Re: David Woodhouse resigns

Woodhouse is going to Nissan/Infiniti where he has more freedom designing the 'future' of transportation, without being held back by the history of last century. Based on the Nissan/Infiniti concepts, Woodhouse will be designing for the future that looks nothing like the past. Along with being able to design something other than a big box on wheels that looks like all the other big boxes on wheels.

I see Ford pushed the Fusion out to 2021 now as consumers push back on higher SUV prices and the competiton benefits from higher compact sedan/hatch back sales.

Ford/Lincon is rapidly becoming their grandparents car brand.

Fusion will be dead by 2020... in America. No more Fusion. No more sedans. Sedans are not profitable (at least for Ford) rigth now.

Fusion is still profitable out of Mexico, otherwise ford would be stopping the surge in sales that's happening. The real reason is that they need the production space at Hermosillo for Transit Connect and AVs, the companion compact truck and Baby Bronco....


The absolute irony in all of this is that Ford's AV partner is using Fusion for development purposes. Had Ford put just half a spit of support into the last MCE, Fusion's Titanium buyers wouldn't have deserted it.


In other news,

Bronco Eng package has been handed over to North America, Tooling try outs of bodies were successful in April and the the SWB F150 mule looks to be unrelated to the mid sized T6 Bronco... I wonder if this is the fast tracked project Hackett was talking about, I hope they go really hard at the market and make Bronco into a sub brand.

Re: David Woodhouse resigns

Woodhouse is literally the face of Lincoln design, and he will be absolutely missed.

Re: David Woodhouse resigns

Fusion sales have spiked lately, primarily due to no new product combined with Escape transition. Once new Escape and baby Bronco are in showrooms, Fusion sales will drop significantly. Even if Ford rolled out all new Fusion, sales increase would be modest.
