2017 FORD GT EPA-RATED 11/18 MPG CITY/HIGHWAY

No Comments Cars News

Nobody who buys the roughly $450,000 Ford GT is going to care what kind of gas mileage it gets, but the EPA has rated the supercar anyway. As you’d expect, the GT is no fuel-sipper. But the numbers are very close to the last-gen GT despite the new model making more power.

The 2017 Ford GT is EPA-rated 11/18 mpg city/highway. That’s just slightly less than the 2005 Ford GT, which was rated 12/19 mpg. Both cars have the same 14-mpg combined rating, likely due to the EPA averaging the pre-rounded numbers. The upcoming 2017 model is powered by a high-output twin-turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 that makes at least 600 hp and is backed by a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The first Ford GT used a supercharged 5.4-liter V-8 that made 550 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque, which came paired exclusively to a six-speed manual.
