The 2020 Ford GT is now available for sale at a whopping sale price of $500,000. The only change made this year is under the hood. Its 3.5L twin-turbocharged V6 now makes 13 horsepower more which equates to 660 hp and 550 lb-ft. of torque. The rest of the specs and features remain the same as the outgoing model. The GT is known to deliver fiery performance on the track and can sprint from 0-60 MPH in just 3 seconds with a top speed of 216 MPH.

A new Liquid Carbon option is available that exposes its carbon fiber body and that might add more than $250,000 to the price tag. The GT's interior is minimalistic and driver-focused. Most of the interior is dressed in Alcantara and carbon fiber. Its infotainment functions are carried out by a 6.5-inch display with smartphone integration. Looking at the current market, it competes against the McLaren 720S, the Lamborghini Aventador S, and the Ferrari 488 Pista.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

The 2020 Ford GT is a clear indicator that this half-million-dollar supercar has more to give- Edmunds

With some crushing power and blazing performance, the mid-engined coupe has been mostly the same after its launch. Now with increased power, the GT is faster than ever. Its interior is tailored to give a driving interactive experience. Unlike many supercars that are powered by V8 and V12, this one carries a V6 while Ford's EcoBoost technology helps to offer decent gas mileage. 

A car that has a price tag of half a million dollars will surely burn a hole in your deep pockets to maintain it. Although it may have low repair costs compared to other supercars, it surprisingly has a low depreciation value. There are cases where this car was sold was double the price in America. This suggests that the iconic history of the GT is the reason for its high resale value.

Features

No packages are really available to add further features- Carbuzz

The Ford GT is a coupe that is offered as a single trim. It is a specialized and track-focused sports car which is the reason why this American automaker does not offer any specific trims and makes it a sole lineup. It has a starting price of $500,000, without a $1,095 destination charge. It has nothing much to do with the features to be offered, there are plenty of other customization options in the same make if one needs them.

2020 Ford GT side view

A Heritage Edition is available with Gulf racing colors of sky blue and orange. It can also be specced with carbon-fiber wheels. No additional packages are available for the GT. Frankly speaking, the GT is decently equipped for a supercar. It comes with a SYNC 3 infotainment system, gets carbon-fiber trimmings on the interior, and packs some occult features like adaptive air suspension and an electronically controlled rear spoiler.

We Recommend

As there is no specific variation available for the Ford GT but it has been a host of multiple upgrades that are worth giving a shot. It has that pivotal nature that can balance the power delivery and the control with ease. Further adding to that are the active and adaptive extensions that not just aid in stability but communicate the proper feedback as well to bring about the changes in the input from one’s end if any. A class apart interior ambiance with exemplary performance and appealing outfit makes it a must buy but the price is a little too much to afford. Therefore, it is completely a matter of choice to own the “dawn”.

Engine and Performance
8.0/10

Engineered for the track, the Ford GT is not only street legal, it is quite at home buzzing around town- Autotrader

The Ford GT is powered by a 3.5L twin-turbocharged V6 which generates 660 hp of power and 550 lb-ft. of torque. That's a 13 hp increase in power over the previous model. This engine is amongst one of the finest made by the Michigan-based brand. In fact, it is picked from the popular F-150 lineup, powering the Raptor. This raw madness of power is sifted by a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission and is sent to the ground via the rear wheels. This engine roars at a high rev range but it is not annoying. 

2020 Ford GT engine

The GT is basically a carbon-fiber tub surrounded by an aluminum alloy subframe and is incredibly light. It is equipped with independent multi-link arms on all four wheels that are supported by an adaptive air suspension making it a decently smooth sportscar over small irregularities. However, hard and sudden impacts are not fully dampened. The American-crafter coupe uses a hydraulically actuated power steering, a smoother and more accurate method of steering actuation.

