2020 Ford Mustang Bullitt Safety and Reliability

Ford Mustang Bullitt Reliability Rating

2020 Mustang Bullitt Safety

The Mustang Bullitt achieved commendable ratings by the major safety rating agencies. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the 2020 Mustang full marks in every category, but the folks over at the IIHS took a more critical viewpoint: their crash tests revealed an average performance for the all-important small front overlap test, but in the majority of the other crash tests the Mustang performed well. The IIHS failed to test headlight performance and didn't give a rating for the optional driver assistance and crash prevention systems.

2020 Mustang Bullitt Key Safety Features

Standard safety features on the 2020 Bullitt include dual-stage front airbags as well as front knee airbags, front-seat side airbags, and side curtain airbags. A rearview camera and advanced traction control help keep things in line. Despite the increased power and handling capabilities of the Bullitt, Ford didn't think it necessary to include any modern driver assistance tech as standard. To get basic blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, you'll have to fork out for the Bullitt Electronics Package, which also includes voice-activated navigation with SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link.

2020 Mustang Bullitt Reliability

Despite offering a wide range of trim and engine options, the Mustang range of cars has proven to be reliable, and the same goes for the Bullitt: despite a number of recalls issued over the past three model years, not one affected the angry green machine, and a JD Power score of 76 is a testament of its overall reliability. Ford offers the same warranty as it does for the rest of the Mustang range, which consists of a three-year/36,000-mile basic warranty, including a five-year/60,000-mile drivetrain and roadside assistance plan as well as a five-year/unlimited-mile corrosion warranty.
