New 2024 Ford Mustang Mach-E GT Models, Colors, Release Date – We gave the 2024 Ford Mustang Mach-E our Editor’s Choice award because it successfully combines retro and modern design cues into an appealing product that augurs well for the development of electric automobiles. Ford’s decision to rebrand an electric crossover as the Mustang may sound sacrilegious. Still, the company made a good business decision by combining the Mustang name with the famous SUV body. The Mach-E is not only striking to look at from the outside but also boasts a luxurious cabin loaded to the gills with cutting-edge gadgetry. It features plenty of room for cargo, a roomy back seat, and clever storage solutions. Driving the battery-powered Mustang gives the impression of elegant quickness. The fastest model can accelerate to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds (faster than a Mustang Mach 1), and the longest-range models are expected to travel more than 300 miles on a single charge. As a result of all of these factors and more, the 2024 Mustang Mach-E is an exceptional EV.
The winner of our first-ever EV of the Year award, the 2024 Mustang Mach-E, has a significantly higher usable battery capacity for the new model year. This should translate to a more extended actual driving range. Standard features on the California 1 now include a heated steering wheel and front seats, and all-wheel drive is now available. Even the GT model’s roof is now painted black as standard equipment. A white version of the Mach-E, dubbed the Ice White Edition, joins the white Mustang pony car as a limited-edition color option. This new look option is exclusive to the Premium grade and features tri-coat Star White metallic paint, Oxford White accents on the 19-inch wheels, and external emblems. Grabber Blue and Cyber Orange, which were only available on the GT before, are now available on other models.
New 2024 Ford Mustang Mach-E GT Redesign
The first year, the all-electric Ford Mustang SUV made headlines, but now drivers barely notice it. Still, the basic idea behind the design holds up well. Create a four-door electric crossover using the same name and overall design cues as the brand’s most recognized badge. The design as a whole is something we enjoy. The Mach-take E’s on the iconic Mustang taillights are integrated into an upright rear end that pairs well with the car’s sloping front end. The blocked-off front grille is a bold design choice, but we appreciate that Ford isn’t afraid to embrace the EV’s benefits. The concealed door knobs are an elegant extra. An electric vehicle with a phony grille is one of the few things that genuinely annoys us.
Comparatively, the Mach-E occupies less space than a classic Mustang. Despite its reduced length and width, it can still comfortably seat five. Its dimensions are 185.6 inches long and 74.1 inches wide, and it has an extended 117.5-inch wheelbase. It’s the great secret of Mach-E. There is more room for passengers and their belongings because of the longer wheelbase, and the absence of a link between the front and back wheels allows for a level interior. A GT model’s length is 186.7 inches, a slight increase. There is plenty of room for passengers’ heads at the 64-inch height; the California Route 1 and GT models are a hair shorter at 63.5 inches. While the curb weight of the base RWD model is 4,318 pounds, the GT Performance Edition weighs in at a hefty 4,989 pounds.
The Mustang Mach-battery E’s pack is concealed beneath the car’s floor, so the interior can be used for whatever purpose the driver or passengers may require. The Mach-interior E’s share little with a standard Mustang, contrasting the car’s looks. The vertically placed, enormous touchscreen takes center stage on the sleek dashboard and the beautiful digital instrument cluster. You can stow your handbag or other items between the front seats thanks to a floating, flip-up armrest on the center console. Other cool extras are available, such as programmable ambient lighting, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, wireless charging, a panoramic sunroof, and more. To accommodate ice and other filthy items, the front trunk is built of sturdy plastic that can be cleaned and drained. The Mach-E provides 29 cubic feet of storage capacity when the rear seats are in use.
Ford’s new SYNC entertainment system uses machine learning to individualize the ride for each driver; the design now accommodates three user profiles, plus one for a passenger. The Mustang Mach-software E is operated through a 15.5-inch touchscreen display oriented vertically for optimal viewing and operation. Ford will release over-the-air upgrades for the system over time, improving it and adding new features. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a Wi-Fi hotspot in the car, and a Bang & Olufsen sound system are some of the best parts.
The Mach-lightning-fast E’s acceleration results from its direct drive system and rapid power delivery, which allow even the heaviest models to weigh less than 5,000 pounds. The most basic configuration consists of a single electric motor mounted at the back and a fixed-ratio transmission. The AWD system requires an extra electric motor mounted on the front axle. Since the two motors are not mechanically linked, improved AWD performance is possible. The power could be sent to both axles simultaneously in an AWD system rather than being split 50/50. More excellent motors and a larger battery pack mean more potential for fun. It’s as easy as that.
The Premium RWD equipped with the ER battery is the slowest. The GT Performance Edition with AWD and an ER battery can reach 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, but the standard model takes 6.1 seconds. All the other models are in the middle ground between these two extremes. Compared to RWD vehicles powered by the same ER battery, AWD vehicles are 1.3 seconds faster than 60 mph.
As a result of the factors above, the models’ power output can vary widely. Each Select model comes with a 70-kWh battery (the industry standard for driving range), which produces 266 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque in RWD form. When you factor in the AWD system, the torque jumps to 428 lb-ft. The typical battery for California Route 1 is 91 kWh (extended range). In RWD form, the lone electric motor generates 290 horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque. With a second motor mounted up front, output jumps to 346 horsepower and 428 pound-feet of torque. All the aforementioned configurations are available to order with the Premium package, and their power outputs are identical. The ER battery is standard on the GT and GT Performance. Torque is increased from 600 lb-ft to 634 lb-ft in the Performance model. These powerful variants have a 0-60 mph time of 3.8 and 3.5 seconds, respectively.
2024 Ford Mustang Mach-E Release Date and Price
Ford Mach-E prices ranged from $43,895 (for the Select trim) to $48,775 (for the Premium trim). We have seen dealers charge up to $70,000 for the fastest model, even though the MSRP for the California Route 1 was $52,450, and the retail price for the GT was $61,995. As was previously indicated, the Mach-E has a distinct advantage over the Tesla Model Y because of the $7,500 federal tax credit for which it is eligible. Ford CEO Jim Farley only confirmed that the Mach-E would be available in the United States in 2023, even though the release date was teased alongside the global debut of the new vehicle.
