That Mach 1 Look
Just one look at the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 tells any discerning driver that this is a force to be reckoned with. From every angle, it’s obvious that aerodynamics play a huge part in the overall appearance of the Mach 1. That being said, Ford has taken great care to pay homage to the model that started it all.
Staying true to the sharp shark-nose grille section, Ford has decked out the front of the Mach 1 with low gloss magnetic and black accents. That includes Satin Black hood and side stripes, with reflective details in red, white, and orange. Drivers will have a choice of bold exterior colors, such as Shadow Black, Velocity Blue, Twister Orange, Race Red, and Grabber Yellow. The body sits stealthily upon 19-inch Tarnished Dark aluminum wheels, a nod to the classic Magnum 500 wheels of days gone by.
That Mach 1 Feel
Inside the cabin are ebony seats with horizontal accent stripes. Recaro seats are optional, and those who choose the manual transmission will be treated to a white cue-ball shifter for that retro appeal. Still, modern features, such as a 12.3 inch LED display, remind drivers that this is a new age and that the cabin is filled with the latest and greatest in modern technological advances.
Though it might be track-ready, the Mach 1 is equipped with the convenience features any driver craves, including the Ford Sync 3 infotainment system, featuring voice controls and integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It is also equipped with Ford’s Co-Pilot360 suite of driver assistance features, such as automatic high beams, blind spot detection with cross traffic alerts, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and automatic emergency braking to help mitigate forward-facing collisions.
Combining the power and grace of the 1969 classic version with the impeccable technology and aerodynamics of the 21st century, the comeback of the Mach 1 is poised to be the automotive performance event of the year. The Ford brand has been invested in speed and performance since its founding in 1901. The time has finally come for the Mach 1 to hit the tracks yet again, perhaps with more rally championships in its future. Is the world ready for the 2021 Mustang Mach 1? Well, ready or not, the Mach 1 is headed to the United States and Canada in Spring 2021. With its suave-yet-aggressive appearance and genetically engineered need for speed, the Mach 1 seems to be the performance-based pony car the world has been craving.
