Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide


The Mustang Mach 1 is going to hit the tracks with an expected hyped price of $54,500, exclusive of taxes and packages. However, the rivals will probably remain the same even for the 2022 model, which are the Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack, BMW M2 Competition, and Chevrolet Camaro LT1. Having said that, one of the important aspects will be to gauge the money to value ratio for each of them as this segment demands that excessively.

2022 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Coupe Features

The Mustang Mach 1 is an exclusive unit with no sibling as such, but despite that, it never disappoints you with the level of modifications and accents it comes with. The past has reconciled us with the degree of packages that have been offered to date, and that is going to be the same altogether with a few more extensions. The opportunity to experience packages like the Ford Co-Pilot360, Equipment Group 600A, and Handling Package is nowhere close to getting scrapped it seems as of now. Not just that, the SecuriLock Passive Anti-Theft System and MyKey can also find their space in the undiscovered Mustang Mach 1.

One may even continue to be amazed at its chances to retain the safety prowess for which it has a high reputation in its peers. The Blind Spot Information System, Pre-Collision Assist, and AdvanceTrac will hardly be relegated after leaving such an impact with its predecessor. One can track the coupe’s mobility with a sophisticated Voice-Activated Navigation System with no predictive change most probably. If it is going to continue with those features, then it is evident that it will not negotiate in its interior engagement in any way with its 9-speaker Sound System with Amplifier, SiriusXM Radio, and SYNC 3. It will be interesting to see if these predictions will come true in the future.

Which Trim should you buy?

The Mustang Mach 1 is all alone in the middle of all this flattery chirping. The question that we have to answer is solely related to its credibility, and with no hesitation, it is evident that it will match the expectations that the consumer-end has bet on it. Its predictive abilities in the realm of performance, technology, and feel are no compromise in any sense. The safety nudge is top-notch. Meanwhile, the handling perspective with MagneRide Damping System and a responsive EPAS is another asset that has been bestowed into it. So, we highly recommend you to own it and park it in your garage.

2022 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Release Date

The embossing that Mustang Mach 1 has left on the market makes it one of the most searched coupes, and that is why the enthusiasm regarding its sale and booking is mutual throughout. It is believed that the machinery will be set in production by January 2022, and dealerships will allow the pre-booking by October 2021, but then we have to consider the Covid-19 pandemic going all around the US at the same time. So we can take a buffer of some two or three months in this time period at the least. Hopefully, the deadline is met, and we get to mark the dawn of this purist beast.

2022 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Coupe Engine and Performance

Now comes probably the most interesting aspect of this machinery. It is highly speculative that the 2022 Ford Mustang Mach 1 will be retaining its 5.0L Naturally Aspirated V8 powertrain with which it churns out 480 hp @7,000 RPM of power and 420 lb-ft @4,600 RPM of torque. And if that is true, then it further becomes obvious that it will be then mated to a 6-Speed Manual transmission which is pretty quick in upshift and downshift with Rev-Matching ability. Even the RWD layout can be carried forward for power transfer to the wheels.

This is indicative of the fact that it will be accelerating as its predecessor, with 4.2 seconds and 12.2 seconds for the 0-60 mph mark and quarter-mile.

Though impressive with its suspected powertrain prowess, the Mustang Mach 1 still lags behind the segment leaders like the Chevrolet Camaro LT1 and BMW M2 Competition. But when you view the price tag, the Camaro shines way too affordable for the best figure which gives it a clear edge over all of them by a far mile. Meanwhile, the Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack does manage to grab our attention with its exemplary top speed of more than 200 mph, leaving behind all by more than 40 mph on average. Thus, as per our analysis, the Camaro LT1 seizes the opportunity and limelight here.

