Ford recently introduced a new appearance option for the 2024 Mustang Mach-E GT, which will soon be available for preordering. The Bronze Appearance Package is more for show than go, but an exclusive performance package will also be available to add go-power. This new Mach-E variant joins the 2024 Mustang Mach-E Rally and is designed for off-pavement driving.

Why the Mustang Mach-E GT matters

Ford had unexpected success with the F-150 Lightning electric truck and the Mustang Mach-E electric SUV. The originally explosive EV sales growth has cooled a bit, but Ford needs to continue to develop and promote both models. Ford F150 pickup trucks have been the best-selling light vehicles, including cars and trucks, for over three decades. However, Ford snubbed the noses of many Mustang purists by using the Mustang name for a crossover utility electric vehicle. So, Ford is buttressing the Mach-E’s impact with attributes long-revered by ICE Mustang buyers: personalization and performance.

Ford hopes The Mustang Mach-E GT Bronze Appearance Package appeals to potential buyers’ yearning for personalization. The package bundles bodywork in three premium colors, bronze accents, and special badging. Ford promises the optional performance upgrade will deliver the quickest 0-60 time of any production Mustang Mach-E ever. We think the bronze package looks sharp and look forward to learning more about the performance upgrade.

When to order your own 2024 Mustang Mach-E GT

So far, Ford hasn’t yet announced a specific starting date for ordering the 2024 Mustang Mach-E other than “later this winter.” However, with only seven weeks of winter remaining, you won’t need to wait for long. If you like what you see in the photos above, here’s what we know about ordering and pricing. The 2024 Mustang Mach-E FT AWD with Extended Range and the Bronze Appearance Package will start at $60,990. That price doesn’t include additional options, including the promised but as-yet-undefined performance package. However, you could potentially begin the process by prequalifying for Ford Credit financing. Ford says that Prequalifying will not affect your credit and will not entail any further obligation.

Tesla has ‘waning marketability’ but still makes 5X more per vehicle than GM, Ford: Report
How Tesla's EV competition stacks up
Tesla Model 3 and Model Y parked in front of a city skyline on a runway.

It's a script we've seen time and time again. When the first big name becomes known for something, we as a society embrace and obsess about it for a while, and then slowly, we lose interest around the same time new competitors enter the once-monopolized market. For example, Ray Kroc helped introduce the world to McDonald's, and we reveled in french fries and milkshakes until Burger King, Wendy's, and a few dozen others tried to either step up their game or begin playing. Slowly, the once unimaginable profit margins the Golden Arches saw had to get trimmed to allow Micky D to stay at the head of the pack. Though neither is the first to do what they did, like McDonald's, Tesla has become the face of its industry. And also similarly, Elon Musk's company is beginning to feel the slow shift in profit that real competition brings.

Tesla hasn't had much competition until now
Let's face it: until very recently, Tesla has had very little in the way of genuine competition in the EV sector. Over the last decade, even the big three American companies have barely been able to grab any appreciable portion of the EV pie other than in the truck realm. A big reason is that Tesla isn't a part of that market due to Elon's geometric Mad Max Cybertruck being delayed since 2022.

Porsche power while sipping gas - what's not to love?
2024 Porsche Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid

Porsche wants 80 percent of its entire lineup to have fully electric motors by 2030 to meet the EV adoption target. So far, it has released only one fully electric model — the Porsche Taycan. However, it plans to introduce four new EV models to its lineup by 2026, including the Cayenne EV. Of course, Porsche will still offer hybrid models for those who love the high performance that comes with infusing a gasoline engine and an electric motor.

If you’re into SUVs or coupes, the 2024 Porsche Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid is more powerful than any Cayenne ever made. More succinctly, it's engineered with a twin-turbocharged V8 engine that can produce 591 horsepower and an electric motor that adds an extra 174 horsepower. In total, the 2024 Porsche Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid is a mean machine with up to 729 horsepower and 700 lb-ft. of torque. This is way more power than the 2023 Turbo S E Hybrid.
