The GT's cabin is very similar to the base Mach-E, with changes including available sport seats with copper stitching, faux-suede inserts and a few badges. A few more model-specific touches would help make the GT feel even more distinct and special.
You can spot a GT on the road by its carbon-finish "grille" insert. There's not actually any flow-through holes for airflow, but it does look more aggressive. Down below, a more aggressive front splitter is bookended by a pair of air curtains.
Ford has sunk the 88-kWh battery pack into floor of the chassis to help keep the Mach-E GT glued to the ground. Despite being an SUV with a taller roof, Ford's Dave Pericak says this model's center of gravity is nearly the same as a gas-powered Mustang coupe.
Ford's steering and handling course is designed to expose a car's handling weaknesses and includes a lot of up-and-down sine waves and even some sections where the wheels leave the ground when a performance vehicle is driven in anger.
Those trick dampers help disguise how heavy this vehicle is. A base Mach-E can weigh nearly 5,000 pounds and, with its bigger wheels and tires and added equipment, it wouldn't be surprising if this GT is heavier still.
The new 2021 Mach-E GT hits dealers in late summer, with pricing starting at $61,000 ($59,900 MSRP plus $1,100 delivery fee). A Performance Edition like this starts at $66,000 including delivery. Both models will be eligible for the $7,500 federal tax credit.
