2021 Ford GT To Get All-New Graphics Package With Customizable Colors

Sponsored Links

Back in February, Ford announced a series of changes were coming to the 2020 Ford GT, including an improved cooling system, a 13 horsepower boost to an even 660 ponies, and the introduction of the rather stunning Liquid Carbon Edition. The 2021 Ford GT carries over mostly unchanged, but Ford has announced that it will be available with an all-new graphics package with customizable colors.

Since the automaker dropped the news over July 4th weekend, it was only appropriate that it did so by displaying the 2021 Ford GT in red, white, and blue hues. Ford also said that the new color  and graphics options focus on “highlighting features that help deliver all 660 horsepower during the most strenuous track sessions.”

No additional information was provided, but the new graphics package is clearly displayed in the photos. We can see a contrasting stripe on the side of the car that’s shaped somewhat like a reverse “C,” and is located just behind the doors. The side mirrors are also painted the same color as the stripes, as well as what appears to be a solid single stripe running the length of the car up top.

Ford should release more information on these new offerings soon, but otherwise essentially confirmed that the 2021 Ford GT will carryover mechanically unchanged. That means the same 3.5L EcoBoost V6 with a series of upgrades that debuted last year. They include a broader torque band and revised engine calibration, gallery-cooled pistons, and higher-energy ignition coils. Those developments trickled down directly from the limited-edition, track-only GT Mk II.

Additionally, the Ford GT now comes with a standard Akrapovič titanium exhaust that saves nine pounds over the old unit. Engine cooling and airflow updates include new buttress air ducts designed to increase air flow by 50 percent, while larger intercoolers keep charge air temperatures cooler. Suspension damping is increased in track mode to further enhance handling and body control.

We’ll have more details on the 2021 GT’s updates as soon as they’re available, so be sure to subscribe to Ford Authority for more Ford GT News and around-the-clock Ford news coverage.
