Report: Ford Mach 1 Crossover to Sit on Focus Platform

  Report: Ford Mach 1 Crossover to Sit on Focus Platform Mustang-styled crossover will debut relatively soonBy now, you've probably heard Ford is axing most of its cars here in the U.S. in favor of SUVs and trucks. Ford will offer a Focus Activ crossover hatchback, but the Mustang is the only true traditional car that will survive. Now the automaker is focused on capitalizing on the Mustang's brand value by introducing an electric SUV that will borrow styling cues from the pony car. And while Ford hasn't released many details on this vehicle, Autocar may have unearthed a few nuggets of information about the model's underpinnings.

Ford's Mustang has been racking up the sales for over 50 years. While we're sure Ford would love to sell over a million Mustang in less than two years, just like it did back in 1965-1966, there's no denying that the Mustang has had respectable numbers throughout each of the six major redesigns/generations. Respectable enough for Ford to call it the best-selling sports car of the last 50 years anyway. Sports car to some, daily transportation to school or work for others—that's the way the Mustang has been marketed for five decades now and there's no doubt that marketing has worked. There's no other nameplate on the road today that has quite the universal appeal as the Mustang. The Mustang has been featured in more movies and has more Facebook followers than any other vehicle in the world!
