Ford Evos Concept: What Future Ford Vehicles Might Look Like

You’ve heard us use the term “global design” before on TheFordStory.com; it basically refers to the foundation of new Ford products that can be used worldwide. To simplify that even further, it’s like automotive DNA. And, it’s also part of the One Ford product plan. Read more…

UncleBen Hey FoMoCO!!! Just wanted to say that it really is time for an Ford Mustang GTX (the x is for AWD) It's the car Will Smith should have featured in "I AM Legend". Kinda like an All American answer to Nissan's GTR. I live in new england, we'll take that in an Arctic Edition Please!!! Listen to your smart-consumers: BUILD THE THING!!!...

Roger Ford definately needs to bring back a small pickup. Either like the Ranger or Sport Track (don't need both). F150 is too large for many casual suburban needs. Have had this comment from MANY folks.

James D Hi Ford, I am writing tonight to see if you guys could "Please" bring back your Ford Ranger or Make a Small truck around the F-100. First of all, I was wondering if you could please listen to Juston Preble about putting a 1.6 or 2.0 Eco Boost in the New Future Improved Ranger or F-100. Second, When you do make this new modeled truck make sure that you use the designs of your 2003,2004, & 2011 Ford Ranger Edge Truck Designs & your New Designs of the 2011-2012 Ford F-150 Ecoboost & Lariet models...you can mix the ideas in the new modeled truck..I would leave the Ranger hood & the top(grill-with the holes) in the new truck; but I would have the front and back look like either your Ford F-150 Ecoboost or Lariet. Make sure you add some awesome hub caps (like your 1998 Ford Ranger) to the new truck; as well as have a crewcab and stepside/ flareside models. If you can have the new truck priced affordable..we would greatly appreciate it here/ & Make sure you bring back the light metallic gray paint for the truck. Plus, In the near future try to have your F-150 have a Stepside or Flareside as well, We liked them when you made them like that in the 1990's and early 2000's. Thank you Ford & Have a Wonderful Night, Jay

jorge salazar put the new 305 hp V6 on the on a new 2013 or 2014 SVT focus and make it awd like the sho and for it to have selectshift with a 6 speed so it could stand up to the competition like the lancer or suburus yea yall made a turbo focus but it only makes 250 to the engine thats not impressive and on the rangers fx4 should also have that engine unlike that crappy 4.0 gas gusler that only make like 210 hp and 240 torque
2 year(s) ago via
Griffin Ripley Here are a few of my ideas --next Fusion should have the 2.5 litre for the base model, the 2.0T ecoboost for the high trim, and the 3.7l for the Sport (give it ALL 300+hp, don't dumb the motor down). And make the trans a 6sp manual (for all 3 or 4 motors!!!) with an optional 8speed automatic. Perhaps a diesel model too. Also perhaps a Fusion SHO??? 3.5TT 6MT Fusion anybody!?! --- Taurus ---> Tighter steering, lighten it up, revise the rear end a little bit more. It's just a bit too big. Give the SHO an optional 6speed manual --- Explorer --- Chassis Refinement and liven up that 2.0T!! --- Escape ---> Same setup as the aformentioned Fusion!! That would be unbelievable! --- F-150 ---> keep up the fine work! It's perfect ---- Mustang---> Independent Rear Suspension done properly. Make the 5.0l GT have 420 horses, a Bullitt model have 435, and the Boss should go to 450. --- Focus --- MORE MANUAL TRANSMISSIONS!!! I am a huge Ford guy. Aged 16 one of my dreams is to work for Ford. I just love the company so much. I'm actually wearing a Ford shirt right now!! Anyways, even if my ideas are terrible, which you all probably think they are, keep up the unbelievably fine work and the brand will remain as the absolute superior automaker!! With love, Griffin R, Philadelphia PA

Juston Preble Ranger needs an Eco Boost, NAV, Rear Disk Brakes, and over the top Sound insulation from Engine and Road Noise. Also lighten up the hood, it weighs a ton. And make these options available in the single cab....

Juston Preble Give us the 3.5L Eco Boost in the E-Series Passenger Van, and make it available with 4x4 just like the F-150.

Michael Hansel A no brainer is putting a 3.5L ecoboost in an expediton. Ford would sell tons of them!!

