I hope your car search is going well!
GT stands for grand touring. This term popped up in the mid-1900s to describe a fast, two-person vehicle with plenty of room for luggage—envision the perfect weekend getaway car and you’ve got a perfect visual for the original GT models.
Over the years the term has evolved and has come to be associated with a range of characteristics that vary by maker. Ford was one of the first-ever American carmakers to distinguish a car model with the use of “GT” as part of the name.
Today, Ford Mustang GTs typically boast a high-performance V-8 engine, upgraded suspension, a dual exhaust system, special tires, and the brand’s signature side paint stripes.
