One of the coolest naturally aspirated Ford Mustang models you can get is the Bullitt Mustang. The video below takes a bone stock 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt and straps it to the dyno to see what its 5.0-liter V8 engine is making when it comes to power. The 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt is rated at 480 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque from its third-gen Coyote 5.0-liter V8 engine.
It’s common for Mustang fans to take their cars to a dyno before they start modifications to get a baseline run on what sort of power their car is making to the rear wheels. In the case of the 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt, a dyno test with a bone stock car showed that the car made 426 horsepower and 391 pound-feet of torque at the wheels.
The person operating the dyno notes that the MT82 is a very efficient 6-speed manual transmission and says that is the reason that the car has only about a 12 percent power loss through the drivetrain. We wonder if the car makes more power than Ford claims. The dyno operator also notes that with full bolt-ons, the third-gen Coyote V8-powered Mustang is on its way to 500 horsepower at the wheels.
Not many years ago, a supercharger struggled to get that much power out of a Mustang. It’s great to see modern Ford Mustang cars making so much power; it’s not so great to see how much the cars have increased in price in the last few years. The 2020 Mustang Bullitt is the same car, but the price went up by $1,200. Check out a top speed run for a Bullitt Mustang on the Autobahn.
