Review Ford Mustang Mach-E GT –
This is the new 2021 ford mustang machi gt, and it’s the high performance version of the new ford mustang machi electric car.
I reviewed the regular maki about a year ago, but this is the exciting one with just under 500 horsepower and 0-60 in less than four seconds, and today I’m going to review it.
Before I get started, make sure to check out cars and bids, which is my enthusiast car auction website for cool cars from the modern era now with We’ve had some excellent transactions lately, including this Porsche 911 Turbo 991 that went for $180,000.

This beautiful e46 m3 with manual transmission went for just under 26 000 and this c8 corvette got just under 93 000.
So let’s talk about the mustang machi gt, even though ford mustang purists despise ford for using the mustang name for this vehicle, it is technically a mustang, which means there’s a regular version and a gt with more performance, which is the gt, which starts around sixty thousand dollars for about 480 horsepower compared to the regular maki, which starts around forty three thousand dollars for roughly 270 horsepower.
Of course, the mach This has 480 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque, and it’ll do 0-60 in 3.8 seconds.
Those are some pretty impressive numbers, especially for a small compact midsize crossover.
They’re a significant improvement over the standard non-gt maki, which has about 350 horsepower and does 0-60 in 4.8 seconds, so this with 480 horses and 3.8 is a significant improvement, but of course the extra performance also comes with a price.
The machi gt this one starts around 61 000, whereas a regular maki can range between 43 and 56 000 for its base price, so this is definitely a step up in terms of cost but also a step up in terms of performance, similar to going from a regular mustang to a regular mustang gt same deal with the mach e now I should say that pricing is a pretty decent value when you consider the performance level and technology that this car offers this one as equipped.
The model y goes from 0 to 60 in about three and a half seconds versus 3.8 here, and the model-wise range is about 300 miles versus 270 here, so this is a little bit cheaper but the model y definitely has some advantages in terms of performance and range.
However, as you might expect, the machi gt adds more than just extra power for its extra money a lot of the other changes are visible or at least focused in this area for one thing you get bigger wheels not You get a different front bumper situation with like a front splitter as you can see down here and you get a grill a regular maki has this painted and it doesn’t look like a grill at all really but the gt has this black grill which sort of sets it apart and makes it look like a grill like a performance car might have to suck in air to the engine also notable with the mach egt the pony logo lights up in front whereas the regular maki just has To let everyone know what it is, the standard Ford mustang is a huge 5-0.
This item reads mock e4 x, which is sort of mysterious and nobody really understands what that means.
It’d be nice to see a little more badging or some visual differentiation on the outside showing that this is a gt as it sits right now it’s kind of a cool sleeper but it also doesn’t have any of the muscle you’d expect to see in a mustang gt but anyway next up we move inside and there are actually fewer gt changes to the interior than there are to the exterior although you do see one when you open the door the door sill says g Same deal on the center armrest here you have gt printed into the leather which looks very nice and you have sport seats in here you have some nice more heavily bolstered sport seats it’ll keep you in place should you decide to bring your gt onto the racetrack one other important item to note is the drive mode situation here gt models get an extra drive mode in regular versions of the machi the sport mode is called unbridled which is sort of like a horse term because it’s like it Starting with getting inside, you don’t have a traditional door handle here as you can see you walk up no real handle instead there’s a button on this piece of black trim if you press that there’s a little handle below it you can use to pull and then open the door and that’s how you open the door in the mock e very strange this little button is an electronic release that pops the door open and you pull it from there rather strange but not as strange as the back door which is a sliding You have your climate controls permanently on the bottom of the screen, and everything, as I said, works pretty intuitively.
It’s pretty similar stuff to Tesla’s Model 3 and Model Y with this massive center screen, but one big advantage the Mach e has over the Model 3 and Y, at least in my opinion, is that there’s also a screen in front of the steering wheel.
A gauge cluster screen is a small horizontal screen as you can see, but it shows you all of your really important information directly in your line of sight, whereas in the Model 3 and Model Y everything is on the center screen, in the Mach e you have this important information directly down from where you’re already looking when you’re driving the car and you don’t have to look over the center to see simple things like your speed or whether your turn signals are on, and you don’t have to look over the center to I’m a rather tall adult, yet I have no trouble sitting back here.
My knees aren’t up against the front seat, which is largely due to the curved design of the front seat back, which gives me good knee and back room, but more importantly, my headroom is pretty good.
I’m sitting back here and my head isn’t right up against the ceiling, which is surprising given this car’s kind of fast back teardrop shape.
Most electric cars have this shape for aerodynamic reasons, but it usually comes at the expense of rear headroom, but in the mock e Another interesting feature is the cargo area.
As you can see, the cargo area is fairly large and flat, so you can fit a lot of stuff here.
However, if you want to put a large bulky box back here, you might run into trouble because the roof line comes down in the back and steals some of the upper cargo space.
Still, decent cargo room and fairly standard for vehicles.
230 against 300 for model y performance 0-60 and 3-5 and model y performance 0-60 and 3-5, respectively.
This is 0-60 and 3-8, so it has less range and performance, but there are some caveats.
When I review an electric car, the automaker is careful to tell me that you know, something like 90 percent of people drive less than 20 miles per day, so range doesn’t really matter all that much, and there’s some truth to that when you consider the difference between 270 miles range and 300 miles range for most people.
Tesla appeals to me; in fact, I adore Tesla.
I’ve given positive reviews to nearly every Tesla product I’ve driven; I think they’re great cars and they’re really, really good.
However, tesla supporters on Twitter believe that a car’s 0-60 time is its performance; anyone who knows anything about cars and driving knows that’s not true; many of these tesla supporters are coming out of priuses and don’t know much about driving dynamics and performance in corners and on highways.
There are things I like better about it, but for my specific life experience where I do a lot of long distance driving i’ve done 25 000 miles in my daily car over the last year um having the extra range and having a better driver assist would probably be what i’d go for, but i’d be driving my wide performance and every time i’d see one of these i’d say damn I wish I had that like i’d want that more but i’d make the This automobile and its performance are about as fantastic as they come, so there you have it: the 2021 Ford Mustang Machi gt.
This is a fantastic all-around vehicle with outstanding performance, good steering and handling, and terrific acceleration, as well as strong technology, practicality, and affordability.
It also has a reasonable range.
Honestly, outside from the super-expensive electric cars like the Model S Plaid and the Porsche Tycoon, there aren’t many other options.
This may be my favorite all-around electric vehicle to date, and now it’s time to give the fake egt a Doug score, which is 68 out of 100.
The mock e gt is at the top of this list, tied with the model y’s performance.
While there are many fantastic electric vehicles out there, the Volkswagen id4 is a decent deal.
The audi e-tron is luxurious, but nothing compares to the y performance and the mach e gt in terms of all-around performance.
If you look closely, you can see that the mach e gets an extra point for styling quality and handling, while the y gets a point for cool factor features and acceleration.
Regardless of which you choose, the mach e gt and the model y performance are the best overall electric cars on the market today.
