Will Ford build a midsize truck with the new ecoboost engine? I think the Sport Trac would be the perfect fit.
The compact and midsize pickup market in the U.S. has been declining for more than 15 years, having gone from almost 8 percent of the industry in the mid 1990s to just over 2 percent last year. For North America, we are prioritizing our resources to support continued improvement of our best-selling F-Series pickups— and that continued investment is resulting in class-leading fuel economy* performance, with all-new V-6 engines for the F-150 in 2011, and more.
*F-150: EPA-estimated 17 city/23 hwy/19 combined mpg, 3.7L V6 4×2. Class is Full-Size Pickups under 8,500 lbs. GVWR, Non-Hybrid. Super Duty®: Based on Ford drive-cycle tests of comparably equipped 2011/2012 Ford and 2011/2012 competitive models. Class is Full-Size Pickups over 8,500 lbs. GVWR.
