DETROIT, Jan. 10, 2011 -- Ford Motor Company today unveiled its vision for
a sleeker, sportier and more stylish compact sport utility vehicle (SUV) at
the 2011 North American International Auto Show. The Ford Vertrek concept
previews the company's ambition for a next-generation, global compact SUV
that could lead the industry in both design and fuel efficiency.
The Ford Vertrek concept is based on Ford's global C-segment platform,
which includes the all-new Ford Focus range launching early in 2011 in
North America and Europe, plus the latest C-MAX and Grand C-MAX
multi-activity vehicles. It represents the vision of the company's top
design and engineering talent on how best to attract and satisfy future
sport utility vehicle customers around the world.
"Vertrek concept is a no-compromise solution we feel utility vehicle
customers will embrace around the world," said Derrick Kuzak, Ford group
vice president of Global Product Development. "It is a revolution compared
to what is typically seen in this segment in North America and is a stylish
evolution compared with products outside North America. This new design is
sleeker and more fuel efficient and delivers the capability, including
people and cargo volume, customers demand globally."
The Ford Vertrek concept combines the best of Ford's distinctive European
kinetic design styling and driving quality with outstanding levels of cargo
space, trailer-tow and off-road capability for North America, promising a
vehicle that meets the needs of next-generation compact utility vehicle
customers around the world.
The sleek appearance of the Ford Vertrek concept has been honed
aerodynamically to help support the program target of class-leading fuel
economy and low CO2 emissions and complement the high-tech powertrain
solutions Ford envisions.
Ford preliminary data show that a production vehicle based around the
Vertrek concept would be at least 5 percent more aerodynamically efficient
than current comparable Ford North American and European models, such as
the Escape and Kuga.

keep up with those pricey Europeans.
"Though its practicality is disappointing, the 2012 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe
delivers a combination of world-class performance, style and value that's
tough to beat."

of GM Headquarters, a few Cadillac engineers / execs [and the Pratt &

bridges the connection between racecar and road car - Technology, Process,
and Passion make the trip.
And thanks, Cadillac Racing video team, for the on-board footage.
