    I like this “GT140” idea.
    A GTLM full sized SUV would definitely be competitive at Le Mans, mostly because it would take up the entire track.

    I do think that we could get away with some more contemporary throwbacks. My proposal: The SVT COBRA R, however this time it would be based on the Ecosport. Complete with giant wing, fender flares, and the introduction of a new high performance™️ CVT transmission.

    Why not call it a LTD or a Tempo? They're probably going to sell just like either. :p

    You're missing the point of the convention. The idea is to garner every bit of the appeal of the namesake vehicle without making any attempt to honor the heritage.

    *sigh*

    The LTD nameplate definitely needs a reboot. Nothing comes close conveying the feeling of luxury like an acronym that may or may not stand for "Limited".

    Only thing better would be for Chevy to bring back the profoundly awesome "Citation".

    This is like when Dodge brought back the Dart as that weak 4 door sedan

    Because every Dart was a Swinger or Demon right?

    No it's not cause the Dart actually had origins similar to the modern era revival. This is not like anything really before it American auto wise.

    I'm still moderately upset they didn't call the Dart the Neon - long live the Neon!

    I'm waiting for the rebirth of the Chevy Celebrity, personally. Right up there with Mitsubishi's intentionally-misspelled Carisma.

    Readers' bait? Since Ford decided to phase out passenger cars (in the US?), maybe the 'Mach 1' name will fly in europe or asia. Who knows?

    Ford's Machs, to me, symbolized a next level Mustang of sorts. But this electric vehicle has yet to make it into production. It just might work outside of the US as a standard unit.

    Best of luck with that.

    So you're telling me they're going to copypaste the Mustang styling...

    ...And do so on an SUV.

    Yeah, that's looking like they're taking a page out of Porsche's book on using the styling cues from the Mustang and placing them on this new SUV thing. Just like how Porsche put styling cues from the 996 911 onto the Cayenne during its first generation.

    Wait, so they'll make the new SUV Mach 1 have the looks of a 'stang?

    I think I'm gonna puke. What were they thinking? Ford these days are lacking originality, with how the Fiesta and Focus looks these days. Yeah, I don't think I'm caring about Ford anymore. I don't think there's a saving grace here.

    They're not alone. And really, when did they last demonstrate any.

    No kidding, as I was curious loking at other cars, the new Mercedes EQC looks like identical to a 1st gen face-lift of a Ford Edge.

    We're meant to go forwards with car designs, NOT BACKWARDS.

    Unless we are getting an electric Mustang and it's not actually an SUV at all.

    It’d be a bit of a plot twist if this thing’s actually properly quick. Mustang styling cues, fully electric, heritage performance nameplate.... Maybe they’re hints that this won’t be just another boring crossover thingy.

    Does this make the concept an "FTmach-1"?

    Ford filed for trademark for Mach E/Mach-E likely do to the backlash for using Mach1 on the electric Mustang crossover thing

    EVboost might have sounded better?

    An electric Mustang, if it's good, could be a big, big thing for Ford.

    I saw a new Bullitt at a set of lights. Really nice. Can't help but think a Mach I for the Mustang is a missed oopportunity, if it's not a Mustang. Would be a nice 50 year "Anniversary" for that first model.
