Whatever it ends up being called, a Mustang-inspired SUV is in the works and it’ll only be another six months before details are available. “Not the Mach 1” 2021 models should be available sometime in 2020. Consumer response to the proposed Mach 1 name was negative, so Ford will have to come up with something else.
Ford Authority’s got some Russian renderings of what that Mustang SUV might look like that use the Mustang’s front and rear ends and its rear hips to envision what Ford might build.
While the drawings of the Mustang SUV may look more like a four-door wagon (think Subaru Outback or VW Golf Alltrack), it’s all just speculation at the moment. One thing is for almost-sure though: the Mustang SUV will only come with an electric drivetrain—there won’t be a 460 hp, 5.0-liter Mustang look-alike SUV.
Instead, Ford will probably offer two electric drivetrain variants, one powertrain with more than a 300-mile driving range, the other offering closer to 400 miles (373). And there may be a high-performance version too.
While you’re waiting till November to see what the Mustang SUV’s really going to look like and find out what Ford’s calling it, come in to Sound Ford near Seattle, Washington, to see our variety of new and pre-owned SUVs. Or to test-drive a 2019 Ford Mustang EcoBoost!
