However, the stand also hosts important European debuts for the revamped Edge large SUV and the Ka+ Active version of the mini-crossover.
First seen at the Detroit show in January, the Mustang Bullitt will go into production in June. It is the third such model, following versions launched in 2001 and 2008, and celebrates the 50th anniversary of the car’s starring role in the film.
The Bullitt’s 5.0-litre V8 engine will be tuned to produce an anticipated 464hp, 14 horses more than the current most potent model, the GT. It also includes rev-matching technology to smooth out gear changes.
Buyers of the Bullitt will be able to choose liveries connected to the film, either Shadow Black or a Dark Highland Green exterior colour. Ford is not currently saying how many will be made to UK specification or what they will cost.
Technology updates for Edge large SUV
The revamped Edge is described as Ford’s most technically advanced SUV yet. Its drive assistance technologies, in particular, are updated to make the most of current camera and sensor advances. The adaptive cruise control includes a system to keep the car centred in its lane, while post-collision braking and an evasive steering aid also feature.
When the latest Edge goes on sale it will be available with a new 238hp bi-turbo diesel engine and equally new eight-speed auto transmission.
New Ka+ Active joins the range
The KA+ Active capitalises on a growing trend for crossover-styled city cars, with more muscular body styling, a ride height raised by 23mm and bespoke chassis settings.
On its arrival in showrooms in the summer of 2018, the Ka+ Active will be offered with an extensive standard specification. Prices will start from £10,795 and for the first time powertrain choices will include a diesel, a 95hp 1.5-litre unit.
