2012 NAIAS: Ford Fusion

January 9th, 2012

2013 Ford Fusion

     One vehicle that we have been anticipating for months is the all-new 2013 Ford Fusion. We spotted several heavily disguised mules around Detroit that made us anxious to see just what Ford had up its sleeve. When the fresh sheetmetal was rolled onto the turntables today we were far from disappointed. As contemporary as Ford has kept the Fusion, the new model leaps forward with an attractive 6-window greenhouse complemented by a low Aston Martin-like grille rather than the chrome 3-bar piece formerly decorating the car’s nose. 
      Ford hopes to appeal to a wide variety of mid-size car buyers by offering an array of diverse powertrains. Ford’s new mid-sizer offers turbocharging with direct injection, hybrid, and plug-in hybrid powertrains as well as automatic and manual transmissions as well as auto start-stop technology. The Fusion also will be available with several technologies that Ford believes consumers will consider must-have. These include a Lane Keeping System, adaptive cruise control, active park assist and MyFordTouch. We can expect to see a nearly identical vehicle sold in Europe and other markets as the Mondeo.
