car and driver guesses it will cost around $40k.

why even bother calling it an suv? It looks pretty much like a car to me. I think my fusion has about the same ground clearance.

If you take this drawing from Ford:

and combine it with that side photo, it appears that the camo is doing a poor job of hiding the real roofline, which can be seen readily once you use the above drawing to confirm the body lines. Interesting in a good way.

Yeah I think calling it an SUV is a bit of a stretch IMO

SUV is an international generic term for a utility 

and includes crossovers...

Is it me, or does it seem to have a really long wheelbase?

 

I'm starting to get a high belt line mustang vibe from it.

Yeah but it doesn’t look like a crossover either. The whole back is fake camo. Like someone else mentioned, you can see the roofline sloping downward. If anything, it has a 4 door fastback design which I’m guessing they will turn into a hatch so they can call it a utility. 

 

I like what I see though. If the $40k price is close, this should sell pretty well.

A base Mustang GT is around $40k.  I bet this starts around $50k and goes up from there.

Yeh. I didn’t check that. Most GT’s I see in lots are over 40k. I still bet this is nowhere close to 40k and a loaded model will probably be close to 60k.

Is this closer in size to the Tesla model 3? It’s hard to get a feel for the size in these pics.

Am I the only one weirded out about the hood length proportion compared to the rest of the car? Mustangs are known to have long hood/short deck. If they want to have this to be "Mustang-inspired", then long hood/short hatch would be the proper design. Even if it's a purely-electric driven car on a BEV platform/architecture with motors possibly mounted at the wheels, then they still could have stretched the hood distance a bit to give it that 'Mustang' proportion. This actually looks like it has a transverse-mounted front drive engine layout just from how short the hood length is as well as how long the front overhang it has. Are we sure this is the Mach-E 'Mustang-inspired' crossover or something else entirely? I'm wondering if this is actually the next generation Fusion 'whitespace vehicle' we been hearing about in mule setup. It wouldn't be the first time auto journalists gotten the spy test photos wrong.

So it’s basically a 4 door electric Mustang?

Maybe slightly bigger?
