2016 Ford GT
The 2016 Ford GT arrives at Mullinax Ford in Mobile, AL later this year, but we had to tell you about this mind-blowing vehicle topping Ford's Performance lineup. Next-generation EcoBoost® technology sits under the hood of this innovative vehicle with a race-inspired, twin-turbocharged 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 that will produce more than 600 horsepower and will be mated with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission that offers almost immediate shifts and unparalleled driver control. Pair that full-throttle speed with rear-wheel drive, lightweight carbon-fiber construction, and aerodynamics expertly tuned for drag reduction and downforce optimization, and you have a vehicle born with the need for speed. Mullinax Ford can let you know when the 2016 Ford GT pulls in to our showroom. Then you can give us a call at (866) 933-9524 or visit us at 7311 Airport Boulevard, and see this engineering marvel for yourself!
The Ford GT showcases technology and innovation with ultra-efficient aerodynamics, EcoBoost® performance and lightweight carbon-fiber construction.
It has a contemporary performance layout with rear-wheel drive and a mid-mounted engine. And it will be propelled by the most powerful EcoBoost production engine ever: a next-generation twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 that will produce more than 600 horsepower. This new engine is based on the same race-proven engine architecture as that used in Ford IMSA Daytona Prototype endurance-racing efforts. The EcoBoost engine will be a paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch transaxle for near instantaneous gear changes and exceptional driver control.
All of a vehicle's capabilities - acceleration, handling, braking, safety, efficiency - can improve through the use of advanced, lighter materials, and the GT makes generous use of these high-tech composites.
Aerodynamic efficiency is at the heart of the Ford GT design, with every slope and shape examined to minimize drag and optimize downforce. An active rear spoiler is keyed to both speed and driver input, reactively deploying and adjusting its height and/or pitch angle depending on conditions.
GT is the latest proof point of the commitment by Ford Performance to bring more global performance vehicles to customers worldwide. It joins the Focus RS, F-150 Raptor, Shelby GT350® and Shelby® GT350R as the latest addition to the Ford Performance lineup.
