What’s New in the 2020 Ford GT Supercar?
Is the 2020 Ford GT more powerful than the outgoing model? Yes – the new 2020 Ford GT will make 660 horsepower, signaling an increase of 13 horsepower from the 2017-19 Ford GT. Changes to the 2020 GT’s EcoBoost engine include a broader torque band, revised engine calibration and the addition of gallery-cooled pistons and higher-energy ignition coils. New buttress air ducts increase airflow by 50%, while larger intercoolers help keep charge air temperatures cooler. The 2020 Ford GT also trades up to a premium Akrapovič titanium exhaust, shaving off nine lbs. of weight over the previous system. The updated setup also creates a more resonant exhaust note from the EcoBoost engine.
What are the new GT appearance packages? GT owners will have two new unique appearance options to choose from this year: Liquid Carbon and the updated Gulf Racing Heritage Livery.
Liquid Carbon Package: The new Ford GT Liquid Carbon trades the paint finish for a special clearcoat layer, putting an emphasis on the GT’s lightweight carbon fiber body. Carbon fiber wheels are featured as standard equipment on the Liquid Carbon package.
Gulf Racing Heritage Livery: The updated Gulf Racing Heritage Livery now uses a black pinstripe to divide the orange and blue color scheme. The optional carbon-fiber number also changes to 6 for 2020. For the first time, carbon fiber wheels are available in place of aluminum alloy.
