Only thing I dislike is the front grille. I'm sure the aftermarket will take care of that.

I see Ford put the 2020 base model GT500 “swing” (spoiler-wing) on the Mach:

Looks super sharp to me... Much better looking effort than 2003-2004. And I like the grille quite a bit, in the spirit of the 1969 grille-mounted lamps, but subtle (which I like).

Also glad that they didn't "force" a shaker scoop onto it, because it wouldn't have looked right on this car.

VERY nice... That, with a TVS and tune, would be one helluva vehicle.. And it could be done with a CLUTCH.

Gears are turning.. :)

I was expecting a naturally aspirated 5.2 with a cross planed crank... like a non-assist GT500.

Would've been cool if they put a performance version of the new 7.3L V8 in it for a 445 Cobra Jet :p

They should have made the fake lights in the grill, real fog lights.
“two large intakes are integrated into the grille that cool the engine and transmission oil.”

Also:

“In the Mach 1, the 5.0-liter V-8 pumps out 480 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque—the same output as the Steve McQueen–inspired Bullitt—and comes standard with the six-speed manual transmission from the Shelby GT350, now with rev matching, although a 10-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters is available.”

Anyone notice the seats are different from the white car to the blue car?

I can only assume there will be a track focused seat like Recaros and a base seat just like what is found in the 350 and 500.

Looks good.

Agree with the comments on the fog lights. They could have gotten really creative with that rather than leaving them blank. Something the aftermarket will take care of, I suppose.

Rims are meh. The blue car draws on the 5 spoke but they look too plain. The rims on the white car look almost too generic current trend style. If you're going to do a wheel and sticker package....

Good call on the auto, I guess. Things are going that way....there are still Bullitt's sitting in lots; having an auto could be the deciding factor...especially the really nice 10-spd.

The Bullitt, iirc, was not much of a premium over a PP2 Mustang, so these should still sell well.
