Ford is relaunching one of their formerly popular brands through the 2018 Ford Torino car. A long time ago, the Torino has been considered to be one of the more fashionable Ford iterations and brands. It had all the glamour surrounding it and brought in big money for the company. But after a while it all wore off so the plug was pulled on this car, leaving it as a very nice memory for car enthusiasts but also leaving us with the possibility of this brand making a comeback one day. It appears that we are going to experience just that.
The story about this model reentering the market swept everyone. Nobody thought that it was possible and even with the released photos people were skeptical about it. First of all, the released pictures show a car which does not look at all like anything as the last Torino did, so a lot of people really did not believe that this is supposed to be the same car. When looking at it, it does not really look as something you would expect from the Torino brand, but it is something that we can expect to get from Ford.
Re-releasing the Ford Torino in such a state is something that we were all waiting to see and tie level of production and design that they have brought here really looks amazing. The model introduces some pieces of equipment which are familiar for some modern Ford cars, which has never been used on a Torino before.
The original Torino was first introduced in 1968 and was produced till 1976. The model actually started as a subsidiary brand of the Fairlane model, which was made between the period of 1962 and 1970. But they decided on instead of having the Fairlane Torino model that they should make a standalone Torino car, which in the end managed to outlive its original concept. Now with the comeback, we are ever so excited to see what they are preparing for this new model.
First of all, the 2018 Ford Torino does not look anything like the last Torino model. Well it has been almost forty something years when this car was last made, so it makes sense that a lot of the parts about it are going to change. The model does add some great components to the design and actually makes a very surprising new look for the vehicle. The design is very elegant and also contemporary and actually has very little to do with the newest Ford products that have been made.
The front end of the car has a curved design, much different from the original. The strong lines only add to the luxury of the car and make it even more glamorous looking. The model will also be five inches longer than its last model and they have expanded it in order to allow it to accommodate the passengers on the inside and also include some new features which the model is going to add. Also, the use of the 20-inch wheels is very helpful to balance the entire design out.
The front end is positioned lower compared to the back end of the body of the car. The car is mostly made of aluminum and means that it is a lightweight model. These features are supposed to help and improve the performance of the car and also address its fuel economy a little bit. The headlights and the LED lights are separated and it actually gives the driver better visibility in its use.
The inside of the 2018 Ford Torino will change both in size and design. The inside of the cabin will features some new and expensive looking materials, but they are not going too far in order not to make the price so high. The model will incorporate some soft and comfortable materials which are going to make the comfort rates even higher and when you add to that the added spacing you get a brilliant car which will make the entire setup much more appropriate for the people inside.
For now not all of the equipment was confirmed, but we are certain that the car will add a great display of technological additions. What we know is that the dash is going to feature a larger touchscreen and that there is also going to be more connectivity available. Expect to get all of the latest Ford amenities inside which will probably be updated in order to accommodate it to the latest standards.
As far as the engine choice for the 2018 Ford Torino goes, it is expected to be a very interesting one. This is not yet confirmed but it just so appears that the model will be using a similar one as the Ford Mustang car is using. The engine that we are talking about is of course the Ti-VCT V85.0-liter engine which is reportedly going to be able to make 435 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. The proposed acceleration ability for the car would perhaps be 4 seconds needed to reach 0-60 mph. The fuel economy will also be estimated at around 15 mpg city and 25 mpg highway.
Release Date and Price
After the initial pictures of the 2018 Ford Torino were released, nobody really knew when this would happen and when would we be able to really see the model come out. But fortunately, it did not take them too long to confirm that the model was in fact a 2018 release. This further gets our hopes up for an earlier release but it just so appears that we can only hope to see this car come out by the end of the year. Expect to see the car in the later part of 2018.
The price is still speculated and although it rather seems very expensive to get this model, it will have a rather standard price rate. Early estimations say that the Ford Torino will probably cost somewhere around 40,000 USD for starts, but it all depends on how much equipment they decide to place in the car. For now the base MSRP is not confirmed.
