2021 Ford Fusion Coming Out: New Design and Powerful Engine. We hope that the information we provide can help you and make our website become one of your sources in finding the latest car information. Happy nice day! The future of Ford after uncertain union seems to be the model of the year 2021. A letter to Ford suppliers received from Detroit News shows that the secondary sedan redesign of planned is canceled in 2020.
While this is proof that the definitive FoMoCo is ending dish type 3showers, medium rapidly aging sedan, there has been an overhaul since 2012 has stalled in front of sale as Americans continue to transition from Crossovers cars. Merging the sale of a decline of 21 percent in 2017, perhaps not helped by completely redesigned Honda agreement and Toyota Camry dominate further sales limousine.
You could tell it was cobbled together from a Fusion
You could tell it started out as a Fusion sedan as the back was pieced together to crudely look wagon-ish. It looked like a wagon with some extra ground clearance-like an Outback. Around the same time, Ford trademarked “StormTrak.” Maybe it’s coincidental but if Ford were contemplating making a lifted wagon this is probably it.
We know that when Ford announced it was killing off all of its sedans it left out Fusion. Then it came out that Fusion might be used for the name of a new SUV. Soon, AutoGuide was told the next-gen Mondeo, which Ford calls Focus here, would use a stretched Focus platform. That’s the same setup as the 2020 Escape.
Since the StormTrak would use the stretched platform like the Escape, it would use those engines
It would make sense that if this is true the StormTrak would use the Escape’s engines. Those are the 1.5-liter three-cylinder turbo, a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo, and a hybrid model. The all-wheel drive seems like a necessity and would be easy to configure for this platform. So, is this just a lifted station wagon trying to be a small Fusion SUV?
This also adds another vehicle to Ford’s portfolio which was decimated by the elimination of all sedans and their variants. Though Ford had announced plans to discontinue the Fusion in 2021 it also said it wanted to utilize the name in the future. Adding a Fusion StormTrak would make for a seamless continuation of the Fusion name.
Over the next few years, we’ll see companies split truck and SUV platforms
We have to expect that as SUVs and pickup trucks increase in sales and as sedans are cut, that all of the car companies will parse model lines. They’ll be looking to plug every hole and add to every possible niche it can find. A proven segment like the outdoorsy, all-wheel-drive SUV-like station wagon should be a no-brainer.
Being a stalking horse for new markets is shaky ground for vehicle manufacturers. And, having to create a whole new vehicle for s single market is just as shaky financially due to the huge costs of development. But, if you as a manufacturer can spin-off of an existing model into a whole new segment then you should be on that because it’s a smart and feasible move.
Plus, we love wagons even if the manufacturers like to call them SUVs. No matter what it wants to call them, please Ford, make this.
