General Discussion Board / Re: Ford may Discontinue the Sedan

I don't know. I imagine there would always be demand for small vehicles and possibly even much smaller than we are used to. Also as john k mentions by getting rid of the smaller ones now I would think they are blowing the CAFE averages.

Ford dropping the car lines brings up one little problem.   CAFE,  Corporate Average Fuel Economy, on average what the whole Ford line can achieve, which is one of the reasons behind the Fusion and the tiny compact cars.   I wonder how they are going to get around the economy thing with just trucks and Mustangs?  Fuel cells hold so much promise, but NASA has been using them for 40 plus years, wonder why Musk hasn't jumped on them instead of batteries?

I like the brand. I have several wrench sets, sockets, and some slip-joint pliers. It seems KAL tools were sourced from the US as well as Korea, Taiwan, and Japan. At least that's where my stuff came from. They always reminded me of Craftsman quality in fit and finish.

Short sighted? definitely! They are capitulating to the Japanese and European brands in that space. That said, I think the internal combustion engine's days are numbered, and Ford (like many others) has done the research to identify what platforms can transition to electric power plants. My personal opinion is that in 20 years we'll be driving mostly new electric vehicles powered either by hydrogen fuel cells and/or batteries. If that's the case, the sedan platforms won't be large enough for extended range power plants.

I think GM is looking at dropping some of their compact cars as well. There is a very thin margin on small compact cars.They may be yielding to the imports who stand out in that market. Of course IMO gas prices won`t be below $3 for ever. So wound not scrap the tooling too quickly.

That's it exactly.

Oh, like the first time Ford did away with the Taurus when it was the number one selling car Bslap.

That does sort of standout as a shining example of MBA thinking.
