No, this is not how Ford intends to return to the sedan segment.
The Ford Mustang Mach-E proved that the 'Mustang' brand can morph into something other than a gas-powered pony car. Likewise, the upcoming all-electric Ford F-150 will challenge our conventional perceptions of what can power a hard-working truck. But how far can these established nameplates diverge from their original definition before it becomes truly ridiculous? TheSketchMonkey decided to test out that theory by redesigning the brand new Ford F-150 and creating an F-150 sedan. The concept is as bizarre as it sounds, but as with many unusual things, we couldn't resist taking a closer look.
The artist begins by building his ideal new F-150. He opted for the F-150 XLT with the Sport Package, which removes most of the exterior chrome accents. After a few more changes, he uses this as a base for the sedan transformation. Besides the obvious challenge of enclosing the F-150's open bed, the massive front-end of the truck needs to be effectively pressed down to suit a sedan shape. The end result is a particularly butch, aggressive F-150 sedan with the aura of a Chrysler 300. The artist admitted that it isn't perfect, and some details still look quite odd.
For instance, the wheels are especially large and the original F-150 mirrors don't quite match the feel of a sedan. Overall, it's a decent effort but many of the F-150's rugged styling cues would likely have to be toned-down for this to be an acceptable product. Of course, even if it were a more sensible concept, the chances of Ford building any sedan right now are low since the automaker ditched the sedan segment a few years ago, a decision it sticks by to this day. This, together with the fact that that half of the country's ten best-selling vehicles were pickups last year, means we're unlikely to ever see an F-150 sedan on the road - and that's fine by us.
