Ford to cease production of certain sedans

Interestingly, Ford is ceasing production of nearly all their sedan model vehicles, save for the Ford Mustang and Ford Focus.  This won't affect the popular F-Series vehicles, nor the crossover models like the Edge.  Rather than a move away from sedans it appears this is a move towards crossover vehicles.  

The Detroit News goes on to say:

Dearborn — Ford Motor Co. plans to trim $25.5 billion in operating costs by 2022 and cut its North American passenger car lineup by more than 80 percent, eliminating the Taurus, Fiesta, Fusion, C-Max and Focus sedans within a few years.

CEO Jim Hackett said Wednesday that Ford will not make the next generation of those sedans, confirming months of reports that the automaker was considering cutting some of its unprofitable car models in favor of trucks and SUVs. The Mustang will be soon be Ford’s only car; the new Focus will launch next year in North America as the Chinese-built Focus Active crossover.
