The Ford Fusion will very before long be axed. Only a couple of days prior, there were reports that the last enduring sedan in the brand’s lineup will leave the production lines on July 21. It turns out that the Lincoln MKZ, which underpins the same platform as the Fusion will likewise arrive at the stopping point on precisely the same date.
The production of the MKZ will reach a conclusion at the vehicle’s Hermosillo Assembly Plant in Mexico this late spring and that deals will proceed through the rest of the year. The plant will at that point be retooled for creation of the Ford Transit Connect business van.
As per FordAuthority, the absolute last examples of the extravagance car will move off the construction systems at the Ford Hermosillo plant in Sonora (Mexico) on July 21. That is a similar industrial facility that likewise amasses the more standard Fusion. Every single trim level will allegedly be ceased simultaneously, including the MKZ Hybrid and MKZ Black Label. Ford will supplant the two vehicles on the production lines with the new Bronco Sport.
While there were expectations of a swap for the MKZ, potentially badged a Zephyr, it presently looks impossible given Ford and Lincoln’s attention on SUVs, trucks and business vehicles in North America. Thinking about the abovementioned, the 2020 model year would viably turn into the last for the company’s lineup of luxury sedans. For its last year of creation, the MKZ got certain updates, including new hardware bundles, extra shading alternatives, new wheels, and grille plans for the diverse trim levels. However, no mechanical upgrades were introduced to the sedan.
The Ford Fusion is required to be supplanted by another soft-roader wagon and it’s conceivable Lincoln will get its own variant to target premium soft-roaders like Audi and Volvo’s separate Allroad and Cross Country contributions. With the end of the MKZ not long from now, the Continental will be the sole car in Lincoln’s lineup. Tragically for car fans, the Continental is believed to be on re-appropriated time also and is expected to
bow out after the 2021 model year.
