not for styling which I airbrushed out mostly, but for form-factor/shape/size
- EverestEndeavour wheelbase
- minimal overhangs
- WildTrak cabin
- Veloster doorplan

Never been a fan of the Veloster's door arrangement. Just make it a 5-door. Lol
Even Jeep is selling fewer and fewer 2-door Wranglers.
Minimal front overhang by chopping it might not work, move the front wheels forward instead (but I doubt Ford would do that).


@2b2, Where's the spare tire?

Tweak >> SEMA Fantasy

^ the part I didn't change +


ahem,
from a youtube "v=Xl--9ekmlaE" thanks to @MKII ,
the Z without it's old-original trunklid spoiler
( that I reallyREALLY want reduced to go with the NewFace )

which
leads me to a SEMA Fantasy of
going for a classic-heritage feeling by finishing it in a
2-tone of [BL]Chroma Elite Light Brown Premium Metallic Paint (Copper)

+ Palladium White Gold Metallic
then ... in the MKZ video you can see the WHOLE pano-roof being installed One-Piece
so
replacing that with a retro canvas slide-back top, including the back-glass

with
a custom interior composed of Thoroughbred+Terracotta+Cappaccino (& maybe hints of Hazelnut+'Cashmere/Destination/Chalet'?)
&
naturally going MKZENergi with a 3cyl 1.5T and batteries from the upgraded Focus-BEV...

...one of several inspirations:

Re: Tweak!

haha sorry @2b2 I thought maybe you snagged them off another vehicle but glad to see they will be available on the Focus in some way.

Re: Tweak!

Ford seems poised to replace the Fiesta in the US with a Crossover, but a Crossover themed Fiesta seems more like a trim level than a true crossover at which point you might as well continue selling the full Fiesta line. Besides, any crossover named "Fiesta" would be a hard sell here. But I don't think it's any accident that Ford has made no co-current announcement for the US Fiesta alongside the global debut. I'm concerned EcoSport is simply under-baked for the market and I'm surprised that is the direction they are taking right now. It might have something to do with the next iteration of Escape and Focus, perhaps they are restructuring their range and things will come into focus once those products are out.