2022 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Coupe Fuel Economy

It will be no less than a joke to be aspiring for a high return from a coupe that can thrust a top speed of more than 150 mph. Be it any year, the speculation will only direct us to returns like 14 mpg in the city, 22 mpg on the highways, and an overall economy of 18 mpg by the Mustang Mach 1. Though the numbers are not of interest, it is the range coverage that may entice you to continue reading this section as a 16-gallon fuel tank would allow you to experience the thrust for more than 280 miles on a daily basis, which is pretty impressive. These figures are of the 2021 model, which can be replicated in the 2022 year most probably.

In comparison, the rivals are capable of delivering a little more than what the Mustang Mach 1 can do. The Camaro LT1 leads the pack with its 361 miles range meter, while the Challenger R/T Scat Pack follows it with its 314 miles mark. But it is not fuel economy rather their fuel tank capacities with which they go on to the podiums. As it has been mentioned earlier that this domain has no relevance as per this segment, and that is why we should be avoiding paying heed to all this. 

2022 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Coupe Interior

The Mustang has a rich history of muscle-inspired ambiance, and so is the 2022 Ford Mustang Mach 1 expected to be. There have been too many accents and touch-ups in its predecessor, thus the futuristic developments must be at least in line with those, if not better. The power adjustability with memory function for seats and MyColor ambient lighting all around the cabin are highly anticipated for the upcoming Mustang Mach 1. Along with them, one may even find the standard Dual Zone Front Automatic Air Conditioning for maintaining the temperature threshold and MyKey for easy commanding over other assists. Even the tech-end does not seem to keep the favorites like Remote Start System and 12-Inch LCD Digital Instrument Cluster out of scope for now.

Reasonably decent with its space and nice visibility are some things which we can take for granted in the Mustang Mach 1 irrespective of any model year. Moreover, if it is suspected to follow the 2021 model, then the rear would be also practical for accommodating children quite comfortably. On the other hand, the cargo volume will remain more or less the same figure of 15.2 cu-ft. As far as rivals are concerned, the BMW M2 Competition and Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack are relatively much open to one’s stretching, yet are confined to children only for their rear-rows. Therefore, we would rate them at par in this segment. Some of the features are:

  • Remote Start System
  • Dual-Zone Electronic Automatic Temperature Control
  • MyColor ambient lighting
  • Seat Power Adjustability
  • Memory Function

How intuitive is the 2022 Ford Mustang Mach 1’s infotainment unit?

We highly regard the 2021 Mustang Mach 1 for its generosity in its entertainment package, and that reputation is likely to continue for the upcoming Mustang Mach 1 as well. Features including the 9-speaker sound system with amplifier, SiriusXM Radio, and Track Apps will be continuing their presence with high-probability speculation. The list does entail the Universal Garage Door Opener, SYNC 3, and FordPass Connect in its future predictability. Apart from these, the standard features like the Smart-Charging USB ports and 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot are other generic ones to mention. Some of the features are:

  • SYNC 3
  • FordPass Connect 
  • Universal Garage Door Opener
  • SiriusXM Radio
  • Track Apps 
  • 9-speaker sound system with amplifier

2022 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Coupe Exterior

Much-awaited-machinery for the next year for its sheer performance and exciting exterior styling is the 2022 Ford Mustang Mach 1. If we map the pathway of the 2021 model year, then there are plenty of features which we can find most probably in resemblance in the upcoming Mustang Mach 1 like the Performance Rear Spoiler and Diffuser along with those starring Pony Projection Lights.

 2022 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Coupe 

The boldness and aggression will be retained for sure with its wide front fascia, which is expected to have multiple accents added to the list with the pre-existing ones like the Vinyl Over-the-Top Racing Stripe Ebony with White Accent and Over-the-Top Racing Stripe.

