2021 Ford Equator

The 2021 Ford Equator Three-Row SUV With Bold Color And Fancy Cabin.

The Ford Motor Company has decided to add an eighth crossover in the guise of the Equator. Ford has also teamed up with local automakers in the People’s Republic of China to launch vehicles you will not find elsewhere. The Equator is a newcomer in the Ford China portfolio and it takes the shape of a three-row SUV developed by the Jiangling-Ford joint venture.

Developed and manufactured in collaboration with Jiangling Motors Corporation, the three-row utility vehicle is offered exclusively with a turbocharged 2.0-liter gasoline mill and six-speed dual clutch automatic transmission. The four-cylinder EcoBoost is good for 221 horsepower and 360 Newton-meters of torque, channeled to front wheels or optional all-wheel drive. There is a V8 or a V6 at the very least under the hood.

Painted in a flashy shade of rose paint with matching interior accents, the Equator is a smaller than the mid-size Explorer, but longer than the Ranger pickup truck based Everest. The Equator comes with secon-row captain’s chairs and 60/40 split folding rear seats. A lot of wood like panels, a massive sunroof, and small armrests for the second row seats are featured. It is split headlights and wide taillights. An imposing front grille features a mélange of glossy black and chrome accents and there are silver skid plates at the front and rear for that rugged SUV vibe.

The vast greenhouse hints at a spacious interior, which the Equator certainly has. The dual-screen arrangement and black bezels are no coincidence because Mercedes-Benz like screens measuring 12.3 inches. Wood trim can be seen throughout the cabin, along with a floating front center console, a dual pane sunroof, and individual armrests for the middle row seats.

The Jiangling Ford is interesting considering there have been namesake concepts before. Ford will have the new Equator on sale in China from March 28.
