Because Ford regularly rotates engineers between Ford Performance and its product engineering teams, technology and durability learnings are quickly transferred from various motorsports programs to Ford Performance products and then to the company’s entire product lineup.
These lessons include EcoBoost® engine innovations and advanced drive mode technologies developed in the Le Mans-winning Ford GT, Baja-proven F-150 Raptor and track-capable Mustang Shelby GT350 programs that now are offered on vehicles such as the new Edge ST, Expedition and F-Series.
“We are fortunate to have such fire-breathing enthusiasts who live to make our Ford Performance vehicles world-class, then can take that know-how to our mainstream offerings so all of our customers benefit,” said Hermann Salenbauch, global director, Ford Performance vehicle programs. “It’s an age-old industry mindset, you can’t create great performing products without the commitment and passion of the people behind them.”
