The ford torino is an automobile which was produced by ford for the north american market between 1968 and 1976. It was a competitor in the intermediate market segment. The car was named after the city of turin(torino, in italian), considered the italian detroit. The torino was initially an upscale variation of the intermediate sized ford fairlane, which ford produced between 1962 and 1970. After 1968, the fairlane name was retained for the base models with lower levels of trim than those models which wore the torino name. During this time, the torino was considered a subseries to the fairlane. By 1970 torino had become the primary name for ford's intermediate, and the fairlane was now a subseries of the torino. In 1971 the fairlane name was dropped altogether, and all ford intermediates were called torino. This name was one of several originally proposed for the mustang while in development.
