Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition Goes 0-60 in 3.5 Seconds

Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition | Glendale, AZ | Sanderson Ford

Next summer, Ford takes electrification and performance to unbelievable heights — and speeds. The new Ford Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition will be able to hit 0-60 mph in just 3.5 seconds, making it one of the fastest electric vehicles you’ll find and helping it live up to its Mustang name.

“We already pushed the envelope by creating an electric vehicle with the pony badge, so it’s only natural that we push it even further,” said Darren Palmer, global director, battery electric vehicles, Ford Motor Company. “Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition not only gives you the added performance you expect from the GT name, but accentuates the thrill with the responsiveness of an all-electric powertrain.”

The Ford Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition draws its incredible speed from its electric powertrain. Putting down 480 horsepower and 634 lb-ft of torque, the Performance Edition is a performance beats in any respect. Add upgrades like 19-inch front brakes with red-painted Brembo® calipers, Pirelli summer tires, and MagneRide® damping, and the Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition is a track-ready zero-emissions vehicle as only Ford can deliver.

The Ford Mustang Mach-E GT and GT Performance Edition will arrive at Sanderson Ford in Glendale next summer. If you want to get in on the fun earlier, other models in the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E lineup are available at our showroom now. Contact us if you’d like to take this electrifying pony for a test drive.

Ford Mustang Mach-E Technicians Get Virtual Reality Maintenance Training

2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E

The upcoming all-electric Ford Mustang Mach-E is not only set to revolutionize the road, but will also dramatically alter the way automotive technicians learn to service the state-of-the-art crossover. An all-new virtual reality maintenance training system, developed through a partnership between Ford and technology firm Bosch, will allow technicians to learn to repair and service the upcoming electric vehicle without the need for hands-on exposure.

The new maintenance training system is accessed using an Oculus Quest VR headset that simulates the Mustang Mach-E and guides technicians through maintenance and repair using instructional, gamified modules. According to Ford’s Director of Service Engineering Operations, Dave Johnson, “This new virtual reality training tool allows technicians to understand the components and steps required to service these high-voltage systems, then confidently perform diagnostics and maintenance.”

The VR maintenance training system was initially developed by Bosch as a prototype that was tested by automotive students and their teachers as well as seasoned technicians. Ford, the first automotive manufacturer to pioneer Bosch’s technology, aptly chose the innovative Mustang Mach-E as its pilot vehicle to foray into the world of VR training.

In the coming years, Ford and Bosch expect to expand the virtual reality training program to include additional Ford vehicles and new capabilities to attract fresh talent to the industry.

 

Mustang Mach-E Frunk Makes for Epic Tailgating Season

2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E

If you want to have an epic tailgating season, you’ve got to start planning early. Luckily there’s a new tool perfect for those who love sports cars as much as they love football. The new Mustang Mach-E is the all-electric muscle car that has it all: zero emissions, striking, sporty design, an agile, thrilling ride, and a frunk. What’s a frunk you ask? It’s a front trunk, and a versatile one at that.

 

The Mustang Mach-E frunk has 4.8 cubic feet of plastic space, which is the same amount of space as you’ll find in a 36-gallon cooler. We point this out because this frunk is drainable, and therefore perfect for using in place of a large cooler. The next time you’re setting up for a tailgate party on a game day, you can serve your chilled beverages and snacks straight from the Mustang Mach-E frunk.

 

There’s lots of room for creativity here, and so many ways to put the frunk to use and upgrade your tailgating game. Pack it with ice and use it to keep beverages or perishable snacks cold, then let it drain on its own after the party. You could also fill it with warm snacks — Ford suggests chicken wings — and simply hose away the mess when you’re home.

 

There’s a lot more to love about the new Mustang Mach-E than just its frunk. Learn more about the upcoming electric SUV at Sanderson Ford.

 

2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E First Edition is Already Sold Out

2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E | Phoenix, AZ

The Ford Mustang Mach-E all-electric performance SUV may not come out for many more months, but the Mustang Mach-E First Edition is already out of reservation slots. As of December 30 of last year, some models such as the GT and Premium were still available, but that may have changed in the past few weeks.

Ford released a few pieces of data compiled from the Mach-E pre-orders, including that over a quarter of all orders came from buyers in California. There’s a small preference for all-wheel drive over rear-wheel drive — 55 percent of orders are AWD — while the extended range battery is much more popular than the standard range at 80 percent of pre-orders.

Ford first announced the new Mustang Mach-E, the first expansion on the Mustang lineup in its 55-year run, in November of 2019. The Mach-E is designed to deliver the thrilling ride of the Mustang sports car, plus the added utility of an SUV, topped off with all-electric performance that is both exhilarating and environmentally friendly.

Ford estimates that the Mach-E will have an all-electric range of around 300 miles, though EPA testing has not been completed yet. The Mach-E’s engine and electric motor combined will put out 332 horsepower and 417 lb-ft of torque, and Ford is tweaking the GT Performance Edition for leading acceleration at 0-60 mph in under 4 seconds.

Just because the Mustang Mach-E First Edition is sold out doesn’t mean you can’t get your hands on Ford’s exciting new electric SUV. Call Sanderson Ford and let us know about your interest in the Mach-E!
