CES 2016 will witness the returning face of Ford Motor Company. There will be on-stage evidence of the company’s ongoing holistic measures that promise innovative products and services for the convenience of its customers.
Ford Motor Company, which is headed by President and CEO Mark Fields, had first presented itself in CES nine years ago. In fact, it was the first automobile manufacturer to have a marked presence in the show in that era. Mark revealed that the company was all set to put a step forward again in the same direction in 2016 by showcasing its Ford Smart Mobility Plan at the CES.
Ford Motors works consistently to find innovative methods and smart solutions in the world of automobiles so that customers get a richer experience, the world gets more connected and mobile, better autonomous vehicles are produced, and research data and analytics become enhanced.
The first automotive news conference in CES 2016 that is being hosted by Ford is scheduled on the CES Press Day from 7:30 to 8.00 am PST on January 5th, Tuesday, at Mandalay Bay. CES 2016 is owned and produced by the CTA (Consumer Technology Association) which was formerly known as the CEA (Consumer Electronics Association).
It is the world’s largest hands-on exhibit of the latest innovations and is set to be held in Las Vegas, Nevada from Jan 6 to 9, 2016. CTA has proudly chosen the 2017 Ford GT as the CES 2016 Official Vehicle on the basis of its ultra high performance as a supercar that depicts exemplary use of technology in aerodynamics with its EcoBoost performance and carbon fibre light weight body.
Ford Motor Company’s commitment to innovative performance is completely embodied in the all-new supercar. The company’s new product launches have been all inculcated in the Ford GT which has advanced lightweight carbon fibre composites and other technologies being displayed at the CES show.
As expressed by Raj Nair, VP, Global Product Development, Ford Group, the company proudly brings in the Ford GT as the ultimate enthusiast supercar and it being chosen as the Official Vehicle of CES is an honour for Ford.
The innovative technological advances that the Ford GT includes will be widely used in the future products too; an operational truth which reflects Ford’s commitment towards continuing improvement for its customers.
Ford GT is inhabited by a 600-plus-horsepower EcoBoost twin-turbocharged V6 engine which exhibits marvellous next-generation features and is highly efficient in creating an endurance racing derived power-train. It is accompanied by a seven-speed transaxle with a dual clutch which makes gear changing almost instantaneous as well as gives exceptional driver control.
The supercar has a predominant aerodynamic design that is very well depicted in its slopes and shape working to minimize drag. An adjustable active rear spoiler is connected to driver input and speed and it can change its height and pitch angle as required by the vehicle.
An all-new F1 inspired steering wheel is complete with all the important driver controls, thus allowing undisturbed driving access to the transmission paddle-shift controls with a uniform steering column. The instrument cluster has an interesting fully digital display that focuses on a plethora of driver friendly features.
It can be configured according to various driving situations and multiple driving modes. The Ford GT is hitting markets 2016 onwards, and will be available in selected parts of the world in celebration with the 50th Ford GT race cars’ anniversary of having placed 1-2-3 at the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans.