2020 Ford GT side driving view

With all the power and torque put together, the GT can accelerate from 0-60 MPH in just 3 seconds and gives a top speed of 216 MPH, which is hilariously fast. Moreover, this two-door sports car completes a standing quarter-mile in about 10.9 seconds. When it comes to braking, Ford has partnered with Brembo and installed a specialized and advanced braking system to make the GT a road-legal model. This makes the sports-coupe stop from 60 MPH to a standstill in just 91 feet.

The McLaren 720S is the best performer in this competition thanks to its powerful V8 and ferociously quick gearbox. The Lamborghini Aventador S shares the same stage as the 720S in terms of performance. The Ferrari 488 Pista is just 0.2 seconds behind the Lambo and the 720S in the 0-60 MPH. The GT is and has been been a performer. It has a competitive testament and history to its name, which makes its price soaring like anything.

Fuel Economy
7.0/10

Let’s face it, no one is ordering the 2020 Ford GT because of its mileage- Autotrader

Powered by the 3.5L EcoBoost, to have hopes of higher fuel efficiency on the Ford GT is completely normal. The GT gets better mileage with 11 MPG in the city while on the highway, it is 18 MPG. Therefore, it returns 14 MPG combined. Obviously, no one is going to look at the fuel ratings but these are actually decent for a supercar. 

2020 Ford GT front view

Moreover, the fuel tank capacity in this mid-engined sports car is 16.1 gallons which makes it capable of covering 225 miles of extreme sportiness. Comparatively, it offers the least range in its segment. The American manufacturer has chosen a rather unconventional spot for the fuel filler which is above one of the cooling vents.

With the best MPG figures, the Mclaren 720S is the most practical choice. The Ferrari 488 Pista is not way behind and can be given a preference over the former for its midway approach in its economy and power performance curve. On the other hand, the Lamborghini Aventador S has the worst fuel economy but looking at those power stats, it is fine. 

Interior
8.0/10

Inside the Ford GT, the focus is on the driver- MotorTrend

As said before, the Ford GT is made to perform with its track-focused build approach and not to impress with beautiful interiors like most other cars in the class. Having said that, the GT has a fantastic interior with the cabin fully covered in Alcantara with dark metal inserts. Starting with the dashboard design which looks modern and carries the aggressive styling on the inside. There are limited buttons altogether and AC vents are only spotted on the doors and nowhere on the dashboard.

2020 Ford GT dashboard

The steering wheel is extraordinary as wrapped in more of that Alcantara and looks really awesome with those metal-finished paddle shifters. Moreover, the two seats are made out of carbon fiber which reduces weight furthermore. It is wrapped in Alcantara with ribbed Aunde Canelado cloth inserts and GT-embossed head restraints. These seats are comfortable and there's ample space but they cannot be adjusted according to your comfort. Though, you can adjust the steering wheel and foot pedals.

2020 Ford GT infotainment system

The popular SYNC 3 infotainment system is standard on the GT with a small 6.5-inch touchscreen display that has smooth and highly responsive touch, very easy to operate. A simple center infotainment display means no crazy graphics, unlike the 10.1-inch driver information unit which is also a fully digital screen. This screen has good visibility and is customized to match different drive modes The GT also gets the navigation unit along with the voice recognition gesture controls as well.

The coupe has poor cargo capacity i.e. 0.4 cu-ft. which hardly impacts the image. That's because the GT was designed to perform on the track rather than use it for carrying groceries. Likewise, interior storage options also aren't great. A small tray is provided on the passenger's side under the dash. That's It! There are no cupholders, glove boxes, or door pockets. Some cool interior highlights are:

  • Tilt & telescopic multi-function Alcantara steering wheel
  • Alcantara interior accents
  • Aluminum foot pedals
  • Automatic climate control
  • Proximity keyless entry
  • 6.5-inch touchscreen w/ Android Auto & Apple CarPlay

Exterior
9.0/10

 The Ford GT coupe is a visually arresting beauty- Carbuzz

The holiest exterior design ever made by Ford is the GT. On the front are aggressive-looking full-LED projector headlights with DRLs and GT-badging inside the housing. The front bumper has a fully functional vent that runs all the way up to the hood, gluing the front end to the ground. Moving over to the side, the cabin area is smoothly curved out whereas there are strong character lines all over the side along with 20-inch blacked-out wheels.

