2018 Ford Mustang Bullitt Confirmed For NAIAS Debut

It seems that Ford might be planning a surprise unveiling for the all-new Bullitt Mustang during this year’s Detroit Auto Show.

A source told Autonews that the Bullitt will be unveiled at NAIAS as a 2018 model, just in time for the 50th anniversary of the famous Steve McQueen movie which came out in 1968, featuring an iconic car chase scene.

Despite this rumor, Ford spokesman Mike Levine stated that “We don’t have any Mustang news to share today but we love the interest in America’s favorite muscle car.”

The Bullitt Mustang was also not among the cars previewed by Ford for the media earlier this month, but we’ve know for quite some time that an unveiling would happen sooner rather than later, with leaks springing up as early as February 2017.

Last month, thanks to a Mustang6g forum member, we caught a glimpse of what appeared to be the Dark Highland Green 2018 Bullitt, filming a commercial in Chicago. Meanwhile, earlier in the year, the same car appeared on a board found in a behind-the-scenes video featuring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

Powered by a 5.0-liter Coyote V8, the 2018 Bullitt Mustang will come with an upgraded suspension, five-spoke black and chrome alloys, black tailpipes, red Brembo brakes and Recaro seats. There will also be a faux gas cap with a crosshair on the rear fascia, instead of the ‘GT’ badge.