Mark My Ford. I like the direction Ford has gone with its vehicles. I was recently, unexpectedly in the market for a new vehicle. I decided I needed an AWD/4WD and it had to fit a bicycle in the back. I am used to pretty good gas milage and good running gear. The new Explorer is a beautiful vehicle, but was just too big, and there is no 4 wheel drive with the ECO Boost 4 Cyl. The 6 is a very smooth engine, but does not get good enough gas mileage to make the list. Escape made the list of cars I wanted, and specifically the hybrid version which sips gas, goes off at stoplights and has great reliability. Problem is, you are building 18 or 19 gas powered Escapes for every hybrid you produce. In addition, the reliability is no where near the reliability of the hybrid Escape because the drivetrain in the gas version is completely different. I did drive the 4-cyl 4WD Escape and priced it. It was much less expensive than the vehicle I eventually bought. That decision was made due to reliability. However, the Escape I really wanted was the hybrid version with cloth seats no Nav and some of the other frills taken out. MSRP on that vehicle would have been about 2 - 3 thousand over the vehicle I bought. Problem was, I could not find one, and couldn't wait 4-8 weeks to order one. I drove two hybrid Escapes in my area, (I'm not sure it wasn't the same vehicle) and they were each loaded with accessories making the cost in the 36K range. I was told that Ford doesn't allocate hybrids in my area because they don't sell here. Well, I would have gladly paid a little more for my hybrid Escape, but I was not interested in paying for accessories I don't want. So really, are they not selling because people don't want them? NO they are not selling because you are trying to make the Escape hybrid a mini luxury car for cool people. Dumb idea. I'm frustrated that you say you are focused on electric and hybrid vehicles if you won't sell me the one I want simply because it is not cheaper to operate than a gas powered version of the same vehicle.

MD What the heck happened to the new Mustang?! And I am saying this without expletives. Something is wrong with the Ford body designers...the body lines are starting to look like the awful stuff from late 1979 thru mid to late 80's. Argh...

George Grudziak So i just recently saw online that the Ford Fusion is no longer available with a navigation system? What's the deal with that? that was a disappointment....you shouldnt have to make people wait until the 2013 Fusion comes out...which nobody knows because its not listed on the Ford site as a future car. ot a good decision Ford.

Josh Newest Ford cars should include 2 things- Profile Driving, where all drivers of one car set a profile with their favorite music, temperature, and if you have no profile, click no profile mode. 2nd, C- shaped headrests, to prevent possible neck injuries while sleeping in a car.

Bob All of fords vehicles should have side view mirrors that have an auto tilt from when you put your car in reverse. It would help greatly when trying not to hit the curb when parallel parking.

William Kohn On the idea of a NEW THUNDERBIRD. Make it as a competitor to the Corvette. Make it so it puts fear into the heart of Corvette owners. Have it handle and capable of driving very fast. Design it so it looks like it is going fast when parked. Race it in SCCA and the Rolex series. Price it between a Corvette and a Viper. Make it fast and light. Oh did I mention that it should be fast?

Dave Tongue I'd like a practical 5 seater sports coupe hatchback along the lines of the now discontinued Alfa Romeo GT. Only with the DV6 in and a six speed gearbox and stop/start technology so it gets into the low tax band (Plus more powerful options of course). Make sure it's got a long bonnet and a short tail, stick a Capri badge on the back and make some profit!! Where do I sign!!

Bill Hight Let's be realistic. The engines of the past and body styles of the past were great. Our reality is we need the power and reliability from the past in smaller engines and smaller bodies. A slick Austrian Ranger in the US with the Eco engines, six speed transmissions, and seating for 5/6 would be welcomed with open arms. Also, put some luxury in the small truck like a power seat for tall or short drivers' etc.

