Ford EX Concept
The Ford EX (informally known as the Ford Ex and Ford Extreme) is a concept car created by the Ford Motor Company. It was first introduced at the 2001 North American International Auto Show. The EX was built to be an off-road vehicle.
Engine and Design
The EX is powered by a front-mounted, single overhead cam, 4.0-liter supercharged V6 gasoline engine, capable of producing up to 375 horsepower (280 kW) (93.8 hp per liter) and 410 ft·lbf (560 N·m) of torque. It has a five-speed manual transmission with four-wheel drive (4WD), and large 33-inch tires. The design of the vehicle is spare, as it has no doors. The exterior is mainly composed of a durable chrome-molybdenum steel exoskeleton, advantageous for its off-road capability.
The EX concept was featured in the 2004 live-action film Thunderbirds.
The EX concept was featured as a playable car in the video games Ford Racing 2 and Ford Racing 3.
