Coming to the back, the fascia features dominant extended wraparound taillights
Adding up to the new look, there will no longer be Ford’s nearly-20-year-old third window and its replacement will be a window line bending upwards, pretty much the same with the existing generation; the window line also receives a reverse kink treatment for the rear window.
