FORD BRONCO AND MUSTANG MACH-E SPOTTED AT SHELBY AMERICAN – WHAT’S NEXT?

We Figure It’s Only A Matter Of Time Before Shelby Upgrades These Two Ford SUVs

Shelby American is not an unknown staple for creating some jaw-dropping versions of already spectacular Ford Motor Company vehicles. Primarily when it comes to giving both the Ford F-150 and Mustang ungodly amounts of horsepower. However, we could see something radically different soon. Thanks to the Mach-E Forum having shared photos of someone spotting both a Ford Mustang Mach-E GT and a Bronco in Shelby American, we can speculate what’s next to come from the racing legends workshop. Take note that both the Mach-E GT and Ford Bronco are manufacturer plates.

 Shelby American Ford Bronco And Mustang Mach-E?

The power behind the wheel of the Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition is already substantial with 480 horsepower and 634 lb-ft of torque sending power to every wheel upon the compression of the gas pedal. All of this power, we’re told, shoots the Ford Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition from 0-60 in 3.5 seconds. These specs are incredible for an SUV. However, we’re not sure if a third party is ready for prime time when it comes to battery performance and tuning.

If Shelby American were to tune the Mustang Mach-E, chances are the company would need help from Ford directly since the performance company is far more accustomed to superchargers rather than charging stations. We could, at first, see a handling package added to the Mach-E along with a body kit from Shelby.

Then there’s the Ford Bronco. We have no doubt that Shelby American is taking a strong look at the viability of upgrading and tuning the reborn SUV icon, but like the Mustang Mach-E, it would be different from what we’re used to seeing from the Nevada-based company. Today, Shelby focuses its entire product lineup on V8 engines. A Coyote V8 engine is not in the cards for the Ford Bronco, so Shelby American would have to seek out a viable approach for the turbocharged EcoBoost engines the Bronco offers. Turning the boost up would probably be a start. A Shelby Ford Bronco was also recently eluded to in a promotional video.

Perhaps we’ll see what’s next for Shelby American, the Ford Mustang Mach-E and the Ford Bronco at the upcoming 2021 SEMA Show in November.

Zac's love for cars started at a young age, after seeing the popular Eleanor from Gone In 60 Seconds. From there, fascination and enthusiasm blossomed and to this day the Ford Mustang remains a favorite. His first job started out detailing cars, but also provided the opportunity to work on restoration including an 1968 Ford Mustang, Ford Firebird, and a C3 Corvette, though he left that job before further work and experience could be had. From there, he was a detailer at a car dealership before quitting that job to try and finish college.

Much of his free time while studying was spent watching YouTube videos regarding new cars, or off-roading. 4WD247 is a personal favorite channel which rekindled a dying flame in car enthusiasm, now tailored towards trucks and SUVs and the fun that can be had building up an overlanding rig, and going on adventures, though, that chapter remains unwritten for the time being.
