The cars displayed at Ford’s "Showroom of the Future" are all planned for production between now and 2010, including a new "B-car" that has been talked up by the company’s North American head, Mark Fields. The four-door sedan will feature Ford’s new three-bar grille design and wraparound headlights. Powered by a 1.8L engine, the new car is scheduled to go into production in 2008 and will compete with econo cars such as the Honda Fit.
Other cars included the refreshed F-series range that will tackle GM’s new Silverado and Sierra, as well as Toyota’s new pickup. To give its range a competitive edge, Ford will offer new powertrain options, including a diesel engine. Also on display was the Lincoln MKS sedan, refreshed Focus, a new MPV, Fusion sedan, the Five Hundred sedan and the next Mustang coupe.
