Of course $11 billion in investments can eat into profits. So it’s probably too soon to tell whether the company’s turned the corner or not, but the move to drop sedans and most cars—including the Fiesta, Focus, Fusion, and Taurus—from its lineup to make way for more crossovers, SUVs, and EVs is the strategy in a nutshell.
