The all-new 2022 Ford Evos is happening after all. The original concept has been shown in Shanghai, a few days ago. New Evos looks closer to the Mustang Mach-E crossover, but Evos will be sold in China, for now. It is a mid-size car that combines the elements of sedan, wagon, and crossover. In China, Evos will rival Subaru Outback.
The Evos is not a new name, as Ford used it a decade ago on a concept car. The latest reports are saying the Evos will replace the Fusion sedan, but some other rumors are saying that this won’t happen in the near future. The sales will begin at some point next year, and Evos won’t feature an all-electric powertrain option, as some speculation suggested.
2022 Evos Comes With the Wagon-Like Design
The Blue Oval manufacturer didn’t reveal so many details about the new 2022 Ford Evos. The concept has been shown a few days ago and Ford said it is a model for markets in China. Thanks to that, Evos was developed specifically for China and the styling is saying exactly that. The front fascia comes with an open-mesh grille and thinner LED headlights.
The Evos model takes an athletic stance with sporty styling cues and a recognizable fastback profile. You can call it a sedan or a crossover for now, as we don’t know how Evos will categorize. Anyway, Evos looks attractive and modern, which is the most important thing. The styling reminds us of Acura ZDX and Subaru Outback models, which means Ford did a great job in terms of design.
The forthcoming 2022 Ford Evos will look modern on the inside as well. Ford will offer its new “Blue Cruise” level 2 self-driving system. According to Blue Oval, this feature will work on the same principle as GM’s Super Cruise hands-free system. The same feature will be available in the United States on the models such as the F-150 pickup and Mach-E crossover. Moreover, Evos comes with the Virtual Personal Assistant. This system uses an interface to customize cabin conditions.
The concept shows very larger displays, like the Mustang Mach-E crossover that comes with the 15.5-inch vertical touchscreen. Ford offers a lot of safety aids, navigation, ambient lighting, and much more. The dashboard looks very modern and it hosts two displays, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, and the 27.0-inch 4K infotainment display. We’ll see if these screens will be available in the production model. Lastly, Evos will use a Ford Sync+ 2.0 system with Baidu integration, specifically modified for China.
Under the Hood
Another mystery about the 2022 Ford Evos is its powertrain options. However, the most reliable reports are predicting a 2.0-liter inline-four turbocharged engine, which is a good thing if it happens. This engine will produce around 245 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. The same engine powers the brand-new Bronco Sport SUV.
On the other hand, there are no details on optional engines. The rear exhaust clearly suggests that the all-electric variant won’t arrive in the near future. On top of that, we are not sure if the Evos model will feature any sort of electrification, including the plug-in hybrid system.
2022 Ford Evos Price, Release Date
The price of the 2022 Ford Evos is not available yet. Moreover, it is impossible to predict the price, but some experts are saying the Evos will cost between $25,000 and $30,000. Unfortunately, this model is not coming to Europe and United States, for now. The sales will begin in China in the first quarter of 2022.
