Sure, in your post #5 above, showing the 9 vehicles, I would say the profile looks similar to the 1st or top left white vehicle. What I saw had a bit more rake in the back, less CUV-ish, which is what I disliked on the clay concept they showed. I am feeling better about it, as what we saw was probably very early. And again, I am not even certain of what I saw, and was to busy with testing our project, to ask.

Again, if that was what I saw (BEV Mach One), then I liked it and that is surprisingly close to it.

sans the early MKZ grill, of course.

And agreed, that was one of my fave concepts.

If it has the shape of the i-Pace it could be a good thing. But this long wheel base short nose is based on a full EV, without a need for ICE space up front.

Re: All About That Whitespace

I'm holding out some blind, optimistic hope that one "white space" vehicle will be a Flex successor, because they really are useful as **** and thick on the ground out here on the left coast.

Having something with space to rival my Expedition but with much better MPG has been a huge deal for me. I love my ol' truck, but I can limit its use for truck-specific things, now.

If GM can justify Buick, and if Honda can justify Acura, we can damned well have Mercury back.

I too have wondered if Flex has turned back into favor to have a next-gen model. Obviously it won't be intended to light up the sales charts, but if it can continue to pull in high $$ sales, maybe they'll see a reason to finally give it a redesign instead of canceling it.

Current Vehicles:
2009 Ford Flex Limited w/ AWD
Light Ice Blue/White Suede Roof | Med. Lt. Stone Interior | Vista Roof
2018 Ford Mustang GT Convertible
Lightning Blue | Black Top | Black Interior

Is that a new signature, Zan? can't believe I'd've missed it

&
imho/wondering/hoping whether the most innovatively-interesting vehicles will be on the secret3rd platformitecture - - Flex is a definite candidate imho
...think making a List would be a nifty idea

I've had that sig for awhile, and still believe in it. Mercury remains my first car-brand love, and that'll never change.

As far as the Flex goes...far and away, the most comfortable/usable vehicle I've ever owned. It fits my life like a glove.

Re: All About That Whitespace






This is why Citroen is my favorite brand. Not Ford. (4th Favorite after Citroen, Peugeot and Audi)

If Ford is paying attention, these are some more whitespace designs they could use.

Pass.

All those flattened greenhouses fairly scream "claustrophobic driving experience", and other than that...eh..nothing all that original. The burgundy model's profile pic looks like the upcoming Focus squashed in a carnival mirror.
