Ford GT - Performance, Price, and Photos
If you’re going to celebrate a birthday, how would you do it? Ford decided for their 100th anniversary they needed something special. So special, that they revived a name that had been absent for 36 years: the GT40. The end result was the Ford GT, the first true street-legal supercar from the blue oval ever.
Using the pedigree and heritage of their Le Mans-winning GT40, the Ford GT is essentially the modernized vision of the iconic racing car. With only 4,038 of these American legends made, seeing one in the flesh is a true rarity.
The first-gen Ford GT was a success and inspired Ford to create a second generation for the 2017 model year. Although the second-gen Ford GT is a technological marvel, it doesn’t hug the heartstrings like its predecessor. The first-gen Ford GT is like being in a 1960s dream where the sound of a V-8 rumbling heart, was the only thing that mattered.

Available in several flavors including a more consumer-friendly Bronco Sport, Ford offered a more off-road-oriented Sasquatch package for those folks wanting to venture far off the beaten track.
But just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, Ford chose to apply the full-blown Raptor treatment to the Bronco. Unofficially dubbed the ’BRAPTOR’,the Bronco Raptor which made its debut earlier this year in January, does carry a price premium. The question is if the Bronco Raptor is worth that price premium and how exactly does it square up against the standard Bronco? Well, you’re about to find out.

Ford revived the Maverick moniker in 2021 for its latest truck, which sits at the bottom of the hierarchy.

Ford has created a well-rounded product that ticks most of the boxes and doesn’t come with any major deal-breakers.
