New Ford Evos Concept

This is the new Ford Evos concept that they will be debuting at Frankfurt soon. It is powered by a hybrid powertrain and has four seats. Now that the boring details are out of the way, lets talk about the Evos’ real party piece: its looks.

Good God it is beautiful. A natural progression from their “kinetic” design language, this new look smashes the cliches that have abounded recent car design. For instance, the headlights are slim and svelte (not bulging monstrosities that look better on cartoons than cars), the grill is not obscene in size, and there are curves in the place of slashes and edges. Luckily, we don’t have to wait long to see its influence. The first model to receive these styling clues will be revealed in four months.

But seriously Ford, if you want to win hearts, shrink the car up, keep it rear wheel drive, and give it an Ecoboost four cylinder. Mustang who?

Look for the debut in Frankfurt for this stunner soon

  

Ford Teases Frankfurt Concepts

The Frankfurt Auto Show is rapidly approaching so automakers are already trying to build buzz for their debuts. Ford is no exception. Not only are they touting their largest display to date, but also four new vehicles. Not many details are known, but one is a concept and the other three are production models. One production model is forecasted to be the Focus ST. The performance Focus is slated to debut with a 240hp eco-boosted 4 cyl, and the looks to match the performance. However, details of the Focus ST have been widely known for some time, so Ford must have something really exciting up their sleeve on the concept side.

I’m placing my bets on either a Focus coupe/Capri remake. A coupe version of the Focus is the missing link in the lineup so it is logical addition to have debut. It would probably compete with the wildly successful VW Scirocco that we don’t get here in the states.

On the other hand, the Capri is a much-loved icon in Europe, and has been long heralded to make a return. Additionally, in July, Ford debuted a Falcon concept in Australia , so a performance concept for Europe is not completely unfounded. It’s a long shot, but if they could make a RWD compact like the old Capri, for the price of a Focus, it would be heaven. All these debuts are slated to go global, so hope for the best because we will get them too. Stay tuned for September’s Frankfurt Auto Show
