The online configurator features the estimated delivery times for each model
The electric crossover received a significant price increase for the 2023 model-year
A number of changes are also made to the model’s equipment
Due to the ongoing component shortages and other production constraints in the automotive industry, it can take up to six months to receive a new Ford Mustang Mach-E.
The electric crossover has proved popular since its introduction and it appears Ford is still having difficulties building enough of them to meet the demand, despite a reduction in the waiting times.
Indeed, the 2022 model year had been cut short by Ford due to the production rate not being able to keep up with the demand and thus creating long wait times for customers.
The online configurator for the 2023 model-year version recently went live in the United States and on it are the estimated delivery times for each version.
Interestingly, every trim level in the US is expected to take between 18 and 22 weeks to make it to its owners after they have secured their order except the Premium models, which can take up to two weeks longer.
The company doesn’t offer an explanation for this discrepancy, but it could be related to the batteries since the Premium models equipped with the Extended Range battery gain 13 miles (21 kilometres) of range in 2023, for a total of 290 miles (467 kilometres).
The 2023 model year will not only bring slightly reduced waiting times and a longer range since it also sees the contents of some trim levels being shuffled and a number of new paint colours being added.
For example, the Ford Co-Pilot 360 suite of driver assistance systems is now standard on every model while the BlueCruise system is available for a 90-day trial period, as is the 360-degree camera system.
In addition, the GT and GT Performance models replace their black-painted roof with the newly standard panoramic glass roof.
The GT Performance, as well as the Extended-Range Premium model, can be ordered with the new Nite Pony Package that includes a number of black accents for the exterior and the interior.
Furthermore, the California Route 1 Edition is now available only with the dual motor all-wheel drive powertrain. Interestingly, this model used to be offered only in rear-wheel drive until Ford added the AWD option in 2022.
These changes aren’t free however since the 2023 Mustang Mach-E carries a higher price than last year in the United States, with an increase varying between $6,000 and $8,500 depending on the trim level and powertrain.
