Yesterday, Ford revealed a drawing of a new compact crossover model that’s scheduled to hit European showrooms early next year where it joins other spectacular Blue Oval models such as the C-Max MPV as well as the new Mondeo sedan and Focus hatch.

Now, Ford CEO Alan Mulally and product development boss Derrick Kuzak are reported to be interested in bringing some of these models to the US, namely, the C-max MPV and upcoming Kuga crossover. The move is part of Ford’s push for smaller and more economical models, which may also see some platform sharing for future US designed models.

One car that has been ruled out is the award-winning S-Max as it was deemed too expensive, an inside source has revealed to AutomobilWoche. Instead, product planners in the US will look at other models based on Ford’s C-platform design such as the new Kuga, but any introduction is still three to four years away.
