Besides the fact that it looks nothing like its namesake, what can be bad about a vehicle that has a refrigerator built right into the rear door? We suppose that depends on how you feel about being designated the official bartender at any future picnics you might attend. Calling its Fairlane concept a "new type of people-mover," Ford has actually created the ultimate tailgating vehicle, complete with flip-down utility area, fridge, cutting area, and utensils built right into the rear door. Said door also conveniently opens three ways (left, right, and down) for convenient access in any crowded parking lot. The Fairlane concept rides on an all-wheel-drive version of Ford's midsize CD3 architecture, and is powered by their 3.0-liter/210-horse all-aluminum V-6 Duratec engine mated to a six-speed transmission. Driver's zone features command seating and a low dash for greater visibility, thus ensuring safe transportation to any tailgating function.
