Default Re: Ford Equator (harvick2921)

There was a para or 2 about this vehicle in the UK mag Autocar.

Supposedly the (un-named) designer claims the inspiration for the grille comes from the bonnet bulge of his own Falcon XR8.

I'm not sure how a grille can be inspired by a bonnet bulge, and I can't see any resemblance myself. But it implies the Equator was a Ford Australia effort, unless someone in Detroit's running around in one of these:

Brings a tear to my eye, good ol Ford Australia! I can see what he means, and its there, just look at how the bonnet buldge goes, although not similar to the actual concept, the idea is similar (god thats confusing)! I say put bonnet buldges on the rest of the V8 Ford linup! Like a V8 signature for Ford models...

That IS an Escape.. very mildly warmed over. Updated w/ the 221-horse 3 liter and 6-speed auto. Ford is contemplating another mid-life warmover before it's finally completely replaced.

I was hoping to see a truck bigger than the expedition and smaller than the excursion. But I was wrong and I also see that Ford has learned from their mistake of the ultimate suv in the excursion.

This is a joke.... it looks old already.... nice details, patheticly outdated shape. The Ford Edge looks about 10 years newer than this.... oh wait, that's because it is. It reminds me of when I see 2 gen old Accords with nice aftermarket halogens head/taillamps and decent body kits. The escape looked old when it was new. Why bother with this? Oh, because Ford is cheap, strapped for cash and shortsighted with their investments.
