Ford is working on an all-new made in India SUV that is expected to come by 2020. This new vehicle will be the one of the fruits of Ford’s new partnership with the Indian auto major Mahindra & Mahindra. The Indo-American joint venture is looking at broad-spectrum automotive possibilities that will benefit both the American and the Indian partnering car companies. Ford and Mahindra are considering collaborating about all the important aspects of car development – from engine to platforms to sharing the same vehicles ranging from SUVs, sedans and EVs. This means, we will get to see many new models that will be rebadged as Mahindra or Ford, but under the skin will be essentially the same vehicle.
The first model that will come as the result of the two companies’ tie-up is an all-new C-segment SUV from Ford, which is likely to launch by the end of 2020. This new Ford badged SUV will be developed specifically for the car market of India. As per Ford, this new SUV will deliver the patent Ford SUV experience and come with a highly aggressive price tag.
