A new Ford Bullitt Mustang could be on the cards - because everyone wishes they were as cool as Steve McQueen.
With Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson now a brand ambassador for Ford, you better start getting used to seeing the action movie star appearing in the manufacturer’s commercials promoting its latest models. During a recent shoot for a commercial at FoMoCo’s Dearborn facility, a behind-the-scenes video may have leaked an upcoming new Bullitt edition of the S550 Ford Mustang thanks to an eagle-eyed member of the Mustang6G forum who spotted the images.
Images of what could be a new 2018 or 2019 model Ford Bullitt Mustang can be seen shortly after the three-minute mark, posted on a board alongside sketches and renders of future Mustang models.
The design elements strongly hint at a new Bullitt Mustang based on previous models, including the dark green paint job (officially known as Dark Highland Green), a faux gas cap with crosshairs, dark torque thrust wheels, and a de-badged grille. If it’s not an outright leak, Mustang6G points out that it could be a proposal for a new generation Mustang Bullitt. This is perfectly plausible, since Ford has resurrected the iconic Bullitt Mustang in the past with two limited edition models. The first lesser-known model was released in 2001 based on the fourth-gen Mustang, while the last Bullitt Mustang was based on the fifth-gen model in 2008.
