Ford set to launch 3 new models in 2015

Ford India plans to go ballistic and launch 3 news models from its stable in 2015. The three models include a small car, a compact sedan and an SUV.

The small car will be based on the outgoing Figo and is expected to come with sharper styling, better interiors and more features. The new Figo will come with upgraded interiors and space. Driving dynamics and handling as usual will be the new Ford Figo`s plus points. Ford will be launching the new Ford Figo with a 1 litre ecoboost engine that already powers the Ecosport compact SUV. The Ecosport develops 125 PS of max power, while the new Ford Figo will come equipped with a 100 PS power plant.


Ford will also bring in the Figo compact sedan which will be priced aggressively courtesy under four metres excise benefits. The Figo sedan will look similar to the Ka+ which was unveiled in Brazil recently. It will compete with the likes of Maruti Swift Dzire, Hyundai Xcent, and Honda Amaze. It will feature class leading interior space and features. The engine options would include a 1 litre 100bhp Ecoboost engine and a 1.5 litre diesel engine mated to a 5 speed gearbox. The Figo sedan `s driving dynamics, handling and steering feedback will be best in class.


The third model would be an all new SUV based on a new platform. The new SUV will be a seven seater and will directly compete with the likes of Toyota Fortuner, Santa Fe and Mitsubishi Pajero. The Endeavour was plagued by a bumpy ride and an unusable third row. The new SUV from Ford will eliminate these negatives and will come with better handling, braking and more features. Engine options would include a diesel mill mated to a 5 speed gear box.

All three models will feature Ford’s new SYNC multimedia interface. It will get AppLink as well. Ford is working on increasing the apps for Applink and by the time the three models will be launched in 2015 Ford will load Applink with enough app options for customers to choose from.
