Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally Debuts As Off-Road Capable EV

Back in July, The Blue Oval teased what looked to be a rally-inspired Ford Mustang Mach-E variant in a bit of a surprise, and just a few days later, revealed what is officially called the Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally at the 2023 Goodwood Festival of Speed, a unique idea dreamed up by FoMoCo team members. However, the automaker didn’t reveal any specifics about its high-speed off-road EV at that time, only noting that this isn’t just some one-off all-electric demonstrator – but rather, that it will also be sold to the public. Now, the Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally has been fully revealed, and it’s even wilder than previously thought.

For starters, the Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally offers up more power than even the range-topping Mach-E GT Performance Edition – 480 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque – versus 480/634 for the latter model – from a pair of electric motors. However, the Rally’s focus is far different, as one might imagine, setting its sights on unpaved roads covered in dirt and loose gravel. FoMoCo even constructed a special rally course at its Michigan proving grounds where it could properly develop the Mach-E Rally, too.

Underneath, the Rally’s extra power is complemented by MagneRide shocks with specially-tuned springs, a 0.8-inch suspension lift, 15.8-inch front brake rotors with Brembo calipers, and protective shielding for both motors, while a unique RallySport drive mode helps take advantage of those tweaks.

All of that hardware is complemented by a set of model-specific 19-inch wheels wrapped in Michelin CrossClimate2 all-season tires, while the Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally looks the part with a unique front fascia, fog lights, a hatch-mounted rear wing, stripes, and a black-painted roof. In terms of range, taking it easy with the right foot should result in around 250 miles from the crossover’s battery pack, which offers up 91.0 kWh of usable capacity.

When the Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally goes on sale early next year, it’s expected to cost somewhere around $65,000, though pricing hasn’t yet been set in stone, it seems. Regardless, those seeking a high-speed off-road thrill machine with rally influence will now be able to get precisely that, albeit without any sort of screaming turbocharged ICE engine underhood.

    So it goes from 5.7″ ground clearance to 6.5″. I hope they’re going to run on smooth courses.

    Is Ford looking for more ways to move the EVs sitting on lots? Trying to instill some passion into boring EVs? While any rally car is fun, I think EVs are at a severe disadvantage in this environment due to their substantial extra weight. You can’t defy physics cornering on a loose dirt road/track with an extra 1,000+ lbs. And why not a rally ICE Mustang? We saw the concept here on TFA a few months ago and it was awesome! I would much rather have “any sort of screaming turbocharged ICE engine.” The sound is part of the thrill.

    Nice idea wrong time. Some EV guys with money to burn may buy this but we have too many 60K plus EV’s. Mach E has several issues, the range is to small. The charging curve to slow. Over heating when you use the GT like a sports car is unacceptable. The range numbers are below a Chevy Bolt. So for the money and the awful dealer buying experience its just not worth it.

    0.8″? Why not just give it a full inch? Why not a more useable 3″?

      I am getting mine lifted by Eibach. 1.5″ lift all around, Eibach sway bars and wheel spacers will round out my Premium MME for more off road usability.
