In an effort to maximize profitability, the company announced that, in the 2020 model year, the only passenger car Ford will produce for the North American market is the iconic Mustang, choosing instead to focus on SUV and truck sales, which have been strongest for the company in the past few years.

We have to believe, however, that market forces will change and some of the cars might make a comeback in the North American marketplace.
