2005 Chicago Auto Show: Ford SynUS Photo Gallery
Security and sanctuary from urban life
Claiming it built the SynUS to provide security and sanctuary from urban life, Ford's small but mighty B-sized concept takes its inspiration from bank vaults and armored cars, with a security mode that deploys protective shutters over the windshield and side windows and uses bulletproof glass in the smaller flank windows. Once locked safely inside, passengers can reverse their seatbacks to comfortably surf the `net or watch movies on the ginormous 45-inch widescreen liquid crystal display built into the tailgate. Should you need to make a speedy escape, Ford's 2.0-liter/134-horse turbodiesel and 18-inch alloy wheels wrapped in P225/50-18 performance tires will help you make a fashionable getaway
