The Ford Mustang– The heart of American Muscle. A classic american piece of artwork. For 55 years, the Mustang has dominated muscle cars around the world. With new, redesigned features, the Mustang is in close competition with its American counterparts: the Chevy Camaro and the Dodge Charger. Once seen as a pure muscle car, looking like a mean bully on the road, the Mustang now has a new meaning. 


A new Mustang is being produced by Ford. The Mustang Mach-E. This brand new revolutionized vehicle is completely electric, and an SUV. That’s right, the Mustang is now an SUV. Ford has decided to move away from its origins and towards two totally new concepts, electricity as opposed to gasoline, and an SUV as opposed to the coupe. 

With five models being made, the Mach-E is projected to release in 2021. In order from the lower performing to higher performing models, we have: Select, Premium, California Route 1, First Edition, and GT. The prices are $44,995, $51,700, $53,500, $61,000, $61,600 respectively. The Select model will be the slowest while the GT model will be the fastest with a goal of 0-60mph time in 3 seconds. 

With an estimated 459 horsepower and 612 lb.-ft. of torque, the Mustang will have a standard 75.7 kWh battery or extended-range 98.8 kWh battery. It also comes with a lot of new technology, featuring a vertical 15.5-inch center screen in addition to a 10.2-inch information cluster in front of the driver, customizable ambient interior lighting, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, wireless charging, a panoramic sunroof, and more. The front trunk is made of durable plastics that can be rinsed and then drained, which provides an advantage for storing ice and other messy things. The Mach-E has 29 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats, which can expand up to 60 with the back seats folded.

There are a lot of brand new things coming to the car industry, and the Mustang Mach-E will be taking it by storm. A big step from its muscle car counterpart, this new Mustang may become the newest, hottest, and most exciting thing on the market to come.
