    Appearing at the 1979 show, the Ford "Tuareg" off-road concept vehicle was based on the 1978 European Fiesta. A 1.1-liter engine teamed with a four-speed manual tranny provided power. The Tuareg also had a beefier suspension than the Fiesta, and was fitted with sand/mud tires. Special body features included the five functional louvers on the hood , larger wheel arches that flared into the running boards and thin tubular steel bumpers.
