2017 Ford GT Performance

If you’re reading this 2017 Ford GT preview in Gurnee, IL, then you’re in the right place. The new GT has quite the performance pedigree, originally triumphing at Le Mans many years ago, and the current design is being tested in international competition. It’s powered by a mid-engine, twin-turbo 3.5L V6 engine that’s projected to put out over 600 horsepower, and it’s regulated by a 7-speed automatic transmission with a dual-clutch. To provide the stopping power necessary for so much speed, the GT comes equipped with Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes, and you have dynamic handling thanks to the long suspension arms and inboard damper packaging. To help optimize aerodynamics and thrills on track runs, you can lower the ride height on the new GT by up to 50 millimeters.

Look of the 2017 Ford GT in Gurnee, IL

Though all of the details about the new Ford GT aren’t published yet, this 2017 Ford GT preview in Gurnee, IL, should give you a good idea of what this supercar is all about. It has the sophisticated look of a world-class supercar, and every inch of the design has been engineered to enhance performance by reducing weight, increasing aerodynamic efficiency, and increasing strength. High-tech carbon fiber for the body provides strength while decreasing weight, and the rear wing is a marvel of efficiency. It improves aerodynamics even when it isn’t deployed, and when in use, it can change its shape to reduce drag even more. Aluminum for the high-strength subframes helps to minimize weight. The air inlets in front of the rear wheels feed air to the intercoolers while doubling as air intakes for the engine, and they also add an aggressive style to the GT’s impressive exterior.
