Is Ford working on a new half-tonne bakkie?
 

There are rumours that Ford is planning to return to the half-tonne bakkie market with a new global model based on the latest-generation Focus, which recently had its international launch.

Ford has not been in the half-tonne market in SA since the demise of the Bantam, leaving it all to the Nissan NP200 after the Chevrolet Utility disappeared with the departure of General Motors in 2017.

A spokesperson for Ford Southern Africa dismissed the rumour, although some sources say it will be built in Brazil for global markets. – BD Motor News
