Ford released the final specs and prices for the Mach-E GT and Mach-E GT Performance Edition, the sportiest versions of its electric SUV, on Wednesday. The GT starts at $ 61,000 while the GT Performance Edition starts at $ 66,000 (both prices include the target), and both are available to order right now.
Both versions have a twin-engine all-wheel drive with 480 hp. The torque output is set at 600 lb-ft for the GT and 634 lb-ft for the GT Performance Edition. Other four-wheel drive Mach-E variants produce 346 horsepower and 428 lb-ft, and Ford also offers rear-wheel drive versions with a single engine.
Ford specifies 0-60 mph times of 3.8 seconds for the GT and 3.5 seconds for the GT Performance Edition. The latter number corresponds to the Tesla Model Y Performance, which has a base price of $ 61,190.

Official EPA range estimates are 270 miles for the GT and 260 miles for the Performance Edition. That’s significantly less than the longest-range Mach-E, California Route 1, which can travel 305 miles on one charge. The Tesla Model Y Performance as EPA-estimated 303 miles of range.
The Mach-E GT Performance Edition also adds Brembo brake calipers, magnetic dampers and Pirelli summer tires instead of the Continental all-season rubber of the Mach-E GT. Both models are available with the Ford BlueCruise driver assistance system, which can control steering, acceleration and braking on certain sections of the motorway. Unlike Tesla, Ford also uses a driver monitoring system to protect itself from abuse.
Ford plans to begin shipping the Mach-E GT and GT Performance Edition in early fall. They may not be the only performance versions of the Mach-E. We heard that a Shelby version might also be in the works.
