sub-A.M.P architecture for 50 global markets? ...or?

today's FordAuthority article about
Major Ford India Announcement Coming Tomorrow
links back to a Feb article I missed...

Ford India To Restructure, Refocus Efforts
by Aaron Birch — Feb 22, 2016


... The regional arm of Ford Motor Company is consolidating from two separate entities into one, and serving as a development base for a new platform that will underpin a majority of the automaker’s vehicles for emerging markets.

According to Wards, Ford India – the regional entity that tackles local production, sales and exports – is merging with Ford Motor Ltd., which handles product engineering and information technology services. Meanwhile, the forthcoming vehicle platform is being developed by Ford India’s Global Engineering Center, and is flexible enough that it ought to enable production cost savings of around 8 to 10 percent.

Ford India’s plans promise to transform the regional arm into a development, engineering, and production hub in its own right, with the automaker targeting some 50 global markets to receive India-built Ford passenger vehicles in the future...
...India’s ... market that’s expected to become the world’s third-largest by 2019...

I'm wondering if we might finally hear something that pertains to ALL non-cD6 vehicles
?

It seems reasonable to guess that whatever follows will likely be electrified to some extent and have some basic self-drive capabilities.

that'd sorta-make the ideas that cD6 is shelved more likely ... altho:

I'm wondering
IF cD6 could be re-thunk as "less-inclusive", less jack-of-ALL-trades = multi-variants within a "school-of-architecture"
&or
IF-maybe Fomoco *discovered* something while cD6'ing that meant a restart was worthwhile??

rather surprisingly, starting at post#24,
this BON thread ought be 'required reading' for cD6 speculation

Ford will be introducing an electrified Explorer, but not this CY.

Explorer will likely be all-new shortly (think MY 2020 or so).

Re: CD7(4+3) VS D6/CD6: best guess> INSIDE SCOOP?

Some info from PREMiERdrum at BOF:

Quote:
-CD6 alive and well... "we'll see evidence of soon"
-What started as the Model E project has now come to umbrella several products. C and C/D entries accelerated on the new architecture.
-Aggressive updates to F-150 and Super Duty coming fast and furious... blood in the water for the GM twins, and some Ram product coming could help land "a one-two punch."
-Bronco and Ranger are getting some balls in their launch plans... finally

Current Vehicles:
2009 Ford Flex Limited w/ AWD
Light Ice Blue/White Suede Roof | Med. Lt. Stone Interior | Vista Roof
2018 Ford Mustang GT Convertible
Lightning Blue | Black Top | Black Interior
