Ford is definitely one of the brightest shining stars at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) this week.
Today they unveiled a new Crossover SUV concept codenamed the Vertrek.
I was on-site at NAIAS and Ford’s press conference this morning when they introduced this piece of automotive art to the world…and it was oh-so-impressive.
The SUV looks like a compact SUV a la the Kia Sportage or Hyundai Tuscon, but it’s not. It’s actually a few inches larger than the Ford Escape in all measurements but one.
In addition to the beautifully aggressive “kinetic design”, the Vertrek sports two of Ford’s most advanced fuel-efficiency technologies:
An EcoBoost engine and their brand new Auto Shutdown feature.
