Ford Mustang Mach-E GT To Feature Backlit Pony Logo

While 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E deliveries have already begun, we’re still anxiously awaiting the performance version of the electric crossover – the Ford Mustang Mach-E GT, which is currently scheduled to launch later this summer. And when it does, the Mach-E GT will come with a very unique feature – a backlit pony logo.

From what we know, this will be the very first illuminated emblem on a Ford vehicle, and it will only be available on the Ford Mustang Mach-E GT, according to Ford spokesperson Emma Berg. It’s also certain to make the Mach-E GT stand out even more than the regular Mach-E, particularly at night.

Ford says that the Mach-E GT will produce 480 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque, which will enable it to do 0-60 in 3.8 seconds. Meanwhile, the GT Performance Edition, which produces 480 horsepower and 634 pound-feet of torque, will accelerate to 60 miles-per-hour from a standstill in just 3.5 seconds. The Performance Edition delivers more torque by drawing more power from its battery pack and targets an EPA-estimated range of 235 miles -slightly less than the Mach-E GT’s projected range of 250 miles.

Both the GT and GT Performance Edition put that power to the ground using Ford’s electric all-wheel-drive (eAWD) system. The GT comes equipped with 20-inch cast-aluminum wheels with aero covers, while the Performance Edition wears 20-inch machined-face Ebony Black-painted wheels wrapped with 245/45R20 Pirelli summer tires and MagneRide dampers.

Inside the cabin, the Mach-E GT comes with Black Onyx ActiveX seats with Miko inserts and copper metallic stitching and piping. The Performance Edition features Performance Gray ActiveX seats with metallic stitching and unique Miko perforated reflective inserts and a unique aluminum appliqué for the instrument panel.

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.

We’ll have more on the Mach-E very soon, so be sure and subscribe to Ford Authority for more Mustang Mach-E news and ongoing Ford news coverage.

    Wow! A back lit logo. Now I see why this vehicle has taken so long to hit the market. This work-from-home engineering is amazing! I’m going down now to place my order.

    What a sad place to work this must be for employees who like AUTOMOBILES. FOMOCO has become nothing but a truck company. This decision to abandon automobiles is going to come back to bite them in the butt so hard. When the automobile (coupe & sedans) market comes back, Ford’s customers will be long gone.

    The way Ford’s product launches are going, there probably will be a second recall in a few months for excessive battery drain or grille fires or something.
    This Mexico-sourced 4-door sedan needed something more to differentiate it from authentic American Mustangs. I’m all in favor of a move away from ICE vehicles, just not a trashy abomination of one of their few iconic nameplates. Besides, Mach is a number. I wouldn’t by Bolt either, if gm (they use lower case in their logo now) called it the Corvette LS-E. Get it?? “E,” like a backwards “3.”

    Ford sold an accessory back-lit Mustang emblem for 1965 and 1966 Mustangs. You can find them on eBay from time to time. I think they may even be reproduced. So, this is by no means the “first” or big time news.

    Has anyone heard any details on when Ford should be contacting for ordering the GT? Someone said April but not sure if that’s still legit.
