Ford Evos Crossover

Ford evos crossover 2020

2 days ago  The Ford Evos, a wagon-like crossover developed entirely in China, debuted at Auto Shanghai this week with an extremely cool widescreen display measuring 3.6. 2 days ago  Is the Ford Evos a station wagon or a crossover? It isn’t easy to pin the Ford Evos to one body style. That’s because this model combines many popular elements into one design that sits on the fence of multiple segments. For starters, its doors are quite tall like you’d expect in a crossover.

The Ford Evos debuted Monday at Auto Shanghai 2021 as the automaker's latest crossover for the Chinese market. However, the Evos could also come to the U.S. as a de facto replacement for the Ford Fusion sedan. The Fusion bowed out in 2020, leaving the Mustang as the only car in Ford's U.S. lineup.

Borrowing the name of a 2011 concept car that provided a styling preview of the second-generation Fusion, the Evos has a tall ride height, but a low, sleek roofline. It's a similar formula to the 'crossover coupes' pioneered by luxury automakers.

On the inside, the Evos gets an infotainment display that nearly spans the width of the dashboard. It includes a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a 27.0-inch 4K touchscreen mounted side by side, and running Ford's Sync+ 2.0 operating system.

The driver and front passenger can use that vast expanse of screen space to view different things, according to Ford. For example, the front passenger can view 'entertainment content' on their side of the screen while the driver uses the navigation system. The system is also capable of over-the-air (OTA) software updates.

The Evos will also be available with BlueCruise, Ford's recently-branded driver-assist tech. Set to debut in the U.S. later this year on the 2021 Ford F-150 and 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E, BlueCruise can operate the steering, braking, and throttle on designated stretches of highway, provided the driver is paying attention (an onboard camera monitors the driver). Because the driver must remain engaged, this system corresponds to Level 2 on the SAE vehicle-automation scale.

Ford did not discuss powertrains, or U.S. availability, but camouflaged test vehicles spotted earlier this year indicate the Evos might be coming here. Given its overall shape, the Evos could be positioned as a high-riding wagon, similar to the Subaru Outback or the discontinued Buick Regal TourX.

There are also rumors that Ford plans to attach the Fusion name to the U.S.-market Evos, meaning it could end up badged as the Fusion Active. Ford uses the Active designation for soft-roaders sold overseas, including the Fiesta Active and Focus Active. Ford planned to import the Focus Active from China, but the recent U.S.-China trade dispute put an end to that.

The all-new 2022 Ford Evos is happening after all. The original concept has been shown in Shanghai, a few days ago. New Evos looks closer to the Mustang Mach-E crossover, but Evos will be sold in China, for now. It is a mid-size car that combines the elements of sedan, wagon, and crossover. In China, Evos will rival Subaru Outback.

The Evos is not a new name, as Ford used it a decade ago on a concept car. The latest reports are saying the Evos will replace the Fusion sedan, but some other rumors are saying that this won’t happen in the near future. The sales will begin at some point next year, and Evos won’t feature an all-electric powertrain option, as some speculation suggested.

2022 Evos Comes With the Wagon-Like Design

The Blue Oval manufacturer didn’t reveal so many details about the new 2022 Ford Evos. The concept has been shown a few days ago and Ford said it is a model for markets in China. Thanks to that, Evos was developed specifically for China and the styling is saying exactly that. The front fascia comes with an open-mesh grille and thinner LED headlights.

The Evos model takes an athletic stance with sporty styling cues and a recognizable fastback profile. You can call it a sedan or a crossover for now, as we don’t know how Evos will categorize. Anyway, Evos looks attractive and modern, which is the most important thing. The styling reminds us of Acura ZDX and Subaru Outback models, which means Ford did a great job in terms of design.

Interior Features

The forthcoming 2022 Ford Evos will look modern on the inside as well. Ford will offer its new “Blue Cruise” level 2 self-driving system. According to Blue Oval, this feature will work on the same principle as GM’s Super Cruise hands-free system. The same feature will be available in the United States on the models such as the F-150 pickup and Mach-E crossover. Moreover, Evos comes with the Virtual Personal Assistant. This system uses an interface to customize cabin conditions.

The concept shows very larger displays, like the Mustang Mach-E crossover that comes with the 15.5-inch vertical touchscreen. Ford offers a lot of safety aids, navigation, ambient lighting, and much more. The dashboard looks very modern and it hosts two displays, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, and the 27.0-inch 4K infotainment display. We’ll see if these screens will be available in the production model. Lastly, Evos will use a Ford Sync+ 2.0 system with Baidu integration, specifically modified for China.

Under the Hood

Another mystery about the 2022 Ford Evos is its powertrain options. However, the most reliable reports are predicting a 2.0-liter inline-four turbocharged engine, which is a good thing if it happens. This engine will produce around 245 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. The same engine powers the brand-new Bronco Sport SUV.

On the other hand, there are no details on optional engines. The rear exhaust clearly suggests that the all-electric variant won’t arrive in the near future. On top of that, we are not sure if the Evos model will feature any sort of electrification, including the plug-in hybrid system.

2022 Ford Evos Price, Release Date

The price of the 2022 Ford Evos is not available yet. Moreover, it is impossible to predict the price, but some experts are saying the Evos will cost between $25,000 and $30,000. Unfortunately, this model is not coming to Europe and United States, for now. The sales will begin in China in the first quarter of 2022.
