Ford is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the iconic movie Bullitt starring Steve McQueen and introduced the limited edition 2019 Mustang Bullitt. It carries a retuned V8 engine and a classic roar in a beefy yet sexy body.
The 2019 Mustang Bullit was unveiled at NAIAS 2018 in Detroit and is the third-generation member of the McQueen family. As such, genes from the original Mustang GT still flowed through the new model, like the 19-inch classic torque thrust aluminum wheels, red painted Brembo brakes, and the black front grille among other subtle hints.
Interestingly, it still has the same white cue ball shift knob as in the movie. And yes, this means the new Bullitt is all manual. Fun!
Under the hood, the re-tuned 5.0-liter V8 engine churns out at least 475 horsepower and 570Nm of torque that gallops its way to a top speed of 262kph (163mph). The company adds that this is faster (by just a bit) than the latest Mustang GT.
The interior has been fitted with leather trims and green accent stitching running along the dashboard, door panels, center console, and seats — giving you that special Bullitt experience. Buyers can opt for the Shadow Black or the movie-inspired Dark Highland Green and choose one of three factory-installed options.
The Bullitt Electronics Package includes navigation, driver memory seats and mirrors, upgraded sound system, and Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert. There’s also the MagneRide semi-active suspension system for optimized driving performance or the RECARO black leather-trimmed seats.

All the essential gadgets you’ll ever need for a glamping trip
Visiting Chile with Nicole Scott of MobileGeeks!
Traveling is a great deal of fun but packing the right gear can be a headache. So, I called for reinforcements.
Nicole is always on the road which means she does everything while she’s traveling. She walked us through her last trip to Chile where she went glamping in the desert. These are her must-haves.
Some wheels to get there
The destination is the Atacama Desert, the driest on the planet. To get to the glamping spot, you need a ride.
For the few minutes drive from San Pedro to Atacama Loft & Glamp, the Audi Q8 is Nicole’s vehicle of choice. The Q8 has a host of smart features, and most importantly…
… it has wireless charging built in!
A phone to take photos with
In this area, there’s barely any reception. But these days, phones are still useful even without cell signal.
Nicole brought along her HTC U12+ for photo-taking purposes.
Working on the go
Since she’s always moving, Nicole is used to working on the go. She brings her Microsoft Surface Book everywhere.
An external battery pack is also a must-have — this means an extra two hours of laptop time without having to plug into an actual electric socket.
Part of her setup is working with a mouse — Nicole shoots and edits, too. Her weapon of choice? The Microsoft Surface Arc.
Now, enough about work!
Adding some background music
A good pair of headphones is always a great idea when traveling, or when you’re horseback riding through the desert like Nicole.
These TaoTronics Bluetooth earphones are her favorite because they have great sound quality despite being pretty affordable.
Taking time to meditate with the scenery
Nicole always has her Fitbit Versa on her and on trips like this, it proves pretty useful.
She uses the Relax function to take time out of her day and enjoy the beautiful desert sights with breathing exercises.

Be one of the first to own it
Ford’s factory-built performance truck is now up for pre-orders at dealerships in the Philippines.
Launched earlier this year at a grand event in Thailand, the Ranger Raptor combines Ford Performance DNA with the Ranger’s tough constitution. It’s thought to be a motocross bike, snowmobile, and an ATV rolled into one macho pickup truck.
