This car is the base for the next Ford Kuga and Escape and it’s called the Vertrek. Unveiled at the 2011 Detroit autoshow, the car’s design is based on Ford’s global kinetic design philosophy. This distinctive and continually evolving design language is rooted in creating cars that appear to be in motion even when stationary. It’s nice to see a macho car like this, now that all crossovers are getting girly looks! The car will be built on Ford’s global C-segment platform and will feature an efficient but powerful 1.6 liter engine. Ford Vertrek concept features the highly efficient 1.6-liter four-cylinder Ford EcoBoost engine, giving the vehicle the power of a larger engine yet delivering significantly better fuel economy and CO2 emissions. By 2013, 80 percent of Ford’s global nameplates and 90 percent of Ford’s North American nameplates will have an EcoBoost option. The European versions will get a 2.0 liter TDCi diesel as well. “The Ford Vertrek concept is inspired by contemporary compact sport utility customers’ expectations and aspirations,” said J Mays, group vice president, Design, and chief creative officer. “It unites stylish design, world-class craftsmanship and outstanding capability to present a fresh vision that we believe will resonate globally.”
