Chicago Auto Show Ford Booth

Kicking off major auto shows for 2020, the Chicago Auto Show media days began this week, and America’s brand came to show off! In addition to showcasing a wide range of 2020 production models, Ford debuted their much-anticipated 2021 Mustang Mach-E all-electric SUV, as well as the shockingly sexy GT supercar. Read on to learn about the first reimagining of the Mustang in 55 years, and be sure to keep up with Mike Murphy Ford throughout the rest of the year for more upcoming model releases!

Ford Teases a Release Date for the Debut 2021 Mustang Mach-E

The 2021 Mustang Mach-E is ready for its close-up, and just about ready for a driveway to call home. Available only as a four-door SUV prepared to seat five, the Mustang Mach-E is quickly proving to be every bit as strapping as its predecessors, while still managing to achieve an impressive EPA-estimated 300-mile range with the available extended range battery and rear-wheel drive. Ford was quite forthcoming with model specs, making sure drivers who want a little extra oomph know they can opt for the Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition, which will achieve:

  • 459 HP
  • 612 lb-ft of torque
  • 0-60 in the mid-3 second range

Ford also announced that the 2021 Mustang Mach-E is set to be available in Fall 2020, and interested shoppers can already reserve and design their SUV! You will be able to confirm your order as early as Summer 2020, so contact Mike Murphy Ford to pre-order.

FordPass Accommodes Drivers with Electric Vehicles

The rapidly growing interest in electric vehicles has previously left drivers wondering if there are enough charging stations to accommodate their needs. Ford quickly curbed that concern and is equipping drivers with their FordPass™ Charging Network, which offers 12,000 public charging stations and 35,000 plugs in North America. What’s more, drivers who purchase a Mustang Mach-E will have the advantage of 2 years of complimentary access to the network. Plus, their network includes Electrify America DC fast chargers, which have the ability to add an estimated 47 miles of range in just 10 minutes.

Ford’s booth displayed a healthy range of production models for auto enthusiasts to explore, including:

  • Explorer
  • F-150
  • Fusion

It’s hard to top the excitement of a debut model at an auto show, but the Mustang Mach-E wasn’t the only car to drop jaws. Ford also brought out the undeniably sexy 2020 GT, which showed off a Liquid Carbon exterior, and boasted a cap of up to 660 hp–all the power and swagger you want and expect from a supercar.

Of course, the Ford booth had a few auto show staples, like the Built Ford Tough Chicago Bears F-150, and the much-beloved (or reviled?) Hank the Robot (their interactive robot that answers questions from the audience!).
