Model year 2021 was exciting in Dearborn, Michigan, as the all-electric Mustang Mach-E made its debut, as the first Ford vehicle ever designed from scratch without an internal combustion engine. It only takes a glance to see that its look was heavily influenced by the iconic lines of the legendary Pony Car. With that said, the Mach-E is fully modern, showing off attractive angles and a confident stance. Its spacious cabin displays the expected tech, dominated by a 15.5-inch screen, front and center. The 2023 edition offers an alluring mix of looks, performance, and range, with some trims able to travel as much as 310 miles per charge. As far as speed, the GT Performance Edition goes from 0 to 60 time in a mere 3.5 seconds.View Inventory
Let’s start with trim levels: you can choose from the Select, California Route 1, Premium, and GT. All
but the GT come with a 70-kWh Standard Range battery pack and a 266 hp (317 lb.-ft. of torque) electric
motor; it’s positioned at the rear axle in rear-wheel-drive versions, but the available all-wheel drive
(AWD) option will add an electric motor to the front axle. With AWD, the combined torque output jumps to
The California Route 1 and Premium are eligible for an upgrade to a 91-kWh Extended Range battery, raising output to 290 hp with RWD and 346 hp (and 428 lb.-ft. of torque) with AWD. The GT gets this Extended Range battery and AWD by default, giving it 480 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. of torque, although the Performance Edition upgrade will raise the torque output to 634 lb.-ft.
The EPA has determined several range estimations based on which configuration of trim level, drivetrain, and battery is selected. That spans from a low of 224 miles with the Standard Range battery and AWD to 310 miles for the California Route 1 and Premium with Extended Range battery and RWD. With AWD and the Extended Range battery, drivers can expect 290 miles from the Route 1 and Premium range. As far as the GT, it’s estimated to get 270 miles per charge with the 91-kWh battery and AWD, while the GT Performance Edition supplies 260 miles.
Charging time with the available Ford Connect Charge Station (Level 2/240V) is just under 11 hours, or about 28 miles per plugged-in hour. The standard 240-volt Ford Mobile Charger will take closer to 15 hours to get a depleted battery to 100%, translating to 20 miles of range per charging hour.
As the base trim of the 2023 Mustang Mach-E, the Select is still very well equipped. It has proximity
keyless entry, a power-adjustable (eight ways) driver's seat, LED exterior lighting with sequential rear
turn signals, push-button start, ActiveX upholstery, a 10.2-inch digital instrument cluster, an
auto-dimming rearview mirror, 18-inch aluminum wheels, and heated power-adjustable exterior mirrors with
puddle lamps that project the shape of the famous pony. The California Route 1 trim is upgraded with a
heated steering wheel, driver's-side position memory, perforated ActiveX upholstery, a panoramic
fixed-glass roof, and power-folding exterior mirrors. The Premium boasts heated front seats, an
eight-way power-adjustable front passenger seat, a power liftgate, ambient interior lighting, and
The GT gets most of the same comfort features as the Premium, but its sporty upgrades are the real attraction. It has 20-inch wheels and a sport-tuned suspension, as well as heightened style with black exterior elements and special upholstery accents. The GT Performance Edition will give you a MagneRide damping system, front-row sport-contoured seats, and specially styled 20-inch wheels. Ford also offers the Unbridled Extend Drive Experience elective for the GT Performance Edition to give it more consistent power on the track.

This safety-enhancing tech bundle consists of automatic high beams, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring with cross-traffic alert, lane-keeping alert, lane-keeping assist, reverse brake assist, and rear parking sensors. Adaptive cruise control is installed on all trims as well. The Select is eligible for a surround-view monitor and Ford’s BlueCruise semi-automated driving system; these features are standard on the three highest trims.
