If it ends up using the same powertrains as the latest Explorer, then it should launch with single-motor configurations. Dual-motor variants, with the electric all-wheel drive, will be reserved for upper variants. Other highlights will include some modern-day safety gizmos, as well as the usual comfort gear such as the massaging seats, or at least a massaging driver’s seat, keyless entry, multi-zone climate control, large infotainment screen, and ambient lighting. Some of the latest tech features available on other Fords should also be on deck.
As we already told you, the rumored next-gen Capri will be a crossover coupe. This will allow it to sit alongside the new Explorer in the Blue Oval’s family without stepping on its toes, targeting those who favor style over substance. In all likelihood, the legroom for backseat occupants should be about the same, but due to the roofline that will be more arched behind the B pillars, the headroom will be affected, and so will the cargo area of the vehicle.
As far as the styling of the model that will supposedly build on the legacy of the two-door Capris made from 1969 to 1986, it is unknown to anyone who is not directly involved in its alleged development. Nonetheless, this hasn’t stopped certain pixel manipulators from trying to imagine what it will look like. Only time will tell if the CGIs shared in the gallery above, which came courtesy of the peeps at Kolesa, are a long stretch or not. But they are interesting, nonetheless.
Wrapped in a modern-looking package, the all-new Ford Capri was imagined with fresh lighting units with integrated DRLs that are a nod to those of its predecessors, a closed-off grille, and a large central air intake in the front bumper. Out back, it has double taillights on each side of the corporate logo, a charging port located on the right rear fender, and a sporty spoiler above the rear windscreen. The aero wheels are another thing worth mentioning.
So, if Ford indeed plans to revive the Capri as an all-quiet crossover coupe, would you be interested in it? Let us know by dropping a line below.
