Ford Motor will disclose details later this year of its investment shift to SUVs and crossovers from passenger cars.

On Jan. 17, Ford said it will scale back its lineup. That includes offering far fewer iterations of models that survive the cuts as Ford seeks to become leaner and nimbler to help improve its profit margins.

Executives have said that Ford is implementing business practices focused around Hackett’s mantra of "smart vehicles for a smart world." This includes $14 billion in costs cuts, simplifying orderable products, and tailoring its model lineup to higher-margin segments for different parts of the world.

The investment shift means Ford will focus on performance SUVs and "authentic off-roaders" where the automaker can get higher profits, Jim Farley, president of global markets, said earlier this month.
