2024 Ford Mustang Mach-E Drops GT Performance Edition

When the Ford Mustang Mach-E debuted for the 2021 model year, it did so not only with a high-performance GT variant, but also, a more potent GT Performance Edition option. The GT Performance Edition came equipped not only with more torque and quicker acceleration times, but also, some unique and upgraded features over the base GT, making it the top dog in the EV crossover’s lineup over the past few years. However, sources familiar with the matter have now told Ford Authority that the 2024 Ford Mustang Mach-E GT has dropped the GT Performance Edition option from the lineup.

When it was available, the GT Performance Edition added a variety of upgrades to the EV crossover, including 20-inch machined-faced aluminum wheels with high-gloss Ebony Black-painted pockets, Performance Gray ActiveX seats with unique Miko perforated reflective inserts and Metallic stitching, front row head restraints, a unique aluminum appliqué for the instrument panel, and the MagneRide damping system. The GT Performance Edition also offered more torque than the regular GT – 634 pound-feet versus 600, albeit with the same 480 horsepower.

Now, the 2024 Ford Mustang Mach-E GT has gained all of this equipment as standard, making the GT Performance Edition somewhat obsolete. However, the one big exception is the added torque, which the 2024 Mach-E GT does not offer – however, it is available as an option as part of the new Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Upgrade, and is also standard on the Mach-E Rally.

In addition to this change, the 2024 Ford Mustang Mach-E lineup is receiving some other changes compared to the outgoing 2023 model. For starters, the Premium trim no longer comes with the Panoramic Fixed-Glass Roof as standard, since that feature is now an option. The EV crossover is getting bronze wheels and other features in that finish via the new Bronze Appearance Package, and is gaining the new Rally trim, though it’s also losing the California Route 1 model.

All of these updates are being accompanied by price increases in some cases – including the GT, which is $1,600 pricier than before. Meanwhile, as Ford Authority previously reported, order banks for select 2024 Mach-E trims opened up back in November, though that didn’t include the GT or Rally at that time.

    I own a 2007 c/s. GT and will NEVER OWN an E car. PERIOD! You can take your batteries and shove them back to China where they belong. Don’t forget to vote in November.
