Fairlane's three interior zones feature unmatched function and unique materials including automotive firsts like maple bentwood, Lloyd Loom woven rattan made from recycled paper, and a durable woven canvas that help separate each row by job description. The front zone is driver-focused and features great visibility, thanks to a low dash and high seating positions, as well as easy-control ergonomics. This purposeful zone is reinforced by sophisticated design elements.

The Ford Fairlane concept creates a new type of people-mover that explores a blend of upscale, modern design with Ford hallmarks of safety, interior spaciousness and functionality. Fairlane a classic name that recalls the splendor of Henry Ford's estate features a well-proportioned, purposeful stance that promotes Ford fundamentals a spacious and flexible interior, safety leadership and confident driving character.

The Ford Fairlane concept is a six-passenger, three-row people mover with a unique shape. Its well-balanced proportions are the foundation for a modern, sophisticated design with a minivan-sized, no-compromise interior. Fairlane also features unique active lifestyle solutions like the "rolling galley" concept in the functional rear utility zone.

Fairlane features a well-defined hood, a large cabin with upright A-pillars, four side doors with low step-in height, and a rear door with an industry-leading three-way tailgate. The rear door opens to the left or right, while the upper glass section flips up. Fairlane's design blends this new shape with sophisticated elements such as the bold, three-bar grille that signifies the new face of Ford.

The exterior is defined by upright front roof pillars that stretch the people-mover concept upward, creating a minivan-size interior. The interior has three unique zones with a unifying design theme, but that serve individual needs.

"Henry Ford's Fair Lane estate stands out for its design detail and restraint," says Mays. "Throughout his home, you can appreciate Henry Ford's appreciation of the great outdoors and fine craftsmanship in favor of opulence. The Fairlane concept embraces that spirit in a very modern way."

The Duratec 30 3.0-liter V-6 engine features all-aluminum construction, dual overhead cams, four valves per cylinder, intake Variable Cam Timing (i-VCT) and electronic throttle control. It could deliver the smooth, spirited performance, along with good fuel economy and very low emissions ratings that are enjoyed in production versions.
