Ford sees its future in small cars, but it won’t have to reach far to get them.
It seems that the blue oval is considering converting some truck plants to begin producing cars with better fuel efficiency.
While this means spending cash to re-tool manufacturing facilities, the investment will not be as great because much of the engineering has already been worked out as these cars are already on the road in Europe.
Ford is keeping quiet about which cars may make the move, but creditable rumors indicate that one car being considered is the Mondeo(pictured above).
Ford is not expected to make an official comment on the full plan until after it releases an earnings report on Thursday.
