The new 2016 Ford Torino Shelby GT is finally here, after much ado, we might add. There have been some ruffled feathers about this car as of late, so let’s see what the full is all about.
Release Date of Ford Torino Shelby GT.
The new 2016 Ford Torino Shelby GT is going to be released in early 2016 most likely, especially if you do your shopping on the western markets, as this will undoubtedly raise some tensions and encourage buyers to make up their minds.
2016 Ford Torino Shelby GT Price
The $40,000 price tag is pretty fair considering the performances of this car as well as the effort that went into its production.
Ford Torino Shelby GT Exterior
On the outside, 2016 Ford Torino Shelby GT shares a number of features with the Mustang, including the general curves of the body and the fact that there seem to be no bumpers.
As with all cars where speed and performances are placed above all else, the front end of the vehicle is somewhat lower than the back, although this only seems to add to the aerodynamics of the vehicle, as do the extra 5 inches of length over the previous version. And everybody knows, all who drive fast cars could use every extra inch they can get.
Aluminum comprises most of the body, making this an extremely lightweight car, which might explain its awesome performance. 20 inch alloy wheels are also a nice addition. Newly redesigned LED lights result in an improved visibility and add to the visual appeal of the vehicle.
Interior of Ford Torino Shelby GT
The first thing you notice on the inside of the 2016 Ford Torino is the 8 inch LCD screen smack dab in the middle of the dashboard. You can use it to control various car functions, including navigation, air conditioning system and for infotainment purposes.
The steering wheel is down-lifted in order to facilitate improved handling to the driver. The seats are covered in high-quality leather, and they leave you plenty of room for head and legs, regardless of whether you’re driving or just came along for the ride.
As for connectivity, you’ve got standard USB and Bluetooth, plus a GPS system.
The infotainment system also features powerful speakers. Airbags are a given although this version has them down there too, in order to protect your legs as well as your upper body. You cannot help but appreciate the thought.
Ford Torino Shelby GT 2016 Engine
The power train under the hood of the new 2016 Ford Torino is similar to that of the Mustang GT, dishing out anything up to 435 hp, propelling itself to 60 mph in 4 seconds and to the top speed of 170 mph shortly thereafter.
Considering its power and specs, Ford Torino offers some interesting fuel efficiency, with 15 miles per gallon, and covering up to 25 miles on a highway before that same gallon is exhausted. So if you like your mileage high and your gasoline bills low, this might be the ideal car for you.
There are rumors about a NASCAR version with 440 hp and 210 mph top speed, but it is unlikely you will ever get behind the wheel of one of these. You might encounter a basic 3.7L V6 Ti-VCT engine, and its 300 hp plus 280 lb.-ft. of torque, though.
