2017 Ford GT Technology will Trickle Down to Other Models
When Ford unveiled the next-generation 2017 Ford GT at the Detroit Auto Show last year, a lot of people assumed that they would also be returning to endurance racing at the historic 24 Hours of Le Mans race. It turned out that those rumors were true, and Ford will be returning to the iconic endurance race next year. The credible automotive source Xcar recently caught up with a Ford representative for an interview where they learned that the 2017 Ford GT technology will trickle down to other models eventually as well. That also includes some of the technology found on the Ford GT racecar that is competing at Le Mans, which is very exciting.
In the Xcar interview we learned that the new Ford GT program is meant as a way to advance the state-of-the-art technology at Ford, and showcase it in an ultimate track-ready supercar, the 2017 Ford GT. This car truly shows off what the Blue Oval automaker is capable is, and reminds the world of why the brand has had such a storied performance history.
However, that isn’t the only reason that they designed this car. They are also going to be trickling down the technology that they developed for it to all of the other models in their lineup. For example, Ford did some extensive research on how to implement carbon fiber effectively at a low cost for the Ford GT, and they plan to carry that technology over to some of their lower cost models in the future.
According to a Ford representative, “We’re using this vehicle to demonstrate the engineering prowess within the Ford Motor Company. This is the pinnacle of Ford Performance, and this is going to showcase our latest and greatest technologies, the latest innovations that we have, and what Ford is all about.
