Although the aim is not long for the US, it appears that Ford is operating on a small pickup vehicle, the media claimed. The unnamed sources of the media state that the unibody & new vehicle will slot beneath the Ranger and will be fueled by a range of transverse-equipped, turbocharged, and naturally aspirated four-cylinders. Design work and engineering reportedly started off various months back and the first samples are claimed to hit the test beds shortly.
Sources also claim that the compact vehicle will most expectedly (and quite instinctively) be dubbed as the Courier. It seems that Ford even filed a patent for the name earlier in July 2016. Proper Ford fans will observe, on the other hand, that a Courier is already present in the form of a Fiesta-based, small truck traded in South America. One more possible name for the small vehicle might be Ranchero—a legacy moniker taken from an El Camino contestant that Ford developed all over the ’70s and ’60s.
On a related note, Ford is powering the limited manufacturing of its $400,000 GT supercar to sustain with requirement, the firm earlier claimed to the media. The Ford GT is the company’s answer to high-performance sports vehicles from rivals such as Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren, Porsche, and others. Orders have been overtaking supply, indicating Ford to increase production from the 1,000 GTs that it initially planned to manufacture in 2016 to 1,350. The firm is also expanding its manufacturing deadline to 2022 from 2020.
“The reaction to our Ford GT has been unparalleled, with original demand outpacing supply by over six-to-one,” claimed director of Ford Performance, Hermann Salenbauch, to the media in an interview. “By expanding the Ford GT manufacturing run for a restricted period, we are capable of maintaining the individuality of the ultra-desirable super vehicle while providing the ownership experience to a large pool of users.”
