Bullitt for 2009

The Mustang Bullitt™ - returned to the stable for 2009 - it had been introduced as a 2008 limited run of 7,700 units. It continued as a 2009 model due to customer demand. An additional run of 3,000 units was planned, however only 816 were built (635 in Dark Highland Green and 181 in Black).

Inspired by the 1968 film of the same name that featured one of the most memorable car chase scenes in cinematic history, the 2009 Mustang Bullitt is powered by a 4.6-liter V-8 with 315 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque. Both the engine and suspension are modified with Ford Racing Technology.

Highlights and specifications for the 2009 Mustang Bullitt:


  • Highland Green (unique to Bullitt) or black exterior paint

The seats in Bullitt, and in all 2009 Mustangs, are made with foam comprised of 5 percent soy-derived materials in place of petroleum-based products. Earlier in 2009, Ford announced plans to push that figure to 40 percent as soon as possible for foam used in seats and head and hand rests.

The 2009 Mustang Bullitt was built at AutoAlliance International in Flat Rock, Mich. All 2009 Mustangs earned the government's highest five-star frontal crash test ratings.
