The Mustang Mach 1 is known as a staple to the American muscle fleet of Ford with its initial debut in August 1968. Ford is happy with the return of the Mustang Mach 1 for 2021, featuring a 480-horsepower 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V8. In a recent YouTube video, legendary car collector and American television host Jay Leno put the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 to the test with Ford’s VP of Marketing Jim Owens in the passenger seat. Although the Mustang Mach 1 offers a traditional 6-speed manual transmission, Jay Leno opts to test the 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission.
The state-of-the-art transmission allows for the vehicle to select the optimal gear by learning the driver’s driving patterns and habits. Along with the new smart shifting technology, Jay expresses his love for the new steering feel while laying down the power throughout the test drive. The full walk-through includes a breakdown of all the new features added to the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1.
