The 2021 Ford Equator 7-seater SUV was recently caught on camera in its production avatar in China. It’s one of the products that developed under Ford Motor Company and Jiangling Motor Corporation JV. The model is likely to hit showrooms in China in the first half of 2021.

The front fascia of the SUV carries a large chromed grille with octagonal air intake, narrow LED headlamps with DRLs and a large bumper with wide air dams. The LED auxiliary lights, which are placed just below the grille, also work as fog lamps. Read – 2021 Ford EcoSport Facelift With Mahindra’s Engine Coming Soon
