Yes! Ford Mustang Mach 1 Will Officially Return

Leaked / Comments

Leaked documents spill the beans.

Sometime within the next few years, the Ford Mustang will receive a redesign. The exact date remains unknown and it could potentially be pushed back due to the coronavirus outbreak. It wouldn't be the only upcoming new model to suffer a delay. But in the meantime, Ford is pressing ahead with the current and highly successful sixth-generation Mustang with yet another new variant planned, only its name won't be so new.

According to leaked dealer VIN decoder guides uncovered by Mach-E Club, the Ford Mustang Mach 1 will debut in 2021. The documents - which confirm a rumor we heard late last year - clearly show a Mach 1 trim level for next year, though details such as drivetrain, price, and features weren't listed. However, it's certainly possible to speculate that information.

There's a relatively good chance the Mach 1's return will also serve as a replacement for the limited-production Ford Mustang Bullitt, which was built to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the classic movie "Bullitt", starring the late Steve McQueen.

Basically, the Bullitt Edition is a Mustang GT with 20 more horsepower - a total of 480 hp - an intake manifold from the Mustang Shelby GT350, and exterior tweaks such as the removal of the Mustang emblem. Only two exterior colors are offered. Chances are, the Mustang Bullitt will be retired after the 2020 model year in order to keep it special and, more than likely, the licensing deal Ford struck with Warner Brothers studio, which still owns the rights to the Bullitt name, expires. Rather than renewing it, Ford could easily just utilize a nameplate it already owns outright.

Also, this wouldn't be the first time the Mach 1 replaced the Bullitt edition. The 2001 Mustang Bullitt was retired in 2003 when the also limited-edition Mach 1 debuted. However, this Mach 1 was even more powerful than that Bullitt thanks to its V8 taken from the SVT Cobra. Could the 2021 Mustang Mach 1 offer more than 480 ponies? We wouldn't be in the least bit surprised if it did.
