Ford has announced plans to launch five all-new or redesigned crossovers and SUVs in Europe in the next three years.

The company declined to go into specifics but said things will kick off at the Frankfurt Motor Show when they stage the debut of the Euro-spec Edge.  This raises a few eyebrows as the model was shown at the 2014 Paris Motor Show with a 2.0-liter Duratorq TDCi diesel engine that has outputs of 180 PS (132 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque as well as 210 PS (154 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque.

Ford also announced plans to launch updated versions of the Kuga and EcoSport.  While the latter model has already been introduced, Ford says the Kuga will feature a revised color palette, a SYNC 2 connectivity system and an infotainment system with an 8-inch display.

 

In a statement, Ford of Europe CEO Jim Farley said "As demand for SUVs continues to grow, so will the range that Ford offers – from rugged models with true go-anywhere ability to sporty models designed to suit urban lifestyles.”
