In a recent report from Economic times, Ford has been working to add more vehicles to the Indian Market portfolio. There are 3 cars that we expect Ford to bring India next. These will be excluding the Ford Mustang which will be soon back in BS6 version. So here are the 3 International Ford Cars which are being considered for India.
Ford Ranger Raptor
Bring the Ford Ranger Raptor to India will be easy as it is a Pickup truck based on the platform of the Ford Endeavour. Although there isn’t much of a market for pickup trucks in India now Ford might position it as a lifestyle utility vehicle.
This might take a few years to happen as now Ford has entered in a tieup with Mahindra. Here they will focus on the B and C segment car which they are missing and that might push the Raptor further.
Overall the Raptor is a very butch looking pickup truck and there a lot of style quotient liked with it. One could imagine it like an expensive lifestyle vehicle like the Mahindra Thar. The Ford Raptor brings utility and Comfort very well.

Ford Bronco is second on the list of International Ford Cars for India. Internationally it has received a bit update for the year 2020. The ultra-modern styling of this SUV is sure to attract a lot of attention.
Being a high-performance vehicle it is expected to come with 2 engine option in which one is a V6 engine of 2.7-litre. The other engine is a 2.3-litre eco-boost engine which is a straight-four engine. the power figures will vary for India as these engines will have to be BS6 compliant. Also, the chance of the Bronco to miss out on the bigger engine is there with the strict BS6 emission norms.
The Ford Bronco also comes with a 2.0 litre and 1.5-litre engine so depending on which segment Ford might target it will give the Bronco that engine.

Last in this list is the Ford Focus RS. This will be the hot hatch in Ford’s new high-performance lineup. Internationally Ford Focus RS is a very acclaimed car in the Hot-hatch segment. The car makes about 300 bhp from a 2.5-litre turbocharged engine. This might be an overkill for the India market now but the price will decide what this car competes with. Just for facts, this car has a top speed of 264 km/h
Lastly, we would like to say that these cars are definitely not coming in the consumer car segment of Ford. These might sit alongside the Ford Mustang as unique offerings for India. Also, they might be overpriced as they might come as CKD Units and not be manufactured here. For more such content stay subscribed to the Motoroctane Youtube, Google NEWS, Facebook and Twitter.
