See Exterior Dimensions / Ride height
5.7" on all but the GT, which is 5.3"
Thanks... not sure how I missed that... small type on my screen, I guess...
I've never heard "ground clearance" listed as "ride height", but that's surely what it means.

OK the more I read and learn about this great Mach. I have come to realize that
ALL our Reserved Mach's are completely loaded with all the options. We did not
pick and choose any options. So the first 50K will be the best. Yep the assembly
line is a no brainer----just put all options on these Machs !! Do you agree ?

One thing I would like Ford to do and other car makers also. Most if not all
cars and trucks now have "Push Button" start. So why is it not possible to
have them all shut down when they exceed 100' from the key fob? Just
think of all the "Car Jackings" that would stop.

I'm pretty sure my Fiesta does turn off after being left running in park for a long time. (15-30 minutes, maybe?)

If you take the keys with you, with the car running, the car honks twice when you close the driver door. My Fiesta does this. We've already seen the MME do this in videos.

If you open the driver door while the car is running, it plays a loud chime inside the car.

I do not wish for this to go off topic again but will only reply once to the subject of car jacking. Well for electric cars I am sure it can be done if you know your way around a computer and some good hacking skills. However, since phone and car are linked to gps, Bluetooth, and other things that are accessible thru apps on your phone the owner will always know where his car is. Unless someone hacks the cars system and removes your ability to see what is going on.

I have seen some videos of people actually doing this in their tesla's where they set up some sort of hot spot or something and one guy in another car has hacked his car and locked the owner out of it. So these obviously are guys showing some risks but they do state its not as easy as they make it seem because all the firewalls, and security issues that come in play here.

Thanks for the input on car jacking. But most of it is done by normal
dumb asses!! This feature would really be great and I do not see why
it could not be possible for car makers to add it. Also just plain steeling
your car. Now back to great things we know about Mach 3.

Are these what are called "puddle lights"?
Do they project the Ford logo on he ground or something?
They project a galloping Mustang on the ground at both driver and passenger doors. Good size too 20”Lx8”H. Tres Cool.

Yes tires and wheels has moved. 😢 Let's get back to having fun
sharing Mach info. Might as well make the wait fun.
I do have a question : My Premium has a "Fixed Glass" sun roof.
Where did I read some will have a painted roof ?

The black painted roof is part of an appearance package. I think for the select trim.

Puddle lights would be a nice touch. I wouldn't mind the electric pony they've been using at auto shows (pic below). It's distinct and immediately recognized as the electric version.

My Taurus SHO does the shut off thing. I run into often because I'll take a nap sometimes in my car over lunch or when waiting. It dings at you and you have to acknowledge it in 30 seconds after it hits that mark or it shuts off.

And it also does the honk at you thing. I get the point of it .. but it annoying when i get out to check my mail and my car starts honking late at night lol
