2018 Ford Mustang GT, 2019 Bullitt Mustang Compared

Like the special-edition Bullitt Mustang models of years past, the all-new, 2019 Bullitt Mustang unveiled this week at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show will come from the factory with some special equipment to set it apart from your average, run-of-the-mill GT. The 5.0-liter Coyote V8 is the same between both models, but the Bullitt-edition gets an extra 15 horsepower courtesy of a different intake manifold, a pair of larger throttle bodies, and an ECU tune. Meanwhile, where the refreshed, 2018 Ford Mustang GT is available in a variety of exterior colors with a range of different wheel designs to choose from, the Bullitt Mustang offers just two paint hues and standard black Torq Thrust-style wheels.

If you want to see exactly how the 2018 Ford Mustang GT and 2019 Bullitt Mustang compare against one another, the folks at CJ Pony Parts have put together this handy infographic that goes over stats like top speed and horsepower, as well as features like transmission, exhaust, and body style. Ford made the right choice when they decided to introduce the new Bullitt Mustang only as a manual-equipped car, and like the original, lightly-modified 1968 Mustang GT driven in the film Bullitt, the special-edition model for 2019 ships with a retro cue-ball shift knob.

The all-new, 2019 Bullitt Mustang will go on sale this summer, boasting most of the standard features from the 2018 Mustang GT Performance Pack 1. Pricing is not yet known.
