Hard to say. It could still be just COVID. I wouldn't be surprised if resources have been diverted to other products so they can keep those on schedule, such as the new Bronco lineup and F-150. Those will sell in much higher volume and earn more money than the Mach-E GT, which only accounts for a fraction of the already low volume Mach-e. Besides just the work delays, COVID was absolutely brutal to Fords stock value and shareholder confidence, so I imagine there is a lot of pressure to get those other projects launched successfully to keep the shareholders happy and balance sheets above water. Ford is already reeling from other issues the last few years, like the Air Bag recalls, transmission issues, and troubled Explorer launch so things were already shaky for them before COVID striked and they can't afford to mess up any of their big upcoming launches.
The GT is likely going to be the most profitable trim of the MME so it would make the most sense for Ford to ensure that it gets out timely and is also competitive on the marketplace if not a class leader. That's why I'm having a hard time understanding why it is not coming out sooner.
