26. 2021 Ford Mustang Mach I
Even though 2020 wasn’t the best year in the car industry because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Ford was still able to introduce new products and new designs. That includes further expanding the Mustang range. One such product was the brand-new 2021 Mustang Mach I. This model marked the return of the legendary Mustang nameplate used periodically from 1969 to 1973 and from 2003 to 2004. This Mach I is better than ever and has more power and performance than its predecessors. The 2021 Mach I is envisioned as a step up from the regular S550 Mustang GT and GT Performance Pack II but a step below the Shelby GT350 and GT500.
Interestingly, Ford will discontinue the Shelby GT350 for 2021 since the Mach I and Shelby are aimed for the same market and have somewhat similar price tags. Under the hood is the same 5.0-liter Coyote V8 but with few Shelby and Bullitt parts, which results in a 480 hp rating (same as the Bullitt). The customers hoped for a 500 hp rating, but for some reason, Ford decided to keep it 480 hp using already existing components. However, the 2021 Mach I will come with special body parts, a handling package, special paint, decal trim, and a host of unique details to enhance this special version of Mustang’s identity. Since Ford is getting ready to introduce the next-gen Mustang in two years, you can expect that Mach I will be a limited-production model that will probably last until 2022.
