GM’s crosstown rival, Ford Motor Company, has released new details on the new Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally, a motorsport-inspired variant of the all-electric crossover designed to tackle a gravel stage just as easily as tarmac. Highlights include 480 horsepower, unique suspension, underbody protection, and unique styling. Although the Mustang Mach-E is rivaled by the Chevy Blazer EV, the Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally variant currently has no direct rival from the GM camp.
Outside, the Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally features twin racing stripes, which complement a variety of bright paint options, including Grabber Blue, Shadow Black, Eruption Green, and Grabber Yellow. Star White and Glacier Gray are offered for a bit more outlay. Contrasting accents were added to the upper and lower body moldings, and there’s a unique front splitter, a black roof, and a unique fascia with built-in rally-inspired fog lights and a recovery point. Underbody shielding was applied to the front and rear motors, and there is a protective film along the flanks that wards away rock chips. A rear spoiler inspired by the Focus RS finishes it off.
Motivation comes from a two-motor powertrain producing a total of 480 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. Electrons are sourced from a lithium-ion battery pack with 91 kWh of usable capacity, capable of recharging from 10 percent to 80 percent in roughly 36 and a half minutes via a DC quick-charge source. Range-per-charge is set at 250 miles.
The suspension spec includes a 20 mm (roughly 0.8-inch) lift, as well as a unique tune for the spring and MagneRide shocks. Braking is provided by 385 mm (15.15-inch) front rotors and red-painted Brembo calipers, which sit under 19-inch gloss white rally-style wheels wrapped in 235/55 Michelin CrossClimate2 tires. There’s also a RallySport Drive Mode that alters vehicle settings for loose-surface driving.
Further unique touches are found inside, such as gloss white accents on the dash, steering wheel, and contrast stitching on the doors.
Pricing for the Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally starts around $65,000, with availability opening up early next year.
