It’s a name that hasn’t been seen on the side of a Mustang since the last one featured it 17 years ago: Mach 1. No, not Mach-E — that’s the electric SUV that Ford decided to christen with the Mustang name in order to drum up some support. This Mach 1 is the real deal: the ultimate 5.0-liter ’Stang for people who aren’t yet ready to splurge on that $62,000 Shelby GT350, but who want something a bit more special and nostalgia-inducing than a simple V-8 GT with all the various (and highly capable) Performance Pack options.
