Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide


The track-oriented craftsmanship of Ford GT is evident from the aerodynamic shape and inclusion of a fresh Lightweight Carbon Series. Although the Ford GT boasts prevalent stunning looks, those wanting more fancies can avail of the new Heritage Edition featuring a unique paint scheme that is recently made available across the lineup. With the 3.5-liter Ecoboost twin-turbocharged motor at heart, the GT outputs 647 hp and 550lb-ft of torque that puts a smile on the face of megalomaniacs. In the supercar combat, Ford GT is the American answer to the European and British marques like Lamborghini Aventador S, McLaren 720s, and Aston Martin DBS Superleggera.

2019 Ford GT Features

The Ford GT features a standalone trim being the top-end performance model of the brand. Yet, if you are looking for more exotic versions, you must check out the limited edition Carbon-fibre series and Heritage Edition models. The 2019 Ford GT coupe is base-priced at $500,000 and many customization options are provided at additional costs. Some of the exterior elements get carbon fiber with gloss/matte finish, while many carbon-fiber elements are noticeable in the interiors. The gull-wing doors and speed-activated wing spoiler make the GT an eye-catcher. 

The 3.5-liter Ecoboost twin-turbocharged V6 powers the GT, while the aerodynamic design boosts the performance and offers exceptional handling cues. The fixed driver seat with the pedal floor having fore and aft adjustment puts the driver at ease. The 6.5-inch touchscreen and 10-inch configurable digital driver display are very easy to use and allow drivers to focus more on driving than handling screens. The FIA-approved fully integrated roll cage along with active computing systems take care of safety in real-time.

We Recommend

With the only available trim, there is not much to play around with in the case of Ford GT configuration. But you can always customize the car further from the available 8 exterior colors, 8 color stripes, 5 color calipers, and 4 interior themes. The Heritage Edition brings in totally unique color schemes - Shadow Black, Matte Black, and Race Red, wearing which makes the GT looks more stunning. But these goodies come out at the expense of extra cost, so be ready to shred out more money.

2019 Ford GT Engine and Performance

Distinctive from the previous generation, the current generation of Ford GT cradles a relatively compact 3.5-liter Ecoboost twin-turbocharged V6 unit. Do not get tricked by the V6 tag, as this unit punches out 647hp in combination with 550lb-ft of peak torque. With such tremendous power delivered to the rear wheels through a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, the GT blasts off to 60 miles an hour from a standstill in 3 seconds flat. 

Pressing the throttle hard in a GT will zoom you off like a spaceship. Moreover, it hits home with the tuned chassis and aerodynamic design that optimizes downforce and offers hardcore handling cues. This supercar courtesy is extended to the transmission with paddle shifters that make smooth and lightning-quick shifts. Behind the wheel, it feels super agile and connected. To customize the ride further, the ride height is adjustable with up to two settings.

All the rivals of Ford GT are comparatively juicier when it comes to the horsepower figures. Among those, the Lamborghini Aventador tops out with a gigantic 729 hp. The McLaren 720s stays the quickest off the mark with a maximum output of 710hp. However, it is certain that no car boasting a V6 is as peppy as the Ford GT. Although GT is not the most potent or quickest accelerating car, it’s the lightest car in the segment. 

The combination of aerodynamic design, lightweight, and deft steering feel make the driving experience charismatic. The speed-activated rear wing is awesome to watch when it shoots up. Air braking and Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes are on the button in bringing the GT supercar to a complete halt from 60mph in 92 feet.

2019 Ford GT Fuel Economy

Efficiency must be the least of your worries if you are in the market for a supercar like Ford GT. However, to plan out trips, the estimated mileage figures of 13 mpg within the city and 18 mpg on highways can be of help. Returning a combined driving range of 197 miles, the Ford GT still sounds to be efficient enough for the stature and punch. Yet, the low fuel economy and fuel storing capacity of only 15.2 gallons offered by the GT requires more frequent visits to fuel stations than its competitors.

None of the rivals are much different than GT taking into consideration the fuel economy figures. Yet, the McLaren 720s and Aston Martin DBS Superleggera boast higher fuel economy figures. The McLaren 720s sits at the pinnacle when it comes to fuel efficiency and driving range combined. Although the Lamborghini Aventador has lower mileage than the Ford GT, it flaunts a tank that can store up to 22.5 gallons of fuel as opposed to the GT’s 15.2-gallon tank.

