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 designs. That includes further expanding the Mustang GT 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 a step up from the regular S550 Mustang GT and GT Performance Pack II but a step below the Shelby GT350 and GT500 (via Ford).

Interestingly, Ford discontinued the Shelby GT350 in 2021 since Mach I and Shelby aim at the same market and have similar price tags. Under the hood is the same 5.0-liter Coyote V8 but with a few Shelby and Bullitt parts, which results in 480 HP (same as the Bullitt). Car fans hoped for a 500 HP rating. But for some reason, Ford decided to keep it to 480 HP using already existing components. However, the 2021-3 Mach I 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. It’s a limited-edition model so its price will only go up.

Although the car industry is inevitably going in the direction of electric and/or renewable energy sources, it’s good to know that the people at Dodge are still interested in good old gasoline. How else can we explain the newest and greatest addition to the extreme truck class – the 2021 Ram TRX? If you don’t know what the TRX is, let us put it this way – it’s a cross between the Ram Rebel and Dodge Challenger Hellcat. It is an all-terrain beast with a supercharged Hemi under the hood and a bad attitude (via Ram Trucks).

With a starting price of $69,000, it isn’t cheap. But it is an extremely capable, fast, and durable vehicle whose sole aim is to beat Ford’s Raptor. That’s why it has a 702 HP engine under the hood. It also has a specially tuned chassis, suspension, and gearbox. It’s the new king of the hill when it comes to extreme off-road trucks you can get from your local dealer.

Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 (2020)

The 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 is a car of superlatives. This Mustang is the most powerful car in the long lineage of powerful machines and the first Mustang with an MSRP of almost $80,000. That can quickly inflate to nearly $100,000 if you tick a few boxes. Affordability was one of the critical points of Mustangs throughout the years, and we can’t call 100k cars affordable. But despite the whopping price, this car is worth the asking price. Here is why (via Car and Driver).

Under the hood is a supercharged 5.2-liter V8 with 760 HP with a 10-speed automatic. The 0 to 60 mph is possible in 3.5 seconds, making it the quickest production Mustang ever. However, this isn’t all. The 2020 Shelby GT500 is full of intelligent components, carbon, and lightweight materials and has a unique aero package and revised suspension and braking. It is genuinely a supercar-beating Mustang, but also adequately priced.
