The GT enters a new model year with some updates taken from the limited-edition, track-only GT Mk II.

  • Ford has tweaked the GT supercar to produce more power for the 2020 model year.
  • It'll make 660 horsepower compared to 647 in the 2017 through 2019 model year cars, and it's equipped with a titanium exhaust system.
  • Deliveries of the updated model will continue until Ford ends GT production in the 2022 calendar year.

The Ford GT supercar is getting a little better for 2020. The twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6 will now make 660 horsepower and sound better, too, thanks to a standard Akrapovič titanium exhaust system.

All Ford GTs built between 2017 and 2019 made 647 horsepower from this same V-6. The extra 13 horsepower are thanks to revised engine calibration along with an improved cooling system, gallery-cooled pistons, higher energy ignition coils, and a titanium exhaust system. Ford also says the revised engine delivers a broader torque band. It'll sound better, too. The Akrapovič titanium exhaust system saves nine pounds and will resonate the EcoBoost engine's shriek.

The engine can also cool itself better now because of new air ducts in the GT's massive rear buttresses that increase airflow by 50 percent. In addition, larger intercoolers help preserve peak power during hard track use. The car's track mode also now features an even stiffer damper setting than before.

Along with the performance upgrades, two new appearance options are on board. Customers can now order a 2020 Ford GT in fully exposed carbon fiber with standard carbon-fiber wheels. They can also choose titanium lug nuts, six-point racing harness anchors, five different interior colors, and five brake caliper colors. The famous Gulf Racing Heritage livery (pictured at top) is still offered, although it's updated a bit: the orange and blue hues are now divided by a black pinstripe, and the carbon-fiber number is switched from 9 to 6 for the 2020 models. For the first time on a heritage model, carbon-fiber wheels are available. There are also two stripe options, along with seven standard paint colors if you don't want either the exposed-carbon or Gulf livery look.

This model will wrap up the GT's production run for good. Deliveries of this updated version will be ongoing until Ford eventually stops production altogether in 2022.
