In August last year, Ford registered the Mondeo Evos moniker for future use in production or concept vehicles. Today, FordAuthority reports the Blue Oval company has also filed a trademark on the Stormtrak name in Europe, once more fuelling rumors about a potential successor to today’s Mondeo for the European market.
According to what we’ve heard so far, Ford could be preparing a lifted wagon that will be available at both sides of the big pond. This new Stormtrak moniker could signal the automaker is advancing with the model’s development. Of course, it could also be used for a completely different vehicle but nothing can be confirmed at this point.
Initial reports suggest the lifted rugged wagon will compete against the Subaru Outback and will be based on a stretched version of the new Euro-spec Focus. The C2 modular platform allows for use of different powertrain layouts, including combustion engines and hybrid systems, as well as an all-wheel-drive configuration.
