The Ford GT is a true driving machine, providing an experience unequalled for performance aficionados. These owners demand control and customization in their vehicle, which is no ordinary grocery getter.

With this in mind, the engineers at Ford Performance set out to ensure that the all-new Ford GT would perform for each owner in any driving condition. The solution was an exclusive set of five drive modes that are available with the simple turn of a knob, making driving the Ford GT in any condition an absolute joy!

With Normal, Wet, Sport, Track, and V-Max modes, Ford GT drivers know their supercar is prepared to tackle whatever comes their way. When the driver changes between modes, the Ford GT makes adjustments to its electronic, mechanical and aerodynamic elements, keeping it optimized for any-and-all road conditions.

Ford Performance uses insights gained on the race track to ensure drivers get the most out of the fastest Ford production vehicle of all time. 

GT’s role as a technology test bed is evident throughout the supercar, and is not limited just to drive modes (Ford GT’s track mode, for example, is also offered in the new 2018 Mustang). Some innovations, such as carbon fiber lightweighting, serve as longer-term possibilities, while others, like all-digital dashboard technology available in the 2018 Mustang, are hitting showrooms soon.

 As new Ford GTs continue to roll into owner driveways, other Ford customers can expect to find a little bit of the supercar in their future vehicles as well.  It’s just another way Ford wants all drivers to Go Further – no matter where life takes you.
