Ford may bring one of its most famous nameplates. The 2022 Ford Capri will make a big return at some point next year. This model was used for five generations before being phased out. Ford has previously brought back the Bronco and Puma models, and the Capri might be next. Don’t get too pumped up just yet. Ford stated that there is still a lot to be done, before Capri’s comeback. However, it seems like the Capri model is about to happen.
Blue Oval built the Capri for three generations in Europe, and Australians have the Mk1 model. Furthermore, Capri was manufactured in South Africa. Over the course of Capri’s life, Blue Oval sold about two million copies, and the automobile was sold all over the world. Without further ado, here’s everything you need to know about Capri and its possible return.
What’s Under the Hood
As we said, nothing is official yet, so predicting the engine lineup is almost impossible. On the other hand, many reports are suggesting only one engine for the new 2022 Ford Capri. We are talking about a 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine. This engine develops 350 horsepower and over 350 lb-ft of torque. Furthermore, with this four-cylinder engine, Capri could reach a max speed of 162 mph. With these stats, the two-door coupe will go from 0 to 60 mph in about 4.7 seconds.
Another, less likely, conclusion is a front-mounted engine, which would allow smaller rear seats. If you remember, Ford previously offered a Capri RS model. The sportier version of the already sporty-looking car sounds exciting. As this engine delivers so much power, mentioned four-cylinder could be available in the RS version. This means the regular Capri will get a less potent unit.
2022 Capri Renderings Are Looking Promising
We have some fresh drawings and renderings of the 2022 Ford Capri. If it is released, this sporty car will undoubtedly appear athletic and aggressive. Ford Europe representatives stated that the firm would love to see this comeback. Bringing the previous nameplate, on the other hand, is a difficult task. Ford will have to make an incredible job with styling and exterior design. Capri will undoubtedly retain its two-door form, but it will need to seem significantly modernized.
Blue Oval might take a few aesthetic elements from its GT model and perhaps the Mustang. Interestingly, both the Capri and Mustang were designed by the same person. The renderings reveal a lot of similarities between the Capri, Mustang, and Ford GT models. See it for yourself and let us know what you think about the new Capri and its design.
2022 Ford Capri Launch Date
For the time being, the upcoming 2022 Ford Capri is still just a possibility. On the other hand, we must agree that Capri is, in our honest judgment, a long shot. Furthermore, cars are performing poorly in the United States market. Americans, on the other hand, are crazy for old-school and fast vehicles, and the Capri is one of the most famous nameplates.
Capri is unlikely to be a production model. The best-case scenario is a limited-edition special edition that will be offered in restricted numbers. Reportedly, the sales will begin at some point during the 2022. Still, we are waiting for Blue Oval to reveal more details.
