2021 BMW 5-Series vs. 2021 Ford GT


The 2021 Ford GT is one of the world’s most powerful super cars, and it designed to compete with the likes of Porsche, McLaren, Lamborghini and Ferrari. Despite its Le Mans level performance, it still handles like a Mustang. But can it beat the 2021 BMW 5-Series, a car which has received praise for its outstanding technology, earthshattering performance and lavish cabin?

Design & Style

The BMW 5-Series can carry up to four passengers in comfort. The seats are powered and can be adjusted sixteen ways, and can be heated or cooled depending on the season. The touch displays within the interior have been enlarged and are now 12 inches in size, and the exterior is sporty with an extended wheel base and nose while the deck has been shortened. BMW’s signature kidney grille can be seen in front.

The newest Ford GT comes with multiple aesthetic updates, including a revised graphics suite with colors that are fully customizable, such as Lightning Blue style stripes which run along the car’s top or Frozen White. It comes with twenty inch wheels and the lower section can be covered in carbon fiber, while the cabin is a lovely mixture of bluish micro suede and black leather surfaces.

Technology & Safety

Like many super cars, the Ford GT doesn’t come with driver assistance, which doesn’t make sense given its half million dollar price tag. To be frank, a car this expensive should be equipped with the best safety gadgets that money can buy. It does have carbon ceramic brakes, and amenities within its interior include 7 inch touch displays, navigation that is built in and voice commands.

The BMW 5-Series has captured the prestigious Top Safety Pick award. This is due to its extensive array of driver assistance features, which includes LED headlights which are adaptive, pedestrian detection, emergency automated brakes, blind area monitoring and automated high beams. It was given at least 6 crash tests and aced every single one. Luxuries within its cabin include voice commands, climate control, and premium audio with ventilated seats.


Those that purchase the BMW M5 Competition will get a V8 engine that can generate 617 horsepower, which enables it to blast from zero to sixty in about 3.1 seconds. The Ford GT is outfitted with a V6, dual turbocharged engine that is 3.5 liter and capable of generating 660 horsepower with 500 pounds of torque, which enables it to accelerate from zero to sixty in 3 seconds.

The Bottom Line

The BMW 5-Series outclasses the Ford GT in nearly every way. It carries more passengers, has touchscreens which are almost twice as large and has far superior safety credentials, making it the winner.
