Ford is making a ‘Global Announcement’ on 3rd Feb 2014. What this could be about. Guesses?

Re: Blue Oval: The Ford Motor Company. Your Likes and Dislikes?

In a lighter vein maybe an apology for those who booked the Ecosport in India.Is it something like the New Figo sedan?
Global. Could be the Next generation Ford Figo.
Ford used a similar approach for Figo, Fiesta and EcoSport. Now there are two old cars in their lineup. It could be about one of them: Classic replacement or New Endeavour.

I think it could be the unveiling of the Next generation Ford Figo based sedan. It is reported to get launched in mid 2015 and going by the past record, Ford generally unveils cars about an year plus in advance of their actual launch dates.

It could be Figo based sedan and that's why Fiesta Classic prices have been slashed down by 1 lakh to clear the old stock! Its my guess, could be wrong too [:)]

New Figo & its sedan sibling. [;)]

But if they do not step up their production rate, and end up like ES, then its gona be negative approach. [anger]

Re: Global Announcement From Ford on 3rd Feb 2014

its sure New Figo and its sedan will show its face in India by February 3rd but what I am suspecting is something even bigger, like the Escort sedan or the Focus sedan, remember Mr Joginder made a statement about some premium car while he was interviewed by Autocar India chief editor, and from the sources I have in Chennai Ford Ford might introduce 3 new models for India,
Ford had already proclaimed they will release 9 new models in India out of which Figo,global Fiesta and Ecosport made it to our shores, so there is room for 6 new unveiling, I hope Ford will bring Kuga,Escort sedan/Focus sedan,new Mondeo, and an MPV which might be B-Max or C- Max and new Endeavor and 2 more mystery products
Well for 2014 maximum of 3 new models rest will follow by 2015

I think it could either Focus or New Mondeo !!
The Focus if introduced is sure to become the next global Fiesta flop s successor because all cars currently in this segment has more rear legroom than the Focus, actually Focus is best selling car in the world and its Fords global VW Vento, which is in a way more than what anybody would ever want.
The Mondeo if introduced will raise Fords brand image bar to some extent that even premium VW will find hard time coping up with its super stylish Aston Martin looks

Whatever it is, Ford's next model launch in India will surely be overshadowed by the Ecosport delivery experience. No matter how good the next launch, people will think twice before booking the new vehicle as there would be zero confidence on Ford India to actually deliver the booked vehicle in reasonable time.

i think it could be the new Endeavour. It is a long time over due and the oldest product in their line up be it india or global.

May be a stripped down version of the legend "mustang"
Oh, Thats a dream that I have had for many years, well thats not going to happen, but Endeavor,Fiesta face lift,Figo sedan and hatch, are the most likely ones Focus/Escort and Kuga and Mondeo the most unlikely ones
