Default Ford to drop autos?

How Ford made America fall in love with pick-up trucks - Fast Company
10,000 dollar profit per Truck? Say what? Ford to drop cars!?
“In general, pickup trucks, and their less-rugged siblings, SUVs, generate more profit per unit than passenger cars. According to Bloomberg, the average price of a full-size pickup truck is around $45,000, with a profit margin of roughly 25 percent; the average price of a mid-size sedan, on the other hand, is around $22,000 with a 10 percent profit margin.”

I can't see them giving up the Mustang or the Lincoln cars, SUV and Trucks will slow down in sales as gas keeps going up and they will need some cars to attract customers.
