Job 1 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E EVs May Be The Ones To Buy

Earlier this week, The Blue Oval announced that it was slashing 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E prices by a significant margin, a move that was made in part to help reduce inventory and make room for 2024 models while also positioning it to better compete with its chief rival, the Tesla Model Y. These price cuts don’t just make the 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E a more enticing purchase, but also, some substantial cash offers also make it quite affordable to lease, too. However, according to CarsDirect, it may actually be better to buy or lease an older 2023 model year Ford Mustang Mach-E than a newer one, for a couple of very good reasons.

This is mainly due to the fact that when Ford cut Mach-E prices last March, it did so while also removing a couple of valuable features – three years of complimentary BlueCruise, as well as the previously-standard mobile power cord. That latter piece alone costs $500 to purchase separately, while Ford values the three-year BlueCruise subscription at $2,100 – meaning that early, Job 1 2023 Mach-E models come with $2,600 more in terms of equipment than later builds.

Interestingly, in a note sent to dealers, FoMoCo acknowledged this fact, too. “With the new price parity, this makes Job 1 vehicles a better value for customers,” the letter reads. “For the first time, Job 1 and Job 2 vehicles will be equally priced, despite Job 1 vehicles having more standard equipment.”

Ford’s recent price cuts for the Mach-E range by trim, but top out at $8,100, meaning that if one can find a Job 1 model in California Route 1 or Premium trims, they could essentially save upwards of $10,700, though the the Mach-E GT Performance Edition comes in at even more – $12,600 – as it previously had an MSRP of $69,995 minus destination fees, but now can be had for as little as $57,395.
