Few automotive brands command the kind of respect and admiration the Ford Mustang has earned over the course of its more than fifty year history, and the arrival of a new model is always cause for celebration. When it comes to the new 2019 model, there is even more cause to get excited: to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the ground-breaking 1968 film Bullitt, Ford is releasing a special edition Mustang to honour the Dark Highland Green GT Steve McQueen drives in its famous chase scene.
The 2019 model is already making waves as the “Mustang Bullitt,” and so far reviewers have been impressed by its sleek blend of retro good looks and modern swagger. The Bullitt’s growling V-8 engine can deliver more than 475 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque, topping out at more than 260 km per hour, and even includes the billiard ball tipped gearshift from the film.
Unfortunately for customers who are looking forward to taking it for a spin themselves, the Mustang Bullitt will not be available until early 2019. But if you want to enjoy the summer in a new Mustang and don’t want to wait until the 2019 models are available early next year, check out the new 2018 Mustangs at your local Ford dealership. The 2018 Mustang featured the first major updates following the launch of the sixth generation in 2015, and the results garnered high praise in the automotive press for its classic design, exciting technological features, and a 460-horsepower V-8 engine that comes with the six-speed standard transmission or a 10-speed automatic variant.
The 2018 Mustang also includes some playful and practical elements of its own, including an active exhaust option that allows you to modulate the exhaust volume. Mustangs are famous for their growl, and when you’re gearing up and weaving through traffic on the highway the noise is completely exhilarating. It’s a little less welcome when you’re pulling out of the driveway on your way to work early in the morning, which is why the option to have a quieter exhaust will probably go down especially well with suburban drivers.
If you live in the Greater Toronto Area and want to find the best deal on a 2018 Mustang, you should visit Colony Ford in Brampton. Not only does Colony offer fantastic deals on all makes and models, it also specializes in Mustang customization. If you want to make your new Mustang completely your own, Colony’s staff will happily help you personalize it with a range of aesthetic and performance products that can be installed in-house.
As the nice weather sets in, many auto enthusiasts are itching to hit the open road in a brand new Mustang. If you want to get the most out of the summer, drop by your local dealership to pick up one of the new 2018 Mustangs before the May long weekend. With a hot summer ahead and the highway beckoning, there’s never been a better time to get behind the wheel of one of the greatest cars ever made.
