A torsion bar and pushrod suspension does duty and incorporates adjustable ride height settings. Stopping power comes from carbon-ceramic disc brakes.  It comes with upward-swinging doors and the seats are incorporated directly on the floor.

    The Ford GT is RWD like its predecessors and is one of twelve new models that will be launched under the Ford Performance banner by the year 2020. Some of the other models that will feature in this performance sub-brand include the Ford Focus RS, the Ford F-150 Raptor, the Shelby GT350 and the GT350R.

    The new Ford GT will come to market to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Ford's GT race cars placing first, second and third at the 1966 Le Mans 24 Hours race.
