Ford Motor Company delivered global debuts for the third-generation, limited-edition Mustang Bullitt – celebrating the 50th anniversary of Steve McQueen’s classic film “Bullitt”. The new Ford Mustang Bullitt, due out this summer for Ford customers in the U.S., is powered by an upgraded 5.0-litre V8 engine that will deliver at least 475bhp and 569Nm of torque, pushing the new Bullitt to a top speed of 263kmph. The original 1968 Mustang GT fastback that starred alongside Steve McQueen in the award-winning movie “Bullitt”, also drove onto the Ford stage at NAIAS, ending a 40-year mystery about the film car’s whereabouts. Offered only for Ford customers in the U.S., the all-new Edge ST is the first version of the new Edge SUV to be unveiled by Ford.
The new Ford Edge will be introduced for customers in Europe later this year in variants including Edge Vignale, ST-Line and Titanium, offering powerful new diesel engines, sophisticated driver assistance technologies and enhanced styling. The all-new Mustang Bullitt is equipped with a manual transmission, and the gear shifter features a white cue ball shift knob as a nod to the original. An active valve performance exhaust system is standard, and retuned to give the car a signature burble. Other standard equipment includes a 12-inch all-digital LCD instrument cluster, identical in function to the cluster introduced on the all-new Mustang that goes on sale across Europe later this year, but with a unique Bullitt welcome screen that starts in green with an image of the car rather than the pony.
