Ford Capri 2025: A Modern Take on the European Mustang – Ford is bringing back the famous Capri name in 2025, but it won’t be a retro-styled car like the first one. The new Capri will be a sleek, modern coupe SUV built on the same platform as the electric Explorer compact. There will be a choice of powertrains for the new Capri, from a base model with rear-wheel drive and 168bhp that can go 220 miles to a high-performance model with all-wheel drive and 335bhp that can go 300 miles. The new Capri will also have high-tech features, like a digital dashboard, wireless charging, and many systems to help the driver.
Design: Exterior and Interior
Regarding looks, the new Capri will differ from the Explorer and other Ford cars. The front will have a thin face with LED headlights and a big Ford logo. The back will have a stylish diffuser and a full-width LED taillight bar. The roof will slope, the windows will not have frames, and the door handles will be flush with the doors. The side shape will be smooth and efficient. Also, the new Capri will have big metal wheels between 18 and 21 inches across.
The new Capri will have a roomy, luxurious cabin with enough space for four people and a large trunk. A 12-inch tablet navigation system will take up most of the dashboard. It will work with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Ford’s SYNC 4 software. The cluster of instruments will also be computerized, with a 10-inch screen that can be changed to show different data. The new Capri will also have high-end items, like plush seats, wood trim, and ambient lighting. There will also be add-ons for the new Capri, like a panoramic sunroof, a head-up display, and a Bang & Olufsen music system.
As with the Explorer, the new Capri will have an electric base. This means it will come with an electric motor in the rear, and a front-mounted motor for all-wheel drive will be an option. It will be able to go from 0 to 60 mph in about 9 seconds and hit a top speed of 110 mph with its 168bhp engine and 55kWh battery pack. And the base model can go about 220 miles on a single charge. A fast charger can charge it to 80% in about 40 minutes.
The high-performance model will have 335bhp and an 82kWh battery pack. This will let it go from 0 to 60mph in about 5 seconds and top out at 140mph. Another great thing about the high-performance model is that it will have a range of about 300 miles on a single charge. A fast charger can fully charge it in about 30 minutes.
Also, there will be four ways to drive the new Capri: Normal, Eco, Sport, and Custom. The driver can choose how these modes change the engine response, steering feel, damper settings, and regenerative braking.
Release Date and Price
The new Capri should arrive in late 2024 for the 2025 model year. Europe is where it will first be sold. It will go up against cars like the Nissan Z Proto, the Toyota GR Supra, the Subaru BRZ, and the Audi TT. The base model of the new Capri should cost around £35,000, and the high-performance model should cost around £50,000.
