It was designed as a small eco-friendly SUV that can turn into a pickup. It had the Ranger's 2.3L I4 modified to meet PZEV standards, but the failure and stupidity comes in a soy based body. Imagine if Ford was so stupid they started to produce them! RODENTS WILL BE EATING PEOPLE'S TRUCKS!!! OMG!!! But not only Ford, but Chrysler tried to make a plastic car (not out of soy! Chrysler will always be better) the CCV but it was unsafe so that flunked, would've been a great idea (the CCV, not the Model U) as it would be a really cheap car!
