Ford Mustang Mach-E Becomes Truck In Controversial Rendering
After the imminent premiere of the resurrected Ford Bronco, the Mustang Mach-E is probably the most anticipated vehicle on the first record of the Blue Oval. With the company already planning to build both an electric F-150 and a monohull truck under the Ranger, the SRK Designs YouTube channel is mixing all of these things together to make a Mach-E pickup.
The video goes through the whole process of converting the Mach-E from a crossover to a pickup. Starting close to the C-pillar, the artist cuts the tailgate to create the raw shape of the cargo bed. The rear also gets an extension beyond the axle to add functional utility.
To refine the look, SRK Designs lifts the suspension and adds more robust wheels. There is also now a stylish bar above the bed. In our eyes, this is probably the worst part of the revised design, because the part just seems to float there and does not match the rest of the vehicle’s aesthetics.
The chances of a Mach-E pickup occurring in the real world are fairly low, at least for the foreseeable future. The electric F-150 is Ford’s effort to test the waters to see if there is a market for an EV truck. It would be much smaller and appeal to a different audience.
The Mach-E arrives in the exhibition halls before the end of the year. The base rear-drive model produces 266 horsepower (198 kilowatts) and 317 pound-feet (430 Newton meters). The wide-range, rear-wheel drive version pushes power to 290 hp (216 kW) and 317 lb-ft. The standard AWD variant has 266 hp and 428 lb-ft (580 Nm), and the wide-range AWD model has 346 hp (258 kW) and 428 lb-ft.
