The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 already comes with a host of exterior upgrades that give it a distinctive look. Plus, it’s available with the optional Handling Package, which differentiates the Mach 1 even more from the rest of its Ford Mustang brethren. However, Ford Authority has learned that an optional Mach 1 Appearance Package will also be available on the reborn pony car.
The Mach 1 Appearance Package consists of the following features and equipment:
- Fighter Jet Gray Paint (Appearance Package Only)
- Ebony/Orange Interior with unique Orange front seatback accent color
- Unique Brake Calipers in Orange
- Unique Exterior Hood and Side Stripe – Black/Orange
While the Mach 1 will be available in 600A (High Package) and 700A (Deluxe Package) configuration, the Appearance Package will only available in conjunction with 700A package. Also, it’s worth noting that Fighter Jet Gray will only be available with the Appearance Package.
The 2021 Mach 1 is powered by a modified version of Ford’s 5.0L Coyote V8 that produces 480 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, which is mated to either a Tremec 3160 6-speed manual transmission or Ford’s 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission with an upgraded torque converter and unique calibration.
As we recently reported, the combination of that drivetrain and a host of Shelby GT350 and GT500 parts combine to make the Mach 1 a serious performer on the track. In fact, it can reportedly hang with the GT500 on shorter circuits.
The Mach 1’s design hearkens back to the original with familiar styling elements including a front grille with faux lamps, low-gloss magnetic and black accents, along with hood and side stripes. Unfortunately for old school Mach 1 fans, there is no shaker hood, either as standard or optional equipment.
The 2021 Mustang Mach 1 starts out at $52,915 and will be available in both Europe and North America. European availability hasn’t yet been announced, but Mach 1 deliveries will begin in North America in Spring of 2021.
