Ford is known for being one such auto manufacturing company that has been producing some classic supercars that have taken the automobile industry by a storm since 2005. With the latest buzz regarding the 2017 Ford GT, we are here to give you the five modes that would be a part of the 2017 Ford GT.
These are the five modes of the 2017 Ford GT
- Normal Mode
With the name of the mode, we get to know about its straightforward and everyday mode factor. The ride height sits at 120 mm, and damper stiffness is quite average. But when one tries the “Comfort” button from this drive mode will soften the suspension up a bit. The cars hydraulically-actuated rear wing stays down till the speed threshold of 90 mph is crossed. When the speed is dropped to 81 mph, the rare wings then retracts. In Normal mode, throttle response, transmission shift scheduling, traction control, and stability control are in their default settings.
- Wet Mode
The wet mode is just like the normal mode except that the traction and stability control systems are uplifted, and ready to intervene would be the vehicle’s sensors detects wheel spin or an excessive yaw rate. Throttle mapping is also made less aggressive, lest the driver accidentally breaks traction with their right foot.
- Sport Mode
This is going to be the most attractive feature of the 2017 Ford GT, as according to reports the Sports mode of the 2017 Ford GT maintains the same 120-mm ride height, but the dampers get firmed up a little to get better control of the body motion. The traction and stability control systems slow down up, allowing a bit more thrill before they intervene, and an anti-lag system comes on to allow the turbo spooled by managing throttle opening and fueling. The rear wing then comes up at 71 mph and then lowers again after speed has dropped below 45 mph.
- Track Mode
This mode of the 2017 Ford GT allows the rear wing to be raised full-time, and shutters at the front of the car close to allow the air into a pair of high-pressure down force channels. The wing is known to act as an air brake in this driving mode, slanting forward whenever the driver hits the brake pedal to provide quicker deceleration. This mode also drops the ride height by 50 mm, lowering the Ford GT’s center of gravity for improved cornering.
- Vmax Mode
Then at the end, we have the Vmax mode where the rear wing goes and stows itself, while the shutters in the nose open up again to reduce the downforce of the front-end. The ride height remains low, and in a way, we can say that the Vmax is essentially Track mode without the downforce.
In conclusion, we suggest you start saving up for this mean machine to take you for a hell of a ride. Till then keep checking for the latest updates on the 2017 Ford GT release date.