Steven McKenzie I've been the proud owner of a Ford product for quite a while. We've had an LTD, an Aerostar, a Taurus, an Escort, a 2000 Focus ZTS and just bought a 2012 Focus SEL sedan. I instantly fell in love with the new Focus, in fact we chose it over a similarily equipped Fusion, but felt more at home in the Focus. I had hoped Ford would have given us more choices in engines, like a 1.6 ecoboost, or a diesel, as I have a long commmute. The only complaint, is that with Ford's commitment to safety, the Fiesta and the Focus S, and SE don't get rear disc brakes as standard.
2 year(s) ago via Facebook
Luke Denton use the same material and technology that we have today but use the designs from the good ol body styles from say 50's to 86ish do like a throw back kinda deal where the vehicles are safe to todays standards but have the class and classic vibes as the classics bring back the fast back and the galaxy and dont get me started on the pickups you need to bring back the late 70's body styles they were mean i just bought a 77 ranger and its aggressive definatly need to bring the full size ranger back and the ranchero

Andrew Weigle Ford fusion needs a powerful v8 option ok you most likely won't go with that one so here's one if you value your customers' and potential customers input how about a heated and cooled cup holder in the new Lincolns that has a sensor to detect hot or cold beverages and keep them hot or cold and shuts itself off automatically when he beverage is removed make sure you test this well to avoid a recall I feel this feature would be an excellent fit for a luxury vehicle and how about a small safe or lock box inside the glove compartment of the Lincolns for customers to secure valuables???? at least do the cupholder one!! and throw in a heated steering wheel too!!

Rustle See Keep up the great work. That said, I would love SYNC to be tweaked a little. A little more user friendly. And I find it funny that the car knows my phone is in the car. It knows when I get a text while driving. It knows how to read it. But I can't respond via SYNC till I pull over and stop. I get safety.. but let's be real. Most probably just end up using text on their phone because of this.

Robert Martin y'all foresaw the need for a cell phone slot in the dash in 1991. But seriously, Ford builds great trucks. Drop the price a bit and you'll keep this 22 year old for life.

James Hay Stop using Volvo engines in the RS models. Ford know how to build a great engine. The RS badge should only be given to Ford or Cosworth engined models. And why did you call the Focus RS the RS500? It may be good, but it's no Ford Sierra RS500 Cosworth.

Andrew Carter i think really what you need to do ford is bring back the awesome torino and you could really do good with it if you gave it the same 1970 look but made it out of different materials and gave it a glossy finish

James Foster Not putting the 3 valve 4.6 and a 5 speed automatic in the Crown Vic, Grand Marquis, and Town Car back in '05 was a mistake. No wonder you hardly sold any outside of fleet sales. The competition blew them away. Had that been done, I feel enough money would have come out of it to redesign the car to meet the new roof crush standards and old folks, cab companies, and police departments everywhere would have rejoiced.

Our American Cars A true sports car would be nice to compete against Chevy's Corvette and Dodge's Viper. I think it would do good for the Ford nameplate. I love the Mustang to death but it is a Muscle car that needs to compete only with the Muscle Cars. We can not keep relying on it to fight the vette as well, even though it does a great job at it. We need a 2 seater!

Jeff Thompson Build either a rear wheel drive or all wheel drive luxury sedan that will compete with the Cadilac CTS-V. Take the Ford Five Hundred make it rearwheel drive then throw in a supercharged 5.4 with a killer suspension 6 speed trans and a luxurios interior with a bad azz sound system. And build it in America

James Foster I like the look of the '11 Explorer steering wheel and I like the secondary controls on it better than the ones on the '12 Focus but, the actual steering wheel of the new Focus is much more comfortable to drive with than the 3 spoke wheel. Looks don't make up for the annoying ergonomics of that design.

James Foster Move the 2012 Focus SE's input jack somewhere that the occupants can actually get to it. It's so far up in the glove box that your face has to be nearly in the passenger seat to even see it. Why is it not in the same place that the Fiesta has it? A split rear seat would have been more user friendly as well.

Randall Powell On my F150 the box could use a little more space from the cab. In the winter's we have in Alberta, the snow sit's there and the melting water from the roof runs down the back window and ceates ice chunks which cause a lot of noise and scratches from rubbing as I drive. Only problem I found.

Garrett Spicer @Charles Rosenow: You usually dont take an old car to a dealership. its not worth the money youre paying to get the car fixed vs what its worth. You should be taking it to a plain inner city garage that you can trust. The shop at the dealership is mainly for people who paid that little extra to have their car covered while under a warranty.

John Gratson I love my 02 ranger xlt. I wish the 4.0L v6 had better power and wish it would be offered with bigger cab than the extended cab i have. Toyota offers a crew cab which is really big for the tacoma and also has a 4.0L that puts out a lot of power and torque. I think it would be a good idea to update the ranger front to back top to bottom.