2020 Ford GT three-quarter view

The marvelously styled scissor doors put together are a breath-taking view to look at. Besides this, the Ford GT has an active rear spoiler that pops out all by itself, based upon the speed. Another beautiful sight is the rounded dual chrome-tipped exhausts. The Ford GT has the lowest ground clearance which gives a streamlined airflow and a top-notch lower center of gravity which are a must for this segment. It has a drag coefficient of 0.388 which is an insane number.

The Ferrari 488 Pista sits 1.6 inches higher than the GT. Since it is not a track-focused car, it is fine. The tall height of the McLaren 720S may aid for a better headroom, though no interior dimensions of the car are disclosed. The Lamborghini Aventador S is the heaviest car as it houses a V12 under its hood. Some other exterior highlights are:

  • LED headlights
  • LED DRLs
  • LED taillights
  • Manual-folding exterior mirrors
  • Black grille w/ active grille shutters
  • Ground effects
  • Integrated dual exhaust tips
  • Electronically controlled rear spoiler
  • 20-inch alloy wheels
Safety
9.0/10

It lacks any of the driver-assistance technology that is traditionally cooked into most modern consumer cars- CarAndDriver

As with other high-end supercars, the Ford GT was not subjected to crash tests. Crashing a $500,000 car just for the sake of safety ratings is a foolish idea. However, Ford has constructed the GT’s structure out of a carbon-fiber tub which is supported by aluminum subframes, and a steel roll cage which makes it lighter and stronger.

 

2020 Ford GT rear angle view

In addition to this, the American manufacturer has also provided a racing harness provision to ensure maximum safety for all those amazing track days. Other than this, the area above the passenger seat is also said to be a strong structural point. Don't expect modern safety features in the GT. Some of the features available are:

  • Automatic post-crash fuel shut off system
  • Post-crash alert system
  • Rearview camera
Competition
6.0/10

2020 Ford GT vs 2020 McLaren 720S

The McLaren 720S seems like a good bargain. It offers power-packed performance for a much lesser price. The 720S is more compact and fuel-efficient than the GT. The 720S' cabin is more functional and also comes with an infotainment system whereas the GT strictly sticks only delivering high performance. Moreover, few safety features are also available, making it a great pick. 

2020 McLaren 720S

2020 Ford GT vs 2020 Lamborghini Aventador S

The Lamborghini Aventador S is a marvelous high-performance product. It has one of the most aggressively styled exteriors. Performance-wise, the Italian's V12 can take on the American's twin-turbo V6. Inside, the Aventador feels more luxurious and has the best-looking interior. The price becomes a concern in the Ford GT and that is where the Lambo may edge it out. 

2020 Lamborghini Aventador S

2020 Ford GT vs 2020 Ferrari 488 Pista

The battle between Ford and Ferrari has not yet ended as both have proved their worth. Ferrari has been more consistent than the American brand and the 488 Pista is a great example. Priced half of the GT, the Ferrari 488 Pista performs better than the American coupe, be it acceleration times, fuel efficiency, or braking performance. Thus, the price tag takes a toll on the choice altogether.

2020 Ferrari 488 Pista
Final Verdict

Nothing seems to be cooler or more possible than transforming a 40-year old iconic supercar that was built to contest in an endurance race and made America proud by bringing back-to-back wins. Ford did a fantastic job by reviving the GT and making it a road-legal vehicle. The 2020 Ford GT is a modern-day high-performance beast that will make everyone at the track filled with fear down their spine of its mighty speed and lightning-fast lap times.

Pros - Value only going up Crafted to perfection Can also daily drive.

Cons - Expensive in used market.

A modern day icon The Ford GT in terms of value is like a good crypto currency. It was $500,000 when new which definitely isn't cheap but compared to the $1,860,000 that I paid for a used one, the original price seems miles away.
