Those interested in purchasing the 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E will have some options to sort through. First, you’ll have four trims to choose from: Select, Premium, California Route 1, and GT. The Select and Premium are sold with either rear- or all-wheel drive, but the California Route 1 and GT are exclusively AWD. The RWD Mach-E comes with a single electric motor, whereas those with AWD get two.
The Select with RWD makes 266 horsepower and 317 lb.-ft. of torque; with AWD, it produces the same hp and 428 lb.-ft. of torque. The California Route 1 whisks 346 hp and 428 lb.-ft. of torque. The Premium with the standard-range battery (more on batteries below) has the same RWD and AWD output as the Select, but with the extended-range battery and RWD, it makes 290 hp and 317 lb.-ft. of torque. The Premium with AWD and the extended-range battery churns out 346 hp and 428 lb.-ft. of torque. Finally, the GT puts out a stirring 480 hp and 600 lb.-ft. of torque, but with the Performance Edition Package, the torque increases by 34 lb.-ft.
Depending on the battery and drivetrain, the Mustang Mach-E’s range varies across its configurations. The Select (standard range only) supplies an EPA-estimated 247 miles of range, although that dips to 224 with AWD. The California Route 1 is only sold with the extended range battery, returning 314 miles per charge. The Premium with the standard-range battery has the same RWD and AWD range as the Select, but with the extended-range battery and RWD, it can go up to 306 miles before needing to be plugged in again. That number drops to 290 miles with AWD. The extended-range GT nets 270 miles of range, and if it’s ordered with the Performance Edition Package, that range decreases by 10 miles. All trims come with the Ford Mobile Power Cord, which supports 115kW DC fast charging and has portable 120- or 240-volt charging cables.
The Select trim starts the lineup on a high note with nice features such as wiper-activated LED headlights, LED taillights, heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, a windshield wiper de-icer, rain-sensing wipers, a drainable frunk (front trunk), proximity entry (Intelligent Access), and Phone as a Key technology. It also has push-button start, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink, a 10.2-inch digital gauge cluster, front-door scuff plates, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, synthetic-leather seating materials, a drive-mode selector with three experience settings (Unbridled, Engage, and Whisper), wireless phone charging, a 12-volt power outlet, and four USB ports (one Type-A and one Type-C in each row). This trim also gets the base version of Ford’s SYNC 4A infotainment system with a 15.5-inch tablet-like touchscreen, navigation, SiriusXM satellite radio, Bluetooth, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a six-speaker sound system.
The Premium rises higher with signature LED headlights, power-folding side mirrors, a power liftgate, a panoramic glass roof, multi-color ambient interior lighting, position memory for the driver’s seat and side mirrors, a power-adjustable front passenger’s seat, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a 10-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system with a subwoofer, and a cargo area cover. The California Route 1 jumps to the long-range battery and gets power-folding exterior mirrors, aerodynamic black wheel covers, black wheel-lip molding, and black side cladding. At the top of the trim range, the GT receives the contents of the Premium, along with special front-row sport seats and an additional drive mode called Unbridled Extend. The GT also qualifies for the Performance Edition Package, which will issue gloss-black 20-inch wheels, upgraded front sport seats with fixed-position head restraints, an aluminum-trimmed instrument panel, and the MagneRide damping system.
The Ford Co-Pilot360 2.0 system of active safety features is installed on all trims, adding automatic high beams, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, a lane keeping system (which includes lane keeping alert, lane keeping assist, and driver attention alert), pre-collision assist (forward collision warning) with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, post-collision braking, rear parking sensors, and reverse automatic braking. The more advanced Ford Co-Pilot360 Assist 2.0 suite is provided as well, bundling adaptive cruise control, lane centering assist, speed sign recognition, and evasive steering assist. A surround-view camera and Ford’s BlueCruise 1.2 hands-free driving system (which is compatible with over 130,000 miles of prequalified sections of divided North American highways) are optional for the Select but standard in the remaining trims.
The Premium with the extended-range battery can be ordered with the Premium Black Accents Exterior Package, which delivers exactly what the package states: black exterior accents. The GT is eligible for the Performance Edition Package, which supplies gloss-black 20-inch wheels, enhanced front sport seats with fixed-position head restraints, an aluminum-trimmed instrument panel, and the MagneRide damping system. If the Performance Edition Package is ordered with the GT, it becomes eligible for the new Mustang Nite Pony Package (gloss-black 20-inch wheels and black GT badges). That package is also available for the extended-range Premium, where, it omits the GT badge and gets 19-inch wheels.
