixth-generation Bullitt Mustang.
Ford last revealed a Bullitt Mustang in 2008, and previously in 2001. Ford may simply be prepping promotional content, but it seems more than likely the Bullitt will soon return.
