Mystery Ford SUV: what is it?


 This is obviously a Ford...

I was told it could be the next generation Ecosport. Which does make some sense since the current Ecosport came out in 2012 (although only in 2018 in the US) 

But the grille in the photo above is mostly fake. Which also means it could be an EV. We know Ford has been working on a "smaller than Mustang Mach-e" electric model. They also have some deal with VW to share their MEB platform.

What do you think?

What is this?

It is a Ford SUV for India based on a Mahindra

No basis for this but the shape just makes me think Edge. The edge did just get an MB like interior for China.

Sidenote: I think the Edge is a useless, and ugly vehicle in the lineup. I really think they could spend less money to develop a car about this size by shortening the Explorer and floating out the roof. Sure it will look like a fake Range Rover sport, but it would sell like hot cakes.

Agreed.. Edge/Nautilus are the last remaining products built on the Fusion/MKZ/Continental platform, and their eventual replacements will likely be based on either a stretched Escape or shortened Explorer platform (my guess is the latter).

Looks like a Ford Tuscon. 🤦‍♂️

Whatever they are replacing the Fusion with needs this face. It's still truck-ish and aggressive. Ford needs to up their game a bit and take more cues from their foreign teams.

Too bad we won't get anything close to this stateside. Ford always gives us their most dull designs and watered down interiors.

It is right there on the bumper. It is a Brurlapcar.

Could also be the upcoming Fusin/Mondeo replacing raised wagon.

Appears "big" - maybe a EV Expedition?
