The first thing I noticed when I slipped behind the wheel of the all-new, all-electric Ford Mustang Mach-E SUV was the large touchscreen command center mounted on the dash. It immediately imparted a futuristic feel. When I started it, I heard...nothing. “Is it running?” I thought to myself. One touch of the accelerator immediately answered that question. This baby had no issues with get up and go.
The Mach-E GT Performance boasts 0-60 in 3.5 seconds. Honestly, while driving, I felt like there wasn’t another car on the road that I couldn’t take! I suppose Ford couldn’t give it the Mustang name and badge without including the feel of the ponies under the hood (even though there’s nothing actually under the hood but a trunk).
As expected, this car is loaded with fantastic features, but most impressive was the range - up to 300-miles! With an MSRP starting at $42,895, this car is the perfect marriage of luxury and future technology.
If you’re a gearhead, you may not think you’re a fan of electric vehicles, but considering this one was named the 2021 North American Utility Vehicle of the Year, it might just be worth a second look. Remember, nobody really liked those noisy, stinky, gas-powered, “horseless carriages” either!
Make sure you attend the Mustang Show on April 17th at Laird Noller Ford in Topeka.
