    Since Ford is not renewing the GT350 for 2021 could we see the new Mach 1 with the 5.2 flat plane engine and the tremec 6 speed transmission? Whats your thoughts on the new Mach 1 and what would you like to see it come with. I do not want to see it as a Bullitt make over, but a whole new design.

    I would love to see it with a 5.2 whether its a FPC or just an N/A version of the predator but feel like there is a 99% chance its just gonna be a lame bullitt

    If its a 428 Super Cobra Jet I would get one. Oh, and offered with a MANUAL transmission.

    If they follow the path if the 03-04 I could see it being a N/A Predator 5.2L. The 03-04 were N/A DOHC 4.6Ls.

    Pretty sure the Mach is getting the Bullitt engine. I’d like a cross plane crank DI 5.2 with maybe 500-515hp to be in it, but I doubt it’ll happen. I’m still happy the Mach is returning, long over due.


    Pick your poison.

    my guess is this. I feel like the flat plane crank will stay to the GT350. It won't be worthy of the price tag from anything I've seen/heard so far.

    I just hope it gets the shelby front end. The only reason I don't have a Bullitt now is that hideous 18-20 front end.

    Maybe Ford swings for the fences and releases the Mach 1 in electric form alongside the Mach E.


    Might take away some of the sting

    I hate you for even suggesting that. LOL. But.....don't put it past Ford to go in that direction. Hope not.

    The new front grille reminds me or the 2013 Boss 302 grille. If this is a limited edition car do you think it may come with the 6 speed tremec transmission?

    I wish it would come with a tremec, but if the idea is to keep cost lower than the gt350 i see it comming with an MT82.

    Is the rollbar going to be standard or with a track pack option?

    Maybe the make the 6 speed tremec transmission as a add on cost. Would you buy it if the cost was the same price as the 10 speed automatic around $1,100.00. They should have some tremec leftover from the GT350 program.

    Ford over plays the hype game. I'm just hardened to it all anymore.

    Highly doubt it. Ford always has a bar in development, and press driven prototype cars.

    Im sure there are left over trans but im sure its for warranty replacements. I dought the supply is big enough for a run of mach 1s, plus ford will not give 2 manual options. It will be a 10speed auto and more than likely mt82

    No way a T-56 will be used.

    At this point they are wringing everything out of the new 5.0 engines... not much left on the table

    Maybe they lighten it up somehow?

    Looks like it is getting the GT350 manual transmission.
