Finally. Its a car that is already 5 years old in its same generation.

2019/2020 is a great time  for this

I assume this will not look a lot like this stylewise because its a test mule right? If not, this will not draw a lot of attention.

Fiesta....mule....but makes sense as that's the chassis the Eco Sport is based on....Fords doing a great job with disguises as of late...


" Sizzler "...and 412hp is all you'll ever see from this engine.I'd rather have potential. The 5.0 is the very definition of being at death's door with no place to go. "Mettech"....Privately owned dealerships is so 19th Century.....Richard So, Dean, you gonna pull my words from your sig?. Sully (reg new Escape) Clearly, the Escape/Kuga/Vertrek/Fail will not sell in the same volume as the Escape does currently

Yeah, not at all - it's just testing the "innards" - all the non-body stuff.

There are several small utilities in development, hard to say which one.

Given the lack of physical changes (i.e. weird gaps in sheet metal etc)-couldn't this just be a Fiesta Active variant?

That's was my first thought... some sort of Fiesta Active update rather than EcoSport (maybe an actual AWD Fiesta Active).

 

The EcoSport mule was spotted before with sheet metal extension and hacked up rear end (see below). This latest vehicle has no sheet metal changes so hard to say what it is testing. Also noticed the previous one had 5 lug wheels while the new photo has 4 lug wheels from Fiesta (Active).

 

 

These two are EcoSport mule:

It's either Fiesta Active prototype or EcoSport mule. Depends on if your glass is half full or half empty.

That's what I think. I saw on Indian sites that the next generation of the Ecosport would have Mahindra platform to lower costs. Or maybe this could be the Maverick.

Maybe the Mahindra platform is for the next Freestyle (some sort of Ka Active). The Ecosport should remain a global product, no?

I doubt that the next EcoSport would have a Mahindra platform; by all accounts, the Mahindra partnership is only to develop cars in a class unique to India (sub-4m, IIRC). It seems highly unlikely that you'll see a product of that cooperation outside of South Asia.

Possibly the next Figo, that vehicle is becoming more popular in Asia.

I wonder if there's a new EcoSport (the new pictures without chopped up Fiesta) for ROW, and the US/Europe EcoSport replacement that's a little bigger (the chopped up one in bzcat's photos)?

More likely one is EcoSport and one is Baby Bronco.

Like Borg said, Ford has so many small crossovers its impossible to tell whats what when were dealing with these very early mules.

We have a new EcoSport, Maverick, and Courier SUV in development and I know at least two of them are using Fiesta mules, it's hard to tell which one this is.

I still think the Maverick is still going to be C based and not B based-esp if the Ecosport and Courier are going to be same size (The Ecosport) and Courier will be slightly smaller then the Ecosport. 

 

The interesting thing is that you would think that we would be seeing Maverick mules by now-it's supposed to hit the market in less than 24 months or so.

You would think we would have seen Bronco mules by now when its about a year out from production but the pilot plant hasnt built any yet.

I thought we saw some already?

They were never publicly seen because they only ran at night. That was like 2 years ago now.
