Bottom Line:

The Ford Mustang Mach-E was an all-new model for 2021 and Ford got it right so subsequent changes have been minor/incremental. All the positives from the inaugural model remain including impressive economy, muscle car acceleration, a spacious comfortable interior, flexible cargo area plus the bonus front trunk, and the available all-wheel drive. We tested the Premium EAWD model which is a great choice if you don’t require the extra performance and expense of the GT model.
