Print photos always make a car look better than it is. They have been taken from all the optimal angles, with just the right illumination, and they are probably going through a lot of finishing. So if you want to know what the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E looks like in reality, you will check out this not very glamorous leaked photo .
On Thursday, Jalopnik published official Ford press images of the Ford Mustang Mach-E 2021 . The car looks beautiful, with the wheels always turning at just the right angle and the light shining ever so subtly on the car's glass and plate.
But what I want to see is how the car looks on pictures that have not been taken and edited by a professional, why this image posted on Ford Mach E Club forum is so enlightening. The car just sits in what looks like a studio, with a white background and not much else to talk about. The wheels are turned straight, and the general photo quality looks OK at best.
I know nothing about the car in the picture. I also don't know much about the picture – who took it, when they took it or where they took it – but The Breaking News Team at VerticalScope, Inc., which owns the Mach E Club forum, informed Jalopnik of its existence. We will continue to try to find out the origin of the image and will update this post if we do.
Even in the unspectacular photo, Mach-E looks pretty good, especially for a crossover. The hood and roofline look aggressive, and the front end gives off some Mustang vibes while maintaining a distinct look.
It seems that Ford did a nice job with the design. Expect to see a lot more non-press photos tomorrow as the car debuts.
