Though the GT and Continental officially were labeled as concepts, Fordís vice president of design, Moray Callum, says both closely resemble the production cars coming to market in 2016. Callum, 57, who replaced the retiring J Mays in early 2014, oversees all design work for both brands, with one of his tasks being to draw more distinctions between them.
In the past year, heís given the Ford Explorer, Edge and Escape a more upscale appearance, helping them command higher prices and stand out in a sea of red-hot utility vehicles. Says Callum: ďThe days of the bean counters holding us back are gone.Ē
