2017 Ford GT Materials

Most of the body—the passenger cabin in particular—will be composed of lightweight carbon fiber, which in turn will aid in giving it an exceptional power-to-weight ratio. Other extremity components near the front and rear will have bits of lightweight aluminum to augment the carbon fiber. Upon further review of the 2017 Ford GT, you will learn that the interior will come with all of the modern amenities, with one of the highlights being a button on the dashboard that moves the front end up a few inches in the event you come across an unfriendly driveway or a steep speed bump. The traction and stability control functions will join with the host of airbags to highlight the safety features, with the former also aiding in performance lap times. The other usual features like tire pressure monitoring systems, emergency braking assist, and rearview cameras look to be included as well.
