Ford Mustang Mach-E (US) review

Published: 28 May 2024


What should I be paying?

At the low end, the Mustang Mach-E starts at $39,995 with the standard range battery and rear-wheel drive. Options for the base Select trim include upgrading to the extended battery pack and nabbing an extra motor for all-wheel drive, and adding both brings the price up to $46,995.

The Premium trim brings in standard and extended RWD and the same for AWD, starting at $43,995 and going up to $49,995. Apart from more powertrain options, Premium includes conveniences like ventilated seating, power liftgate, 360-degree parking camera and a 10-speaker B&O sound system.

Meanwhile the GT starts at $53,995 with the option to unleash its full potential for a mere $995 extra. Lastly, the Mach-e Rally comes in at $59,995.

Which should I choose?

If we were to go with one, we suspect the new Mach-E Rally will be too compelling to ignore. Sure, the base, non-sporty Mach-E models provide the smooth ride and convenience, but there’s not much that’s unique about them beyond that. We’d say the GT would be the way to go, but apart from that whole performance upgrade thing souring the pot slightly, the Rally should have just a bit more of its own personality. Even if it’s a bit exaggerated and probably not for everyone.

Competition for the Mach-E has never been stiffer, thanks to fun EVs like the Kia EV6 GT or its sibling, the Ioniq 5. Perennial rival Chevrolet has its Blazer EV for the sake of utility but it won’t beat the Ford in performance, even when it’s in working order.
