According to automobile publications, July 21 of this year will be discontinued mass production of the American mid-size Ford Fusion sedan and its more luxurious analogue Lincoln MKZ.

The American mid-size Ford Fusion sedan will be discontinued very soon. Just a few days ago, we learned that the only sedan in the lineup of the brand will be discontinued on July 21. It turns out that the premium four-door Lincoln MKZ, which is built on the same platform as the Ford Fusion, will also cease to exist on the same day. It is worth noting that Lincoln is owned by Ford.

 According to the FordAuthority online community, the most recent luxury sedan will roll off the assembly line at Ford Hermosillo in Sonora, Mexico on July 21.

This is the same factory that also collects the more massive Fusion. It is reported that all previously available trim levels will be discontinued, including the MKZ Hybrid and MKZ Black Label. Ford plans to fill vacant production facilities with the revived Bronco Sport SUV.

Given the above, the 2020 model year will actually be the last for a luxury sedan. Over the last year of production of the MKZ model, it received the long-awaited updates, including new systems and auxiliary assistants, additional body colors, new rims and a different design of the false radiator grille, which changed for each specific configuration. There were no mechanical improvements.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that the Lincoln Monster Truck or a crazy off-road limousine. An enthusiast from Origon (USA) decided to create an unusual version of the Lincoln Town Car limousine.
