This would be an early mule, using body parts/panels from other vehicles on underpinnings from a new model. So the body we see likely means nothing.

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

I believe this is the final body with camo.


The photos we saw last year was the mule using a modified Fiesta body.

Ford has just announced it will be exiting the MPV market.

Re: 2021 EcoSport SUV

So from what I'm understanding is they're gonna sell the Puma along side the Ecosport in Europe, wonder if they will do the same here.

I'd like that idea, if they want to keep the Kuga more of an off-road based Mini SUV.

I guess you can look at the Puma as a smaller B-segment size version of the C-segment Kuga.

The more off-road capable C-segment SUV is the baby Bronco (Maverick).

The current one is well.... actually doing quite ok in Europe (segment is led by the French).
The EcoSport actually outsells models perceived by Americans to be better like the Mazda CX-3, Honda HR-V, Hyundai Kona, Opel Mokka (Buick Encore), and Jeep Renegade.

Unfortunately the Ecosport is losing market share fast in Europe...it didn’t even make the top selling cars list, the Toyota CHR kicked it down...

All those listed, including the EcoSport, are at the bottom of the sales charts of a huge growing segment in Europe. EcoSport is an old product on it's way out. Sales will continue to slow in preparation. Hardly a big concern.
