With the announcement of the GT Performance Edition from Ford, I'm interested to see how many GT reservation holders will add the Performance Edition Package to their order.

Here's how both cars compare in terms of power and range. I guess it comes down to whether or not the extra torque is worth the 15 miles of less range.

Mach-E GT
  • 480 hp
  • 600 lb-ft torque
  • 0-60: 3.8 seconds
  • 250 miles range (eAWD)

Mach-E GT Performance Edition
  • 480 hp
  • 634 lb-ft torque
  • 0-60: 3.5 seconds
  • 235 miles range (eAWD)

I know that I'm 'showing my age', however the only times that I can think of where Three Tenths of a second would even be noticeable would be in 'Waterboarding' or Hanging or Drag Racing. That's why I went with the 300 mile RWD Premium. Although I love the 'grill' with the lighted Pony.

I'm basically comparing against Premium AWD. I am willing to sacrifice 20 mi range to reduce 0-60 by 1 second. But an additional 15 mi loss for a mere 0.3s is not justifiable. From an external appeal perspective, any GT with dark matter grey and the GT front grill will satisfy me.

If I were going GT, it would definitely be the Performance Edition.

I love the wheels, the red brake calipers, and color options for the GT the interior trim but the ~5K premium over our Premium 4X and the longer wait makes it a really difficult choice to change the order.

If Ford stock continues to perform well we could have his/hers MMEs though. Now wouldn't that be tacky?

Depends on the cost difference. I am not seeing much of a reason to go performance edition other than vanity. Not seeing much additional value, yet.

For folks in New Jersey, switching from Premium AWD to GT means loosing an additional 5k EV rebate, so the overall price increase is 10k. If we add Active Drive Assist prep package, the difference gets even more wider.

I want the Performance Edition for the Magneride suspension (my Focus RS does much better at the track when put into track mode), for what I hope will be 6-pot Brembos up front, and Mark Kaufman told me that "we're trying really, REALLY hard to get the weight down".

In a couple maybe three years if there are battery developments I could see myself "trading up" to a GT Performance from the Premium I have on order.
