So basically Ford says that you can have any kind of truck from us as long as its an F150.

Renders make it look pretty good too.

Seems far unlikely to happen in America but in other parts of the world it seems possible.

Wagons generally just never happen in NA any more. I think they have been completely replaced by CUVs.

And it's growing, becoming more and more difficult for wagons to slot in, safe to say that era has phased out on a mass scale.

Well it looks okay, but Taurus is FWD shitbox. There have been FWD coupe utilities, but they are so nose-heavy when empty they border on dangerous. Real utes exist only in Australia, but will be extinct in a couple of years.
Ford should build one based on the Mustang (but change the name if you don't want to sully the name).
Get some people from Ford Australia to do it.
I am not looking forward to the Santa Cruz, based on ix35. Nor the Mercedes ute (probably will too expensive for anyone but rich poseurs).
Hyundai how about a ute based on Genesis/K900 platform? That would be interesting.

As interesting as it would be for a ute like that, I see them targeting volume and nothing too micro-niche as that would be especially when it comes to the north american market, maybe on the eastern side of the world it'll do well, much like the Holden UTE.

That rendering looks horrible. Why is it so low to the ground? wouldn't your truck clearance be too low when it weighted down by heavy objects in the truck bed?

Its more of an ute. They are lower to the ground. They are quite popular in Australia. For example, here is a Holden ute sold in the US.
