Overview

Few Fords capture the imagination and dominate the racetrack quite like the company's exclusive GT hypercar. Its arresting design is enticingly futuristic and functionally aerodynamic. Its austere interior puts the focus on driving, with seats fixed into position and most controls mounted on the steering wheel. Its mid-mounted twin-turbo V-6 makes 660 horsepower and 550 lb-ft of torque that is sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. The engine's thrilling soundtrack is accompanied by neck-snapping acceleration and otherworldly handling characteristics. Make no mistake, the GT is built for the track—not the streets. However, the six-figure Ford is surprisingly docile in everyday situations. While only a select few will ever own this automotive masterpiece, its existence should enthrall enthusiasts.

What's New for 2020?

Ford squeezes even more horsepower from the GT's twin-turbo V-6 for 2020. The rise from 647 ponies to 660 is accompanied by a fatter torque curve, recalibrated engine management, and revised pistons and ignition coils. The Blue Oval's halo car also gets firmer damper settings, improved engine cooling, and a titanium exhaust system that's claimed to make even more pronounced sounds. The other changes include a couple of fresh appearance packages. The new Liquid Carbon option is a limited edition, and the special clearcoat replaces traditional paint so onlookers can admire its carbon-fiber body. There's also an updated Gulf Racing livery that celebrates the company's Le Mans win in 1969. This look can now be paired with carbon-fiber wheels for the first time, too.

Pricing and Which One to Buy

Let's imagine that we could actually get on the list to buy a new Ford GT and further imagine that we could pay for said privilege. Our preferred combination of exterior color and stripes would be Liquid Blue and Frozen White, respectively. We'd also finish the front, rear, and sides in gloss carbon fiber, upgrade to the glossy carbon-fiber wheels for that extra dose of exotic and paint the brake calipers blue. Inside, we'd choose the Re-Entry theme that applies white-leather to the dashboard and seats.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

Unlike the supercharged V-8 in the previous-generation GT, the new car is equipped with a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 engine that is similar to the one found in the Ford F-150 Raptor. Pumping out 660 horsepower and 550 lb-ft of torque, the V-6 is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. While the last version we tested had fewer horses, it launched the rear-wheel-drive GT to 60 mph in just 3.0 seconds and through the quarter-mile in 10.8 seconds at 134 mph. Piloting the GT is surprisingly easy, and the big car feels light and agile from behind the wheel. Despite its performance potential, the ride isn't as punishing as you might imagine; the suspension doesn't get choppy over minor bumps, but it'll still transmit harsh impacts through to the cabin.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

Preserving fossil fuels is the lowest priority when it comes to hypercars. However, the Ford GT is one of the most efficient examples. The EPA estimates the 2020 model will earn 12 mpg city and 18 highway. Compare that with the Bugatti Chiron(9/15 mpg city/highway) and the Lamborghini Aventador (9/14 mpg city/highway). Then again, the Ford has between six and 10 few cylinders than those gas guzzlers. Since we haven't tested any of these high-dollar machines on our 200-mile highway route, we can't evaluate their real-world mpg.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

The interior is similarly arresting but for a different reason: It's extremely minimalistic and driver focused, with almost every control relegated to the race-car-inspired steering wheel. Getting inside is a challenge, but once you're there, you'll notice the driver's seat doesn't adjust. Instead, Ford engineered the pedals and steering wheel to adjust to the driver's position in the fixed seat. The gauge cluster looks as if it were taken directly out of the Ford GT race car, and another digital display is inset into the suede-wrapped dashboard and controls the infotainment functions.

Infotainment and Connectivity

With the priority focused on driving, the GT doesn't offer the litany of infotainment and connectivity features that most modern cars do. Still, it has a 6.5-inch touchscreen that supports Ford's Sync 3 software. It also responds to voice commands and has built-in navigation for those who want to road-trip this $500,000 machine.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

The Ford GT is a low-volume, ultra-high-performance model, so it's not crash-tested by either agency that conducts these evaluations. Likewise, it lacks any of the driver-assistance technology that is traditionally cooked into most modern consumer cars.

Warranty and Maintenance Coverage

Despite its exclusivity and lofty price tag, the GT does have a familiar warranty. However, Ford doesn't cap the mileage on its limited and powertrain coverage during their three-year periods.

