"The redesigned Focus will go into production in the second half of 2019 and most North American models will be built in China."

Not just China, but I try to steer clear on any imports when people here need the jobs. Wife just bought a new Cherokee which is the most American made car obtainable today along with the Wrangler. I hope the Chinese Ford is a flop.

Another one to stay away from, along with Volvo.

And what about Fusion? Have they decided where they are going to be making it now, or are they killing it off altogether?

Maybe here in the USA there was a very slim profit margin on the Focus and needed to be manufactured in China ?

It's the fancy loaded trucks that Ford enjoys the big juicy profits.

Yep - and with the whole trend with trucks, even the luxury brands are scared. Lexus is doubling-down on SUVs, I wouldn’t be surprised if Cadillac brings back the Escalade EXT.

The internet advises me that the Toledo-built Jeep Wrangler/Cherokee are the most American made vehicles for domestic parts content, sourced engine/transmissions, and U.S. jobs supported...independent if Fiat owns them. This board still has a problem with analyzing globalism as it relates to vehicle product because it's often all over the map and changes yearly.

I believe that is the cars.com rating? They changed the metric for the rating to includes sales. How many workers made the car for each sale. I don't think that's as good as total USA jobs supported, like the Camry was number one. The window sticker has the content, have a picture? I was surprised when looking at cars that things like the Corolla were made in Mississippi.

So much for the old story Jeeps were going to be all made in China.

By sending the Focus from China is a perfect example of how cheap steel will still come in tariff free as finished goods.
