    Ford/Lincoln Future Product Forecast

    Production for the Ford Edge (CD539) has been moved ahead to September 2021 from December
    2021. The program code for Ford Edge (CD539(ng)) has been updated to CDX706. In addition,
    production has been moved ahead to October 2021 from January 2022.

     Current‐generation Ford Escape (C520)’s facelift timing has been moved to March 2016 from June
    2015; production will end November 2018. Subsequently, timings for the Ford Escape (C482) have
    been adjusted at both Cuautitlán and Louisville Truck with SOP December 2018, a refresh for January
    2022, and EOP for August 2024.

     EOP for Ford Explorer (U502) has been moved back to December 2018 from September 2018. This
    results in a timing shift for the Ford Explorer (U625 having an SOP in January 2019, a facelift for
    January 2022, and an EOP for December 2025).

     Rather than the next‐generation Fiesta, the C484 program will be a Small Car to replace the Fiesta at
    Cuautitlán.

     The Ford Flex (D471) and Lincoln MKT (D472) EOPs have been moved out three years from December
    2015 to December 2018.

     Program code for the next‐generation Mustang (S550(ng)) has been changed to S650 and the SOP has
    been shifted back from January 2022 to May 2020. Subsequently, the EOP for the S550 has been
    moved to April 2020.

     The lifecycle for the Ford Taurus (D258) has been extended out beyond our forecast horizon to June
    2023 from June 2017.

     EOP for the Lincoln Continental (D544) has been moved from March 2022 to May 2023 and therefore
    shifting the next‐generation out of the forecast horizon.

    Added a Large Sedan to the forecast for Lincoln with a program code of CD714, SOP of July 2020,
    facelift of Jul‐2023, and EOP of June 2026.


     Lincoln Midsize SUV (U611) SOP shifted from February 2019 to January 2019.
    16

     The next‐generation Lincoln MKX SOP was moved out from January 2021 to March 2022. The
    program code was also changed from U540(ng) to CDX707. The facelift for the CDX707 was changed
    as well from December 2023 to March 2025 and the EOP from December 2026 to February 2028. The
    U540 EOP was shifted as a result from December 2020 to February 2022 and the facelift from
    November 2017 to May 2018.

     The Lincoln MKZ (CD533) EOP was extended from July 2018 to June 2019. The next‐generation MKZ
    (CD622) was moved from the Hermosillo plant to Flat Rock Assembly with an SOP of July 2019 (was
    August 2018), facelift of July 2022 (was July 2021), and EOP of June 2026 (was July 2024).

    Based on what's provided at the link, it looks like Lincoln may be getting an entirely new large-sedan to complement the Continental.

    It's also interesting to note that the Flex and MKT have been given a stay of execution (at least until 2018).

    For me, the interesting part is moving the MKZ to Flat Rock. Thus far, it is looking like Flat Rock will be the Lincoln "car" plant. I think that is cool. Make your most expensive, luxury products in the US.

    Very good.

    Production for the Ford Edge (CD539) has been moved ahead to September 2021 from December
    2021.
    The program code for Ford Edge (CD539(ng)) has been updated to CDX706. In addition,
    production has been moved ahead to October 2021 from January 2022.
    So which is it?

    Based on what's provided at the link, it looks like Lincoln may be getting an entirely new large-sedan to complement the Continental.
    ....or replace it.

    If I read this correctly, the MKZ will be alive an entire year longer (in its current form).

    Keeping the MKT and Flex on longer is a great idea. I just hope this means that MKT will get the new Lincoln front end and a bit of a refresh all around. It CAN'T go on another 3 years in current form, that will just be embarassing.

    The current-gen Edge's EOP is September 2021. SOP for CDX706 is October 2021.

    The first is the stop of production for the current generation. The second is the start of the new generation ("n.g.").

    WOW - Lots of heavy, far-out (as in calendar) stuff!

    Doesn't really belong here, but from page 10

    Also, GM will drop Buick Verano (D1SB) production in North America in September and source the model from China going forward.

    Make everything here. That jumped out at me too, I liked that.

    Also like that new big CD sedan, yo.

    MKT is just an unappealing product in general, but I too would like to see it get worked over.

    Yeah, just seems like a waste. It's a good size, and we know that the market is begging for CUVS. Certainly needs significant work to the exterior, but that's still easier than starting from nothing.

    If it's sticking around until the Aviator shows up, and it looks like it will, an MCE does seem like a smart idea.

    This would be supplementing it, not replacing it. Compare the two product life cycles.