  • Limited warranty covers three years and unlimited miles
  • Powertrain warranty covers three years and unlimited miles
  • No complimentary scheduled maintenance

Ford gt mpg 2020

Overview

For anyone who wants to drive a race car that's legal for road use, just gather up about a half-million dollars and somehow earn the chance to buy a 2022 Ford GT. Its breathtaking bodywork both honors the iconic GT40 race car that dominated Le Mans in the 1960s and serves as the pinnacle of the Blue Oval's design and engineering departments. While the Ford F-150 also has a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6, it sure as hell doesn't make 660 horsepower and sound like a band of demons at full throttle. When the GT's gas pedal hits the proverbial metal, it should be on a racetrack—for safety reasons, yes­—but also to truly appreciate its relentless acceleration, vivid steering, and indomitable carbon-ceramic brakes. Surprisingly, its race-bred suspension can be adjusted to comfortable levels on regular roads. However, its cockpit is barren to avoid distractions and it's difficult to enter and exit, so don't mistake it for a daily driver. Sure, the prohibitively priced Ford GT won't impress Ferrari and McLaren owners with its raw performance figures, but it'll shock and awe anyone who's privileged enough to drive it.

What's New for 2022?

The 2022 Ford GT is notable because it serves as the last model year of the limited-production road-going race car. As a send-off to the marvelous machine that launched back in 2017 and to pay further homage to the five original GT prototypes that spawned the Le Mans winners, Ford introduces the 2022 GT '64 Prototype Heritage Edition. With a livery meant to mimic the first GT/101 prototype, this special edition wears Wimbledon White paint and a host of Antimatter Blue exterior details. These extend from the racing stripe over the roof to the 20-inch carbon-fiber wheels. Inside, the carbon-fiber seats and sections of the dashboard are covered in Lightspeed Blue microsuede to go along with the same type of material, except in black, on the steering wheel and headliner.

Pricing and Which One to Buy

Ford hasn't released official pricing for the 2022 GT, but we expect the supercar to continue to start at $500,000. Although that means most of us could never afford to own this exotic Ford, it's still fun to dream and fiddle with the configurator on the consumer site. We like the Frozen White exterior color paired with the Lightning Blue stripes that run over the top of the car. We'd also opt for the glossy carbon-fiber lower finish and 20-inch wheels for an added dose of raciness. A set of blue brake calipers completes the look. Inside, we're drawn to the Light Speed interior trim, which covers the cabin with a mix of black leather and blue microsuede surfaces.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

Unlike the supercharged V-8 in the previous-generation GT, the new car is equipped with a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 engine that is similar to the one found in the Ford F-150 Raptor. Pumping out 660 horsepower and 550 pound-feet of torque, the V-6 is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. While the last version we tested had a few less horses, it still posted supercar-worthy acceleration times. Piloting the GT is surprisingly easy, and the big car feels light and agile from behind the wheel. Despite its performance potential, the ride isn't as punishing as you might imagine. The suspension rides just short of choppy over minor bumps, but it'll still transmit some harsh impacts through to the cabin.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

Preserving fossil fuels is the lowest priority when it comes to hypercars. However, the Ford GT is one of the most efficient examples. The EPA estimates it'll earn 12 mpg city and 18 highway. Compare that with gas guzzlers like the Bugatti Chiron (9/15 mpg city/highway) and the Lamborghini Aventador (9/14 mpg city/highway). Then again, the Ford has six fewer cylinders than the Lambo and 10 fewer than the Bugatti. Since we haven't tested any of these high-dollar machines on our 75-mph fuel-economy route, which isn't part of our extensive testing regimen, we can't evaluate their real-world mpg. For more information about the GT's fuel economy, visit the EPA's website.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

The interior is similarly arresting but for a different reason: It's extremely minimalistic and driver-focused, with almost every control relegated to the race-car-inspired steering wheel.

