Indeed, those look like heat shields.

Mounts are SUPER sensitive to heat, and there’s lots of that going around in any engine bay.

Lucky for this mid-engine Corvette, the “fan blast” heat that comes through the radiators isn’t filling the engine compartment as it would be on a front-engine car. But you’ve still got Read more

I like the Mach-E. I really do. All the complainers about the name seem to forget that the Mustang name has been attached to far worse (and less Mustangy) cars than this in the past. It’s not like Mustang is some hallowed name that can only be bestowed upon the most refined performance machines. For every GT350, Read more

Count me in the “they shouldn’t have called it a Mustang” camp. This devalues the Mustang brand. Read more

This looks SO BAD. It’s just terrible. Overly minimalist for no good reason, overly plain to the point of boring and looking underdeveloped.

Because that ignore the fundamental way that people buy cars.

When purchasing a vehicle, a major consideration isn’t about what someone will do, but about what they COULD do, and about how they want to look (not) doing it.

Model E is not authentic Mustang.  No interest in knowing anything about it until Ford changes the name.

I agree, this car would have gotten lots of press attention without the Mustang name; it’s really the first mass-market USDM competitor to entry-level Teslas. Read more

I get using the Mustang name to sell this anonymous blob, but it will forever come off as cynical and desperate. This should have been called a Thunderbird and it should have been given some actual styling, inside and out. Read more

I hate, Hate, HATE enormous flat panel displays inside cars. I’m trying to drive, not watch a movie. I don’t need this much screen acreage. Read more

Judging by the press this thing is getting, calling it a Mustang isn’t driving any sales, is leading to unreasonable performance expectations, and is diluting the Mustang brand. Read more

I hear you but I bet the novelty would wear off very quickly. You don’t just hear those sounds, you *feel* them in a way that speakers aren’t going to replicate. Also, unless someone puts a lot of effort into simulating the feel of shifts and torque curves matched with the sounds, they won’t track what you’re Read more

As a lifelong Ford fan, they definitely aren’t marketing this electric vehicle to me with the name they gave it. I guess adding sounds that remind me of their other car was an attempt to convince me such transgressions were okay. To me, they aren’t. Read more

By far and away the most facepalm thing about the car. How tame DT made this thing sound in every other way was the best thing about it. Get this shit out of here.

Totally agree. I get making Mustang it’s own “sub brand” for sports cars for Ford as that seems to be happening with popular nameplates, but to slap it on this was nearly as dumb as GM blowing the Blazer nameplate on its middle-sausage CUV
