With this new tuning option, Ford will push the car’s output to 480 horsepower and 634 pound-feet of torque, resulting in a 0-60 mph time of just 3.5 seconds. The 88kWh lithium-ion battery pack will give the vehicle a range of up to 235 miles, although the figure has yet to be certified by the Environmental Protection Agency.
Elsewhere, the Performance Edition will receive a range of different upgrades, including 20-inch machined wheels wrapped in Pirelli summer tires, 19-inch rotors with Brembo brakes, a MagneRide suspension system, and sports seats up front.
There’s currently no pricing information on how much the Performance Edition will cost, but the standard GT will set you back $62,700 USD. Production in Mexico begins late 2020, and the car will arrive in summer 2021.
