Did Ford dump the Hatchbacks for 2009?

I can't find it on Ford's website and if I call my dealer I'll be getting callbacks for a month. If they did, they don' deserve a bailout, they deserve to go under.

If I remember correctly, 2007 was the last of the hatchbacks.

yeah dude, there were no hatches in 2008...2009 models are the same, no hatch and no wagon. you get the coupe instead. which is growing on me. it's like any previous focus, with a few small mods, they can look quite good. though i like my hatch :D

Maybe they'll bring a hatch back when they unify the production line

hatches will return in 2010 with the introduction of the 5 door european design to the U.S. line. No word on the engine(s) that will be offered but lets all hope that the ecoboost will be an option like it will be on the fusion and taurus.
