      With the Fiesta discontinued, Ford only makes 2 cars now.





      The rest are all trucks, vans, and SUVs

      Lincoln MKC?

      All they did was retire the name. The car is still here, in its next generation, with a new name.

      Fake news.

      The corsair was technically all new based on the new Escape; I got schooled on this argument already.

      I had no idea the Taurus and Flex were still in production. Wow. Talk about out of date.

      All new except for the trunklid! That sucker was so expensive they carried it over with new holes for the tail lights.

      That was my reaction to about half of those vehicles, I thought they already were out of production.

      Eh, most of those cars are not memorable to me. I'm sure they're all fine as transportation, but not exactly something that's interesting. This just seems to represent that normal people are choosing a different path for the normal vehicles they typically buy. I do wonder though, when they say that the VW Sportwagen is dead, does that mean it's actually dead or on hiatus until the mkVIII becomes available? The only car on the list that I'm maybe a little sad they're doing away with is the XJ. Always liked the styling of these and thought they were pretty solid vehicles. Not something I have any great interest in owning---which I guess is a common sentiment.

      Um, yeah--it's the next generation of that vehicle, on a new platform--just like what happens with every carmaker.

      It's the exact same place in the lineup, the same size, etc. So they moved to an updated platform and made upgrades--it's still the same car, just the next generation.

      All they did was retire the name at the same time.

      It's things like this that carmakers use to try to get (stupid) people to buy into their continuing embarrassing failures. "What, they're not buying it? Change the name!" The VP gets his bonus and moves on, and everyone comes to realize it's still the same thing they've always been fed.

      I think the MKC sold pretty well (it wasn't a failure).
      Lincoln changed names because TCL and car enthusiasts hate alphanumeric names on American cars.

      Same here. The holy grail is the Sportagen 4 motion, 6 speed manual. I believe the last manual true wagon (no cladding or lift) sold in the U.S.

      ID.4 and ID.5 will respectively be a wagon-like crossover and an actual wagon. Both are rear engine and RWD.
      No need for the sad.

      Ditto for the CTS and ATS.
      Each of those will receive a direct replacement, but with an altered naming convention.

      So Jag gave up on the XJ SAD, as the current one led the way with bringing back style to the D class(since the e65) , wasnt it also the first with a digital cluster also

      I've heard rumors that the hiatus may be temporary and it may come back to the US in 2021 with the introduction of the MKVIII.

      I hope that's the case, but who knows what VW is up to.

      Maybe not the MKC, but this tactic is familar ground for anyone whose paid attention to the car business.

      I don't think they count body styles. They also called the Cruze a subcompact, which it's definitely not.
