Ford Ranger T6, EcoSport crossover spied in DenverWed, 05 Dec 2012
Apparently Ford wanted to give a few of its offerings a mile-high workout. That would explain why Autoweek reader Brendan Bartolo was able to catch a fleet of four vehicles parked, hoods open, in a Denver hotel parking lot.
Full-body camouflage can't disguise a pair of 2013 Ford Fusion sedans, but we have no way of knowing what new technologies may or may not lurk under their conventional sheet metal.
Even more intriguing is a similarly camouflaged Ford EcoSport crossover. Built on Ford's global B3 platform—which also underpins the Ford Fiesta and B-Max wagon—the EcoSport will be assembled at both Brazilian and Indian facilities.
Like the look of this small crossover? If you live in the United States, that's too bad. Ford plans to offer it in developing markets such as China and India—even Nepal gets the vehicle—but it won't make its way to America any time soon.
Also of note is an un-camouflaged Ford Ranger T6 pickup with a regular cab parked next to the other vehicles. Ford currently sells a crew cab version of this small pickup overseas, but like the EcoSport, there are no plans to put it on dealer lots here—for now, at least.
