However, Automotive News (subscription required) and Reuters have learned from their respective sources that production of the next-generation Fusion, due in 2020, will take place exclusively in China.
Ford said last month it would invest more than 750 million euros ($887 million) in Valencia to produce a new generation of its Kuga sport utility vehicle.
It's not clear what Ford has in store for the Mexican plant, which also produces the Lincoln MKZ.
As reported by both Automotive News and its European subsidiary Automotive News Europe the next Mondeo, and the American-market Fusion (essentially the same auto with minor differences) won't roll out of the current Spanish and Mexican assembly sites.
Ford has also alerted its supplier network that its factory in Hermosillo, Mexico, is on the same limited timeline for Fusion production after having wrapped up USA production at its Flat Rock, Michigan factory in 2016.
In a statement from the company, Ford described the Fusion as "an important part of the Ford vehicle lineup", and promised "We will have more information to share about the next Fusion/Mondeo at a later date".
The automaker noted that those cars will not be shipped to the USA or Europe, and will instead stay in other foreign markets.
Ford in a new strategy outlined in October said there will be fewer nameplates in the future, though the automaker didn't say which current nameplates would be axed.
The Ford Focus and Fusion are battling in shrinking segments as Americans continue to prefer larger trucks, SUVs and crossovers to passenger cars.
All automakers in the US are considering alternatives if the Trump administration withdraws from the North American Free Trade Agreement. The hubbub led to Ford confirming production of a new Ranger and Bronco in MI to fill the void of the Focus.
However, the manufacturer has denied the report, saying it has no plans to end Mondeo/Fusion production in Spain and Mexico, and import the models from China.
Stay tuned for an update.
