“This Ford Doesn’t Look Like a Ford!” Ep 3 2021 Mustang Mach-E Hoist and Suspension Review

It is not too often that Sandy is completely flabbergasted when looking underneath a vehicle.  In this episode of Munro Live, Sandy’s first words were, “This doesn’t look like a Ford”, which is his parlance is meant to convey shock and awe – Ford seems to have made a quantum leap in engineering.

From precision fitting heavy-duty brakes, semi-solid castings, a great craddle design, interesting things hidden around and motor and battery case… this is a must watch video.

Sandy is in-fact so impressed that he might just buy one of these and tear it apart to analyze it completely!
