INTERIOR, SOLACE & BAGGAGE
Ford’s work on the 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E interior space takes only small bits of design elements from the regular Mustang. With enough seating for 5 persons, it’s definitely more on utility than for racing down courses and straightaways. The cargo capacity of the Mustang Mach-E stands at around 29.7 cubic feet from behind the rear seat, going further to 59.7 cubic feet if from behind the first row of seats. The front trunk, or frunk, can be used for storage with 4.7 cubic feet of space for smaller items.
The infotainment system of the Ford Mustang Mach-E is operated through a standard 15.5-inch Touchscreen display. SYNC 4A comes included with all trim levels, enabling voice commands and built-in navigation system features. The audio system is composed of a 6-speaker sound setup but can be upgraded to a B&O 9-Speaker and Subwoofer setup with an upgrade to the Premium and GT trim levels. The driver makes use of a 10.2-inch Digital Cluster Screen for tracking various information about their car. They may also make use of the wireless phone charging pad made available on all trim levels.
There are a whole host of safety features and driver-assistive features mounted onto each model of the 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E. Firstly, all models come standard with Ford’s AdvanceTrac system to help them in handling their vehicles in difficult road conditions. Other standard features include the Advanced Security Pack, Individual Tire Pressure Monitors, and a Post-Crash Alert System. Models will also make use of the various features included with the Ford Co-Pilot 360 safety suite, including Forward Sensing Systems and Pre-Collision Assists among other features.
Ford’s warranty coverage plans are always on-par with that of the competition, although there’s not really much to set it apart as well. The Limited warranty plan stands for 3 years or the first 36,000 miles driven. Powertrain warranty lasts for 5 years with a mileage limit of 60,000 miles. All electrical components are covered under warranty for a total of 8 years or the first 100,000 miles driven. The company has yet to offer any plans for complimentary scheduled maintenance.
