Ford Motor Co. in Dearborn has introduced a version of its Mustang Mach-E electric vehicle designed to go off road — the Mustang Mach-E Rally.

It’s built off the Mustang Mach-E GT with an enhanced powertrain targeting at least 650 lb.-ft. of torque plus a unique RallySport Drive Mode specifically for dirt road adventures.

The vehicle’s rally-inspired design features a raised and tuned MagneRide suspension, Oxford White 19-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, underbody shielding, and a front fascia that houses LED fog lamps.

“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,” says Donna Dickson, chief engineer for the 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.”

Every Mustang Mach-E Rally comes standard with two racing stripes that complement the color palette. It can be ordered in Grabber Blue, Shadow Black, Eruption Green, and Grabber Yellow with available Star White or new Glacier Gray as extra-cost options.

Mustang Mach-E Rally has contrasting accents, including upper and lower body moldings, a unique front splitter, black painted steel roof, and a distinctive and purposeful front fascia that houses built-in rally-inspired fog lights.

There’s also a recovery point built into the front end and included hook should they become necessary.

The underside gets protective shielding for the front and rear motors.

A protective film on the door cladding and fender arches is designed to help reduce paint chips, and available dealer-installed styled mud flaps can reduce debris spray.

The Mustang Mach-E Rally also wears a rear spoiler that takes inspiration from the Focus RS.

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 should appreciate how this drive mode, combined with the new tires, allows the Mustang Mach-E Rally to perform in snow and other slick off-road conditions, says the automaker.

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.

Inside, there’s a combination of comfort, functionality, and style that ties in with the 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. It takes Mustang where it hasn’t been before — to gravel and dirt roads,” says Jim Farley, president and CEO of Ford. “Inspired by true driving enthusiasts, a driving experience like never before for the pure joy of driving.”

Targeted starting MSRP of the Mustang Mach-E Rally is around $65,000 in the United States, with exact pricing announced closer to launch. The Mustang Mach-E Rally will be available to purchase in early 2024 and deliveries will begin shortly afterward.