2020 Ford Mustang EcoBoost (10AT HPP) – Real-world Highway Fuel Economy

Guess the gas mileage of Ford's GT supercar

The EPA has officially rated the fuel mileage of the 200-plus-mph, EcoBoost-powered Ford GT: Drumroll, please: It'll get 11 mpg in the city, 18 on the highway, for a combined average of 14 mpg. Apparently that EcoBoost is a lot more boost than eco. That also means the Ford GT will get the mandated gas-guzzler tax, which will fall somewhere between $2,000 and $3,000, depending on how the government calculates it. Also, it's one tick less city and highway than the 5.4-liter supercharged V8 in the 2005 edition.

But no matter. It's a Ford GT. The company will sell (has sold) every one, and they'll all be awesome. And about that tax: $2,500 on top of $400,000? That's just a drop in the bucket.

Gas guzzler tax likely to get slapped on supercar

by Kirby Garlitos, on

The new Ford GTsupercar is arguably one of the most exciting cars to come out of Dearborn, Michigan in recent memory. Actually, it is the most exciting car that Ford has developed in years and the sheer performance numbers – over 600 horsepower – certainly points to the car living up to all the hype it has received. But the world is all about balance and for all the things that’s awesome about the new GT, it also has qualities about that are, well, less so.

Turns out, fuel efficiency is as foreign a concept to the new GT as roll-up windows. But even if that’s to be expected, not a lot of people probably expected the GT to post an anaemic fuel efficiency rating from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. But that’s exactly what it got after the EPA announced that the mighty GT’s fuel-economy ratings amount to just 11 mpg city, 18 mpg highway, and 14 mpg combined. That might not seem like a big deal in the context of today’s supercars, but remember, the GT has a 3.5-liter "EcoBoost" V-6 engine, which should at least imply some kind of decent mileage, loosely as the term “decent” may be used.

Not only is that not the case, but the GT’s fuel economy ratings actually compares to the Lamborghini Aventador (11/18/13 mpg), which by the way is using a 6.0-liter V-12 engine. The new GT’s ratings are even worse than the car it’s succeeding, the original 2005 supercharged V-8 Ford GT, which returned 12/19/14 mpg, albeit adjusted to reflect the EPA’s current evaluations. According to the EPA, the new GT’s fuel economy ratings even call for an estimate of $8,000 more in fuel expenses compared to an average vehicle. To make things more complicated, Car and Driver notes that with those ratings, the new GT could get slapped with a gas-guzzler tax, which in turn would add somewhere around $3,000 to its overall price tag.

The figures are a bit surprising considering that the EPA arrived at those numbers despite Ford giving it an EcoBoost engine. Then again, it’s hard to imagine the people behind the 6,000-plus applications Ford got for the supercar to worry about the extra costs they’ll have to pay for a car that’s already priced at about $400,000.

Continue after the jump to read the full story.

Poor fuel economy returns won’t stop buyers from getting the GT

On the one hand, the EPA’s mileage ratings for the Ford GT are a little surprising considering the engine it’s using. Isn’t a 3.5-liter Ecoboost V-6 engine supposed to be efficient, or at least more efficient than, say, a naturally-aspirated V-12 engine? The disparity in the size of the engines alone should point to that conclusion, but somehow, that’s not the case with the Ford GT.

In fact, if you compare it to other supercars today, the GT falls really short in fuel economy ratings. Take a look at the Ferrari 488 GTB, for example. It packs a 3.9-liter turbocharged V-8 engine that’s good for 660 horsepower and 560 pound-feet of torque and its 15/22/18 mpg returns isn’t much too, but it’s still better than the GT. Even the Lamborghini Huracán with its 610-horsepower, naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V-10 engine returns 14/21/17 mpg. Then there’s the Acura NSX, which has a similarly sized combustion engine that’s supplemented by hybrid technology. It rates at 21/22/21 mpg. The common thread here among all three supercars is that all three of them return better fuel economy ratings than the Ford GT. Just goes to show you that as awesome a supercar as the GT is, it’s not a perfect car by any means.

But like I said, those who are interested in buying the Ford GT are unlikely to be worried about the car’s fuel economy ratings. The car, after all, has a rich racing pedigree attached to it so if you think about it in that sense, economy ratings are probably the least of Ford’s concerns and that of the people who are willing to spend close to half a million dollars for it.

It’s all about how fast and powerful the Ford GT is and at least in those two terms, the car appears to be living up to the hype.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity).
