Ford plans to make fusion longer, bigger and stronger  2019 Ford Fusion "data-mycapture-src =" https://www.gannett-cdn.com/presto/2018/07/11/PDTF/a31f237d-4b02-4e68-90d1-3fd673b9f8ea-2019_Ford_Fusion.jpg " data-mycapture-sm-src = "https: //www.gannett-cdn.comhttps: //www.gannett-cdn.com/presto/2018/07/11/PDTF/a31f237d-4b02-4e68-90d1-3fd673b9f8ea -2019_Ford_Fusion.jpg? Width = 500 & height = 297 "/> 2019 Ford Fusion Sedan (Photo: Ford Motor Company) Ford wants to get rid of the traditional Fusion saloon in favor of a longer, larger and more powerful version  The new design, which has no scheduled release date, is intended to capture buyers driving the Subaru Outback car and possibly even the BMW 5 Series hatchback. "While current Ford Fusion production will finish in a few years, we will likely continue use the name because of its prominence, positive imagery and value with consumers, "said Mike Levine, product manager for Ford North Ame rica. "However, it's too early to speculate on what the new vehicle might look like." He went on to emphasize that consumers are moving away from cars in crossovers, SUVs and hatchbacks. "All car sales are down," Levine said. "We want to go where the consumer wants to go, they want vehicles with more ride height, more interior space, more versatility, customers love fusion, but watch vehicles evolve, we're swirling to new silhouettes, silhouettes that are better which consumers are looking for today. " No question, the Ford Fusion has a loyal following. "It was a good reliable car, a good seller for us in the last 10 years or so," said Joe Wood, new car sales manager at Northgate Ford in Port Huron. "The fact that Ford is reducing the number of cars alerts the people who are loyal brokers, and keeping the name, a solid brand, would be a smart idea." Industry analysts watch as Ford and its merger interest be redesigned. "Ford wants to ruin Subaru's impressive sales growth with a raised car," said Dave Sullivan, Product Analysis Manager at Auto Pacific, Inc. "This type of car is really the anti-SUV, and it looks like it has all the functionality and the benefit of a crossover without the stigma of transporting children or groceries.The lower SUV height helps with charging roof kayaks and has been proven to resonate with people with a certain lifestyle.These buyers tend to be in very good financial health to be and are highly coveted at the retail level.

The F-Series is a Fortune 500 company in itself. However, some industry observers are questioning the strategy to move from the Fusion sedan to a larger silhouette. "There is not much sales volume in sports cars, which does not exist," said Eric Noble, Product Development Consultant and Professor of Vehicle Technology at Art Center College of Design, Pasadena. "When Ford announced it would drop the merger, three or four other medium-sized automakers danced in. Fusion is a very competitive car, and the only sports car that has done well in North America over the past 25 years is the Subaru Outback is a segment of 1. So Ford goes from a segment that sells really well, to a segment that has never really sold well. "
