On the exterior front, the car features trapezoidal grille that gives it a sportier stance. The headlamps are smoothly crafted to flow into the sides of this car and the bigger bonnet gives it a muscular stance. At the rear, the tails lights have been tweaked to make it look bigger and bolder. Ford has not officially revealed the pricing for this car.
