In this episode of Munro Live, Sandy and Munro’s president Cory Steuben go through the suspension and high voltage wiring of the Ford Mach-E.
Cory, who is an expert in suspensions at Munro, gives us a walkthrough of all of his findings on this Vehicles suspension, giving the rear link suspension an A, but not and A+ for a cost and performance perspective, only for the fact that one of the links is not straight, which means you can’t choose the most efficient cost manufacturing method due to the fact that the bend in the one link requires the operator to have to weld the piece again in order to maintain structural integrity to compensate for the extra loads being exerted on that piece.
From rear to front suspension and the HV wiring surounding it, this is quite an information packed video. So if you are an engineering student looking to get a great insight into how suspension “should” be made as well as some deep insight into the HV wiring and design choices that Ford made on this vehicle, you NEED to watch this whole episode through.
Well, here we are at episode 4 of the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Review and all we can say is wow! Sandy and the team are not easily impressed, but the Mustang Mach-E is definitely an impressive car. Sandy even exclaims that, “From a suspension standpoint: If I gave Tesla an A, this would get an A+, and the reason for that is because they are so simple and so inexpensive, and they’re doing the job!”
From the hallow cast cradles to a mysterious reservoir and something Sandy is calling the T-Rex bar, there are lot’s of interesting finds under this car, including the fact that Ford has made this battery very easy to drop out and change – great for serviceability but also allows for battery quick change is that business model pans out in the future.
But to get the full details you have to watch the show:
In this week’s episode, Sandy Munro compares the Cybertruck with conventional trucks on the market in relation to front and rear suspension, air ride, and active damping to make assumptions about utility, comfort, and performance.
What suspension geometry is Cybertruck going to use and why? What are some unique possibilities for dynamic ride height adjustment that air suspension opens up for the Cybertruck? How will active damping affect the overall feel of the Cybertruck and the absence of a solid rear axle in favor of independent rear suspension and air springs? All of these questions are covered in this weeks episode which can be watched here:
Just a reminder, Munro has reports on these types of truck comparisons and much more. If you are interested in finding out more about the Tesla Model 3 or Y or how the top 10 EV Motors on the market compare with each other, then you should click on the above or contact us at email@example.com.
