2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition Details Revealed

Sponsored Links

With the regular 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E in production and arriving at dealerships this month, it’s also worth noting that it won’t be long before the Mach-E GT launches as well. Those that want the ultimate version of this ultimate all-electric crossover will be able to opt for the Mach-E GT Performance Edition, and now Ford has given us all the juicy details about this exciting package.

Ford says the Performance Edition will do 0-60 in a targeted 3.5 seconds. Pumping out 480 horsepower (358 kilowatts) and 634 pound-feet of torque (860 newton-meters), The Performance Edition delivers more torque, grip, and better handling by drawing more power from its battery pack and targets an EPA-estimated range of 235 miles.

“We already pushed the envelope by creating an electric vehicle with the pony badge, so it’s only natural that we push it even further,” said Darren Palmer, global director, battery electric vehicles, Ford Motor Company. “Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition not only gives you the added performance you expect from the GT name but accentuates the thrill with the responsiveness of an all-electric powertrain.”

The Performance Edition features a host of additional upgrades as well, including 19-inch front brakes with red-painted Brembo calipers as well as 20-inch machined-face Ebony Black-painted pockets paired with 245/45R20 Pirelli summer tires and MagneRide dampers.

Inside the cabin, the Performance Edition features a set of Performance Gray ActiveX material-covered front seats featuring metallic stitching and unique Miko perforated reflective inserts. The instrument panel is enhanced by a unique aluminum appliqué, while the rear of the vehicle sports a Performance Edition GT badge.

Both Ford Mustang Mach-E GT and Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition models will be available in signature Ford Mustang colors including Cyber Orange Metallic Tri-Coat, Dark Matter Gray Metallic, Rapid Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat, Star White Metallic Tri-Coat, Grabber Blue Metallic, Shadow Black, Iconic Silver Metallic, and Space White Metallic.

Customers who have already reserved the Mustang Mach-E GT will have the opportunity to add the Performance Edition package at the time of ordering in spring 2021. Both the Mustang Mach-E GT and GT Performance Edition will be available late next summer.

  1. I like the MACH E GT and MACH E GT PE best, I just wished Ford could have more range 350-400 would have been a greater selling point for the model

  2. I like the potential of the Mach E. The Problem is Ford hasn’t gone far enough with the Mach E to make it what it really needs to be. The car should rival the Tesla Model S Ludicrous specs of 762hp and the Rival the Taycan Turbo in all out handling and performance and sound along wit being a bit more emotionally engaging inside and out. Given it’s “Mach” name, there should be a bit more look to this vehicle with things like rear spoilers on both the roof and the decklid, unique hood, side splitters, more aggressive front end, better wheel options, rear diffuser, flared fenders (slightly), more exciting interior, Recaro seats, alcantara, surfaces, sunroof, heated windshield glass, performance gauges and things like that. Being that it is a performance model it should have some type of sound and being that it is kin to an American performance Icon, the sound should emulate the emotions of its heritage. I’m not saying give it a fake V8 sound, but something that has a deep organic grumble to it but still in the way of an electric vehicle. It shouldn’t sound exotic, it should sound natural. While a hood scoop would do nothing for the induction of the car since the engine is electric, it could be routed to brake ducts to cool the larger front Brembo brakes and a hood spoiler would add to the aerodynamics of the car. Nothing gaudy or outlandish but things that separate it from the non performance oriented variants of the Mach E. The vehicle should have a 320mi range and that’s that. Oh, and a cool idea for the Mach E exterior sound delivery system, tuned pipes that exit from the rear of the car, similar to idea of how a pipe organ or megaphone has an effect on the sound coming from the source. Tuned resonance chambers and tubes affect speakers like a subwoofer enclosure. Borla said it best “Acoustically Tuned Applied Kinetics” or “ATAK.” Same concept. The Mach E needs other things that say “performance” and nothing say that better than the right set of wheels. Adv.1 and Dymag have supposedly just released a Carbon fiber Hybrid wheel called the CF.2 which debuted on a Ford GT supercar. Forgeline has just released a Carbon fiber/Forged wheel. Wheels like this might be something that might be an optional Ford Performance wheel package for the Mach E. Ford Truly needs to think a bit outside the box for the Mach E if it’s going to be a game changer in the Electric auto industry and things like this need to be in the forefront of their minds.

    • Not to mention that since it’s proven that Dual Clutch transmissions are ideal for electric powered cars, how about a 5-speed DCT to add to that more natural car feel?

    • Synthesized sound can only go so far…the Mach-E should have an RE range extender, like the BMW i3. There’s space in the frunk for a 5-liter V8 smallblock…

  3. The Ford boys have a LOT of tricks coming for this piece. They haven’t pulled the gun all the way out of the holster just yet. We’ll just have to wait for it!!
