Ford Performance today at the Chicago auto show confirmed tweaks to the GT supercar for 2020 with increased engine power to 660 horsepower and improved cooling. With 13 additional horsepower compared to 2017-19 GT, the 2020 EcoBoost engine has a broader torque band and revised engine calibration. Gallery-cooled pistons and higher-energy ignition coils are borrowed from the limited-edition, track-only GT Mk II, which has more than 700 horsepower at $1.2 million.
Additional engine cooling and airflow updates includes new buttress air ducts designed to increase air flow by 50% while larger intercoolers keep charge air temperatures cooler, preserving peak power for high-temperature sessions at the track. Suspension damping is increased in track mode to increase handling and body control, particularly for those high-speed transient sections of closed-course circuits.
