Yes, that’s what The Sleuth’s sources have discovered. Apparently the Blue Oval automaker has the popular Subaru Outback wagon in its sights and plans to create a similar model with standard all-wheel-drive and a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, or an optional V-6. Rumor has is that the Fusion name is being retained due to pressure from Ford dealers who believe that it’s is familiar with car buyers. The Fusion wagon is expected in 2020 as a 2021 model.
The Fusion sedan is on the way out, but the name might be used for a new wagon model.
