YouTube reviews are fine and dandy, some are really good. But IDGAF about any reviews that don’t contain objective data like ETs/trap speeds, lap times etc. Owners in the forum have covered the objective/subjective impressions pretty well so now it’s time to see if the GTs are still only 1/8th mile champs or if they’ve been turned loose into true Quarter Horses.

And one more shout out to all the GT owners putting in work at the track and with their Dragys to try to help us all out.

We literally have dragy proof from like 5 different GT owners via 50-70+ pulls and trap speeds that the GT isn’t competitive (with even the Volvo, let along the Tesla) past around 60 mph but Ford homers are still arguing and pretending it’s not true? Mind boggling.
Well, not sure what you are comparing to but the numbers I see 50-70 only the TESLA is faster.

(table below based on the numbers from this forum for the GTPE and C&D for rest)

I think we had established that the problem is more 60 to 100 (120) 🤔

I said past around 60, not even sure what you’re trying to argue about.

I wasn’t talking about 50-70 runs specifically (hence why I said 50-70+) just saying that those tests plus the trap speed evidence = Ford isn’t competitive at higher speeds, and It isn’t just losing to the Tesla it’s also losing to the Volvo (and the Jaguar).

Thought you were referring specifically to the 50-70 times, which are still better on the GT

It is clear that the trap times and acceleration beyond the 60 MPH is lacking compared to others, just wanted to be clear on the 50-70 times

Anyway, no sense to keep on discussing this, it has been documented enough.

Yeah, what's sad is the GTPE is marketed as a Performance variant. The others (Volvo, Jaguar, Audi) are just the normal version. GTPE is slower then the Y Long Range with the acceleration boost, and slower then the Y Performance.

@OutofSpecKyle really has me questioning whether I should take delivery of my regular GT which should be delivered today. Almost sprung for the GTPE just because of magnirde, but seats looked weird to me so decided against.

Here (24:38, few seconds in) Kyle from OutOfSpec says Ford is working on 1/4 mile optimizations. He says it pretty fast but it is clear he said they are working on it and named the engineer who he was getting his info from. Also said he'll be testing it more when he gets a car to test for longer.

I'd love to be wrong but I don't see them picking up 10 mph in trap with "optimizations."

Agreed. It would be great if one of these “influencers” asked point blank about the quarter mile performance and published that answer or lack thereof.

I stand by what I said as people started getting theirs and posting ETs. Ford wanted a peformance version to sell against Tesla, but don’t want to go whole hog and build an EV Mustang that outruns a gas Mustang (Shelby’s excluded), so you get what we’ve got. Mule kick to 60 and handles well for a SUV. If Ford wanted to brag about quarter mile times, they would have rented Milan dragway in Milan MI and run the car there. They don’t, so they didn’t.

Relax. Wait til you drive it on your local roads. I assume you’re referring to his complaints about the standard GT shock tuning. The complaints could be a bit overblown considering he was on one road for about 2 minutes before dismissing the GT totally. Maybe not. Besides, I’m sure Koni, Bilstein or another will be offering a good set of adjustable shocks that’ll cost less than 1/4 of the $5K PE option.

That's what I'm hoping. @markboris did mention that swapping out the premium shocks with GT ones helped with the bounciness, so it's interesting that Kyle was that quick to dislike the feel.

Noted. I’d actually just prefer a smoother ride and hoping it’s better than what my AWD EX offers now. I can’t imagine I will ever see a track with the GT, as I never have before in my life.

Don't fret it. I too went GT over GT PE, because while I sought high performance, I also wanted seats that fit wider people and tires that worked year 'round in mid-Atlantic weather, and while I would have liked the Magneride suspension, it wasn't worth the other tradeoffs, especially as I don't live near canyon roads or autocross tracks. Everyone's needs are different. Happily, Ford offers Mach-Es that fit most of ours. {Jonathan}
