Ford Mustang Mach-E More Powerful Than Previously Thought

Leaked / Comments

Who's complaining? No one.

The Ford Mustang Mach-E is a huge deal for the automaker. As its first-ever mass-produced all-electric vehicle, expectations are understandably high. Having the "Mustang" name also raises the stakes. Aside from how it drives, the Mustang Mach-E will also be judged by its power output. Previously, Ford released some early horsepower and torque figures and they were impressive, but now new information has come to light claiming the Mach-E is more powerful than even Ford thought.

The crew over at Mach-E Forum managed to get ahold of an updated set of specifications for the SUV and the information is interesting, to say the least. "We bring exciting news," the forum admin writes. "The 2021 Mach-E specs on Ford's dealer training site (obtained from our dealer source) are now showing an increase in horsepower, torque, and kW output specs for all Mach-E trims and models!"

Below is a comparison between the old specs and the updated ones:

RWD Standard Range Mach-E:

266 hp / 317 lb-ft / 198 kW

(+11 hp, +11 lb-ft, +8 kW from original specs)

RWD Extended Range Mach-E:

290 hp / 317 lb-ft / 216 kW

(+8 hp, +11 lb-ft, +6 kW from original specs)

AWD Standard Range Mach-E:

266 hp / 428 lb-ft / 198 kW

(+11 hp, +11 lb-ft, +8 kW from original specs)

AWD Extended Range Mach-E:

346 hp / 428 lb-ft / 258 kW

(+14 hp, +11 lb-ft, +10 kW from original specs)

Clearly, these increases aren't dramatically more, but we don't think anyone will complain. Ford previously said it'll announce all final specs closer to the Mustang Mach-E's launch, initially planned for next spring, though that could potentially change given the current circumstances in the world.

Prices will begin at $43,895 for the Select trim and will top off at $60,500 for the GT. All First Edition examples, priced at $59,900 a pop, are sold out. Ford also released data last month regarding how American buyers are speccing their Mach-Es. Rapid Red Metallic has been the most popular color, followed by Infiniti Blue Metallic. Western state buyers have overwhelmingly been opting for the extended-range battery and rear-wheel-drive setup, while all-wheel drive is more popular with buyers in the northeastern states.

Hopefully, Ford will announce final output figures soon since the above training site info is now out in the open. Will more power lure more buyers? Probably not, but it'll certainly please those who've already placed their $500 reservation and subsequent order.