2019 Ford GT Interior

As it’s irrefutable to deny the exotic flair in GT’s exterior styling, it’s nigh on impossible to not get impressed with the interiors as well. Sitting in a GT would give you the feeling of being in a jet plane, although you might not know what it feels like to be in one. The layout is very simplistic, functional, and track-inspired. Carbon-fiber elements can be seen spread out widely in the GT cabin. The carbon-fiber Sparco seats might disguise you feeling not as much bucketed as you might expect of a supercar, but on tracks, it holds onto you perfectly providing decent support while cornering. The hexagonal-shaped steering wheel has bagged mixed kinds of reviews from our team, feeling comfortable to some and odd-gripped to others.

Getting inside is slightly challenging due to the swing-up gullwing doors along with the high and wide door sill. But once tucked in seats, things get pretty easy. The seats are fixed in position but the carbon fiber pedal box and carbon fiber steering wheel provide back and forth adjustments with ample range to put one in a convenient driving position. The steering wheel gets the tilt and telescoping features as additional extras. Speaking of space, you can fit two but they will sit very closely. It definitely lacks the interior cubbies and you will barely find any space that collectively fits your wallet and cell phone. Also, the boot space of 0.4cu-ft is very lackluster and much behind in comparison with competitors.

All the coupes amongst GT’s rivals have seating for up to two, except for the DBS Superleggera which comes with a seating configuration for up to four people. The Ford GT and McLaren 720s interiors lie on the same plane when it comes to interior appointments. The Lamborghini Aventador is out and out a flashy player in the interiors, but its utilitarianism factor is restricted like the other two. Aston Martin DBS Superleggera takes the interior game to a whole new level owing to more space, utility, comfort creatures, and MB-inspired technology. Yet, some interesting features that GT interiors boast upon include-

  • Matte carbon fiber cabin
  • Carbon fiber Sparco seats with Alcantara upholstery
  • Fixed seats with back & forth adjustable pedal box
  • Tilt and telescoping steering column
  • Racing-inspired carbon fiber hexagonal steering wheel
  • Active noise cancellation system
  • Intelligent access with push-button start
  • 4 interior themes

How intuitive is the car’s infotainment unit?

The Ford GT has a 6.5-inch center touchscreen display stacked in the dash. It gets paired with the Ford SYNC 3 interface which is glitch-free and easy to use. The voice controls also function effectively so that you don’t need to play with the touchscreen while zooming off the GT. It gets packed with features like Apple Carplay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, navigation system, SiriusXM satellite radio, and USB ports that help you stay connected and charged. 

In order to stay updated with the vital figures and race-oriented stuff while driving, Ford GT incorporates a 10-inch color LCD instrument display that can be easily configured using the well-laid-out steering wheel controls. The sharp and clear LCD screen of the digital cluster offers good visibility as well. The metal knobs that control some functions like wipers and driving modes are pleasingly tactile. Some highlight features of the infotainment systems include- 

  • 10-inch configurable digital instrument cluster
  • 6.5-inch touchscreen
  • SYNC 3 interface
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • Navigation with voice control
  • Rearview camera

2019 Ford GT Exterior

Any owner of a Ford GT would get a thumbs-up from the onlookers, primarily for two major reasons - style and performance. The Ford GT has scintillating looks and an undeniable silhouette. Every external element present on the GT body is lined and designed aerodynamically. The deep hood lines, cutaway nose with adjacent lined vents, cavitated flying buttresses, modish rear wheel arc, dual center exhaust, flat headlights, and bulls-eye-shaped taillights, put light on the detailing Ford has done to make this supercar look iconic and functional at the very same time. Furthermore, the gull-wing doors and the speed-activated rear wing spoiler act as icing on the top of the cake.

To customize the looks further, eight exterior color options are available, to which the center stripe can add more flair. Heritage Edition is a new addition to the GT lineup this year that swanks distinct catchy color schemes. The Heritage Edition can be availed in Shadow Black, Matte Black, and Race Red color tones. The 20-inch U spoked wheels and low ride height finally imparts an athletic stance to the GT. The blend of sophistication, aerodynamic detailing, crispiness, aggression, and athletic stance makes the GT an exotic car. Basically, Ford has left no stone unturned while designing this supercar in such a way that leaves the audience in awe.

