Ford has partnered with JAC to create a completely new minivan. The car will likely target the Chinese market. Little is known about this model yet. In particular, the name of the minivan has not yet been declassified. However, the published photos reveal several interesting features about the American novelty.
Apparently, the car is some variation of the Transit van. At the same time, some details of appearance make it similar to other representatives of the MPV class. In particular, the head optics for the American novelty seemed to have been borrowed from the Mercedes-Benz V-Class. And the huge grille with metal inserts makes the Ford minivan look like a Toyota Alphard.
But in spite of the above, the presented novelty has a unique appearance design. Judging by the published photographs, the car is designed for primary operation within the city, since it has a very small ground clearance. In profile and at the back, the presented novelty is very similar to the Transit. But her stern bumper is complemented by original metal inserts protruding against the background of the body.
Official documents report that the length of the American model is 5450 mm with a wheelbase of 3300 mm. The width of the car is 2095 mm, the height is 2080 mm. The American minivan is equipped with a proprietary 2-liter Ecoboost engine. The declared power of this engine reaches 202 hp. Complete with it will offer a 5-speed "mechanics" or 6-band "automatic". The timing of the model's release to the market, as well as the approximate prices, have not yet been published.
