Looks like a big escape to me. Not sure if autoblog got this one right.
It certainly could be it, it's called project Menlo for the Mach1 and I'm going to guess this is just a test bed. Explorer (and other Fords) are also getting a version with Sync 4. There are allot of hands on project Menlo right now, I've seen photos of it everywhere. I even saw it photographed at a Ford EV press event, granted it was a table-top display tester but it revealed the UI and size.
And indeed, Ford is exiting the "MAV" market which has converted to Crossovers so I don't expect a sequel to S-Max.
