A technology showcase for Ford Performance innovation and the technology and engineering expertise that goes into all Ford vehicles, the GT is one of more than 12 new Ford Performance vehicles coming by 2020.

“The Ford GT highlights the very best of what Ford can accomplish using our global expertise in design and engineering,” said John Lawler, chairman and CEO, Ford China. “It’s more than just a halo car. It’s a showcase of how the technologies and engineering approaches we use in all of our vehicles can come together to create the ultimate, no-compromise ultra-high performance car.”

The all-new GT supercar features rear-wheel drive, a mid-mounted engine, and a sleek, aerodynamic, two-door coupe body shell. It is propelled by the most powerful EcoBoost production engine ever – a next-generation twinturbocharged EcoBoost V6 producing more than 600 horsepower.

The GT makes extensive use of lightweight materials, including carbon fiber and aluminum – enabling outstanding acceleration and handling with improved efficiency.

Ford’s commitment to and capability in delivering technologies typically offered only in elite vehicles is evident in the GT. These include advanced active aerodynamics, such as a deployable rear spoiler, and a host of material and technology innovations to help better serve the driver, such as SYNC®3 – the latest version of Ford’s advanced connectivity system.

“What’s most exciting about the GT is how you can find the roots of the technologies and engineering expertise it displays in our existing product lineup, just taken to an extreme,” said Trevor Worthington, vice president, Product Development, Ford Asia Pacific. “Whether it’s advanced connectivity in the new Ford Focus or the painstaking aerodynamic work that went into the front undershield on the new Everest, all of our vehicles display something of the GT in them.”
