Oh. The Rear door is no more ornated by the spare wheel.
Still it doesn't belittle any of its SUV looks

Get ready Fortuner, Pajero sport and likes!

I think this looks fantastic and finally the Fortuner will face some heat. Ford can manage 50% of the Fortuners sales with this one and that is a decent tally of 800-900 cars a month. Ford has now also learned the value game in India and i will expect them to price this competitively and load it with goodies.

The concept looks great, and I doubt much will be changed in the production version. Although it does seem to have a splattering of Grand Cherokee elements in it.

A welcome change from the outgoing model. As a friend said - watchout fortuner/Pajero Sport; Ford is launching its own missile at your yard soon.

Looks good,

Another one to loose the Tail Mounted Spare Wheel.

The Wheel Alloys are Modern and edgy, as also various elements of the design. Wider cabin than the Pajero Sport, similar to the Fortuner in size. Presuming the antiquated rear leafspring suspension is replaced with a modern solution. Should do well in India but needs to undercut the Fortuner by min Rs. 2-3L to make sell in decent numbers hard to break the Toyota stranglehold now.

I love it!

If Ford manages to keep its traditional tough build, and friendly handling DNA alive in this car, along with a nice A/T + Diesel combo, it should give the Fortuner very serious competition. Would love to drive one of these.

Hope they have managed to fix the interiors w.r.t. under-thigh support. That was one serious drawback in the current model.

I like the way it looks, still does not make it butch looking like a Fortuner.

Looks toned down and I feel has design misses to match the front and rear.

I am sticking with Fortuner as my choice!!
