Ford Atlas Concept: The Future of Pickups
.Ford Atlas Concept is the future vision for pickup trucks
.Innovative design integrates capability and smart technologies to
transform customer expectations of what Built Ford Tough® will look like
in the future
.Next-generation EcoBoost® --
coupled with advanced engineering and design innovations -- creates leading
fuel efficiency and increased capability
.Trailer towing and cargo hauling are made easier with innovative features
designed specifically for truck owners to improve utility and confidence
DETROIT, Jan. 15, 2013 -- Ford today unveiled the Ford Atlas Concept to
showcase the design, capability, fuel efficiency and smart technologies
that will define future pickup trucks.
"The Ford Atlas Concept previews the innovations that will transform what
people expect from their pickup," said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president,
Global Product Development. "With 36 years as America's best-selling
pickup, we are absolutely committed to setting the agenda in the truck
Design with purpose
The Ford Atlas Concept is inspired by decades of listening to customers at
the places they work and play. The result is a purpose-driven design with
prominent wheel arches, a wide stance and chiseled grille -- all to
reinforce its functional Built Ford Tough® image.
"We wanted the concept to reflect how Ford trucks help customers in both
their worlds -- professionally and personally," said J Mays, Ford group
vice president and chief creative officer. "Every surface and feature in
the vehicle has been crafted for purpose and capability while retaining an
unmistakable Built Ford Tough look."
The interior is themed with structural styling cues and features the latest
thinking in comfort, utility and refinement. Innovative, thin, lightweight
seating in comfortable leather allows for extra legroom for rear passengers
-- along with integrated storage for smaller items. "Floating" instrument
pods and glove-friendly buttons and controls keep the interior functional
and ruggedly stylish.
Leading fuel efficiency
The Ford Atlas Concept features a next-generation EcoBoost® powertrain, which introduces
truck-enhanced Auto Start-Stop engine shutoff technology. Auto Start-Stop
shuts off the engine when stopped in traffic to save fuel -- and smartly
suspends the feature when the truck knows it is towing.
EcoBoost engines use gasoline direct
injection and turbocharging to deliver
fuel-economy gains of up to 20 percent and reduction of CO2 emissions of up
to 15 percent, compared with larger-displacement engines. More than 500,000
EcoBoost engines have been sold
globally, including 250,000 in the Ford F-150.
The Ford Atlas Concept goes further to save fuel through a combination of
active aerodynamic elements that reduce wind resistance. They include:
.Active Grille Shutters: Automatic shutters behind the grille stay open
when extra engine cooling is needed, such as during low-speed stop-and-go
driving or while working in hot weather. The shutters automatically close
to improve aerodynamics when cruising on the highway at steady speeds
.Active Wheel Shutters: Automatic shutters in the wheels are hidden to
improve style at rest and low speeds, but automatically close at highway
speeds to improve aerodynamics. Self-charging batteries use energy from the
wheels' motion to power the shutters
.Drop-Down Front Air Dam: A drop-down front wind spoiler lowers at highway
speeds to improve underbody airflow. The air dam is raised at low speeds to
improve ground clearance -- helpful for off-roading
.Power Running Boards: Auto-deploying running boards help passengers enter
the truck at rest and tuck up against the truck when it is moving to
improve aerodynamics and ground clearance
