Ford Mustang Mach-E GT enters production in a few weeks

Ford Mustang Mach-E GT deliveries in the U.S. will begin on time or perhaps sooner than the announced date of fall 2021. Ford is sending out build dates to customers who have ordered the Mach-E GT in the country, as per a forum post on MachEClub.com.

Forum member HarrySiii has posted a screenshot of an email from Ford stating July 12 as the scheduled production date for a particular Mustang Mach-E GT order. Ford may have scheduled Mustang Mach-E GT SOP in the coming weeks.

Exterior

Ford offers the Mustang Mach-E GT in standard trim and a Performance Edition, with the latter packing extra oomph over the standard car. The GT variant sports a Carbonized Gray grille with an illuminated pony badge, red brake calipers, and GT series badging in both the trims.

The Mustang Mach-E GT has 20-inch cast-aluminum wheels with Aero Cover, which look undeniably bizarre, in our opinion. The Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition has 20-inch machined-face Ebony Black-painted aluminum wheels that look quite attractive and suit the performance theme of the variant. Moreover, these wheels come wrapped in 245/45R20 Pirelli summer tires, unavailable on the standard GT.

All the six color options of the standard variant – Dark Matter Gray Metallic, Shadow Black, Iconic Silver Metallic, Space White Metallic, Rapid Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat, and Star White Metallic Tri-Coat – are available for the GT variant. Additionally, the color palette includes the Grabber Blue Metallic option of the sold-out First Edition and an exclusive Cyber orange Metallic Tri-Coat option.

Performance

The Ford Mustang Mach-E GT is available with only the extended-range (ER), 88 kWh battery pack. While the ER battery pack is available in the regular Mustang Mach-E, the specially tuned two motors generating 480 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. (GT)/634 lb.-ft. (GT Performance Edition) of torque are exclusive to the GT. A 0-60 mph sprint takes just 3.8 seconds (GT)/3.5 seconds (GT Performance Edition).

Stopping power comes from bigger brakes, 19-inch ventilated discs at the front, and 19-inch solid discs at the rear. The GT Performance Trim takes exclusivity a step ahead with 385-millimeter front rotors with (red-painted) Brembo-branded calipers. It includes the MagneRide Damping System for improved handling performance as well.

Ford targets an EPA-estimated range of 250 miles for the Mustang Mach-E GT and 235 miles for the Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition.
