So, are the rumors true about the Fusion being cancelled after 2019?

How could there been a new model? No prototypes, no announcements. What platform? 2020 redesign was announced as cancelled.

Easy, they dont change a damn thing. If anything, strip features and increase the price.

They don't need 50 million option combinations of 4 door cars anymore. Purple with red interior, power windows, but manual locks and steering, but power brakes. That was the go-go 60's, when Big 3 had cash to burn.

And "so much" for any next generation Fusion "sedans". Maybe an active model CUV?

It's like when the MN12 or Panther was dropped.

I had a meeting with our Ford Zone Manager on Wednesday to do the "wholesale" allocation for June, July and August production (varies by model) and not surprisingly the subject of Ford's recent announcement was discussed. Ford's telling their dealer taht the Fusion will be available for at least 3-4 years. Great. It was announced months ago that Ford had cancelled development of the next generation Fusion and informed suppliers of it. The damage was done with the initial announcement and now Ford's trying to walk it back since they haven't said anything about the final Fusion production timetable. If so, it mean that the Fusion will likely go 10 years without a redesign which is a lot like what they did years ago with the Taurus. Unfortunately, it seems like the Fusion will follow in the Taurus' footsteps and become irrelevant in the marketplace. Further, it seems that Dearborn never learns from its past mistakes and just keeps repeating them.

 

Further adventures to follow from Ford's CEO who's claim to fame is reinventing the office furniture environment while at Steelcase!

The 2019 Fusion Order Guide has still not been released to Dealers yet but they've started loading some of the information into the WBDO Ordering System. No pricing is available yet so only minimal information is available so far.

 

  • Fusion SEL model added
  • Sport AWD - #400A package only w/Navigation & Power Moonroof included
  • Titanium - Navigation & Power Moonroof included

New Russet interior trim on certain models and new "Active" trim on some models.

 

New colors include Rich Copper Metallic, Velocity Blue & Agate Black.

 

I'll provide additional information and the order guide as soon as it's available.
