The 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E represents the second model year for the EV crossover, one that has introduced a few changes to the relatively new model. According to sources familiar with the matter, that now includes the removal of Ford Active Park Assist 2.0 from the 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E lineup in Job 2 production. Orders scheduled for that period, which includes early May, are now being automatically changed to include the addition of an Active Park Assist Prep Kit, which allows dealers to install the feature at a later date when it becomes available, though no specifics are available at this time. Customers who purchase vehicles equipped with this kit will also receive a $325 credit that will be listed on the window sticker.
Ford’s Active Park Assist 2.0 feature – which allows a vehicle to take over in parallel and perpendicular parking situations and can also be used to pull out of parallel spots – comes as standard equipment on California Route 1 and Premium models, and is also available as an option on Select trims as part of the Comfort/Technology Package. That package also includes Ford’s Co-Pilot360 Active 2.0, BlueCruise, a 360-degree camera with split-view and a front washer, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a memory driver’s seat, a 6-way manual passenger seat, side view power-folding mirrors, a cargo area cover, and a power liftgate.
Active Park Assist 2.0 is also available on Mach-E GT models equipped with the optional Ford Co-Pilot360 Active 2.0 package, which includes BlueCruise and a 360-degree camera with split-view and a front washer. In addition to this change, Ford also stopped taking retail orders for 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E Premium and California Route 1 trims back in February due to strong demand, though order banks remain open for Select, GT, and GT Performance Edition models.
The Mach-E is the latest in a long line of Blue Oval models that have seen features removed in an effort to deliver vehicles more quickly amid a number of supply constraints including the chip shortage. That includes the 2022 Ford F-150, which recently gained an auto start/stop removal option, as well as the 2022 Ford Explorer, which also added an auto stop/start removal option and is also temporarily dropping its second-row climate controls.
