Ford Hikes Prices Of 2023 Mustang Mach-E By As Much As $8,300

Ford today announced that it is reopening order books for the Mustang Mach-E with the introduction of the 2023 model year vehicle. Largely the same from an equipment standpoint (albeit, with a few updates), the biggest difference between the 2022 model and 2023 is the pricing.

MSRPs for the all-electric SUV have risen by as much as $8,300 for the coming year. The biggest difference will be felt by customers looking to buy a 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E California Route 1, which now costs $63,575 (excluding destination fee) and is available exclusively in AWD, which accounts for part of the lofty price hike.

Ford is hardly alone in raising prices for new vehicles, with EV manufacturers all over America increasing MSRPs for this coming year. For its part, the blue oval blames material costs for the rising prices.

“Ford is adjusting the MSRP on the Mustang Mach-E due to significant material cost increases, continued strain on key supply chains, and rapidly evolving market conditions, and will continue to monitor pricing across the model year,” the automaker said. “The adjusted MSRP will go into effect for new orders placed starting Tuesday. Customers who have existing, unscheduled 2022 Model Year orders will receive a private offer to convert to a 2023 Model Year.”

Fortunately, not all price are increasing by quite as much. The base model Mustang Mach-E, the Select trim, will start at $46,895, up $3,000 from 2022. Early adopters, though, were apparently the savviest, because that price was already up $1,000 from the 2021 model.

The 2023 Mustang Mach-E Premium, meanwhile, starts at $54,975, which $5,875 more than the trim started at in 2022 (which again, was $1,000 more than it started at in 2021). The GT trim, meanwhile, now starts at $69,895, which is $7,900 more than it did a year ago.

New Features And Packages For 2023

In addition to adding dollars to the price, though, Ford has also added some new features. Co-Pilot360 Driver Assist Technology, for instance, is now standard across the entire lineup and the BlueCruise hands-free driving assistant is now available as a complimentary 90-day-trial for owners of certain models.

The Mustang Nite Pony package, meanwhile, (an $800 option) is now available for the Premium trim and comes with high-gloss black 19-inch wheels, black front and rear lower fascia, door cladding, and mirror caps. Also available on the GT trim, it adds 20-inch wheels and black GT badges.

The panoramic fixed-glass roof is now standard on the GT and the GT Performance Edition model, replacing the black painted roof. New colors, meanwhile, grace the lineup, with Carbonized Gray Metallic and Vapor replacing Dark Matter Gray Metallic, and Blue Silver Metallic.

For those undeterred by the pricing increases, order banks for the 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E open on August 30.
