Curious, it seems Sport has been discontinued. Take rate must have been super low.

Lots of deleted bits and pieces, it's easy to tell when a Ford car is being killed.

Yes sir MKII, didn't even have to go past Page 1 to see all the de-contenting.

Saw that too.  Thought maybe it was an optional engine for the Titanium but not listed as so.  Most likely an editing mistake and somebody forgot to delete that line.  Bet it disappears when the fuel mileage numbers are added.  Seems like on those order guides they always make small description corrections later.

Doubt there will be another Fusion Sport, at least a V6 version.  If you look on Autotrader, there are still some new 2017 Sports on dealer lots if you can believe that.  Read on another forum/post somewhere that a fellow says he got, if I remember right, $14,000 off MSRP.  Tells me they haven't been selling like hotcakes, so doubt Ford will invest in another low sales trim level, especially one that requires unique parts to mount the V6 powertrain.  They'll concentrate on trim levels that sell the most.  Wonder if they will get rid of the V6 in the MKZ too for 2020.

I would take the 2023 date with a grain of salt.  The date has changed more than once and I'm sure will change again.  If so, will probably be a stripped down version by then.

For what it's worth a lot of the 2017+ MKZs I see driving around are V6s. 

 

As for the 2023 thing that came from a dealer guy so it's probably accurate. Things could change at the drop of a hat though.

There is next to no demand for a performance 4 door sedan for the most part-the SHO has always had almost $4500 rebate on its entire production run and the Fusion Sport seems similar. 

If people are going to pay 40K+ for a car, they rather buy a CUV instead. Not to mention the Explorer Sport seems to do well sales wise from what I can tell around me...

Or a luxury brand car like BMW 3-Series, Tesla Model 3, Jaguar XE, Alfa Romeo Giulia, etc. Even those cars are suffering from the CUV insanity though.

While the '20 Fusion will clearly be the value play in the midsize market (and probably attract a lot of bottom-feeders), despite all the disappointing decontenting, it's pretty clear that Ford is focusing the Fusion on the fleet market.  Expect the Fusion to be a player in the 'hoods, overflowing the rental lots, and used by government desk jockeys by the boatload.

That is already the case. When I visit Washington, D.C. for work, I see lots of late model Ford Fusions with GSA federal government license plates, and at rental car places near DCA airport and in the city. Wouldn't be surprised if by 2020, fleet becomes 50%+ of all U.S. Ford Fusion sales.

Taking a second look at the '20 changes and I see that the decontenting is major.  Many of the features that swung me over to a Fusion are being removed, like the power passenger seat on the SE.  Ditching the spare tire is taking things too far, though.  It's now Kia-laughable.  They'd better not raise prices for '20, or even hold the line; this calls for decreases.  I can see that some of it is to justify the SEL trim.  For the '19s, a $4500 increase over the SE was too much and I doubt many SELs are being sold.  If they'd gone to $28K instead of overpricing to $29.5K, I might have been able to see it.
