Back in May, the 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E received a towing capacity boost in Europe, and models equipped with the extended range battery and either rear- or all-wheel drive were able to tow up to 1,000 kilograms (2,204 pounds) – a change that was made via an over-the-air update. This was particularly notable because in the U.S., the Mach-E owner’s manual specifically states that it isn’t approved for towing trailers. Now, the European Ford Mustang Mach-E is once again getting a towing capacity boost, as well as some new tech in its latest update.
Mach-E rear- and all-wheel drive models equipped with the 91 kWh extended-range battery are now able to tow up to 1,500 kilograms (3,306 pounds), which is a significant boost over the previous rating. However, that isn’t the only upgrade European Ford Mustang Mach-E owners are receiving, as the EV crossover has also been equipped with the new Intelligent Automated Cruise Control 2.0.
Building upon the original version of that particular feature, Intelligent Automated Cruise Control 2.0 can now use information derived from the navigation system and forward-facing camera to automatically adjust vehicle speed not only according to speed limit signs, but also based on upcoming curves, turns, and roundabouts. Additionally, the Premium trim is now available in rear-wheel drive configuration with the extended-range battery. Finally, Vapor Blue and Carbonized Gray have been added to the exterior color lineup, while the Mach-E is also getting two new alloy wheel designs.
Meanwhile, in the U.S., the 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E has been treated to a few updates as well, with Premium models getting a 13-mile range boost to 290 miles, Ford Co-Pilot360 is now standard across the entire lineup, Select trims get Ford BlueCruise and the 360-degree camera for a complimentary 90-day trial period, the California Route 1 is now only available with all-wheel drive, and the panoramic fixed-glass roof is standard on the GT and GT Performance Edition. Finally, the Nite Pony Package will also be available on both the extended-range Premium and GT Performance Edition.
