Return of Mustang Mach 1?!

21 January 2020



With the recent launch of the Mustang Mach-E — originally tabled as the ‘Mach 1’ — the rumour mill has gone into full swing about the reported comeback of the Mach 1 nameplate after enthusiasts were not one bit pleased with the potential use of the Mach 1 moniker on an electric vehicle (EV). With the realization that so many people feel a fondness for the name, Ford is now reportedly bringing back the Mach 1, according to Torque News, which is claiming that “a source confirmed that this is not a rumour, but a fact that the Mustang Mach 1 will replace the Bullitt as the performance vehicle in the Mustang line-up”. A video with a handful of details also appeared online but was later taken down. The video reportedly stated that the Mach 1 would have more power than the Mustang GT, and would share some components with the Shelby GT350 and the Performance Pack Level Two. Originally introduced for the 1969 model year, the Mach 1 name was last used on the fourth-generation Mustang in 2004.
