I just got my window sticker today for my GTPE and there are other people that are 2-3 weeks ahead of me and I have yet to see a hands on GT review. The only one that I know of was released by ford like 2 months ago where it was a ford driver and a blogger in the passenger seat. How come no one else has gotten to do an independent review or been able to get their hands on one when they are already being built?

In the past journalists and car bloggers would have already have had loaners or test vehicles to do hands on reviews at this stage in production. Seems kind of odd.

The orange one you are referring to is a manufacturer plated car. I am pretty sure they haven’t delivered a GT or GTP to a final customer yet.

I don't think they have either but usually they have pre production models that they loan out or use for events where journalists/bloggers get to see them and or ride/drive them during ford sponsored events.

I am pretty surprised no one has posted a video from the auto show. I have a feeling there is an embargo on the car at the moment, which is why we've really only gotten one real video of the GT.

Someone was telling me they saw an ad for the Mach-E on TV this weekend and I realized I haven't seen any ads that show the GT. I don't watch a lot of television, but figured they would feature the GT at some point.

As far as advertising goes, I have not seen mention of the GT. Cars like the Mustang GT, MME GT, etc. tend to sell themselves since they are the model leads. With all the buzz the other models have already created, I don’t think Ford needs to advertise the GT, at least for this year.

The real question is, what is the embargo date for Mach-E GT reviews? I'm assuming they've already begun giving reviewers access to the GT, but they're likely under embargo until some specific date, just as they were with the original Mach-E reviews. {Jonathan}

Its definitely Odd to see these YouTube channels releasing videos of other cars, like the Maverick and Lightning, and you can see the GT in the background, but not one video about it yet.

I assume there is a media embargo, when will it end so we can watch reviews?
