Driving the GT is very easy, and the big car feels light and nimble from behind the wheel. Regardless of its potential performance, driving the Ford GT is not as comfortable as you might think, the suspension is not a problem if it is hit by a small bump, but it will still send a hard impact to the cabin.
Interior, Comfort and Luggage
The interior is very attractive but for different reasons, the interior is very minimalist and focused on the driver, with almost every control passed down to the steering wheel inspired by a racing car. When you get into this car you will feel like there is a challenge, but once you are in there, you will see the driver’s seat which is very uncomfortable. Instead, Ford engineered the pedals and steering wheel to match the driver’s position in the fixed seat. The speedometer looks as if it was taken directly from a Ford GT race car, and the head unit is made very minimalist that can control the infotaiment function.

Ford GT is a car that includes a low-volume, ultra high performance model, so it is not tested by one of the agents who conducted this evaluation. Likewise, it does not have Driver Assistance technology which in other modern cars is a core feature.
Warranty and Care Coverage
Apart from the exclusivity and high price tags, the Ford GT 2020 does have a high-quality guarantee in general like the other types of Ford cars that we know of. However, Ford did not limit mileage to limited coverage and power train over their three-year period.
