So, yesterday we told you that we would have no further specs or details on the Ford Mustang Mach-E until its formal debut tomorrow. Well, lucky for you (and us), the surprise has been spoiled because photos and details of the electric SUV have been leaked online. Unfortunately for Ford, someone had the SUV’s online configurator live too early. Ford has since removed the page, but of course the MachE Forum is home to geniuses who got some screen captures.
Oh, and we didn’t just get photos of the newest member of the Mustang family, we got the power specs as well (what a treat!). Without further adieu, we’ll get down to it. Five trims will be available, including Select, California Rt. 1, Premium, First Edition, and GT. The base Select model will have an electric motor and produce around 255-hp and 306 lb-ft of torque with RWD and 429 lb-ft of torque with AWD. In the RWD model, the car will go 0-62 in 6.5 seconds, while the AWD model will do it in 5.5 seconds. Pricing for the base model starts at $43,895.
The Premium model is also available with either AWD or RWD and comes with other goodies (i.e 19-inch wheels.) The powertrain options for the Premium model are the same as the Select. As always, more to come, we’re hoping these specs are confirmed tomorrow at the “reveal.”
Ford has been teasing the Mustang-inspired electric SUV for quite some time. But fear no more, the wait is almost over. The automaker has confirmed that the newest member of the family will be revealed this weekend (November 17th) in Los Angeles. The Blue Oval has also just released the name of said SUV: the Mustang Mach-E. We’re surprised that the SUV will retain the Mustang nameplate but hey, if the shoe fits!
At the close of the event, Ford will begin taking reservations for the Mustang Mach-E and will require a $500 deposit. Customers that act early will be eligible for a limited First Edition model (details of this version will be announced at the event.) We don’t have any performance specs for you just yet, but hope that we’ll learn more after the debut. As always, check back in later for more updates.
As the holiday season quickly approaches, so do the inevitable deals on the most popular vehicles on the market. Right now, Ford is offering big discounts on the remaining 2019 F-150s throughout the US. Depending where you live, you could save up to $12,000. The deals won’t last forever though (as soon as this week). The only exclusions are the 2019 F-150 Raptor and the 3.0-liter PowerStroke diesel. Interested? We encourage you to act fast.
It’s been four months since Chevrolet revealed the 2020 Corvette Stingray, and now the wait begins for the newest addition to the family, the Z06. And now, we may have been given a sneak peek inside the C8 Corvette Z06 (shout out to CNET Roadshow). The design sketch of the interior is particularly peaking our interest. Sure, this might not be the final interior design, but we’ll take what we can get for now. It’ll be a while, considering the Z06 isn’t expected until 2022, but we’re thinking it’ll be worth the wait.
Autonomous driving has always been controversial. Tesla’s autopilot system is rated 3/5 on the autonomy scale, and according to this video, still has some improvements to be made. Richmond News in British Columbia, Canada reported that a Tesla Model 3 was operating in self-driving mode at a shopping center, and was driving on the wrong side of the road as it entered the parking lot. The car’s owner had “Smart Summoned” the vehicle to pick them up outside of a store. This feature is new and is done through a mobile app and requires the owner to be no more than 200 feet away from the car. See for yourself, right here.
