    At a shareholder meeting Thursday, Ford CEO Jim Hackett and Executive Chairman Bill Ford vigorously defended the company's decision to discontinue all sedans in the company's lineup, reports Automotive News.

    Shareholders questioned Hackett and Ford repeatedly about the decision, which will leave the Mustang and a crossover version of the Focus as Ford's only car offerings in the U.S.

    Critics view this move as short-sighted since it abandons segments favored by entry-level buyers. It may also leave Ford ill-prepared for a drastic increase in gas prices, though fuel sippers like the Fiesta and Focus will continue to be built and sold elsewhere in the world.
