Plans by Ford Motor Company could see its new Start model become its ‘Global Car’ as early as 2014.
Autocar.co.uk reports that Ford could be working on a production vrsion of the Start, with the vehicle being scheduled to enter the market in 2014 and come with a price of around $13,000.
The Ford Start Concept is powered by a 1.0L 3-cylinder EcoBoost engine that delivers power and torque comparable to a normally-aspirated I-4 powerplant. As of yet, Ford has not confirmed that it will do a 3-cylinder EcoBoost.
The 2014 Ford Start will be built on an aluminum and steel chassis, with a lightweight aluminum safety cell.
