Ford has revealed a slew of vehicles that it will launch over the next few years as well as announced its hybrid and EV plans that it will carry out on a similar time line. This list includes SUVs, sedans and of course whole list of electric vehicles. Here is a little bit on each of their announcements.
One of Ford’s most famous SUV moniker’s, the Bronco will debut in 2020 and is likely to share its underpinnings with the next generation Endeavour/Ranger. The teaser image showcases a boxy silhouette which is pretty much the defining feature of the model. Expect a range of petrol and hybrid engines on offer.
Ford Explorer and Edge ST
The world of high performance SUVs will get two new additions in the form of the Explorer and Edge ST. The former will be a full size vehicle and focus more cosmetic updates rather than out and out and performance. The Edge ST has already been revealed and will go on sale by the end of the year in America and European countries.
Next-generation Shelby Mustang
The highest performance Mustang that Ford makes, the Shelby Mustang, will enter a new generation within the next two years. The teaser images showcase a wide and meaner looking face. Of course, it is going to be V8-powered and most probably the signature Mustang 5.0-litre unit that’s powered every Shelby Mustang since the beginning.
Global compact SUV
Ford has announced that will be another compact SUV (global size) that will slot into the equivalent of the Indian market D-segment. The company has already said that it will be an urban oriented model but SUV in design and nature.
The American automaker’s new strategy includes going all-in on hybrids for cars like the F-150, Mustang, Explorer, Escape and Bronco. Yes, you have read it right, even the mighty Mustang will get a hybrid setup but it will be mated to the V8 to provide torque and probably pure electric power too.
Battery electric vehicle
The company is working on a slew of EVs of which the first one will be an electric SUV and most likely be called the Mach 1. These vehicles are expected to offer large battery ranges, autonomous driving systems and systems to help with sharing of vehicles among multiple users. Ford is already reworking its Dearborn plant to facilitate the production of these EV models.
