Ford Mustang Mach-E becomes truck in controversial rendering

Following the imminent premiere of the revived Ford Bronco, the Mustang Mach-E is probably the most anticipated vehicle on the Blue Oval’s debut dock. Since the company is already planning to build both an electric F-150 and a unibody truck under the Ranger, the YouTube channel SRK Designs is up to all these things to make a Mach-E pickup.

The video goes through the whole process of converting Mach-E from a crossover to a pickup. Starting near the C-pillar, the artist slices off the hatch to create the rough shape of the cargo bed. The back also gets an extension beyond the shoulder to add functionality.

To fine-tune the look, SRK Designs lifts the suspension and adds more robust-looking wheels. There is now also a stylish bar over the bed. To our eyes, it’s probably the worst part of the revised design, as the work just seems to float there and does not fit the rest of the vehicle’s aesthetic.

The chances of a Mach-E pickup happening in the real world are quite low, at least for the foreseeable future. The electric F-150 is Ford’s attempt to test the waters to see if there is a market for an EV truck. This one would be much smaller and appeal to a different audience.

Mach-E arrives at showrooms before the end of the year. The rear, rear-wheel drive model delivers 266 horsepower (198 kilowatts) and 317 pounds (430 Newton-meters). The extended range, rear drive version drives output to 290 hp (216 kW) and 317 lb-ft. The standard AWD variant has 266 hp and 428 lb-ft (580 Nm), and the extended range AWD model has 346 hp (258 kW) and 428 lb-ft.
