Sources have captured the GT500 prototype near Ford's Dearborn Proving Grounds (DPG).

The prototype features strategically placed camo on the decklid and the rear window, which both hide a modified rear spoiler and conceal a full rollcage.

The all-new GT500 is expected around 2025, so it's uncertain if Ford is working on a special edition GT500 or instead testing components for the next-gen GT500.

'24 Ford Explorer Timberline Spotted in Dearborn

Also captured near the DPG was the '24 Ford Explorer Timberline. 

Although Ford has already introduced an electric version in the European market, the United States market is focusing on a refresh for the internal combustion engine (ICE) Explorers.

The '24 Timberline will be primarily a carryover compared to the other '24 Explorer trims. 

While no significant powertrain changes are expected for the '24 model, there might be slight improvements to the performance of the 2.3L EcoBoost engine and the 3.3L hybrid engine. These changes could result in a slight bump in power and fuel economy.
