2017 Ford GT Transmission

The transmission on the GT is an innovative 7-speed dual-clutch automated manual transmission, and it sends a substantial amount of power to the rear wheels. Early horsepower estimates are in the 600 range, as are the torque figures. The brakes are courtesy of the famed Brembo performance brand, and they are composed of carbon-ceramic. The 20-inch wheels are mated to Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup 2 tires, which lend well towards exceptional handling and performance. This 2017 Ford GT preview near Chicago, IL also reveals that the drivetrain is simple in that it doesn’t include any extraneous components that could slow down performance. The EcoBoost lineup of engines—the newest generation of which sits in the middle of the GT—are great at maximizing power in a no frills and simple manner. All will come with a 3.6L V6.

Inside the 2017 Ford GT Near Chicago, IL

The interior of the Ford GT provides all of the modern sports car amenities, and the futuristic doors hinge up and out. The gauges are all digital, and the central color display screen is the visual highlight of the new Sync 4 infotainment system. The transmission mentioned earlier in this 2017 Ford GT preview near Chicago, IL comes with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters. The steering wheel itself is angular in a part circle, part square sort of way, and you can easily select from different transmission mode. The exterior more than looks the part, and the substance is just as noteworthy as the style. The body is made up of mostly carbon fiber, making it one of the lighter supercars on the market. The suspension is advanced, and it is designed to help you get the most out of your vehicle in that it doesn’t fall prey to the "too much power for the car" scenario.
