Ford Ka Crossover Looks Like the Child of Parents Ford and General Motors

A new pair of renderings published on Behance by Kleber Silva envisions a new crossover model produced by Ford that would essentially be an evolution of the current 2020 Ford Ka to a larger body style.

As you can see for yourselves in the photos here, there are several parts that have made their way from the Ford Ka to this imagined crossover, including the signature Ford grille and the headlights.

But at a closer inspection, there’s a chance you may notice something unusual about this proposed Ford Ka Crossover. And it’s not the fact that it’s a crossover that could compete against other models that Ford has already launched, but the design that’s inspired from a non-Ford model.

And the most surprising thing is that these design cues come from none other than General Motors, as the renderings are based on the Baojun 510, a crossover produced by Baojun, which itself is a joint venture between SAIC, General Motors, and Wuling. As a matter of fact, the Baojun 510 debuted in 2017 after being announced at the 2016 Guangzhou Auto Show, and it is one of the most important models in the current lineup of the alliance that General Motors is part of.

While it sounds rather awkward to talk about a Ford model that would be based on a design borrowed from General Motors, the good thing is that the Baojun 510 doesn’t look that bad, especially with this red paint.

So after all, what we have here is a neat combination of several models, including Ford Ka, Ford Escape, and Baojun 510. All of these come together quite nicely to produce a more muscular Ka crossover.

Kleber Silva claims this could be the Ford Ka crossover launching in 2022, but there’s obviously a pretty good chance this isn’t going to happen, especially given the resemblance with GM’s own crossover.
