The order books for the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 are officially open. Naturally, Ford has also revealed the price tag for its latest Mustang variant, which turns out to be a pretty good deal.
Ford has established the base price of the Mustang Mach 1 at $52,915, including a $1,195 destination charge. Despite releasing the base price, Ford isn’t disclosing pricing on its optional features, which includes a Handling Package that’s available with the Tremec six-speed transmission. This package adds a number of features from the now dead GT350 and still-living GT500 models.
Mach 1 buyers will have a few other options to choose from as well, including an optional 10-speed automatic transmission that costs $1,595 in the GT.
At the $52,915 price point, the Mach 1 is slotted right between the GT and the outgoing GT350. While that’s where we expected the Mach 1 to be positioned, given the starting price of the GT350 is just north of $60,000, it does seem like Ford is airing on the conservative side with the Mach 1 price tag.
Of course, one big distinction between the new Mach 1 and the now dead GT350 is the engine. There’s no cool Voodoo V-8 under the Mach 1’s hood. Instead, it is making do with the GT’s 5.0-liter V-8 that’s had the GT350’s intake manifold. The combination is good for 480 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque.
