The blue oval unveiled the Ford Atlas Concept at this week’s Detroit show, labelling it a vehicle to showcase the design, capability, fuel efficiency and smart technologies that will define future utility vehicles.

”The Ford Atlas Concept previews the innovations that will transform what people expect from their pickup (ute),” Raj Nair, the company’s group vice president, Global Product Development, said.

Ford claims the concept is inspired by decades of listening to customers at the places they work and play adding they believe the result is a purpose-driven design with prominent wheel arches, a wide stance and chiseled grille to reinforce its functional image. 
Designers enhanced truck functionality, while creating new advanced features which include multiple tie-down points integrated within the cargo box walls and load floor, along with 110-volt electrical outlets in the cargo box to charge power tools. An integrated roof carrying system and hidden extendable ramps give the truck unique functionality for a variety of jobs.

Inside the leather seating allows for extra legroom for rear passengers – along with integrated storage for smaller items while there are ”floating” instrument pods and glove-friendly buttons and controls.

I reckon it is still gay…and with a name like Atlas it just sounds like a condom brand.

The Russians though seem to know how to build non-gay utes:
