Let’s not get our hopes up too excessive over a rumor. Nonetheless, it’s arduous to not sit up and take discover of a report claiming Ford may construct a small, unibody pickup that would make its approach to the North American market.

In accordance with Vehicle, sources with information of Ford’s manufacturing plans say the automaker needs a brand new, Focus-based mostly pickup to exchange its historic Fiesta-based mostly Courier in overseas markets. The mannequin may discover a house on home soil, too.

The Courier, inbuilt Brazil utilizing the platform of the subcompact Fiesta of 1998, is a lifeless pickup… er, strolling. A alternative can be bigger and extra helpful. And positively extra trendy — the mannequin would supply its underpinnings from the subsequent-era 2019 Focus, of which the U.S. solely sees the crossoverized Lively variant.

So say the sources, anyway. Ought to the challenge get the go-forward, the unnamed mannequin would arrive stateside in 2022, slotting under the midsize, physique-on-body Ranger.

With the deliberate elimination of the Fiesta, Focus sedan and hatch, Fusion, and Taurus, Ford’s future home lineup doesn’t precisely look nicely-stocked with small, reasonably priced choices. Even the EcoBoost subcompact crossover appears expensive as an entry level.

Whereas particulars are scarce, it’s exhausting to think about the longer term small Ford pickup having something aside from 4 doorways — no less than in america, the place utility automobiles are household automobiles first, utility and business merchandise second. One wonders how lengthy of a mattress such a vehicle might accommodate. Definitely, nobody in Dearborn ought to use the Subaru Baja as a muse.

As for the mannequin’s supply, any mild truck arriving from past North America’s borders would face the dreaded Hen Tax, which has squashed the hopes of many a wee truck lover for many years. Mexico looks like the one place such a U.S.-sure vehicle might be constructed. Because it occurs, the elimination of the North American Fiesta means there’ll quickly be unused capability at Ford’s Cuautitlan meeting plant.

If Ford wants naming recommendations, there’s an apparent one simply begging for use.
