Ford Airstream Nears the Mainstream
- The Ford Airstream is truly one-of-a-kind. Few vehicles elicit a mixed
reaction of disbelief, fascination and a comedic giggle during auto
shows but the Ford Airstream concept car might have successfully done
just that. Conjuring up images of wacky road trips, the Ford Airstream
looks like the birth child of a marriage between family vans, space
capsules, Airstream trailers, and a Pimp My Ride episode.
Launched at the 2007 Detroit Auto Show earlier this year, the Ford
Airstream is the product of a collaboration between Ford Motors and
Airstream that came about while the former was busy designing a concept
vehicle centered around the idea of the American Journey. With
Airstream holding a strong presence in American road travel, the two
coming together was an ideal match.
Can this be the future of road travel? Ford certainly designed this
with a focus on what crossover vehicles might look like in the future.
The Ford Airstream looks fun and comfortable, the technology is top-
notch and, with partial funding from the U.S. Department of Energy, it
might prove a great solution to our current fuel woes....
