2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt first drive review

The Mustang Bullitt starts at $47,590, and you can spend up to $52,980 if you choose every option.

Ford’s smartest horse

Let’s cut right to the chase. There are only three options on this year’s Bullitt, and one of them is the seats. The Bullitt comes standard with regular Mustang GT seats upholstered in black leather with green contrast stitching. They’re super comfortable, with full eight-way power adjustment and power lumbar support. They’re also heated and ventilated for additional comfort.

The alternative is a set of Recaro sport seats for $1,595. If you’re skinny and you plan to take your Bullitt to the race track, you will like the Recaro seats. However, if you’re on the larger side they’re probably going to be tight, and they offer only minimal lumbar support. All adjustment (fore/aft, up/down, and seatback angle) is manual, and there’s no heating or ventilation available.

With that in mind, we recommend you test both seat options before you make your decision. You’re sure to have a strong preference one way or the other.

Technically speaking, the Bullitt is a four-seater. However, the back seat is mostly vestigial, and we didn’t even try to climb back there and sit down. It’s a good place to put your backpack, though.

The Bullitt offers several infotainment options to choose from. The basic stereo is a nine-speaker unit shared with the premium trims on all Mustangs. It’s got SYNC 3 with voice control, Bluetooth, USB input, AM/FM, satellite radio, and support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Optionally, you can choose the Bullitt electronics package for $2,100 and that gets you the 12-speaker B&O Play sound system with navigation, CD player, and HD Radio. Really, either infotainment option is good. It takes a lot of volume to hear anything over the engine, anyway.

The Bullitt also comes with a 12-inch digital instrument cluster. This is fully configurable and its design changes when you cycle between the various driving modes. It shows turn-by-turn navigation instructions, infotainment information, and everything else the car can possibly tell you. It’s even got a G-force monitor and a nifty display of air intake temperatures, air-fuel ratio, and related data. The Bullitt also comes with a pair of gauges up on the dash to display oil pressure, which is handy and reassuring, and intake manifold vacuum, which is fundamentally useless information but still strangely interesting.

Down on the center stack, Ford gets points for keeping it real because you get analog audio and climate controls. You can use the touch screen if you prefer. There are also toggles for various functions like driving modes and the hazard lights. Finally, one last Bullitt touch is that the shift knob is a white ball modeled after the original movie car………….Read More>>
