    All Electric Mach-E SUV is Officially in the "Mustang Family"

    1573729589956.jpg

    DEARBORN, Mich., Nov. 14, 2019 – Ford’s all-new, all-electric SUV will don the iconic pony badge and the name Mustang Mach-E when reservations for the vehicle open after it is revealed this Sunday.

    The all-electric Mustang Mach-E will make its debut Nov. 17 at an event in Los Angeles that will be streamed on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Autohome (China). Special guest, actor Idris Elba, will help introduce the latest addition to the Mustang family. Immediately following the broadcast – which ends at approximately 6:30 p.m. PST (9:30 p.m. EST) – reservations will open for the Mustang Mach-E at Ford.com.


    Customers can reserve their spot in line for the Mustang Mach-E by making a $500 refundable reservation deposit.1 Timing will be critical, especially for a limited First Edition, details of which will be announced as part of the Nov. 17 event.

    Customers in the U.S. and Europe who wish to reserve a vehicle can select their desired specification of the Mustang Mach-E, create a Ford account, select their preferred Ford dealer, and enter their credit/debit card details and address.

    Customers who reserve a vehicle will be able to finalize their configuration next year when the ordering window opens.

    Reservation timing for China will be announced at a later date.

    Leave it to Ford to make a vehicle that looks nothing like a mustang and then call it part of the mustang family.

    My gripe has nothing to do with electric, it's the fact it's some small SUV that has 1% of the features from a real Mustang.

    They really couldn't come up with a better name than Mustang Mach-E? Why not throw the word GT500 in there too

    He said guilt free performance...lol. I have plenty of guilt free performance in my gas hogging 5.0 stroker. I never checked MPG because I don't care...I just love smashing the loud pedal and accelerating hard regardless of what is coming out the other end.

    Something tells me that if Ford is willing to put the Mustang moniker on a SUV, the thing is probably going to be competitive with other "high performance" SUVs. People complained at first when Porsche even started making a SUV and now their SUVs are highly respected for performance. I'll have to wait until after the reveal before I make my mind up about it.

    i actually don't mind the SUV aspect. the lambo urus is SICK. its the patronizing ecobullshit that bothers me. i don't even have an issue with an electric car. its when the selling point is "guilt free" that I roll my eyes so hard it can probably be heard from orbit.

    What the...! Why in the hell would they slap the Mustang logo on an SUV. Not to mention adding "Mach" as well. For 54 years the Mustang has been one thing...a pony car. Now apparently Ford has decided to broaden the Mustang line. Every time I hear nonsense like this it makes me happy that I jumped ship. Do they plan on a Shelby version of this SUV? Maybe a Mustang Mach-E Shelby 500?! :rolleyes:

    Ford's step one to killing the mustang as a car so they can fully implement the no more cars direction the company is trying to accomplish

    You'd be surprised on how strong the market will be on this car.

    I would think the Mach-E name would be a better fit for the upcoming hybrid Mustang.

    Excited to see what it looks like for an SUV. The performance sounds promising.

    Not sure what they used the Mustang name though.

    Barf.

    Porsche didn't call their SUV the "911 Mach-X Suv" they came up with a new name.

    The name cayenne is close enough to carerra to tie the storied legacy without shitting on it.

    I think this vehicle would be better served with its own unique name. You lose some style and bravado when you don’t make your own mark but instead borrow from your older brother.

    It would be wiered if the ford raptor was called the ford raptor-lightning or if the Chevy SSR was called the Chevy Corvette SSR

    I'm done. I mean, I have waved the Ford banner my entire disposable income life. I can't support this bullshit any longer. I'm sorry, and it doesn't matter since I refuse to purchase any new vehicle on the market. However this is the biggest and hardest of all the slaps in the face over the last few decades.

    *** Pussy ass 302 blocks that split if you sneeze on them. You can fall backwards over a 4 bolt main 350

    *** Proving a 351 can fit in the SN95 platform but deciding 'nah'

    *** The 2V 4.6. Especially the NPI but even the PI engine was a joke compared to what the F body's were packing. To make it worse? Explorers and Mountaineers got aluminum blocks.

    *** Proving the 5.4 can fit in the New Edge platform, deciding 'Nah'

    *** The 3V 4.6. What a waste of R&D to end up with a less powerful engine than the the 4V 4.6 made 9 years before it.

    *** The coyote. Finally, a real performance engine! **** me are they expensive though. It's on par with what GM offers when stock, but it cannot compete in HP per dollar once you mod it.

    *** Casting an aluminum 5.4/5.8 block. Then only using it in one low volume vehicle. There would be no appeal to an all aluminum, NA 4V 351?? Apparently not says Ford.

    *** The Vodoo engine. Ooohohh. Except they seem to use oil like a two stroke.

    *** The 8 years it took to release the 2020 GT500, apparently whittled from unobtainium. Might be a world class performer, I get it. But there is nothing exotic about the engine that couldn't have gotten this car on the road years ago.

    But this to me, screams cheap. Lets milk the only thing we got going for us!! People buy Mustang because it's a Mustang!! Let's just call our SUVs Mustang!! Great idea Johnson, here is a $100,000 bonus.

    **** me this pisses me off so much. I don't even know why. Most my car parts these days come from the junkyard anyway. I swear I'm building an LS. It's so goddamn cheap and ive always wanted to. This my have broke me.

    **** you Ford. I won't wear any of your shirts I got from Walmart anymore

    I can't get behind them calling it a Mustang.

    Why didn't they just call it a Mach E and leave it at that?

    That was the original intent. The decision to call it a Mustang Mach E just came within the last week.

    Can we somehow vote you into the CEO position of Ford?

    I own like 25 shares so I probably have some say in the matter.

    This is an effort to cash in on the Mustang name, for people who’ve never owned one. It may achieve some success, but serves to attract new clients at the expense of pissing off the Mustang owners. What’s next, a Focus RS minivan?

    Any chance they are going to slap a cobra emblem on it somewhere?
