2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E Drops Comfort/Technology Package

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.

    Why Don’t FORD Just Make a PLAIN JANE, with NOTHING BUT A BATTERY, BRAKE, AND Accelerator Peddle. That’s It. CRANK UP Window’s, and a 3″ DISPLAY. And call it a DAY!!!! Jesus H. And Sell it for $25K.

    I’ve been waiting to buy it but after seeing all that I’m losing this year I feel I should wait for the next year otherwise I’ll have buyers remorse.

    Wonderful news isn’t it? All the technology out the door unless you buy the best of the best! Wondering, will Nascar run with electric cars? Funny isn’t it? Wonder how many laps before they go in for a charge? What a joke, may ICE rule forever.

    What else can they do, or add, to drive the price up, and out of the reach of millions of Americans? At least GM and Nissan started out with affordable models when they entered the EV market, gaining experience, etc., before launching more up scale models ( while they are still offering affordable models ). But oh no, not Ford, lets go for the big bucks. Ford is years, if not decades, away from offering affordable models, if ever. It could be their undoing.

    Awesome strategy! Raise the price and take out content. Sounds real “customer friendly” to me!

    Where did they get lead times of 18-24 weeks. I ordered 2. First one took 10 months and second one is going to be over 1 year. I suspect The marketing team must have given best case scenarios.

    I love my Mach E, 2022 premium extended range model. Will never go back to ICE. I have never owned an American made vehicle prior to my Mach E. Previously owned several high end Acura’s, so I was unsure of Fords quality. This vehicle blows my Acura’s out of the water. However, the wait was almost unbearable . I ordered it April 2021 and received it February 2022. But well worth the wait! I drive everyday to and from work and run errands in it. We have driven it on a few road trips. I end up plugging in to charge at our home about once every 10 days, sometimes I can go longer without a charge. I plug in when we go to bed and unplug in the morning, it is so incredibly easy. Our electric bill compared to last year has been running the same and one month it was even less than last year. I do make sure to plug in when rates are cheeper (at night) and when demand is lower in our area.

    Ford will make less expensive EV’s in the near future. It seems they decided to go head to head with Tesla who started with the expensive Models S and X.
    The strategy is working well since demand is exceeding their ability to supply.
