Ford Teases Rally-Ready Mustang Mach-E Ahead of Goodwood
In a move that will surprise absolutely no one, Ford is making a more rugged off-road version of the Mustang Mach-E and teased the vehicle on YouTube. The now well-worn path has been traveled by Porsche, Lamborghini, and countless homebrew mechanics, so it was only a matter of time before we started seeing more mainstream brands getting in on the action.
Ford plans to reveal the new ‘Stang at the 2023 Goodwood Festival of Speed, saying it's bringing “an exciting new member of the Mustang family.” Though the clip only shows flashes of the Mach-E, the EV appears to be riding on O.Z. Rally Racing wheels and beefier tires. It’s got a fancy livery, but that’s likely just for show at Goodwood, where Ford said it would demonstrate the new model’s driving capabilities.
It's unclear if Ford will give the variant different powertrain specs from the already-hot Mach-E GT, but the mystery model was shown alongside the GT and a standard trim in the video. We can safely guess that it’ll get suspension mods to go along with the wheels and tires, and all-wheel drive is all but a given.
We also don’t know if Ford plans to sell the rally-ready Mach-E or if it will remain a show car like the Mach-E 1400. Whatever the case, we don’t have long to wait, as the event is coming up in a few days, and Ford will bring out several new models, including the electric Explorer.
