Time to get excited people

SUVs seem to be taking India by storm right now. The likes of Kia, MG, Hyundai and now Toyota and Maruti are stepping up their game and delivering some very nice SUVs. In the midst of all this though, Ford seems a bit lost.

A few years ago, Ford gave birth to the sub-4m SUV segment with the EcoSport. Ford is going to challenge the Kia, MG and the other SUV makers right now and dethrone them with the help of Italian designer Pininfarina.

Yup, you read that right. Italian designer Pininfarina will design upcoming Ford SUVs destined for India. What's more, in a report by Autocar India, it was revealed that the first Ford SUV to be designed by Pininfarina will rival the next-gen XUV500.

It is reported that the new EcoSport is in its initial development stages right now. The Blue Oval also said that this decision has nothing to do with Mahindra owning the Italian design house.

While Mahindra's and Ford's SUVs will be different to feel and drive, the next-gen EcoSport expected to be launched next year might get the 1.2-litre T-GDI engine from Mahindra. This means that the next-gen EcoSport will have 130hp and 230Nm of torque on offer.

We can't wait to see new Ford's and Pininfarina's new creation and with the American brand's current range of SUVs on their last legs, this news couldn't have come any sooner.
