Ford shows Faction concept
Los Angeles, California – Ford calls it a “tough, yet fashionable three-door SUV with all-wheel drive, novel utility and multimedia features..for city drivers who haul friends and gear, and who need to maneuver quickly through crowded streets.”
Unveiled at the L.A. auto show on Thursday, the Faction has a unique camera system that provides a view of directly behind the vehicle.
J Mays, Ford vice president, Design, commented, “The Faction concept is targeted at a new world audience that is very design savvy,” Mays says. “This is a refined product in much the same way as a nice watch or a piece of designer furniture. And that’s why were showing it in L.A. This is the only trend-setting city in America with a lifestyle built around people and their cars.”
