DEARBORN, Mich., Dec. 16, 2020 – Edmunds has named the Ford Mustang Mach-E and Ford F-150 as Edmunds Top Rated Luxury EV and Edmunds Top Rated Truck of 2021, respectively.
Edmunds Editor-in-Chief Alistair Weaver praised Mustang Mach-E for its attention to luxury interior details while boasting the performance inherent to the Mustang name.
“The Mach-E has a lot in common with similarly priced EVs, but it’s the vehicle’s attention to detail that makes it stand out,” said Alistair Weaver, editor-in-chief at Edmunds. “The luxury component truly comes from its upscale interior materials and attractive central touchscreen. It also combines driving fun worthy of the Mustang name with an EPA-estimated range of 270 miles1 and 346 horsepower2 [Premium with extended-range battery and electric all-wheel drive]. The Ford Mustang Mach-E offers guilt-free performance and pleasing luxury at an attainable price, and that’s why it’s our pick this year for Edmunds Top Rated Luxury EV.”
Weaver said on top of several impressive attributes, F-150 stood out in its class because of the extensive options it offers for truck customers looking for a tailor-made pickup.
“The Ford F-150 has numerous bragging rights with impressive towing, max payload and with an EPA-estimated rating of 25 mpg city/26 mpg highway/25 mpg combined3,” Weaver said. “But we believe its true strength rests in the extensive and varied options that allow shoppers to get a truck tailored to their needs. With the F-150, Ford displays a clear understanding of the changing needs and wants of truck customers, and for that and many other reasons, it deserves the title of Edmunds Top Rated Truck this year.”
