Ford Mustang Mach 1 Returns for 2021
After a long absence, the legendary Ford Mustang Mach 1 is returning for the 2021 model year, bringing retro styling and modern performance to the already impressive Mustang lineup. The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 will be the pinnacle of performance for 5.0-liter V8-powered Mustangs, with only the track-ready Mustang Shelby GT500 sitting above it in the lineup.
The new Mustang Mach 1 has both the power and handling performance needed to tackle the street and the track with Ford Performance suspension parts, a tuned 5.0-liter V8 producing 480 horsepower, and a standard Tremec 6-speed manual transmission with an optional 10-speed automatic.
A unique Mach 1 grille has been designed to call back to the original, along with a front splitter that improves track performance and gives a more aggressive appearance. Along with the matched rear spoiler, the Mach 1 generates 22 percent more downforce than a Mustang GT with the Performance Pack Level 1. Adding the Handling Package to the Mach 1 increases that downforce comparison to an impressive 150 percent.
New 19-inch wheels have also been designed especially for the Mach 1, and are reminiscent of the Magnum 500 style wheels available on the original car. At 9.5- and 10-inches wide front and rear, they offer improved handling with their wide tires and an aggressive stance. Handling Package equipped vehicle get even wider wheels painted in Tarnished Dark.
