Ford Motor Company has long been a leader in the automotive space. From utility-oriented pickups and genre-defining pony cars all the way to contemporary electric vehicles, the brand has bolstered its reputation since its conception over 100 years ago, thanks to a dedicated commitment to innovation. Now, they’re preparing to reimagine one of their most prolific models with the electrified Mustang Mach-E.
When the first Mustang was introduced all the way back in 1964, it exemplified a new approach toward automotive culture — something that Ford has emphasized as the inspiration behind the powerful new crossover. The 2020 Mach-E is a far cry from the iconic pony car that we know and love, but its rebellion against its predecessor’s implied design is what makes it so captivating. It looks the part of a modern SUV but boasts a powerful all-wheel/rear-wheel-drive motor system that makes it faster off the line than Porsche’s lauded Macan platform — thanks, in large part, to its 332 horsepower and 417 lb.-ft. of torque. But that’s not all; the Mach-E will also arrive alongside two performance-oriented models — the GT, and GT Performance Edition — to usurp the German manufacturer’s Porsche Macan Turbo and 911 GTS with an estimated 459 horsepower and 612 lb.-ft. of torque. With a 300-mile range, the newly-realized Mustang Mach-E promises to usher in a new era for the famed automotive manufacturer when it’s released in the spring of 2021.
