The new Ford sedan is based on the thoroughly revised Mazda6 platform, and will itself become the base for 10 different models from other Ford divisions.
Cabin components for the new Futura were ordered by Collins & Aikman Corp, one of the largest manufacturers in the field.
The new model is positioned as a successor to the Taurus. The grille is made in retro style and resembles some classic Ford 60s models.
The five-seater sedan will have a 2.3-liter new I-4 aluminum engine, as well as a 3-liter V-6. It is possible that a more powerful version will appear later, and maybe even a hybrid version.
