It was a surprise to the auto world when folks at the Blue Oval decided to rerelease the Ford GT.
Installing a V6 in an iconic ride which has been powered by a big-banger V8 since its inception was a pretty bold move by Ford, even if the 6-cylinder EcoBoost will be supplemented by twin turbos. It did drew mixed reactions and it’s interesting to see if things pan out, but personally, I must say that Ford’s gamble looks quite promising.
The controversial 3.5-liter mill generates 647 hp, 550 lb-ft of torque and has been mated to a swift-shifting 7-speed dual clutch. Ford says the setup is good for a top speed of 216-mph.
