Ford discontinued most of its core sedans and hatchbacks last year, including the Fiesta, Focus, and Taurus. The midsize Fusion will follow suit after the 2020 model year, allowing Ford to encourage potential sedan customers into the new-for-2020 Escape or Explorer. The Fusion offered snappy Aston Martin–inspired design cues and a few interesting powertrain options – the 325-horsepower, twin-turbocharged Fusion Sport jumps to mind – but it just isn’t as popular with midsize sedan buyers to justify its current existence.
