Well, the official EPA ratings for the 2017 Ford GT supercar are in. Perhaps it isn’t entirely surprising to find that the new GT, well, it appears to really like gasoline. In fact, the car will wear official ratings of 11 mpg city and 18 mpg highway.
Oddly enough the ratings put the 2017 GT right identical with that of the 2005 GT40. It is worth noting that the EPA fuel economy cycle has changed significantly since 2005, so is the predecessor was tested again it would likely be bested by today’s version of the car.
The new GT is powered by Ford’s well-known 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 with about 630 horsepower. Now, despite the performance credentials most of the supercar’s rivals do beat it in terms of fuel economy. The Ferrari 488, Lamborghini Huracan and McLaren 570S all have higher EPA ratings than the new GT.
But, we highly doubt anyone (and particularly owners) are going to care much about the fuel economy on this beast.
