Ford unveiled the upgraded 2020 Ford GT today at the Chicago Auto Show, touting both mechanical and appearance upgrades.
More Power, Better Cooling
All 2020 Ford GTs benefit from 13 more horsepower, bringing 3.5-liter V6 twin-turbo EcoBoost engine up to 660 horsepower. Ford has also massaged the power curve, giving the 2020 GT a broader torque band and improved engine calibration.
Mechanical upgrades come by way of gallery-cooled pistons and higher-energy-ignition coils, which are found in the track-only GT Mk II shown last year at Goodwood. Revised buttress air ducts increase airflow by 50 percent, and larger intercoolers keep charge air entering the 2020 GT cooler. Suspension damping has been increased in track mode to keep the GT as flat as possible in corners.
Also new for 2020 is a standard Akrapovič titanium exhaust system. Ford says the new exhaust shaves nine pounds off the previous exhaust system while enhancing the GT’s already fantastic exhaust note.
Ford GT Liquid Carbon
The new Ford GT Liquid Carbon shows off the 2020 GT’s body with fully exposed carbon fiber. There is no paint to hide that beautiful carbon fiber weave and is instead protected by a special clearcoat. The GT Liquid Carbon also gets standard carbon-fiber wheels.
Other personal touches that are available are titanium lugnuts, six-point racing harness anchors, five interior color options, and five brake caliper color options. The usual dual or single center strip options are also available.
Updated Gulf Racing Heritage Livery
Ford has updated the 2020 Ford GT Gulf Racing Heritage livery by adding a black pinstripe divider and changing the optional carbon number to 6. Carbon fiber wheels are also available.
Production of the Ford GT comes to an end in 2022.
