Nevertheless, if a recent report turns out to be true, then it won’t only take on the hatch and sedan offerings, but some small pickup trucks, too.
If given the green light for production, then the Ford Focus pickup would act like a replacement for the Courier. The latter was assembled in Brazil, using the smaller Fiesta’s underpinnings as a starting point, so the new model would be larger.
Details about it are scarce at the moment, but it’s believed to go into production in Mexico, at the Blue Oval’s facility in Cuautitlan, to avoid the so-called chicken tax that adds a 25 percent tariff on imported trucks..
A launch in Europe is rumored too, but it’s hard to tell whether Ford will use the shipping routes in the Atlantic Ocean, or if it will produce it somewhere else. Regardless, if everything goes as planned, then expect the Ford Focus pickup to arrive in the beginning of the next decade.
Until then, Kleber Silva took a digital shot at imagining it, in a double-cab flavor, using the same front end and taillights as the latest Ford Focus. Elsewhere, the vehicle has an increased ground clearance, plastic cladding all around, roof bars and, of course, an open bed at the rear.
The Focus pickup was given a chrome red finish, as well as chrome trim and underbody protection.
