The current generation Mazda 6 will soon enough be replaced by a whole new model. That new car, scheduled to debut as a 2014, will be built at one of Mazda’s Japanese plants instead of the Flat Rock, Michigan facility. With production of the current 6 officially ended, the automaker’s presence in the U.S. is over. The plant, which was a joint venture with Ford and Mazda, will be retooled for the 2013 Ford Fusion.
According to Autoblog, the AutoAlliance International plant will continue to be jointly owned even though Mazda will not continue building there. The split of the stake will stay 50-50 but Ford will put a big investment into its grounds. To get ready for the upcoming new Fusion, the Blue Oval will drop $550 million into the plant which was once the home of the Ford Probe. While Mazda will no longer be inside the U.S., they will continue to build in Salamanca, Mexico.
