    Ford Hikes the 2020 Mustang Bullitt's Price by $1215
    Other Mustangs see only a $250 increase in base price.

    Ford is hiking the price of the 10Best Cars–winning Mustang Bullitt for 2020, adding $1215 to the base price. A Ford representative confirmed the Bullitt's price hike to Cars Direct, and a Ford spokesperson told C/D there will be an additional across-the-board $250 price increase to all Mustang models.

    Year-over-year price increases are common in the automotive industry but are usually minor—like the one for the rest of the Mustang lineup—or accompany a significant revision to standard equipment. Ford is making no additional features standard on the 2020 Bullitt; the spokesperson said the price increase is "due to high demand" for the limited-production model.

    We're big fans of the Bullitt Mustang and the Steve McQueen movie it's named for. Ford has endowed the Bullitt with an extra 20 horsepower over the standard Mustang GT as well as a host of standard performance-enhancing features such as a 3.73 Torsen limited-slip rear differential, red-painted Brembo brake calipers, and a performance exhaust.

    I'd expect a Premium GT to go up almost the same. The EcoBoost went up $700-800.

    I just priced out online a new GT vert with all the options I would want and it was 58K. I will stick to my old 2015. Besides, once the warranty is out, I can start playing with it! This is my original window sticker. F6B818CD-F4B4-4F56-884D-8C854BCA9AC8.jpeg

    I just priced out a 2015 GT and it was 48K. I'll just stick to my old 2003 Mach1 it was 29k.... Can do a lot with that 19K.

    It could be.......we Canadians are a threat to national security it seems. Although we have been known to hurl back bacon at near supersonic speeds so perhaps its justified. :)

    Correct.
    Just wait, game consoles are being hit with the next round of China tariffs: 25%. Good times.

    Not to get off topic - but, maybe it will bring the gaming zombies back into reality where they can be people like the rest of us, you know like socially interact and contribute to society, not a bad thing....

    Hard to believe that video gaming is now considered a world wide health issue... as is people claiming to be “burn outs” to excuse themselves from job related stress....

    What’s the difference between relaxing by watching a two-hour movie vs playing a video game for two hours to relax? The idea that if you play video games you’re a burnout, don’t live in reality, or don’t contribute to society is beyond asinine. The same nonsense can be said about people working on their car for 2-3 hours as a hobby or for their own enjoyment; it’s not contributing anything to society - the good news being that not every hobby has to “contribute” or do worldwide good, as long as it’s not consuming your life.

    It's no different than you at work. You're in an office working on a PC for 8+ hours, only they are doing a game instead of spreadsheets. To think they are not getting out of the house just shows how out of touch YOU are with modern culture. It's such a large industry that some cities are making small stadiums for gaming tournaments. It's a huge market.

    The fact you think that being "burnt out" is an excuse also shows how little you really know about how humans work or basic mental health. Let me guess you think that Shellshock/post-traumatic stress are also excuses for people to just not have to spend more time in battle. Such pussies.

    Think game consoles will be an issue?
    Try:
    Phones
    All network gear
    All telco gear
    Computers
    The electronics in your cars
    An Apple product.

    There is a LOT of electronics in general that are from China. That's why anyone oblivious enough to say things like "just stop buying crap from China" just proves to me just how little they actually know about the subject. I grantee you're surrounded by products from China right now.

    Others will just say "well now it will be made in America". Sure, maybe it will be, but it will still increase to price to make it. Assume for a moment the product costs $100 normally, and the tariff will add 25% to it. I grantee that companies will not eat all that cost and pass much to the end user. So instead of $125 it will only cost you $120. So a US company decides they can make it. But being in the US labor costs will be higher so they can't do it for under $105. Okay, you think great I'll still save $15. Except you can grantee that if the US company knows that the Chinese connected vendor can't do it for less than $120, they will price theirs at $118. Man. That really helped out the average Joe a lot...

    So now you're still stuck paying $18 more than you used to, and despite how people like to brag, American quality is not in any way the "best " quality. Key example is look at car build quality, American has been playing catch-up for decades. So it may end up still being better for you to spend the extra $2 to get the other vendor.

    Actually that's why I bought a 2019 (GT, not Bullitt). Ford said it would "be standard on 91 percent of Ford vehicles in North America by 2020" (https://media.ford.com/content/fordmedia/fna/us/en/news/2018/03/15/ford-co-pilot360.html). So I figured the 2020 Mustang would include it, and I very much didn't want any of the driver override stuff. Or have to pay for it.

    I think given it's only two year run, it makes sense that there are no changes, and I wouldn't want them different...If you look at the 2020 Mustang Order Guide, it looks like the Safe and Smart is an option, not standard...

    Simple supply and demand, they are getting it because they can. I would rather see Ford reap the benefits of their work and possibly plow it back in to R&D, than a greedy dealer with ridiculous ADM. For those of us with earlier purchases, it helps keep our resale value up to.:clap:
