Welcome!!!! Please show pictures when you get a chance. What options does it have? Do you mind if I ask what you paid for it? It might be useful for someone following this thread to get an idea of prices.

The 2016 gear ratios are, all :1, 1st, 3.657, 2nd, 2.430. 3rd, 1,686, 4th, 1,315, 5th 1.00, 6th 0.651
The 2018 gear ratios are, all :1, 1st 3.24, 2nd, 2.10, 3rd, 1.42, 4th 1.00, 5th, 0.81, 6th, 0.62. Essentially a 4 Spd transmission, with two overdrives. Fuel mileage first, performance.....

No Pony car with a V8 will ever get that light again because of government safety regulations & today's nvh design standards. Heavy cars are here to stay.

There is a lot of truth in that statement unfortunately but it could be done. The car can get a bit smaller, some lighter weight materials can be utilized and once the car gets a little lighter some weight can be taken out of things like chassis/brake/wheel assemblies. Do-able but it would be an expensive re-design and probably not at all what Ford is thinking. Mustangs don't sell in big enough numbers to probably justify the cost.

Friend of mine, an SRT engineer told me last year: "it's way easier for us to just tell the engine guys we need another 100 horsepower". Challengers and Chargers are pig heavy.

Thank you for starting this thread. It will be interesting to see how the market goes as the 2020s start getting to dealers. By the way, in light of what people experience with the MT-82, I haven't found it to be problematic in normal street driving. Yes, there was a run of them in 2018 that had forks with bending with generally (although not always) aggressive shifting when people were jamming on them hard. There was a material change near the end of the 2018 run which means the 2019s should generally be better. I have seen one instance of where someone had shift for problems in their new one and refused delivery.


Keep us posted what you find, tonykart22, as you see more. I do think 2020 could be your year of acquisition, unless you try for that C8 Corvette first

Good to know regarding the trans, thanks Tony. I certainly didn't find yours any trouble when I drove it.

I certainly will. At the moment unless something I cannot refuse comes up, I intend to get one in mid 2021 when my wifes car is paid off (early ).

I love the C8, but it's what the wife wants, so will get one for her down the road.

Does anyone know how to identify the specs of a Bullitt without the new window sticker?

Electronics package - Comes with Satnav, also door mirrors will have the BLIS light instead of the little blind spot mirror.
Magnaride - ??
Recaro's - Pretty easy to spot.

Electronics package also has a "B&O" logo and different speaker grille on the middle of the dash, as well as a subwoofer in the trunk on the right hand side.

Stealership by the house still has the one I inquired about when they got it new and wanted 10k over sticker. Told me there was no way you would ever buy a Bullitt for under sticker as it was so special. Told them there was no way I was paying over sticker. Walked out.

Hope they lose a bunch of money and choke on it.

Can get a better, more track focused, Camaro SS 1le for about 10k less anyway.

68k miles. 5.0 shifter, drop in K&N, 17x8 black bullitts, DHG pony in grille

Good to know, thanks. I imagine if I buy used I'll end up with a fully loaded one anyway.

Yeah my experience so far of Ford stealerships is a bit elitist, though I know not all are like that.

I bought mine at the end of May. Sticker price was $51,380, paid $46,300 for it. I had been tracking prices on Edmunds for dealers within 200 miles of me for about 10 months. The one I bought had been in the lot for 100 days and was the only one they had without Recaro seats but had all the other options that I wanted. And it was at the dealership closest to me. You can get one for a fair price if you’re willing to expand your search.

A 2019 Ferrari 488 is 3360 lbs, the Mustang will probably never get under 3400 again unless it seriously gets smaller. Iím not sure I really want it to get smaller though, Iím pretty happy with the front passenger space and the trunk space. Itís not a sports car, itís really more of a grand touring car.

Agreed, and all the added electronics, etc. the days of the Fox body 3000 lb Mustangs are long gone.

Well dammit the word Mustang is defined as small.
https://www.dictionary.com/browse/mustang

Seriously though, the F-150 lost 700 pounds when they went to aluminum body so there's a precedent within Ford for significant weight reduction. That would be a cheap revision R&D-wise.

Cheapest nationwide is still about $43k. Interestingly between $43-$45k the mileages vary wildly. Some have less than 1000 miles on them, others about 4-5000!

Highest mileage one listed so far has 12,367 miles (For $46,995, get real), followed by just under 10,000 miles for $43,995.

I also found this one that has already been modified. Stripes, start button, gear knob and carbon inserts on the center console.

Is that the standard front licence plate mounting?

Basically new (814 miles) with options 1&2:

https://www.cars.com/vehicledetail/d...6737/overview/

Looks to be fully optioned, 4k miles for $47k

https://www.cars.com/vehicledetail/d...7884/overview/

But then this one is also fully loaded, with 3800 miles for $44k. (K2202)

https://www.cars.com/vehicledetail/d...9009/overview/

Finally, the highest mileage I've seen so far (12,367) for $47 grand....I think not!
