The 2017 Ford GT Likes Gas

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.

    The GT made a name for itself in the 1960s, and the nameplate returned to Ford for the 2005 and 2006 models. Since then, the vehicle has truly evolved into a supercar, evident by it’s $100,000+ price tag.
    The company has made some changes to the third-generation GT, prioritizing handling and track capabilities in their 2017 model. The result? Not only one of Ford’s most impressive cars ever, but perhaps one of the most innovative cars to ever be released. For more information about the 2017 Ford GT Release Date checkout.

    This likely takes into account the amount of idling time as people ask the driver to stop so that they can take pics. ;)


    LOL! Probably truer than we think....
