New 2024 Ford Capri: price, specs and release date

Written By Phill Tromans

2024 Ford Capri

Ford has drawn back the covers on the first car to sport the Capri badge since 1986. But it’s not a coupe – the new 2024 Ford Capri is an electric SUV.

While the new Ford Capri bears a few design elements that hark back to what many petrolheads consider an icon of British motoring in the 1980s, the new car is very modern, with sleek looks, a battery range of up to 389 miles and a starting price of £42,075 on the road.

The 2024 Ford Capri is on sale now. Like the Mustang Mach-E and the Explorer, Ford hopes the new Capri will tempt lots of new customers to its brand, and away from myriad rivals that include the Volkswagen ID.5 and Skoda Enyaq iV (both of which share mechanical underpinnings with the Ford thanks to an engineering collaboration), the Polestar 2 and the Nissan Ariya.

New 2024 Ford Capri: prices and release date

The 2024 Ford Capri is available to order now, with deliveries due by the end of the year. 

Prices start at £42,075 for the entry-level 55kWh model, although that version won’t be available to order until later this year.

Right now, then, you can order the £48,075 rear-wheel-drive 77kWh model in Select trim or pay £52,175 for the Premium trim. If you want all-wheel drive, it’ll cost £56,175 and comes only in Premium trim.

Although it's now an SUV, the 2024 Ford Capri bears a few stylistic nods to earlier Capri models

New 2024 Ford Capri: interior and exterior

In fairness to Ford, simply recreating the Ford Capri for 2024 wouldn’t have been a good business decision. There’s a reason there are very, very few new coupes on sale these days – hardly anyone buys them.

So the Capri badge now adorns a mid-size electric SUV that bears more than a passing resemblance to the Ford Explorer. Look closely, though, and there are a few nods to the original Capri, including the twin headlights, the sloping rear windscreen and the curved window shape at the C-pillar.

The Capri is 4634m long, 2063mm wide including mirrors and 1626mm high. It rides on 19-inch alloy wheels as standard, with 20-inch rims on the Premium trim and 21-inch units on the options list for an extra £1000. Frozen White paint is included as standard, while for £800 you can opt for Agate Black, Magnetic grey, Blue My Mind, Rapid Red or Vivid Yellow.

Inside, Select trim cars have massage seats as standard, upholstered in Sensico (a synthetic leather) and cloth, or full Sensico on Premium models. The Dashboard is uncluttered and dominated by a huge 14.6-inch portrait infotainment screen in the centre. A digital driver display sits behind the steering wheel. Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are included as standard.

Unlike the original Capri there’s very decent rear seat space with good headroom, and a large boot measuring 572 litres (567 in the Premium model), although that’s measured without factoring the movable boot floor. Fold down the rear seats and Ford promises up to 1510 litres of space for larger items. Interior storage space looks reasonable too, with the headline feature being a 17-litre centre storage area called "MegaConsole".

New 2024 Ford Capri: electric motors, range and batteries

For now, you can order a Ford Capri in rear-wheel drive (RWD), with a 286PS electric motor and a 77kWh battery for a range of up to 389 miles (369 miles in Premium trim), or with all-wheel drive (AWD) with a 79kWh capacity and 340PS but a reduced range of 346 miles.

The 0-62mph time is pretty brisk considering all models weigh more than 2000kg – the RWD model manages 6.4 seconds, while the AWD Capri will do the same in 5.3 seconds.

No heat pump is included – if you want one, it's an extra £1050.

If you’re planning to tow with your Capri, you can haul up to 1000kg (braked) with the RWD model, and up to 1200kg with the AWD version.

New 2024 Ford Capri: trim levels

At launch, there are two available trims – Select and Premium. Both are very well equipped as standard.

Select cars come with 19-inch alloy wheels, part-Sensico upholstery and an electrically adjustable driver’s seat with a massage function. The front seats are both heated. And there’s a seven-speaker sound system with, Ford says, an “integrated sound bar”.

Upgrade to the Capri Premium and you’ll get 20-inch alloy wheels, an electric boot lid, a panoramic roof and upgraded matrix LED headlights, as well as a 10-speaker B&O sound system.

Options include the £1800 Driver Assistance Pack (£1300 on the Premium trim), which features a head-up display, extra active safety features and, on the Select trim, the panoramic roof and 360-degree camera system.
