Actually, the Focus was replaced by the EcoSport. And, for the record, Ford has:
  • Trucks (Ranger, F-Series)
  • SUVs (Expedition, Bronco)
  • Crossovers (Escape, Explorer, EcoSport, Edge, Flex, Bronco Sport)
  • Cars (Mustang, Fusion)
  • Vans (E-Series, Transit, Transit Connect)
That's not meant to be an exhaustive list.
Fusion is gone as of last year.

I thought they did away with the E series when they introduced the beefed up models of the Transit.

It’s only available in a cutaway E450.

And DONT get me started on those junk wagons they call the Transit!!!!

Forklift forks penetrate the side of a Ford Transit waaaaay too easily.

Or so I heard... From some guy... I wasn't there... YOU CAN'T PROVE ANYTHING!

From the two feedback from the three Ford techs in the family easy to move with a forklift/payloader is not really a bad thing.

Every single Transit in our fleet needs rear brake and tires between 20k and 25k miles. Even the IT dept who carries around maybe 500-600 lbs of stuff in the back.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

IT departments put their heavy objects in the front seats.

Everyone gets (what is commonly known as) the county 20 within the first year or so.

Crossed threads are tight threads.
Not with 4 doors... why ruin a good name? Really, there's a world full of names, stop ruining the old school legacy.
I didn't even notice the 4 doors. You are right, I will go stand in the corner.
