A Crossover-like Wagon At Ford?

Rumours are saying that Ford might be considering a crossover-like wagon inspired by the Subaru Outback.

Ford has already signaled its intention to transform its North American lineup, a decision that will eventually eliminate all “cars” in the Dearborn lineup… except the Mustang of course! On the European side, traditional models are still on the agenda, but according to an article on Autocar’s website, a reshuffle is currently being considered.

Indeed, the British media reports that the Mondeo sedan and the Galaxy and S-Max crossovers could disappear in favor of a single crossover inspired by a certain Subaru Outback. The publication speculates even on the arrival of this future wagon model that would be planned for 2021. And although this lifted wagon is called to transform the European lineup of the brand, the model could also cross the Atlantic Ocean for North American commercialization.

At this level, the addition of such a variant would be quite logical, given the success of the Subaru wagon in the United States and Canada. As the Autocar article mentions, the Subaru Outback is not as popular in Europe, but with the growing popularity of anything called “utility” on the European side, the commercial potential of such a vehicle is undeniable.

The new model would be based on the platform of the most recent Ford Focus, an architecture that is likely to be used in many ways in the future, at least for aging models of the brand. It is too early to talk about the powertrains envisioned for this utility wagon, but one can already expect a turbodiesel engine (for Europe) and a 4-cylinder gasoline engine as another option. It would not be inappropriate to think that an electrified variant is also in the plans.

This is not the first time that a rumor emanates from the American automaker on the arrival of a Ford Fusion (or Mondeo) utility wagon. Finally, perhaps the Ford lineup will eventually find a semblance of a car with this potential wagon in a few years.
