Ford has been successfully been selling the Ford Kuga compact crossover SUV in Europe since 2008. North America was originally scheduled to receive the Kuga, but these plans were later dropped due to some cost issues.

At the 2011 Detroit Motor Show, Ford unveiled the Vertrek concept - which is basically the replacement for the Kuga, but also one which is also adapted for US tastes so it can take over once the Ford Escape is discontinued.

The Vertrek concept is based on Ford's global C-segment platform, which includes the all-new Ford Focus range launching early in 2011 in North America and Europe, plus the latest C-MAX and Grand C-MAX multi-activity vehicles.

Derrick Kuzak, Ford group vice president of Global Product Development said of the concept: "Vertrek concept is a no-compromise solution we feel utility vehicle customers will embrace around the world. It is a revolution compared to what is typically seen in this segment in North America and is a stylish evolution compared with products outside North America. This new design is sleeker and more fuel efficient and delivers the capability, including people and cargo volume, customers demand globally."

The Ford Vertrek displays a range of features and design cues which have come from their European vehicles. But they've also combined that with levels of cargo space, trailer-tow and off-road capability expected by US buyers.

Ford has utilized their global design language "Kinetic Design" for the Vertrek concept. That means the vehicle has been designed to look like it's in motion even when stationery. Whether that holds true or not for the Vertrek is a matter of opinion. One thing that is certain is the fact the Vertrek looks good from almost every angle. It's neat, clean and coherent.

The Ford Vertrek concept is equipped with the latest high-tech EcoBoost engine. That means it's motivated by a 1.6 litre turbocharged 4-cylinder which offers the performance of a larger displacement engine, and the fuel economy of a smaller engine.

To further improve the Vertrek's fuel economy it is fitted with an engine stop/start system and regenerative braking.

The interior of the Ford Vertek is incredibly light thanks to the glass panel running down the center of the roof. The four individual sports seats are clearly divided by a center console running in-between.
