Entering its third model year, the 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E is also set to receive a few changes – most notably, some rather large price increases amid rising materials costs. In addition to gaining in terms of pricing and some new features and option packages, the 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E is also set to lose at least one particular item – the Comfort/Technology Package, which was previously optional on 2022 Mustang Mach-E Select models.
The Comfort-Technology Package added Ford Co-Pilot360 Active 2.0 and BlueCruise to the EV crossover, along with a power liftgate, a cargo area cover, a 360-degree camera with split view and a front washer, a heated steering wheel, heated front seats with a memory driver’s seat, a six-way manual passenger seat, and power-folding side view mirrors. It’s worth noting that some of these features are technically standard on the Select trim, as it now comes with a 90-day free trial of BlueCruise and the 360-degree camera. However, those seeking the rest of these features will need to step up to the Premium trim for 2023.
In addition to this deletion, 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E Premium models equipped with the extended range battery are receiving a range boost of 13 miles, which gives it an EPA-estimated 290 miles of range. Ford Co-Pilot360 is standard across the entire lineup, too. In terms of exterior color changes, the 2023 Mustang Mach-E is gaining both Carbonized Gray Metallic and Vapor Blue Metallic, which will replace Dark Matter Gray Metallic and Iced Blue Silver Metallic.
Additionally, the panoramic fixed-glass roof is now standard on the GT and GT Performance Edition, replacing the black-painted roof. California Route 1 models are dropping standard rear-wheel drive in favor of all-wheel drive as well, shortly after FoMoCo decided to add all-wheel drive as an option for the 2022 model, which was previously only available in rear-wheel drive configuration.
Finally, the new Nite Pony Package adds a host of black elements to the EV crossover, but is only available on the extended-range Premium and GT Performance Edition models. As Ford Authority reported earlier this week, estimated delivery times for the 2023 Mach-E range from 18-22 weeks for all models, save for the save for the Premium, which is expected to ship within 18-24 weeks.
