Ford announced they are planning to build large rear-wheel-drive cars for the Ford and Lincoln brands. "We need to understand the role of those vehicles, given the change in the market mix," But Kuzak told Automotive News.

The decision has been made due to high gas prices.

Ford is also considering to offer four-cylinder engines in full-sized trucks such as the F-150; add more small cars to the lineup and expand its EcoBoost engine technology — a combination of turbochargers and gasoline direct injection — beyond an announced target of 500,000 vehicles annually by 2012.

bigger cars means bigger weight, bigger engines and bigger fuel consumption. i don’t think that building bigger cars is a good idea unless they find a way to increase the miles per gallon.
