Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally Only Took One Year To Develop

The Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally – a rally-focused, off-road-capable version of the EV crossover – debuted back in July, and was fully revealed earlier this month. More than just another one-off EV demonstrator, the Mach-E Rally will be sold to the general public starting next year, giving those in the market the opportunity to buy something a little more fun than the average, cookie-cutter crossover. However, in spite of its many differences compared to the regular model, the dirt-friendly version of that particular model didn’t exactly take much time to develop, according to Donna Dickson, chief engineer, Mustang Mach-E.

“Just a year ago, this was merely an idea, and what you see today is a testament to the passion and intense creativity of our Model e team, Dickson said. “We have always explored new areas of performance, and the combination of a rally-tuned suspension, dual motor electric powertrain, and wicked styling makes the Mustang Mach-E Rally a different kind of performance vehicle that will excite customers chasing their next adventure.”

This is nothing new for The Blue Oval, however, as the automaker is developing new models faster than ever before, a process aided by utilizing smaller teams and ditching formalities such as formal senior management reviews. At the same time, The Blue Oval has found speciality models such as the Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally to be fantastic profit generators, which is precisely why it continues to make them.

Set to compete in the next running of the Rebelle Rally off-road race, the Mustang Mach-E Rally uses two electric motors to generate 480 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque, and is equipped with a host of other upgrades including 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 drivers maximize the performance of those additions.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    “Blending the love of driving with the ultimate challenge of precise navigation, the Rebelle Rally tests your skills over 8 days of competition. It is not a race for speed, but a unique and demanding event based on the elements of headings, hidden checkpoints, time, and distance using maps, compass, and roadbook”.
    I wasn’t expecting it to be the Baja 1000, but this must be the “green” version of future rally racing.

    I just don’t know who will actually buy this. It’s an old woman’s CUV that is dressed up for “rally racing”?
