Ford Opens “Ordering Window” for 2021 Mustang Mach-E GT and GT Performance Edition
The Ford Mustang Mach-E has been digging into Tesla’s market share since its initial release in December 2020 and according to Ford’s 2021 first-quarter sales report, a total of 6,614 vehicles bearing the Mache-E badge were sold. The Mach-E has been selling fairly well and is displaying healthy sales numbers that are projected to increase during the second and third quarters of 2021. Very recently, Ford announced that is it now taking orders for the GT and GT Performance Edition models that will offer increased performance and handling.
The Mustang Mach-E GT interior will feature multi-color ambient lighting, the GT logo embroidered on the center console armrest, and sport-style seats that feature Black Onyx ActiveX material with Miko inserts. The Mach-E GT will also have a premium nine-speaker stereo system by Band & Olufsen and a subwoofer.
Mustang Mach-E GT
The GT version of the Mach-E will be equipped with AWD and magnetic dual motors, in addition to having an improved secondary electric motor. The GT trim will be capable of 480hp and 600 lb-ft of torque with an estimated 0-60 time in 3.8 seconds. The total driving range on a full charge is rated at 250 miles. The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E GT features 20-inch machined-face aluminum wheels with high-gloss black accents in an interlocked design wrapped in 245/45R20 Continental all-season tires. Mach-E GT also gets red-painted performance brake calipers, plus 385-millimeter ventilated front rotors and 316-millimeter solid rear rotors.
Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition
The Performance Edition of the Mach-E is faster than the GT version, with an estimated 0-60 time in 3.5 seconds and an extra 214 lb-ft of torque. Even though the Performance Edition will have the same 480hp as the GT, the increase in torque will enable it to grip and handle better by drawing more power from its battery pack. The driving range is rated at 235 miles, which is slightly less than the GT. The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition will come with 385-millimeter front rotors, red-painted Brembo-branded calipers, as well as 20-inch machined-face aluminum wheels with high-gloss Ebony Black-painted pockets wrapped in Performance-rated 245/45R20 Pirelli summer tires.
