Re: Ford "Maverick" (baby Bronco) LEAKS
The Pinto - if the name does come back - would be better used as one of the upcoming EVs. I can imagine the Pinto being used for a different bodystyle versus Mach E where a two door of it can look like the old Pinto bodyshape while the 4 door would be also offered. Have it like a sporty hatchback or even wagon styling to it like the old ones but electric-powered. Have the new Pinto be served for a simple electric powered vehicle to travel with long range and quick charging while the Mach-E be more performance-oriented. That way, no more comments or jokes about the old exploding gas tank as the new Pinto be marketed as electric-powered. That would go along with the rest of the animal-named vehicles: Mustang, Bronco, Maverick, etc. I don't think Pinto name is coming back but would be better used for an electric vehicle off the new EV architecture with the old retro styling.
So fascinated with Ford's EcoBoost technology!!!