Mustang nameplate is basically a performance demon, so it becomes a prerequisite to have a silhouette that compliments the paperwork. Fortunately, it has always been a gem in this category irrespective of body style, and the 2022 Mustang Mach 1 will be no different. A highly compact design with a relatively smaller wheelbase and lower height translates to its ability to curb the lateral and longitudinal shift without any hassle. The rivals do have somewhat the same scales tagged to their spec sheets, therefore, the analysis drives us to settle down with their parallel capabilities. Some of the features are:

  • Performance Rear Spoiler
  • Rear Diffuser
  • Pony Projection Lights
  • 4.5'' Exhaust Tip Finish
  • Rear-window Defroster
  • LED Sequential Tail Lights

2022 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Coupe Safety

Safety assurance is insurance to add coloring to one’s imagery. The Mustang Mach 1 has certainly achieved that feat in the 2021 model itself, and it is no tough guesswork for us that it will retain that persona for the upcoming model as well. As the Mustang badge has already been able to secure an overall 5-star rating with full marks in all the parameters with a minimal rollover risk of just 9.3%, we can see that coming inherent in the 2022 model also. A high-impact dissipating area with structural resilience is something we have become accustomed to whenever the machinery is brought into mentioning.

Apart from the structural integrity, the active and passive features have been impressive too as per the time scale. The features like the Blind Spot Information System, Cross-Traffic Alert, and AdvanceTrac Electronic Stability Control are the well-established armors that we can assume to ascribe in the 2022 model. Lane Keeping Alert, Reverse Sensing System, and SOS Post-Crash Alert System are the other highly attentive and alert units that enhance its overall appeal and consideration in this domain. Some of the features are:

  • Blind Spot Information System
  • Cross-Traffic Alert
  • AdvanceTrac Electronic Stability Control
  • Reverse Sensing System
  • SOS Post-Crash Alert System

2022 Ford Mustang Mach 1 vs. 2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 

The Mustang Mach 1 and Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack are heavily packed with different assets of their own importance. The latter indeed comes at a relatively affordable rate, and that too with better performance and range coverage, but then that is just a half story of the narrative. The handling and accents can’t be simply overlooked as that is exactly where the Ford Mustang Mach 1 shines out as a class apart phenomenon. The exterior trim options and standard and optional safety packages are also sound in the former. So both of them seem to edge one another in one of the aspects, but it is sheer practicality along with performance that gives the Ford badging a little extra push.

2022 Ford Mustang Mach 1 vs. 2021 Chevrolet Camaro LT1

Probably the cheapest among the rivals yet exceptionally practical with its performance curve and long hauling capabilities, the Chevrolet Camaro LT1 is bang on in the segment. Even the cabin management is pretty much at par with other rivals. All of these within one’s reach is as attractive as it can ever be. This is actually one of those which has the propensity to thwart the Mustang Mach 1 market shares. But it would be unjust to conclude so early as the Mustang might be lagging a bit behind the former, but it does outclass it with its better top speed, road appeal, and safety prowess. Even the braking unit is one of a class of high caliber for the Mustang Mach 1. So, it is really a tough call, and we leave this to the owner's end whichever suits their eyeball.

2022 Ford Mustang Mach 1 vs. 2021 BMW M2 Competition

The BMW M2 Competition can be called the closest rival as it is parallel to the former in almost all the parameters right from the exotic ambiance inside the cabin to the sporty appeal. The charm and figures both match to a large extent. The appearance is more subjective, and preference may favor any of these two depending on one’s taste, but it is those other feature-bound assets that make us realize why these are so heavily charged. Performance, tech-loaded interior engagement, and comfort along with safety nudge, all are available in their milky ways. Thus, we rate them equally desirable irrespective of their price tag.

2022 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Coupe Final Verdict

One may be stuck in a dilemma when exposed to so much exciting speculation all at once. It is true that Chevrolet Camaro is one of a kind regarding its powertrain and relative price tag but mind you that not gauging others holistically will be demeaning the engineering that has been put into their soul. The Mustang Mach 1 is an all-rounder as it gets all the possible touches right from the exterior appeal to interior accent to the entertainment unit. Adding to that, safety is just on another level and a benchmark to follow. Equivalently impressive driving and handling are also at its disposal. So it is definitely on the top of our cart.
