Ford Motor Company has announced that the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 will soon be sold as a global model. The American muscle car presents itself as a middle variant for those who want a more powerful version of the GT but don't want to step into hardcore Shelby performance territory. While no specific date has been confirmed, reports have stated that the Mach 1 will be available for showroom arrival sometime around Spring of 2021. Pricing for these powerful sports cars has yet to be determined as they may vary per region that they are sold in.
A Pony car that's big on power
Under the hood, the Mach1 comes with a 5.0-liter Coyote V8 engine that produces 480hp and 569 Nm of torque. Transmission options come in the form of either a 10-speed automatic transmission that comes with rev-matching or a 6-speed Tremec transmission that it shares with its more powerful brother the GT350. Being one of the more powerful variants of the Mustang the Mach 1 gains even more access to Shelby performance parts with the additions of, a new intake manifold, oil filter adapter, engine oil cooler, rear axle coolers, rear valence, and a 4.5-liter exhaust.
In order to tame all the horses under the hood the Mach 1’s suspension comes with Ford’s latest MagneRide Calibrations, EPAS calibration, stiffer sway bars, stiffer springs, and a stronger brake booster. The bushings on the muscle car itself have also been upgraded as new stiffer versions have been put into place. The rear toe-link from the GT500 has also been added to the Mach 1 giving it better handling characteristics.
With the Mach 1 being a relatively limited model we can expect these models to be sold out quickly if Ford Philippines decides to bring these more powerful muscle cars into the local market.
