The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Will Be More Powerful Than Originally Advertised
Ford has opened the order books for the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E all-electric crossover. If you were waiting for another handout before pulling the trigger, the Mach-E now makes up to 14 more horsepower than originally promised.
When the Mach-E was officially announced late last year, nobody was really questioning its power figures. But, Ford claims, development and testing between the announcement and today’s opening of the order books meant the engineers were able to squeeze a little more juice out of the powertrain.
The standard-range Mach-E gets 11 more horsepower for both the rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive model, and both versions get a boost of 11 lb-ft of torque. The extended-range model gets an 8 HP and 11 lb-ft boost. The biggest changes come to the extended-range all-wheel drive, which is now up 14 HP and, again, 11 lb-ft of torque from previous estimates. Final numbers for the top-trim GT performance model have yet to be announced, and it’s the only trim that is still reservation-only until later this year.
Here are the new official power figures for the Mach-E, according to Ford:
There are no updates on range estimates. The extended-range, rear-wheel drive Mach-E, which is expected to be the most frugal, has reportedly targeted a 300-mile range, while the standard-range model is expected to be around 230 miles, though the EPA has yet to release any official estimates.
