2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E: Here’s What’s New And Different

The 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E represents the electric crossover’s third model year, with a minor slew of changes and updates, most notably highlighted by the addition of the dark-themed Nite Pony Package and standard AWD for the mid-tier California Route 1 trim.

2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E Model Line

The 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E does not see any changes to its model line. As such, it continues to be offered in four distinct trim levels, beginning with the entry level Select trim, followed by the better-equipped California Route 1, Premium and finally, the range-topping GT trims.

Meanwhile, GT and GT Performance Edition trims no longer feature a Black-painted roof, and now instead feature body color roofs. The Panoramic fixed-glass roof with infrared reflective windshield is now standard on GT and GT Performance Edition models, after previously being optional for the aforementioned trims.

The 19-inch summer tires are no longer available on the 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E Premium, and the 19-inch Shadow Silver-painted aluminum wheels with high-gloss Black-painted aero covers have also been deleted from the lineup. Meanwhile, the GT Performance Edition wheels have been replaced by the 20-inch by 8-inch high gloss Black-painted wheels available as part of the Nite Pony Package.

2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E Interior

There were no changes to the 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E interior, meaning it does not differ from its 2022 model year predecessor.

2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E Mechanical

The 2023 Mustang Mach-E continues to be offered with either a Standard Range (SR) battery or Extended Range (ER) battery pack. The SR RWD configuration produces 266 horsepower (198 kW) and 317 pound-feet of torque, good for 247 estimated miles of range. This setup is standard on Select and Premium trims. The SR AWD configuration, meanwhile, also produces 266 horsepower while delivering 428 pound-feet of torque for 224 miles of range, and is optional on Select and Premium trim.

The ER RWD configuration delivers 290 horsepower (216 kW) and 317 pound-feet of torque for 303 miles of range, optional on Premium, while the ER AWD setup produces 346 horsepower (258 kW) and 428 pound-feet of torque with 277 miles of range for Premium trim.

As previously mentioned, the 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E California Route 1 now features all-wheel-drive as standard. This powertrain is exclusively offered with the ER battery pack, and produces 346 horsepower (216 kW) and 428 pound-feet of torque, enabling an estimated 312 miles of driving range on a single charge. Previously, for the 2022 model year, rear-wheel-drive was standard for this trim level, while all-wheel-drive was optional.

Finally, ER AWD is standard on GT and GT Performance Edition trims. This configuration delivers 480 horsepower (358 kW), 600 pound-feet of torque and a 270-mile range in GT applications or 638 pound-feet of torque and a 260-mile range for GT Performance Edition applications.

2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E Packages

The Mustang Mach-E Premium and GT trims gain the dark-themed Nite Pony Package, which includes a host of black accents such as high gloss Black-painted wheels, special black outlined “Mach-E X” badging for RWD models or “Mach-E 4X” badging for AWD models, a Grille Pony badge with Black outline, and Black-painted wheel center caps with Bright Pony graphics.

The Ice White Appearance Package, meanwhile, has been deleted from the lineup after being introduced for the electric crossover’s 2022 model year.

2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E Availability

The 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E continues to ride on FoMoCo’s battery electric-vehicle dedicated GE1 platform. It’s assembled at the Cuautitlan Assembly plant in Mexico. However, The Blue Oval elected to put a hold on production of the the 2023 Mustang Mach-E in January 2023 as the automaker focused on properly equipping the Cuautitlan facility to handle a substantial increase in production, which will commence in Q1 2023. Ford expects to produce 270,000 units of the Mustang Mach-E globally during the 2023 calendar year.

    Consumer Reports recently dropped the MachE due to how unreliable it is. No thank you.

    1. RWFA

      Oh John stop making such a big deal out of backward looking surveys.

      Also, “so unreliable” is a gross exaggeration man.

      Also from CR:

      “In our survey, owners reported in-car electronics problems with the display screen freezing; some even required a hardware replacement.

      “Other reported problems were reported with the electrical system with battery pack and charging system issues, battery cell failure, and multiple battery and charge errors.

      “A Ford spokesperson said this: “”We listen to all customer feedback, including Consumer Reports, and the concerns raised by customers.

      “”The survey results were from a population of vehicles early in the launch of these vehicles and those concerns have since been addressed.

      “”Mach-E was recalled for certain 2021 and 2022 vehicles. [We] updated software to prevent any damage to the contactors. In July we rolled out an OTA (over the air) update [that] included improvements to plug and charge feature to increase successful charger activation rate.”””

      So, essentially you are flagging and exaggerating issues remediated under warranty and recall and then resolved by engineering changes.
