2017 Ford GT Supercar Not EcoBoost With Gaz Guzzler Tax

2017 Ford GT Supercar Not EcoBoost With Gaz Guzzler Tax
Anticipating better gas mileage from a supercar but this is not going to happen. But the EcoBoost tag on the 2017 Ford GT twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6 at least implies respectable mileage, even within the supercar discourse. The EPA just published its fuel-economy appraisals for the 2017 Ford GT and its twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 is 11 mpg municipality, 18 mpg freeway, and 14 mpg combined. We spotted Ford GT in Detroit before a day.

To put that into discourse, the EPA for the V-12 Lamborghini Aventador coupe at 11/18/13 mpg, the twin-turbo V-8 Bentley Mulsanne at 11/18/14 mpg, and the 450-hp F-150 Raptor with an akin EcoBoost motor at 15/18/16 mpg.

The EcoBoost GT’s appraisals are also worse than those of the aged powered V-8 2005 Ford GT, with its 12/19/14 mpg (note that EPA judgments have changed since then, and these are modified figures). That means the 2017 Ford GT, supplied only with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, will be struck with a gas-guzzler tax levy of about $3000, not that the additional outgo will rede anyone from lifting over some $400,000 for the car.

Gas mileage is only one of the first official specification to come out about the GT. Ford has expressed that the EcoBoost motor will make more than 600 horsepower, and its weight should be extremely debased, given its carbon-fiber body. Ford says it’s positioning for the champion power-to-weight ratio of any car on the marketplace. This is a car created in enormous part for a racing software and the people driving it probably will not work that they’ll be using a calculated 7.1 gallons of premium fuel per 100 miles. They’ll be too busy tracking lap times and looking at their meters to notice any other figures.
