Ford is expected to add a 2.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engine by the 2015 model year.

C-Max: The C-Max compact five-seat minivan — which some Americans may view as more hatchback than minivan — will come in hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants, but no gasoline-powered version. Ford has ditched a seven-passenger gasoline version. The plug-in version will carry the C-Max Energi name. They are expected to arrive in rapid succession, if not simultaneously, in 2012 as 2013 models.

Escape: A redesigned, sleeker Escape based on a version of the next-generation Kuga compact crossover developed in Europe likely will hit the United States for the 2013 model year. Ford showed a design concept of it called the Vertrek at the 2011 Detroit auto show. It will be on the compact car platform the Focus shares.

Ford has not commented on the future of an Escape Hybrid, but the close-in-size C-Max Hybrid may rule one out.

Edge: Ford reskinned the Edge in 2011. A redesign is expected in the 2014 or 2015 model year. It will be smaller and use Ford's global mid-sized platform.

Explorer: The redesigned Explorer went on sale late last year. Look for a refresh in the 2014 or 2015 model year.

Flex: The crossover will get a minor freshening for the 2012 model year, including a new grille and headlamps. Those who have seen it say the new look waters down the aggressive face on the current Flex. Expect a reskin for the 2015 model year.

It's still uncertain if the Flex will join the Explorer and Taurus and get the 2.0-liter four-cylinder EcoBoost engine in 2013. The 2011 Flex offers the 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engine.

Expedition: Ford could freshen or reskin the Expedition SUV for the 2012 or 2013 model year, giving it a redesigned grille and some of the same powertrains as the F-series pickups. Those could include a 3.5-liter V6 for improved fuel economy, and the 5.0-liter V8 currently in the 2011 Mustang, replacing the Expedition's current 5.4-liter V8.

Ford may discontinue the extended-length Expedition EL in the 2012 or 2013 model year because of poor sales.

F-150: The F-150 will be redesigned for the 2015 or 2016 model year and switch to a new platform called the P552. Ford replaced the pickup's powertrains this year.

F-series Super Duty: Ford launched a freshened 2011 Super Duty with a new in-house diesel engine and a 6.2-liter V8 last year. Look for another freshening in the 2014 model year.

Transit Connect: In December 2010, Ford launched the electric version of the Transit Connect compact van. Look for a redesign around 2013.

Econoline: A replacement vehicle for the Econoline is possible in the 2014 model year as a derivative of the next-generation Transit, which is sold outside North America. Ford has given some test Transits to U.S. drivers for feedback.

Ford likely would replace the van then only if the automaker needs a more fuel-efficient replacement to meet tougher fuel-economy rules.
