Ford Travels East With the "Equator" SUV
Date Posted 09-29-2005
TOKYO — Ford will use the Tokyo Motor Show to unveil its new sport-utility, the Equator. The basic SUV will be aimed at the Asian market.
Ford currently offers a Ranger-based SUV, called the Everest (Endeavor in India), in various Asian markets, including Thailand. Recently, Isuzu and Toyota stepped up their efforts in the ever growing pickup truck and pickup-based SUV markets, which prompted this response from Ford.
Based on the first sketch, released Wednesday, the Equator will have more contemporary looks. The SUV is powered by a 3.0-liter, V6 engine and has an "intelligent" four-wheel-drive system.
Ford is resurrecting the Equator name from 2000, when the moniker was used on an F-150-based sport-utility truck.
What is the price ? If it's around 1.2-1.3M ok yan.
Is this Diesel, most likely it is a Gas.
Any real pics?
The only way Toyota will behave is to have a good alternative and competitor for the Fortuner.
I don't like the name. but I wonder what Ford has up its sleeve in order to counter Toyota's Fortuner. ::)
i like the curves.sna ilabas din d2 sa u.s.a yan.in a way medyo hawig ng konti sa lincoln aviator yung sides nya. :) ;)
from where i'm sitting what ford has is still a drawing. so kahit na pumila ako for a fortuner now mauuna pa lumabas yung fortuner bago yan. ;D
but from the drawing it looks good. but imo, it's coming to the party too late.
Looks like the old CR-V na pinormahan ng A-TOY..matatagalan pa yan ;)
Of course futuristic looking cars always look great on paper and watercolor ;D
Although looks like Ford seems to be focusing on the Asian market more than before
Looks like a face lifted Escape
