2017 Ford GT Exterior

It’s too early to know all of the facts about the new GT, but this 2017 Ford GT preview near Kenosha, WI, should give you a pretty good sense of what this model is like. While every aspect of the car has been engineered for performance, the exterior is like functional art. The air inlets in front of the rear wheels add aggressive style, while their main function is to deliver air for the intercoolers and engine. The rear exhaust provides a not-so-subtle performance cue, and is integrated into the midsection of the bodywork to aid with airflow over the top and optimize diffuser performance below. The rear buttresses not only contribute to airflow efficiency and strengthen the chassis, they also add a technical style to the overall look. The rear wing is another example of the incredible engineering for the 2017 GT. Since it's integrated into the overall design of the fuselage, it helps to optimize airflow even when it’s not deployed, and it can change its shape when you deploy it to make the most of your aerodynamic efficiency.

Explosive Performance from the 2017 Ford GT near Kenosha, WI

It would be hard to summarize this 2017 Ford GT preview near Kenosha, WI, with one word, but if you asked us at Gillespie Ford to pick one, we’d say explosive. The 3.5L EcoBoost® engine for the GT is projected to generate in excess of 600 horsepower, and since the GT has a lightweight, carbon fiber body that provides a very high power-to-weight ratio, there will be even more thrills to go around. Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes provide the stopping power needed for such a robust car, and to deliver the dynamic handling you need, the GT is equipped with inboard dampers and long suspension arms. To help lower the center of gravity and keep you firmly planted to the road surface on track runs, you can lower the ride height on the 2017 GT by 50 millimeters.
