$38,450 new 2019!

Has the electronics package only, but by far the cheapest new Bullitt so far. Maybe the number (K7666) has scared people off!

I wonder how much trouble it would have been for Ford to skip that number. Like the 13th floor on a hi rise.
Will definitely sit for awhile even at that price and someday end up trashed on a used lot with its #plate pried off.

Not 'zactly in high demand, are they? I dunno why, really. A combination of factors? Money, of course, then the crowded roads of today, changing social norms, etc. Agreed..should have just skipped that number.

Kida wish we could get the honest answers from former owners on the why of all the used ones out there.

pwd72s....

I keep asking myself the same question......what happened to sales of the 2019 BULLITT????

Honestly.....I think it's competition. There are so many options out there it at times makes my head hurt.

Dodge Challengers have really flooded the market with excitement and great ads even though it's the same old.....same old body style. FORD does pickup trucks anymore and the Mustang is so-so......

There's a bunch of "FOREIGN" options out there.

The BULLITT is a great car but it's not a dream car......like a new GT500 or a new 2020 Corvette.

I think people bought the BULLITT on "HYPE" and after a few big monthly payments decided that the bang for the buck wasn't there.

And last.....our 2009 BULLITTS cost around $33K....a new 2019 is over $50K. My new 2010 GT500 was $49995 MSRP....a loaded 2020 GT500 will be over $100K......have salaries increased that much in 10 years?

We'll see how this turns out....it may not be pretty!

BTW......is it me or am I missing excitement from 2019 owners on this site?

It's not just the Bullitt -- the Mustang lineup as a whole is losing market share to the Challenger, despite the "same old body style." In fact the Challenger actually outsold the Mustang in the 3rd quarter 2019. There are many buyers in the 'pony car' market who do not like the current Mustang body style. The Camaro is losing market share at an even faster rate, due in part to its less than aesthetic body style. Here is a link to brief article that summarizes 2019 'pony car' sales:

Purchasing to 50-yr Bullitt edition is a passion choice - not financial. This mustang version is significantly more refined than my 2017 GT trade-in. Enjoy the ride in a limited edition icon.

19 Owner here. I took advantage of the used Bullitt market to buy mine. I watched a few smart dealers start marking down the new 2019s (there are alot of them out there still) but could not wait for them to get to my price. I went from a 07 GT500 daily with 113k to the 19 Bullitt. If I had a few thousand more, I would have bought a 2014 GT500 over a new Bullitt. As it is, the Bullitt gave me a unique car at a price I could afford. So far I really like the car. Sure there are other cars out there, but I love Mustangs.

They are hooting and hollering about their excitement on Facebook groups! In the 10 years since the S197 was released (and 18 since the SN-95), the forum platform seems to have taken a back seat to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.


That all being said, the 2019 owners who post here seem just as excited to me as any Bullitt owner regardless of the model year. Maybe they are out driving their cars more

I would challenge the "many" in the observation about people not liking the 6th generation body style - go look on the Mustang6g.com forum to see how much traffic it gets (it's actually quite the contrast to the traffic here, even though it's a forum platform). Also, that same article notes the Mustang is the sales leader for this calendar year, but that this market is shrinking in total. To me that explains why the first EV "Mustang" (I know, it's not a 2-door) is an SUV/CUV body style. There's more demand there.



Also, I think $47,000 - $51,000 Bullitts in this market are at the top edge of affordability, and as we are seeing now with these prices, it's getting into a range that will be more appealing. For me, I am glad we got another Bullitt, even though it is the most expensive new car I ever bought in my life. Had I not been wanting to get one out of the gate, I would have more easily enjoyed these prices.

2019 Bullitt

I don't know why there are not more owners on here talking about them, I for one did order one, but after thinking about the price $56 Thousand +. I cancelled the order, because my 2015 50th Edition is paid of. Then one day I went to get my oil changed, and the Bullitt I ordered was still on the showroom floor for $51 Thousand. I asked the salesman is that the right price? He said yes, and told me for some reason Mgr. was marking them down. that was the end of Oct 2018. Went home, talked to the wife, and she said go ahead if you want it. I went back next week talked to the Salesman I ordered it from, because I wanted to give him the business, we talked, and we settled on $49 Thousand. I love the car, and I think it's the best Mustang I've ever owned, and I've had several. This one is totally loaded.....

Drive it like you stole it..

I agree that some people probably bought the Bullitt on hype, but I think that most likely the main reason used examples are coming up is the fact they are manual, and drivers find they are more work than they want. The other option is a number of the examples coming up are very high mileag for their age, so they are likely enthusiasts who wanted to try the car, enjoy it, got what they wanted and now want something new, like a GT500 for example.
And yes, I'm sure there are others who bought it under the hype, and then got snowed under monthly payments.

I guess that could be said for any car though? The Bullitt is no more expensive than a similarly optioned GT. I think the base GT is now in the low 40's which to me is a lot of money.

While I understand that the S197 (pre facelift) looks more like a 60's Mustang, I actually love the S550 and think it is the best looking Mustang ever made.
