What’s the Mach-E Sound Like?
Ford’s Mach-E was built from the passion and heritage of the classic Mustangs and transformed into a vehicle that’s new and exciting. One key thing car enthusiasts enjoy about sports cars is their distinctive sound while driving. Electric vehicles are seemingly silent. A silent sports car just didn’t fit the bill for Ford. The Mustang sound has been a part of its legacy, and I don’t think Ford wanted to lose that. They needed to create a futuristic propulsion noise that enhances the driving experience and adds some muscle. The Mustang Mach-E may be electric, but it still produces a Mustang and sports car-worthy sound. The Ford Team worked with sound engineers to create a sound that combined its futuristic design with classic V8 muscle.
It doesn’t sound exactly like a V8, but you can hear an engine rumble from beneath you. To me, it sounds futuristic while keeping its authenticity of a low rumble. It feels new while still being familiar. The sound comes through the interior speakers with a low, gentle rumble with a hint of contemporary flow and influence. For some reason, the first thing that popped into my head while listening to Mach-E was Tron because of the powerful, electric motorcycles, but that’s beside the point. It was very smooth during its quick acceleration and you don’t have to hear the cracks and pops of traditional muscle cars. There are three different drive modes, whisper, engage, and unbridled to match your mood. These sounds are adjustable depending on which drive mode you are in. I haven’t found anything about turning these sounds off, but it could be a possibility. The man-made sound evokes our soul and emotions while driving which sets it apart from its competitors. Ford has brought the wild futuristic ideas of an electric sports car to life in 2021.
