Engadget Review

A special edition Mustang at a premium price that’s sure to appease film and car fans. The more powerful engine, design and the chance to pretend you’re Steve McQueen make it worth the price for these folks. Everyone else might be better suited with the Mustang GT.

Yes, the Mustang Bullitt is a marketing gimmick. But it’s also an investment, and that’s not oxymoronic with the gimmick thing. These are special cars, with more power and better looks than other Mustangs, and they’ll no doubt gain in value and prestige. Just be sure you’re buying it because you like it, not because you expect others to.

Car and Driver
On paper, the Bullitt wins little to nothing. A cynic could call it the ultimate poser's Mustang, and said cynic would have some semblance of an argument. But get in and actually drive the thing. Forget the baggage of the badge. Hell, forget the movie was ever made. An evocative machine all by its lonesome, the Bullitt is simply one of the most enjoyable automobiles on sale today. There's an ineffable rightness to the car that makes it just that much more involving than the already great Mustang GT, and it doesn't demand the day-to-day compromises of the GT350. In the real world, the Bullitt's only downside is its badge. And that's easy enough to change.

Even though the Mustang can fit two stunned kids in the back, it doesn’t have the classic muscle car size of the Challenger, nor does it have that whole retro vibe. Despite the 50-year-old references, Bullitt drives like a thoroughly modern sports car and has all the tech that comes with it. The Camaro probably is quicker, more powerful and better composed, but Bullitt Mustang looks better than them both, even without the Bullitt name. It’s just cool.

The bottom line is that the 2019 Mustang Bullitt is a good old-fashioned muscle car with modern handling. It’s a delight to drive and you can really tell that the engineers wore out more than a few pencils making this car just right. Even if you’re not a fan of the movie, the smooth de-badged exterior in deep green makes the Bullitt a treat for the eyes, while the performance gear makes it a giggle to drive.
