The Ford Mustang has been a quintessential part of the automotive industry’s history for decades. It has evolved beautifully through six generations while retaining its appeal as a muscle car. In 2021, Ford made headlines with the debut of a different type of Mustang. Specifically, the Mustang Mach-E was introduced as an all-electric luxury crossover. While these models share a nameplate, a closer look reveals their many impressive differences.
A review of the 2021 Mustang begins under the hood. Several gas-powered engines are available. The options begin with a 2.3-liter turbo, four-cylinder engine that puts out 310 horsepower. Another option is a 5.0-liter, V8, 460-horsepower engine. The all-new Mustang Mach 1 trim level gives you 480 horsepower. On the other hand, the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E crossover SUV is offered with several all-electric motor configurations. The base option is a 266-horsepower motor with a range of 230 miles. At the top end of the spectrum, the Mustang Mach-E GT produces 480 horsepower and has a range of 270 miles.
The Mustang and the Mustang Mach-E are easy to differentiate on the road. The Mustang has an aggressive look with flared haunches and confident curvature from nose to tail. The downturned grille is combined with a powerful front bumper and piercing headlights to showcase the model’s strength. The Mustang Mach-E has larger dimensions with a strong angle and brilliant definition through the hood. The grille has a glossy appearance, and it is flanked by darkened, angled LED headlights. The Mach-E’s haunches are well-defined, and definition rolls through the side doors.
If you choose to drive home in the Mustang, your car may come with equipment like Recaro sport seats, a Bang & Olufsen sound system, heated seats, a heated steering wheel, a navigation system, wireless smart device connectivity, adaptive cruise control, and more. The Mustang Mach-E has many of these same features in select trim levels. It also has a split-folding rear seat, a fixed glass roof, memory functions for the front seats, and a few other items across different trim levels.
