Ford Vignale TSX-4

The Ford Vignale TSX-4 by Ghia

Vehicle Overview

The Ford Vignale TSX-4 (Touring Sport Extra-4-Wheel-Drive) was an innovative and luxurious five-door sport wagon, built on the mechanics of the Ford Tempo. Featuring a 120-horsepower, 2.3-liter engine mounted transversely at the front, the TSX-4 was designed with performance and aerodynamics in mind. It boasted a projected top speed of 120 mph and an impressive drag coefficient of 0.30, indicative of its advanced engineering and sleek design. One of the standout features of the Ford Vignale TSX-4 was its low-profile front end, which integrated an integral spoiler, radiator air intake, and a flush-fitting headlight unit that spanned the full width of the vehicle, creating a distinct light bar. The rear design was equally forward-thinking, with a single-section screened-glass tailgate that extended forward into the roof and hinged above the rear seats, enhancing both accessibility and aesthetics. The interior of the TSX-4 was packed with cutting-edge technology and luxury features. All interior controls were mounted on the steering wheel, simplifying driver interaction and improving safety. The ignition system was operated through a high-security, programmable push-button code located on the center console, reflecting a high level of sophistication and security. Adding to its luxurious and high-tech appeal, the TSX-4 included a television set in the rear and a personal computer with a keyboard and visual display units, housed in a special security compartment. These features underscored the vehicle’s status as a modern, well-equipped sport wagon, designed to cater to the needs of tech-savvy, luxury-oriented consumers. Developed in Italy by the renowned design house Ghia, the Ford Vignale TSX-4 showcased a blend of Italian design elegance and advanced automotive engineering. Its combination of performance, aerodynamics, and innovative interior technology made it a standout concept vehicle, illustrating Ford’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of car design and luxury during that era.
