Big news for 2015 and beyond, y’all. Ford is bringing more than 12 new performance vehicles from now and until 2020!
Included in this lineup are the all-new Ford GT (shown for the first time at the 2015 North American International Auto Show) new Shelby GT350R Mustang and new F-150 Raptor.
Coming sooner than later will be the 2015 Shelby GT350 Mustang,featuring Ford’s first-ever production V8 engine with a flat-plane crankshaft, also offers an incredible 500-horsepower naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V8. Also included is a new frontend that uses Ford Racing innovations to better the downforce in the car/cooling.
Next comes the 2017 Raptor. Following in the F-150s steps, it will weigh about 500 pounds less but be much more powerful than Raptors of previous years. It is claiming the title of the “toughest, smartest, most capable” truck on the road and will be yours to buy in fall 2016.
The new GT will be manufactured in late 2016. It will feature the next-generation twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 engine that will provide over 600 horsepower. Also part of the package is impressive acceleration, better than ever efficiency, advanced active aerodynamics and the brand new, easier to use Sync system.
Says Raj Nair, Ford group vice president, Global Product Development: “Our new global Ford Performance team ties together racing, performance vehicles and parts. It will allow us to more quickly introduce products and accessories that meet the needs of customers around the world on-road and on the track…
Ford still races for the same reasons Henry Ford did in 1901 – to prove out our products and technologies against the very best in the world. The Ford Performance team will continue to pursue performance innovation, ensuring we can deliver even more coveted performance.”
And we will continue to be on the edge of our seats (and updating all of you, of course) waiting for all of the Ford perfection that comes next.
