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.
