This year we will see a range of new Ford cars in India. So, 2021 is going to be an exciting year for ford car lovers. Here are Upcoming Cars in India 2021.
Ford decided to release the new Focus hatchback as a CBU or a fully built unit. This means Ford can bring 2,500 units to India. The Ford Focus is larger than the typical hatchback. The upcoming car in India is bigger than a compact SUV, so it’ll save more space and it’s better built as a CBU too. The Ford Focus is powered by a 1.0-liter three-cylinder EcoBoost petrol engine that produces 125 hp of peak power. There will also be a 2.0-liter direct-injection turbocharged petrol engine with more power that produces 160hp of peak power. We expect the upcoming car to be available in India in the first half of 2021 as the CBU. We expect the focus price to be around Rs. 30 lakhs to Rs. 35 lakhs. It will rival the Mini Cooper S.
Ford Focus ST
Focus ST is the hot hatch for the Focus. You get a host of performance-oriented improvements in the upcoming car in india such as automatic adjusting of the spin speed, electronically limited-slip differential, adaptive suspension with continuously controlled damping technology, dual exhaust tips, and Recaro sport seats are expected to be around Rs. 45 lakhs and should be launched in India in the first half of 2021. It is very expensive because it will also be an import of CBU. The engine for this hot hatch will be a 2.3-liter EcoBoost petrol engine that produces 280PS of maximum power and a maximum torque of 420 Nm. The engine will be connected to a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 7-speed automatic gearbox.
Ford has confirmed that it will launch the Ranger Raptor as a CBU. It will be limited to 2,500 units and cost a whopping Rs. 75 lakhs. But it is unique in that there are no high-performance pickup trucks in the Indian auto market. The Guardian is Endeavor (or Everest in the international market) below it. The upcoming car in india will be powered by a 2.0-liter twin-turbo diesel engine. It delivers a maximum power of 213 hp and a maximum torque of 500 Nm. It will be mated to a 10-speed automatic gearbox that comes with Ford’s SelectShift technology. This is the same transmission we saw in the last endeavor. The Ranger Raptor is basically a factory off-road racing truck. You get a reinforced chassis, a 2.5-inch Fox suspension with the off-road specification, LOW mode, 30 percent additional wheel travel, 283 mm ground clearance, and more. The only competition for the Ranger Raptor is the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, which is also a true off-road vehicle that costs Rs. 68.94 Lakhs ex-showroom.
It’s been a long time since Figo has received an update so it has fallen behind the competition. However, Ford has confirmed that it will launch an all-new Figo for the Indian market. The new hatchback is expected to reach the Indian market by the end of 2021. The mStallion Mahindra petrol engine, unveiled at Auto Expo 2020, will power the 2021 Vigo. The 1.2-liter turbo direct injection petrol engine will be launched. For the first time with the XUV300 Sportz. It produces 130 hp of maximum power and a maximum torque of 230 Nm. With that being said, we would expect Ford to set the engine to around 110 hp, with competitors also producing around 110 or 120 hp. The upcoming cars in india, Hyundai i20, Volkswagen Polo, Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Toyota Glanza, and Tata Altroz will compete with the Ford Figo.
Ford Ecosport Turbo
The Ford Ecosport was once a best-selling compact SUV. However, it has absorbed the competition and is now a lot better than the old Ecosport. As a midlife upgrade, Ford will introduce a turbocharged petrol engine next year. It will be the same engine as the XUV300 Sportz. So it will produce 130 hp of maximum power and a maximum torque of 230 Nm. Currently, Ecosport is offered with a 1.5-liter petrol engine and a 1.5-liter diesel engine. The petrol engine produces 122 hp of maximum power and 149 Nm of maximum torque, while the diesel engine produces 100 hp of maximum power and 215 Nm of maximum torque. Both engines have a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard. The petrol engine is offered only with an automatic gearbox with a 6-speed torque converter. The upcoming car in india will compete against the upcoming Kia Sonet, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Nissan Magnet, Tata Nexon, Hyundai Venue, and Renault Kiger.
