At the North American international auto show. No Shelby GT500 but the original Bullitt driven by Steve McQueen and the new Bullitt are here.

I was lucky to get selected for the Detroit News Readers Choice vote and got in during industry preview. Nowhere near as crowdedClick image for larger version

That Bullit green is awesome! That's going to be a hit! S550 looks good with that color!

JimC. Dies it have Bullit wheels on the S550?

In the picture you can see it has black "bullitt" style. Not exactly like the torque thrust on the 1968.

After the voting I went back inside to check out things I didn't have time for earlier. With the smaller lines I had to chance to get a Bullitt poster and appear in the Bullitt reveal commercial. They had four stations for the process, one of them being a Bullitt so had a chance to check it out closer and sit in it.

Fielding opinions!

How many wouldn't mind a 3.2L inline 6 Twin Turbo Ecoboost engine for the 2019 GT500? Reminiscent of of the Toyota Super! The online 6 configuration with Dual cams and turbocharged is much more powerful than a V8! This is why diesel trucks use the same configuration!

With the inline 6 configuration, you have a Rev limit up to 8000rpm! That's a lot of air to pump which equates to tons of HP!! Aluminum block and head can save on weight!

So, a straight 6 makes more power with a v8 huh? Even with a smaller displacement.

Yeah? The inline 6 design is the absolute strongest configuration you can have! 8000rpm+ rev limit and tons of TQ!

Hey Voltwings! The supra:s often revved to 9000rpm!

The main advantage to a straight six cylinder engine configuration is that it is very easy to balance.
So yes, you can rev them pretty high.
Unfortunately, most of the modern-day American automobiles aren't designed to accept a relatively long engine. A car like the Viper, with it's long hood, would be a good candidate for a straight six.

That's why I said a 3.2L! That will fit! Could go to 3.0L if need be!

That's why the Dodge Ram makes so much power and runs 10's, and trucks are heavy! Sure their diesel, but their inline 6!

I don't think that it will happen because Ford likes to use engines that can be placed in many different platforms, both cars and trucks.

They could put it into a F250 or F350!

Only a highly modified Cummins will run a ten.
They do make good power though. There are plenty of 600-700 hp street trucks around here!

Straight 6 makes sense for a diesel because it's easier to design an exhaust manifold for a large, single turbo application. A straight 6 was a great performance option 20 years ago, but they're way too big and way too heavy to compete any more.

Most of those trucks are sold with diesel engines.
I think that Ford is putting a 3.5 litre Ecoboost diesel in the F150 this year. We'll see how that works out...

OK! That's why I said aluminum block and head!

But I'm sure its way to far into left field for Ford to consider it!

I got you Straybullit;!

Hey Straybullit! Wouldn't it be mind blowing if Ford was innovative enough to put a diesel engine into the GT500? LOL!..
An Ecoboost diesel engine!!

That would be awesome. I just hope to double the rear figures with the Cummins I plan on getting. It’s a perfect drag set up in terms of the body configuration.

It’s a stouter version of a MB Deisel.
