Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally: The First Mustang Made to Live on Tarmac and Play in the Dirt

DEARBORN, Mich., Sept. 7, 2023 – The world is about to witness the power and agility of EVs in a new way with the Ford Mustang Mach-E® Rally. It joins the Mustang Mach-E family and pushes electric vehicles in a different direction, the first-ever rally-inspired EV from Ford takes Mustang freedom and fun onto dirt roads.

"Just a year ago, this was merely an idea, and what you see today is a testament to the passion and intense creativity of our Model e team," said Donna Dickson, chief engineer, Mustang Mach-E. "We have always explored new areas of performance, and the combination of a rally-tuned suspension, dual motor electric powertrain, and wicked styling makes the Mustang Mach-E Rally a different kind of performance vehicle that will excite customers chasing their next adventure.”

Mustang Mach-E Rally is electric vehicle technology applied to an entirely untapped white space, expanding the Mustang Mach-E family. This machine boasts a tuned version of the Mustang Mach-E GT powertrain, with a two-motor layout targeting at least 650 lb.-ft. of torque and 480 horsepower*.

The vehicle rides on a unique suspension that has been raised 20 millimeters over Mustang Mach-E GT and is equipped with specially tuned springs, MagneRide shocks, and 385-millimeter front brake rotors with red-painted Brembo®-branded calipers.

Mustang Mach-E Rally includes a lithium-ion battery with a 91 kWh usable capacity and is targeting an EPA-estimated range of 250 miles**. The Mustang Mach-E Rally is estimated to charge from 10 to 80% in approximately 36 and a half minutes on a DC Fast Charger.***

Where the rubber meets the dirt road, Mustang Mach-E Rally sports durable, gloss white 19-inch rally-style alloy wheels inspired by the long history of Ford rally vehicles and wearing 235/55 R19 Michelin CrossClimate2 tires that provide more sidewall and loose surface grip compared to GT. With all the gravel customers will kick up, the underside gets protective shielding for the front and rear motors, protective film on the door cladding and fender arches to help reduce paint chips, and available dealer-installed styled mud flaps to reduce debris spray. There’s also a recovery point built into the front end and included hook should off-highway adventures ever get a little too spicy.

Mustang Mach-E Rally has the first-ever RallySport Drive Mode from Ford, which is designed for off-road driving and allows for added yaw for bigger slides, a linear throttle response for better control, and more aggressive damping for better handling in loose corners. As a bonus, drivers will appreciate how this drive mode, combined with the new tires, allows the Mustang Mach-E Rally to perform in snow and other slick on-road conditions.

It also comes equipped with Ford technology customers have come to expect, including available Ford BlueCruise hands-free highway driving technology, which will be included with a 90-day trial or can be activated at any point during the vehicle ownership journey.† The latest generation of software, BlueCruise 1.3, builds on BlueCruise 1.0 and 1.2 by further enhancing the hands-free-driving experience. Customers will experience a more continuously engaged driving experience with Lane Change Assist and In-Lane Repositioning, providing improved performance including around curves and in narrow lanes.††

To test the Mustang Mach-E, Ford developed an all-new rally course at its Michigan Proving Ground. The course was specially designed by rallycross veterans to simulate just what the vehicle might see out in the real world. Engineers and technicians then abused Mustang Mach-E Rally prototypes in 500-mile tests simulating rally-cross durability trials to make sure it lived up to their design intent.

The Mustang Mach-E Rally also looks the part by wearing a dramatic rear spoiler that takes inspiration from the Focus® RS, unique contrasting accents, including upper and lower body moldings, a unique front splitter, black painted steel roof, distinctive and purposeful front fascia that houses built-in rally-inspired fog lights. Every Mustang Mach-E Rally comes standard with two racing stripes that complement the bold color palette. It can be ordered in Grabber Blue, Shadow Black, Eruption Green, and eye-popping Grabber Yellow with available Star White or new Glacier Gray as extra cost options.

Inside there’s a combination of comfort, functionality, and style that ties in with the iconic white wheels. There are gloss white accents on the dash, the lower spokes of the steering wheel and contrasting stitching on the doors. Drivers will strap into distinctive Ford-designed performance seats that feature gloss white seatbacks, and “Mach-E Rally” debossed into the seating surface.

“Mustang Mach-E Rally puts Ford’s decades of passion for rally championships around the world right in the hands of our customers.’ said Jim Farley, chief executive officer. “It takes Mustang where it hasn’t been before – to gravel and dirt roads. Inspired by true driving enthusiasts, a driving experience like never before for the pure joy of driving.”

With Mustang Mach E-Rally, Ford is offering a crossover for passionate drivers with an active lifestyle who want to bring their friends along on their adventures, all while doing it with zero tailpipe emissions.†††

I know what Grabber Blue looks like, curious what the Eruption Green will look like. I know we've talked about this before, but there is a solid niche market for these trim levels. As a Focus RS owner , I'm squarely in it.

Also love the foglight placement on a vehicle that I'm sure was designed from the beginning to never have fog lights.

Eruption green ooooo my.

But if it’s a GT then does it still have the same power/thermal limitation? Feel like a rally car with the prison bars is a bit of a letdown.
Agreed, somehow in a rally car it would be even more of an insult. Maybe they are using this "new" version to test an upgraded cooling system in the wider market before the refresh. Give it a name/purpose that will attract people most likely to drive it hard. (Mostly joking here)

I bet they sell more Rally versions in the EU than they do here in CONUS.

Ford says new changes in the Rally will extend the time at WOT. Some of the software changes that enable this could be coming soon to the GT and GTPE.

Ooh fun! And the extra ground clearance is great. TL;DR but same charging curve and peak power limits?

I was in Iceland for a week this summer after the initial Rally tease came out. Much of the time driving there I was thinking that Mach-E Rally would be an awesome Iceland car!

Many parts of Iceland are windy gravel roads, plus lots of ups and downs over hills. I was having fun with the EV6 rental but was thinking about the Rally version. I really wanted to pass a couple of camper trucks on these roads but was afraid of rock damage the rental company would ding me for. A personally-owned rally car on the other hand ...

Then there are the "F" roads. These forest/mountian roads are dirt or gravel and have lots of rocks, etc. They are 4WD-only and may need even more clearance than the extra 20mm or ride height the Rally gets. I haven't seen those roads but a Mach E Rally might work with its new Aluminum Underbody Protective Shields – Front and Rear. However, those roads might need a Lightning instead.

I just kept thinking that if I lived in Iceland I'd be waiting for the ordering on the Rally to open up!

Yeah, but to be fair, they said the same thing about “unbridled extend” and we know what a let down that mode is.

The one thing that gives me hope is that it’s targeting “at least 480 hp, 650 tq.”

The use of the words “at least” opens the door for more power. And the 650 > 634 for the GTPE.

My guess is that it will have the new updated power that’ll trickle down to the existing GTs, but that “rally mode” will just be another reduced power setup like unbridled extend. But maybe it won’t be reduced as much.

I like how the promotional materials make the flimsy front bumper access port a feature. Now it’s got a hook LOL!

Also, anybody serious about doing any gravel roads with this baby better PPF the whole car. Twice.
