2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt Long-Term Road Test
There's one question we'll surely never be asked during our 40,000-mile evaluation of the 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt: "What car is that?" That's because not only is the Ford Mustang one of the most recognizable cars on the road but also because the dark-green pony car was immortalized in pop culture when Steve McQueen hurled the original 1968 Mustang GT fastback through San Francisco in the iconic movie Bullitt.
Before all the haters bemoan the film's many shortcomings and the modern car's nostalgic shtick, they should know that the 2019 Bullitt Mustang is more than a cash grab that panders to sentimental baby boomers. In fact — cheesy branding aside — we believe it could be the best all-around Mustang ever. With the perfect balance of performance enhancements and desirable features, the Bullitt edition is an excellent driver's car that truly can be enjoyed every day. Likewise, its unmistakable appearance helps it stand out on the street better than any current Mustang not wearing a Shelby badge.
