G.O Automobiles unveiled its latest global product offering, the all-New Ford Freestyle, a cool, capable and connected, compact utility vehicle (CUV) for Nepal consumers. The all-new product from Ford is said to combine SUV-like robust design, benchmark performance, innovative technologies and outstanding fuel efficiency – for greater choice to consumers in Nepal and markets around the world.
According to the company, the all-new Ford Freestyle embodies the aspirations of free-spirited buyers who are uninhibited and love to live life to the fullest. The vehicle features a striking-look, a commanding stance, and also uses design elements common to more expensive mini SUVs. The Freestyle comes paired with Ford’s all-new, three-cylinder 1.2L TiVCT petrol engine promising to deliver outstanding fuel efficiency. The naturally aspirated engine will generate best-in-class 96 PS of peak power and 120 Nm of torque to deliver Ford’s fun-to-drive DNA. Freestyle delivers sportier performance in all driving conditions and features a uniquely tuned suspension with increased track-width, high ground clearance, TCS, ABS with EBD and uniquely tuned EPAS among others.
As for safety features, the Freestyle will continue Ford’s leadership in safety, offering up to six airbags. With the introduction of Active Rollover Prevention (ARP), Freestyle is designed to perform safely in extreme situations, without compromising on the fun-to-drive elements. Combined with Electronic Stability Control, the ARP system will be able to automatically detect potential rollover situations by applying brakes to individual tyres and decrease engine torque.The Ford Freestyle also features Ford’s in-car infotainment system, SYNC 3 with a 6.5- inch touchscreen which allows drivers to control their entertainment and their connected smartphone with conversational voice commands. SYNC 3 system is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
