The Lincoln brand will also get a full-size crossover based on the Ford Fairlane concept. The production version of that vehicle, which is expected to be displayed at the Detroit auto show in January,
was shown at the event. Employees also saw two new versions of the F-Series pickup and freshened versions of the Focus, Five Hundred and Mustang.
In addition, Ford executives told participants that the next Ford Explorer would be based on a car platform. Up until now, the popular SUV has been built as a body-on-frame vehicle like a pickup.
