Ford has built the Fusion in North America up until now. But as of 2020, MotorTrend reports that Ford has told its suppliers, the third generation will not be built in Mexico. The automaker also released a statement saying it won’t export the next-gen Fusion from China to North America and Europe, which raises the question of whether or not Ford will still sell the Fusion in America.
If Ford decides to not keep the Fusion in the North American lineup it would be the highest-volume car to go out of production in a single region. What are your thoughts?
This week on PowerNation Katie’s featured ride is a rare 1969 Pontiac GTO Judge. Owner Bill Stovall got it from a salvage yard 18 years ago and did a total frame off restoration back to like factory new. Only 58 came with the Ram Air-4 engine with automatic transmission. That classic color is “Carousel Red” with an interior as stock as it came with black bucket seats, an AM radio, no power seats or power brakes. As Bill says “This is a muscle car that takes muscle to drive”. Along with the tech from our four shops, Team Summit NHRA Funny Car racer Tim Wilkerson has a tech tip on relays. Check it all out this week on PowerNation.
And from all of us here at the Tech Center we wish you a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy NewYear!!
