480-HP 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E GT Nearly $24K More Than V-8 GT

  • The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E GT starts at $61,000, and the quicker GT Performance Edition model will cost $66,000, Ford has announced.
  • The GT Performance Edition produces 214 pound-feet of additional torque and is equipped with larger brakes, Pirelli summer tires, and magnetorheological dampers.
  • Orders open on April 28, and the GT models will arrive at dealers in the fall.

    The Ford Mustang Mach-E’s higher-performance GT and GT Performance Edition models will arrive in the fall with 480 horsepower and a new track driving mode. Orders will open on Wednesday, April 28, starting at $61,000 for the GT and $66,000 for the GT Performance. That’s $23,685 more than the 460-hp V-8–powered Mustang GT and $1190 cheaper than the Tesla Model Y Performance.

    Mustang Mach-E GTs are equipped with an 88.0-kWh battery pack and two electric motors, one on each axle, sending power to all four wheels. However, their front motor is more powerful than the lesser Mustang Mach-E’s. Total output is 480 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque, but 643 pound-feet of torque in the GT Performance Edition. Ford says the GT will reach 60 mph in 3.8 seconds and the GT Performance Edition in 3.5 seconds. In our test, the Premium AWD model with the larger battery hit that mark in 5.1 seconds, trailing the 330-hp Mustang 2.3L High Performance by 0.1 second.

    Both get an additional setting for their Unbridled drive mode—Whisper and Engage are the other modes—called Unbridle Extend that’s for track use only. It’s toggled through a tab under the drive-mode settings. Ford says the new setting balances power output for ideal use on track as well as adjusts the traction and stability control settings in addition to flooding the cabin with a louder propulsion sound.

    Ford estimates that the GT model will be rated at 250 miles of range, while the GT Performance Edition will reach 235 miles. The highest-rated Mustang Mach-E is the California Route 1 model, which is EPA-estimated at 305 miles of range. Ford’s BlueCruise hands-free driving system will also be available on both GT models.

    Cyber Orange and Grabber Blue (previously exclusive to the First Edition model) have a special color palette. They have a carbonized gray grille, red Brembo brakes, 20-inch black wheels, and GT badging. The Performance Edition is distinguished by special badging, unique 20-inch wheels wrapped in Pirelli summer tires (Continental all-season rubber is standard on the GT), Ford Performance seats with metallic stitching (standard GTs get copper stitching), an aluminum instrument panel, and standard magnetorheological dampers.