The Ford GT remains the lightest car in the segment, while the bulkiest one is the DBS Superleggera. The McLaren 720s weighs a decent 3193 lbs staying just above the GT in the race. The McLaren 720s also has the most compact dimensions in the segment which might help a bit in maneuverability. 

The Lamborghini Aventador is the longest car, but DBS Superleggera has a longer wheelbase which makes it spacious inside. All these cars are visually appealing, but the flamboyant Lamborghini Aventador S and the sui generis looks of Aston Martin DBS Superleggera make it stand apart from the crowd. Key highlight exterior features of the Ford GT include:

  • Aerodynamically optimized design
  • Gull-wing doors
  • Speed-activated rear wing spoiler
  • Cutaway nose with adjacent lined vents
  • Bulls-eye-shaped taillights
  • Dual center exhaust
  • 20-inch U spoked wheels 
  • Gorilla hybrid glass windscreen

2019 Ford GT Safety

However fast a car may be, safety is the top priority of every buyer. Ford has taken well care of this aspect, especially in the case of GT models. As they cost dearly and yield jaw-dropping performance, the supercars are mostly exempted from safety testing by many recognized organizations. The 2019 Ford GT is no different and is deprived of any safety rating from the NHTSA as well as IIHS. But Ford has consolidated GT with top-notch safety mechanisms and there has been only one recall on the past models which guarantees the same.

Loads of safety features are present in the 2019 GT, but the Ford experts have put extra emphasis on the fully integrated Roll cage feature. Other features like stability and traction control, hill start assist, rearview camera come in handy assisting the driver to make the ride safe and secure. The sensors and computing system continuously monitor and display the inputs, loads, environment, and car’s responses. So put your mind at ease and enjoy the ballistic performance of the Ford GT. Some major safety features are as listed below:

  • FIA approved fully integrated Roll cage
  • Stability and traction control
  • Rearview camera
  • Sensors and computing systems
  • Airbrake
  • Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes

2019 Ford GT Competition

2019 Ford GT vs 2019 Lamborghini Aventador S

The Lamborghini Aventador S looks snazzier and more iconic than the Ford GT. The all-wheel-drive imparts sophistication to the Lambo ride, but the aero work of GT gives it undeniable balance and composure. The Lamborghini zooms off a little faster, but the Ford GT feels slightly more connected from behind the wheel. The Lamborghini has more decent space than the Ford GT. Although GT has slightly better fuel efficiency, the tank capacity of the Lamborghini Aventador is much more which brings them both on the same line. It’s very tough to choose one amongst these marvels, and choosing one would narrow to personal preferences.

2019 Ford GT vs 2019 McLaren 720s

Both these cars are known for their lethal performance and exceptional handling. The McLaren is a low-priced, more potent, fast accelerating, fuel-efficient, and spacious car than the Ford GT. However, the detailing of the Ford GT combined with the fun factor actually makes it hold ground against the McLaren 720s.

2019 Ford GT vs 2019 Aston-Martin DBS Superleggera

While both these cars belong to the supercar category, their approach towards the segment is quite apart. The Ford GT has worked more on hardcore performance, while Aston Martin blends in a more sophisticated character while performing. The Ford GT is swift, vigorous, and engaging to drive. Whereas, the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera is a supercar filled with comfort-creatures. The space, everyday drive tuning, luxury, and efficiency of the Superleggera give it an upper hand in the competition, but if you want unparalleled performance, Ford GT hits the spot. 

2019 Ford GT Final Verdict

If you are ready to get a big hole drilled in your pocket and looking for an exotic supercar that is a shining star of the American heritage, your bet should be on the blue-oval flagship Ford GT. It’s a legal road car that always stays eager to hit the tracks. Nothing will feel as ferocious, agile, sharp, and connected as the Ford GT is. Get it around corners, and you will be amazed by the sensational balance, stability, and composure it maintains. 

The interesting thing about GT sales is that it’s focused more on building a long-time relationship with customers, rather than just selling it out to wealthy individuals who might or might not care. So you can’t go wrong with a Ford GT. But if you are looking for a more modest price, practicality, utility, and luxury combined with supercar performance, Aston Martin won’t disappoint you.
