If the rumors are correct, Torino will return at some point in 2020. The 2021 Ford Torino will get further upgrades and will be built on the previous model. The legendary car will arrive with sportiness and certain level of aggressiveness. On top of that, Torino GT will be in the offer as well. However, Gran Torino is still uncertain.
From Clint Eastwood to the Starsky and Hutch TV show, Torino became an iconic model. Leave the past behind and focus on the future. The 2021 Torino will surely borrow a lot of cues from the previous-generation model. However, Blue Oval plans to deliver a modern and unique design. The same goes for the interior. Under the hood, we will probably see two engine options.
2021 Torino Exterior Design
The approaching 2021 Ford Torino will hit the roads with a lower ride and very sporty appearance. Styling is aggressive, and it looks incredibly modern. This car will also introduce large bumpers and very sharp front fascia. LED headlights will be offered as standard, along with the alloy wheels. We are not sure how many trim levels will be in the offer. However, Blue Oval will most likely offer Torino GT, while the Gran Torino variant is still a mystery.
Speaking of mystery, the exact car’s design is still a secret. No doubt, new model will look imposing, and it will grab the attention everywhere it goes. Furthermore, we are yet to find out Torino’s platform and other mechanics. No doubt, some cues will be borrowed from the previous generation.
Interior is Both Retro and Modern
The interior of the 2021 Ford Torino will look modern and straightforward. Blue Oval plans to borrow some stuff from its current crossovers and SUVs. That includes displays with simple interface, upholstery and advanced safety systems. On the other hand, air vents, steering wheel, and gear shifter will be unique and new. No doubt, Ford will introduce at least one special version or the range-topping trim level. That will provide instant luxury inside the cabin.
The base model will use some retro cues from the 70s. Thanks to that, 2021 Torino is a mix of retro and modern. Bucket seats are a must, and we surely expect a lot of wood accents. On the other hand, don’t expect so many digital technologies, that would ruin everything. The platform will largely determine the space from the inside and Torino’s legroom. There will be room for five passengers.
Two Possible Engine Options
This is the most interesting topic, no doubt about it. However, no one can actually tell which engine will power the all-new 2021 Ford Torino. The latest speculations are predicting a 2.7-liter V6. This engine can generate 320 horsepower and 340 lb-ft of torque, thanks to a supercharger. On the other hand, don’t expect high fuel efficiency.
Logically, Ford won’t develop a new engine for its Torino model. Instead, opting for an existing powertrain is the only reasonable outcome for Blue Oval and Torino. The second engine will be a 3.5-liter V6. This potent variant will deliver over 400 horses, and it is available on the Torino GT models.
2021 Ford Torino Price and Release Date
The comeback of this iconic car will happen at some point in 2020. That means the upcoming 2021 Ford Torino will hit the dealerships in the first half of 2021. New Torino and Torino GT are ready to conquer the car segment that is slowly dying.
It is a risky move from Blue Oval, but it could worth it. The price is another mystery, but many experts are predicting the price of around $35,000.
