Chevrolet Blazer EV vs. Ford Mustang Mach-E electric SUV comparison

Tesla is currently not the only competitor in the race for electric vehicle domination. The 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E is selling even more quickly than the company can produce it, surpassing the Mustang with a gasoline engine. But when new possibilities from the automobile sector arrive, the Mach-E no longer has the market to itself. The 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV, which will be on sale in the summer of 2023, marks General Motors’ official entry into the inexpensive EV market.

The Blazer EV appears to have what it takes to overtake Chevy’s Detroit competitor in terms of sales thanks to its wide selection of trim levels, which includes a sporty SS trim to compete with the Mach-E GT. How do the Mach-E and Blazer EV compare on paper?

Exterior Design: Electric Icons

Ford received a lot of backlash when it gave an electric crossover the Mustang moniker, but many of the Mach-aesthetic E’s cues appear to fit on a two-door sports car. The three-piece taillights are designed to look much like the traditional Mustang, but the headlights are sleek and menacing. Depending on the wheels, certain Mach-E trim levels look better than others, but we really appreciate the powerful GT model and the exclusive Ice White Edition.

The Blazer EV boasts futuristic accents like a full-length LED light bar that also communicates the level of charge and powerful front-fender extractor vents that make it seem comparable to the existing gas-powered vehicle, which has previously been compared to a Camaro SUV.

Interior Design: Tale Of The Tech

The Mach-cabin E’s may be Ford’s nicest in a very long time (not counting Lincoln). It impresses with a sizable 15.5-inch touchscreen that is vertically positioned in the middle and a compact 10-inch screen that shows the speed and other essential information in front of the driver. The arrangement of the cabin seems incredibly open, with plenty of storage and an airy glass roof that, though, cannot be opened or provided with a shade. The materials all seem appropriate for the price and would not seem out of place in a luxury vehicle.

Ford kept things simpler, while Chevy made a daring interior design choice. All trims include a massive 17.7-inch touchscreen as standard equipment, along with an 11-inch touchscreen and an optional head-up display.

Range & Performance: SS vs GT

Some combinations of the 2022 Mach-E are not presently available for ordering because Ford has sold out of stock. Ford provides the Mach-E with two distinct battery packs (68 kWh usable and 88 kWh usable), each available with rear-drive or all-wheel drive, when all trims are taken into consideration. The GT has 480 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque, while the Standard Range pack and RWD’s least powerful model makes 266 horsepower and 317 lb-ft (634 lb-ft in the GT Performance Edition). According to Ford, the GT can reach 60 mph in 3.8 seconds (3.5 in Performance guise). On the low end, the Mach-range E’s is 211 miles, while the California Route 1 stretch is 305 miles.

Although we don’t yet know all of the Blazer’s specifications, including battery sizes, we do have some general range predictions. The RS has a maximum range of 320 miles compared to the standard 1LT’s 247 miles per charge. Only the SS’s performance data is available; its two electric motors provide 557 horsepower and 648 lb-ft of torque. Chevy claims that the WOW (Wide Open Watts) mode will provide a 0-60 time under four seconds, presumably bridging the gap between the two GT variants. There will be GM’s hands-free Super Cruise technology, which we value over Ford’s Blue Cruise.

Pricing & Verdict: A Tight Race

Again, Ford doesn’t presently have all Mach-E trims in stock, but the base Select trim’s price is $43,895. The Premium upgrade costs $48,775 while the CA Route 1 with the greatest range costs $52,450. The price of the powerful GT is $61,995 (with an additional $6,000 for the Performance Edition).

At $44,995 and $47,595, respectively, the standard Blazer EV 1LT and 2LT won’t be less expensive than the Mach-E, but they’ll have a greater range and perhaps more internal space. At $51,995, the RS is nearly as expensive as the California Route 1. The SS is most comparable to the GT in terms of sheer acceleration, although it is somewhat more costly, beginning at $65,995. It seems obvious that Ford and GM are set to engage in another of their legendary confrontations, but this time, neither the Camaro nor a genuine Mustang will be present.
