2012 Ford Vertrek Concept

The 2012 Ford Vertrek Concept is going to replace the Ford Escape and Ford Kuga, offering a more compact design and sportier look that its predecessors. Ford is hoping to appeal to both American and European drivers with the Vertrek. The Vertrek was first launched in North America and has since been introduced overseas.

This concept vehicle is Ford’s answer to a more fuel efficient SUV that is also sleek and futuristic in design to please the next generation of SUV drivers.

The Vertrek’s aerodynamic design is practical, while still remaining visually appealing. The Vertrek can haul and carry large loads that SUV owners have come to expect, while simultaneously offering a sophisticated interior that gives the vehicle a high-class feel, unlike so many other SUVs.

The Vertrek is powered by a 1.6 liter EcoBoost four cylinder engine. This engine has produced 180 horsepower and 173 lb-ft of torque in other Ford vehicles, so Vertrek can be expected to perform with similar results. Ford’s EcoBoost engines combine superior performance with excellent fuel economy. By using the EcoBoost engine, vehicles can increase their fuel economy by up to 20% and simultaneously reduce their CO2 emissions by up to 15%.

EcoBoost increases overall fuel economy, but especially increases highway fuel economy. This allows Vertrek drivers to take road trips and use their SUV for large loads on a regular basis without having to put up with a gas-guzzler. With gas prices on the rise, a better fuel economy engine is a must for any SUV driver, giving the Ford Vertrek an advantage over its competitors.

The Vertrek has more trunk space than the Kuga it will be replacing, which should please drivers who complained that the Kuga’s trunk was too small. The Vertrek will offer 15% more cargo space behind the first row of seats and 20% more cargo space behind the second row of seats than the Kuga. This generous amount of cargo space is similar to the Ford Escape. The Vertrek concept also has numerous technological devices to help customers while they drive such as active park assist and BLIS (Blind Spot Information System).
